    • can't turn on
    • there is no infotmic logo
    • no three finger factory reset
    before succesfully updated my sytabex7 11.2.1.5 with the system update and with the iuw 1.2 with the 11.2.1.5.2.0_beta4.ius in winxp
    but no more, i tried with xp mode with iuw 1.2 on windows 7 and the firmware finished ok but the tablet, removed otg cable and push reset button, now doesn't turn on

    any ideas??

    Mr. Frockit,
    You obviously did your homework so I can't ask for more. Instead, here's some food for thought.
    I broke my resistive touch screen and started mousing about three weeks after getting my SYNET7LP/SYTABEX7.
    The OS crashed every hour or so but came back with the reset button.
    After about one month, I was advised every 30 minutes that application gmailprocess... had stopped unexpectedly and I was prompted to force close.
    Eventually the start up stalled at SYLVANIA.
    I tried mousing for factory reset :NG
    I tried 4 1K resistors joined radially at one end and contacting each of the for touch screen contacts on the other end:NG

    I downloaded something called android_secure from a link near this thread to an SD card:NG
    I asked a friend to put the SD card in an android 2.3 device because Windows couldn't identify the properties.
    Android 2.3 said android_secure lacks valid signatures, and aborted a re-installation.


    I'll report anything interesting.
    Thanks for the starter.

    Did anyone figure out what combination will force it to look at the sd card to read the system.bin file?

    Tablet / Device:
    Sylvania SYNET7LP-DS
    model SYNET7LP-DS
    android DG2.20
    hardware ID 12.7.0.12
    firmware ID DG2.2.1-7C3.B5

    So after extensively reading through the sylvania tablet section and trying out all of the three-fingered salutes for a factory reset. NONE of them work for this SYNET7LP-DS model. I'm suffering from the SD card problem that many others seem to have, yes I tried FAT-32 formatting. Memory is "full" despite nothing on internal memory.
    power-screen-back doesn't work.
    power-back doesn't work.
    power-back-volumeUp doesn't work
    power-menu-back makes it pause on the InfoTmic screen for a long time (1 minute+ ?) and then proceeds onto the Sylvania animation and finishes booting up. pressing other buttons during the InfoTmic screen does nothing.

    I've counted at least 5+ issues of this asked in this forum and no one seems to know what is up. So yet another plea for help for this expensive paperweight :/

    I figured I would post this suggestion/warning in here:

    If you have a Sylvania SYNET7LP-DS that can read microSDs then I would advise that you DO NOT FACTORY RESET the device.

    I had the same microSD issue with my device and I returned it to the store for a replacement. The replacement I received did not have the microSD issue UNTIL I DID FACTORY RESET ON IT.

    Were you able to hook the tablet up via USB? I can't seem to find the right driver running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Also, is there any way you could send me a copy of the android version you have on your working device? I have the same model and I'm trying to reflash it via USB, since it doesn't get past the infotmic screen at startup, doesn't even get to the sylvania one, and the three finger reset doesn't seem to work on this model.

    Thanks in advance, I'm desperate for help, and Customer Service doesn't seem to be too serious about solving this, so I think I'm on my own...

    As far as I can remember it has no issues connecting to my computer (Windows 7 Home 64-bit). I will see what I can do as I have never tried to make a back up copy of a tablet's OS.

    Thanks for your reply, I appreciate you trying... I've tried to get in touch with the manufacturer and everything, and they've so far been entirely unreachable. Looking forward to hearing back!
