    Vizio 8" Tablet

    Vizio 8" Tablet Flashing V logo after Honeycomb update...

    Today my Vizio 8" tablet updated to honeycomb. After a few hours of use the screen froze. I had to hold in the power button to turn it off. When I turned it on after a couple minutes, all I get is the flashing V logo. I removed the sd card and restarted it with the same results.

    I'm new to this tablet but not to working with computers. I'm assuming the os is hosed. How to I restore the tablet? I've read through some forum posts and am not sure of some terminology like the term "root." This device is new - a couple weeks old - so I've not done anything to it except for the update today - which was automatic, not induced by me.

    Thanks in advance!

    Diana

    I had this problem but managed to fix it without a factory reset! I booted into safe mode (turn off, hold down down volume button, turn on, keep holding down down volume button while booting) then in settings I uninstalled the ADW.Launcher. It is working fine now.

    VTAB1008
    My VTAB1008 was doing as described (flashing V logo at startup) and Safe Mode did not work for me, so I booted in Recovery Mode, getting the following:

    reboot system now
    apply update from /sdcard
    apply update from /cache
    wipe data/factory reset << THIS!!!
    wipe cache partition


    I did the factory reset which fixed the problem. Of course, all my data was lost in the process...

    Good luck!!!
