    Santa brought a MIDX5A tablet. Occasionally there was a problem which necessitated the battery being fully drained and then recharged to serve as a reset. Is there a key combination to press or a pinhole to poke to reset this device? Also now, pressing the power on button only activates the green power light for a couple of seconds then the light goes off, without the device powering up. Has anybody had this problem? How was it resolved?

    Thanks

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    My X5A has a small hole right next to SD Card slot. (about 4-5mm) to one side. For me there is a small microswitch button. If you lightly press that, I get a power reset. Mine is about 4 Month old.

    I am curious. What is causing your lockups. My X5A has been about the most rock-solid device I have. I have not needed to force a reboot more than 3-4 times.

    Cheers

    X5a / X6d Factory Reset [HR][/HR]The later versions of the X5a / X6d have a mechanical method of entering factory reset if you are unable to switch the device on and go through the android menu system.

    Firstly, start with the device turned off.

    Press and hold the Power button & Home key until you see the android logo with an inset exclamation mark.

    Let go of the buttons and press the Menu button at which point you will have some options on screen.

    Select factory reset and, once done, your tablet will turn off

    Switch on again and allow to boot

    Hope that helps

    It worked for me
