ePad 10.2" will not boot
Hi, having problem with a android base 2.1 system aPad that boots to the screen showing Powered by WowPad, and that's it. Any suggestions? I tried re-starting several times and re-set, but same results. This is all new to me.

I also don't know, I think you can consult your seller for help

I have been having these problems as well. What I have found is that it is either
1. That the battery is not charged enough
2. You installed something previously that is causing the boot to fail.
The way I have managed to resurrect the device is to press the power button and the menu button (I think) at the same time. Keep holding them and after a few seconds you will be shown a menu which gives you to reset the device to factory settings. I have discovered that if you clear the system, then generally the machine will reboot OK next time.
this is a real pain in the ass. I would estimate that the machine actually only boots 1 in 4 times I try and I have had to wipe the machine about 5 times in the 1 month I have owned it.
If anyone has any better techniques I would be very pleased to read them. I am hoping that this will be fixed by a software upgrade at some point in the future. Its a shame really because once I have been able to kick this machine into life I quite like it.

I am having the same issue too! Is there an answer out there? Someone suggested re-flashing the device. New to this, how is reflashing done?
Same Issue - SOMEONE HELP
I have this same issue. I purchased my epad yesterday and it worked fine. I downloaded a few apps, synced mail, etc. I plugged it in last night to charge and left it on the charger over night. This morning I took it to work and it tried to boot. It froze on the "unlock" screen. I reset it via the pinhole reset button. Everytime after that it froze on the "android" black screen.
I flashed it with the original rom. It then began to freeze on the Android Man in the top left corner. I downloaded the newest rom to the sd card and installed from the card. The install proceeded as it should then the screen went black with the blue led lit. I held the power button for 10 secs. Now when I boot it either freezes on the "epad" black screen or the Android Man.
I have read every forum I can find today and no one can help. Please take a minute to respond. There must be someone out there who knows how to fix this issue...and it sure seems common.
Thank you in advance.
I am having the same problem and I honestly do not have a clue how to go about this re-flashing, anyone willing to help? please
