    Hi

    I have a MID ANDROID tablet. Its 7 inch mod.

    My initial problem is that I cant't switch it on, the power button is broken and the power switch on the mb has come loose totally.
    Is there any other way to switch it on??

    When I connect the charger the tablet pc starts to charge and shows the android battery charging icon mid screen for a few seconds then black screen.

    I was told to connect the USB to my macbook and that should power it on but it doesn't, just charge sign again.

    I really need to get this working ASAP and will only open and solder the button back on the mb when I know its working.

    Please help me with this if you know how to power it on without using the button.


    Thanks for reading.
    :cool:

    welcome to the forum

    This is your 2nd thread about this and since that violates the forum guidelines I deleted the other thread.

    I'm afraid that if plugging your tablet into the charger that it came with or into a USB port doesn't turn on you are pretty much stuck.

    Let the tablet charge overnight on the stock chrager. Then try connecting it to the Mac or a PC.

    Thanks for your answer.

    It is fully charged now, I have a pc and mac infront of me when I connect the tablet via pc the battery on the tablet shows but then goes.

    What can I do now, I have ordered another one but I would still like to get this working if at all possible.

    Thank you:eek:
