    That is the stock recovery, and the firmware update (.zip file) on the external SD card is not a valid firmware update, so you get this message.

    Are you trying to do a firmware update?

    No, my tablet was working perfectly until this morning when I woke up and it was stuck on my apps screen. I turned it off and tried turning it back on but it stayed on the Acer screen and its been acting that way all day. I'm just trying to figure out what to do next....

    I am not an Acer tablet expert. Be patient, someone will be along to help you out. I know how painful it can be when your tablet is not working properly.

    Try holding down the power button until the tablet turns off, usually about ten seconds or so. Then try to power it back on. If that doesn't work you may need to try a factory reset. http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...set-a500-what-acer-support-wont-tell-you.html

    I tried this and as soon as it says "Erasing Cache" the tablet itself turns off and on then it gets stuck on the Acer screen again.

    I would say to try the same thing 2 or 3 more times. It couldn't hurt and might help. But make certain you look at the instructions again as you may have missed one, (or not).;)

    Also try plugging in the tablet for a couple of hours or overnight to make sure it has the battery to make it through the restore process.

    If it won't finish the wipe and boot loops, you will want to call Acer support and check with them about doing a manual firmware flash. It may have an issue with the firmware installed. Worst case, you could have a problem with the internal memory partitions and it may need to go back to Acer for repair.

    I tried the factory reset again a couple times and it did the same thing so right now it's off and I'm letting it charge; maybe that could be the problem it isnt finishing, like you said. I also called Acer Tech Support (TRASH!) and they told me to go to the FAQ. Really? Smh. My next tablet will NOT be an Acer. Lol.
