Jan 3, 2011
Hi, Not sure if i am posting in the right place or not so apologies if i am, I really could do with some advice, i bought a mid 7" android tablet on ebay as a xmas gift, only when it arrived i opened the box and discovered to my horror that it is not working, well either that or i'm doing something wrong, anyways it powers up and boots ok, but thats it! when the screen loads up it says "SLIDE TO UNLOCK" and when i try to unlock it nothing happens, the touchscreen is completely unresponsive and i have no idea what to do, or were to start, anyone with any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks Guys
