Hello everyone,

Nice to meet you all.
I have a Coby MID8065 8" 8GB tablet with Android 4.0.3 that is about six month old that won't boot past the initial "coby" screen. I have tried resetting it by the reset button on the right but it didn't help. I also tried holding the power and volume button down ( and vol up just in case ) but tablet will not get past the Coby screen. I have also tried hooking up to my PC with the USB cord but my PC will not recognize it. I have watch several vids on youtube and read several suggestions from other sites but still nothing. I know Coby has gone out of business so I can't use the warranty. Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance

Hi atomiccoal, congratulations on your Coby MID8065 and welcome to the forum. Nice to have you as a member of Android Tablets. I'm moving your thread to the Coby Generation 4 forum for you, where more people familiar with your tablet are likely to join the discussion and try to help you. Good luck!

hold volume up, press and hold power for 5 seconds release power keep holding volume til you see recovery. Now factory reset.

Ty for your response Vampirefo. I tried that. Pushing vol up and down with power button didn't work and I even came across your way of using the ext sd card, but no luck. The tablet still gets stuck at the Coby screen. Any Ideas?

most likely you will need to make a recovery sdcard, I don't have a 8065, all my instructions are for7065, so you would need to adjust for your model.

Even if you need to make a sdcard recovery, you need to be able to boot to recovery. This applies to both internal and external recovery.

Try this thread for a description that may help you (ignore the back button):

Once in recovery choose wipe data/cache

@ atomiccoal, have you done anything to your tablet that caused you not to be able to get into recovery? The method I posted is for a 7065 and such work on your tablet as well.

That post even confuses me, he has a 8065 not a 7042.

Sorry for the confusion. Just trying to help the op get to recovery. The 8065 gets to recovery the same way as a 7042- if you ignore the back button.

Happy new year to you.

Sorry for the delay in response to your questions and ty both for trying to help me with this. Vampirefo I don't know if this was the cause of my problem or coincidence, but I downloaded an app from Amazon the night before and the next morning it was stuck in the loop. I have read and tried several things and nothing will get my computer to recognize the tablet or get the tablet into the recovery screen.
