    Please could someone help. Today after installing some apps and games, I powered off my tablet. Later when I tried to power it up again it started and got to the tap n tap screen, reloaded a few times and then The screen goes blank! It won't do anything not even starting it up in recovery mode. Anyone that can help?

    press and hold the power button for a looong time....and when you think you have held it too long go another 30 seconds.

    if that doesn't work, try combinations such as power and volume down, or power and volume up or power and home...this might find a bootloader hiding somewhere in the tablet

    Hi. Thanks but it didn't help. It does show a screen with what looks like a box opening. But as soon as it's restarted it does the same thong.

    Thanks for the suggestions

    ok, you need to get a recovery onto your MicroSD card, and hopefully you can start from scratch to do a full rebuild.

    Do you have a MicroSD, and do you have a copy of the recovery image? It would be in the update.zip format
