Question about Nextbook Tablets & eReaders
I followed the directions given in the packaging of the Nextbook Ares 8A. First I charged the the tablet and the I connected to my WiFi. It didn't give any other instructions. So I closed the Tablet. Then I opened it and hit the "lock" button which then said swipe to open. I did that but nothing happened. Is there some kind of download I need to get?

Sounds like a bad install on the new operating system. Since your question was posted in April, I'm assuming you have the problem solved by now, or returned the device, but for anyone else looking at this, I suggest either returning the device and exchanging it, or if you prefer to solve it with this device, then leave it on and let the battery run down. Once it is dead, try plugging the device in and powering it on, hopefully that gets you back in business. Blackberry Tech Support is also helpful, their phone number for your country should be on their website.

try to soft reset it by engaging the reset button ..If it has such a button it should be hidden in a hole on the side and need to be pressed until restarts ..(it should be powered and on when you do this) ..
If there is no button ..it means it has something wrong with the touch screen function ...and you should try to see if the screen is not out of focus..and try to swipe it in a certain point ..and if it is indicated..try in near by locations ...If you manage to make it start you should look in the main menu for screen calibration ..and engage it ..this should make the touch screen work proper again .
In worse case you will need the firmware and reset it to factory settings ..

SOURCE: Pplease can anyone help, this is driving me crazy. My ASUS memopad hd7 is locked. it switches on fine and its fully charged, but when i go to swipe the padlock off to open it, nothing happens. ive stu
I'm not sure if it has the same function as the nexus 7.. When the '7' blocks you press the power button andfor about 20 seconds and it switches off and resets itself. ( nothing ventured?)
