    Hi,

    this is my sad :( story:

    One of my friends dad has been in China and bought this 10" tablet for me. I tried to put in on yesterday. This happened:

    1- I connect the tablet with the charger, the light on tablet front shows red.
    2- I hold down the power button, it gives a vibration sound for a second, shows logo "infotmc" and then a screenimage of a cloud/lightening, and then shuts down.
    3- I click on the power button. When the cloud/lightening-image come, I hold down the power button + menu button, gradually the image gets dimmer and dimmer, and then the screen gets blank and shuts down.
    4- And here i am now. The charging light comes on, and the tablet vibrates when I press the power switch. but the screen stays blank. I don't recall seeing this problem in any thread or forum.
    5- If i charge the tablet for some time, the charging light starts blinking in red. God knows what this means ?

    Is the tablet gone and dead ?? :( today i bought an microsd card, thought i might install an firmware on it and try to start the tablet. But i dont even know the exact make of this 10" tablet and what firmware to install on it.

    Ive taken pictures of my tablet, could someone please verify if this is a flytouchII or something else ? Here are links to the tablet pictures:

    It is a Gome Flytouch II
    Try following the update instructions link to in my Signature. The update should work if your tablet's functional.
    Btw, before you start, make sure you have a written copy of the registration code.

    I hope this helps,

    Press the key sequence listed in the thread and then it's the bottom option (just keep hitting vol - about 6 times then menu) Remember to follow the rest of it exactly... It could be you have a faulty screen though


    I hope this works as these are great devices,
