Hi,

I'm having some issues with my sons Teclast P85 mini tablet that was a gift about two months ago. He let the tablet die out and gave it to me to charge, after a few hours of being on the charger I tried to boot it up to give back to him only to see the screen flash every few seconds but not boot up.

I've no idea what is wrong with it as he's done nothing to it (he was sitting next to me when it died out) and am sad for my son as he's completely heartbroken that he can't use it currently.

As I've said though, when I turn it on the tablet only flashes a black screen. It looks like it goes dimmer and then brighter as if it's trying to boot but does nothing. I get no Teclast screen or anything, just the flashing black screen. I've tried to hit the reset button on the back but it has done no good.

Any help would be very very much appreciated! Thanks!

I can only suggest letting it charge longer. Although you said it charged a few hour, it may not be enough since the battery was exhausted completely. Does it do this with it plugged in? Is there any indication that it is charging?

The only indication that it is charging is that it starts flashing again while on the charger. Aside from that I have no way of knowing that it is retaining a charge with the exception that it will still flash even when it comes off the charger until the battery dies again.

I did let it fully charge but still with the same results. It still just flashes brighter to dimmer on the black screen.

My Hipstreet Pilot was working normally; after charging overnight to full I powered up but it got stuck on flashing without booting. Having read various fixing options via google I decided to take off the back, easily unclipped, and remove/replace battery - before I fou8nd battery I noticed "reset" button next to power slot (I'd missed it before opening tablet) - I pressed the button and hey presto - tablet switched off, I left it a few seconds then powered up and all normal. RESET button worked!

sorry new to this site and not an answer but I have a proscan with android and bought it a year ago but after I bought it and it went nuts when the warranty was done 9 months ago so I'm wondering what to do. so when I press the on button it looks like it guna go on but just shows proscan then shuts off then turns on by its self saying proscan and does it over and over again til I press the off button with the volume button. I tried the reset button and the volume with the on switch is there any thing else I can do?and I tried plugging to computer and charging over night
