Unknown Tablet Issues
« on: November 06, 2016, 10:19:24 pm »
I have this 7" Digiland android tablet that won't startup for some strange reason. I know it gets warm and charges, but it won't display a thing. Maybe the display got disconnected? It was owned by my 4 year old sister until it stopped functioning.

better not charge it for too long if its not properly working ^^
try connecting it to a computer to see if the device is recognized. If it's just the screen, it should be shown correctly at the pc (new device: strange tablet) :)

That's not really the truth. Even if the tablet notices it's connected to a PC you'd still have to choose 'Media Transfer' and not 'Only Charging' from a menu in order for it to appear on your computer.
So you have to find another way. But to be honest, chances that you can repair that tablet with your knowledge are low. Maybe this motivates you to prove me wrong though.

iirc this might help:
press power, home, volume+ and volume- all at the same time for a couple of secs. that will boot in a special whatever mode that should mke almost every device being visible without any firther adjustments. (works for every smartphone and tablet I know)
then it should show *something* up. or at least make a sound at the computer when it noticed there's something plugged in.
if it does, that's a good sign xD
problem: I dont know how to quit this mode without taking out the battery xD (for some devices just the power button helps, for others it doesnt...

Nope. I've given up.

once there was a time, you know, where I had an iPhone... :(
It was fixed 3 times, adn the back had a different color than the front...
and 2 buttons weren't working from the beginning....
and I was the 4th owner...
But still I really loved it.
But then I broke it (the battery + the power button) :'( :'(

It was a gift from my old teacher...


since that day I never had a smartphone again...

You seem to be very unlucky with phones p2. I had the same problem with Xbox consoles >.< (first 360 didn't detect wireless gamepads then RRoD'ed a few years later, second didn't read discs most of the time and my Xbox One takes forever to install games)
