    I have an 8 inch Irulu tablet I really favored. A few days ago, it just stopped booting up. When I press the boot button and hold it, the screen lights up a little but it doesn't boot and the bright screen goes off after a time. Does anybody have any guesses about why this is happening and what, if anything, I can do about it?

    Have you tried a safe boot? (hold volume down while starting it as normal).
    Failing that I would try a factory reset (hold volume up and start as normal, in the menu that comes up use the volume buttons to navigate and power button to select).

    Nothing different happens. How long do you have to hold these buttons. I held them down for half a minute.

    That means it can't perform the boot sequence at all, best case scenario is it will have to have the operating system reinstalled (re-flashed) or worst case scenario you have a hardware failure. In case of the latter it's a question of the repair being more expensive than replacing it.

    To replace my dead (core dead) Irulu 8 inch tablet, I bought a 7 inch X33 IRULU with Android 6.1. This is a fine fast tablet. Very pleased with it (about $50 with shipping).

    Then I let the new 7 inch tablet fall onto the rug from the bed (about 2 feet) and the video crashed--it became lines. I sent ot back for a refund. It was only about 2 weeks. I bought a 7 inch Acer One. I still have a good 10. inch Irulu tablet that works well, but I'm about to give up on Irulu.
