    my mom gave me her vtab1008 because the usb port broke off and for some reason vizio wouldnt fix it. anyway long story short, i took it apart and put in a dc power jack and port straight to the battery and when i turned it on the screen was backwards. all the words were mirrored backwards and im not sure what the fix would be. i plugged in the three ribbons correctly (i figure) anybody got any ideas. its still charging right now so i havent messed with it yet

    That is strange. I would try a factory reset and see if that works.

    Having the same issue on two VTAB1008's. Both of them have the screen flip upside down and mirror backwards.

    Digging around online, I found this thread. And found one other answer through google. Someone said to push the power button for a brief second or two. After the screen goes off, push it again. It makes the screen come back normal. Problem is, after a few minutes, it flips again. Tried a wipe and restore ... issue still there. Has the Honeycomb 3.2.1.

    Is this a known issue?? Any fix for it? Will going back to Gingerbread solve it?

    Thanks.

    Sounds like you might need to re-calibrate the sensor. I'd power it down and give it a couple of good hard shakes in every direction and see if the helps free it up. There are apps that can reset the accelerometer too and if that doesn't work you can try a factory reset which will also clear your apps and data though.

    Tried a factory reset. Didn't solve ... either buggy honeycomb or hardware problem. Just odd that both are doing the same thing. Screen will flip 180 degrees upside down. As well as display everything backwards, as if looking at it in a mirror.

    You will be forced to use it in front of a mirror until it gets fixed. ;)

    Is it possible there's some hardware setting somewhere, or that in disassembling/reassembling the thing a plug got put in wrong??

    I downgraded to Gingerbread, that made no difference.
    Now I'm stuck there, because the update server won't serve me an update (they tried to reset the unit, but no go).

    Anybody know where I can find the image for the Honeycomb version for this tablet?
