Question 26: What should I do if my tablet will not turn on?

[ Edited ]
  • Connect your tablet to a computer. If the battery level is above 10%, it should turn on. If the battery level is below 10%, the charge indicator should appear on the screen and your tablet will not turn on until it is charged above 10%.
  • Your tablet’s battery may have been over-discharged. Connect your tablet to your computer and allow it to charge for several hours. Then, press and hold the power button until your tablet turns on (this may take up to 30 seconds).
