Problem: The battery runs out far to quickly. Does anyone else's have such poor battery life?
Generally speaking, the bigger the screen and the more functions in use (e.g. bluetooth, wifi, gps etc), the faster your battery will run down. Google "Typical Battery life" for your tablet and see what other people are getting. If you are getting much (more than about 40%) worse battery life and you have turned off all unnecessary applications, functions and services, your unit may have other issues and you should contact the manufacturer / your retailer to investigate further. Number 1: Turn off unnecessary functions Number 2: Turn the screen brightness down Number 3: Get a battery saver app that will show you what's using your battery so much. 0 out of 0 people found this solution helpful.
Problem: Horrible distortion coming from the speaker.
Turn the volume down - does that solve the problem? If you are getting distortion on all sounds, your speaker may be damaged. If you can play some sounds fine and others are distorted, it is probably not a speaker issue, rather a problem with the specific files or applications you are using. Try to turn the volume down within that application and see if that helps.
It can be any one of a number of reasons. For example, once a pin had got stuck in the speaker grille - it was magnetically attached! - and when I removed it, the distortion was gone! Check your speaker for contamination. 0 out of 0 people found this solution helpful.
Problem: I dropped it an cracked the screen. It still works, but now I have a huge scratch down the front.
Cracks and scratches are different things. Cracked screens are more serious and might need to be replaced, but scratches can occasionally be removed, depending on how deep they are. You might want to try a scratch remover (like 3M's) or gently rubbing with a piece of cardboard, but a better way to repair it is to get a film screen protector - it will prevent future scratches, is easy to apply and sometimes makes shallow scratches less visible. 0 out of 0 people found this solution helpful.
Problem: Help! I have completely immersed my tablet in water, now it's not working? What can I do? Is the water damage permanent?
It's not necessarily broken. But - VERY IMPORTANT - don't press the buttons, plug it in, or try to turn it on in ANY WAY! You have to leave it to dry before passing an electrical current through it. Leave it for a few days without power. When you are sure that the water inside has evaporated (some people leave them in boxes of dried rice to absorb the water), you can try turning it on again. But DON'T USE IT FOR A WHILE YET! If you want to be safe, leave it in a dry place for a week. You can't use it today or tomorrow, it's too soon. 0 out of 0 people found this solution helpful.

Its probably a prank app. 0 out of 0 people found this solution helpful.
Check (1) the volume setting (may be different for different apps) and (2) check any speakers or earphones you are using by trying them out on a different device. 0 out of 1 person found this solution helpful.
Problem: It keeps freezing, locking and rebooting, shutting itself down and restarting. It's so frustrating!
Check the app you're using at the time - certain apps take a lot of processing power. Now I'm not necessarily saying you don't have enough power to run the app (I don't know what app you're using or how many you're using at the same time!) but it's worth noting that many tablets reduce their processing power when the battery is low - have you noticed this? 0 out of 0 people found this solution helpful.

Problem: I have had my tablet for about 13 months now and lately my screen has been freezing so I've had to turn it off and last night it wouldn't leave the acer screen. I then tried to factory reset it but now its frozen on a screen that says 'formatting data', I don't know what to do and its becoming annoying to deal with.
Problem: My tablet screen has become dark and it never use to be like that. I checked the settings to see if there's something that could adjust the problem but there's none so I don't know what else to do
Problem: My son's tablet has a problem when you power up the bit to complete password comes up but you cannot enter anything - the keyboard does not appear and the within 30 seconds or so the tablet turns off... resetting does not seem to make any difference. The time & dare shows correctly but there does not seem to be any way to input the password.
Problem: The charge that comes with the tablet is not charging it... Normally once you plug the charger into the tablet it lights up and battery level shown but it started lighting up every second and not charging then it eventually stop responding plus the blue light it not coming on on the tablet anymore when te charge is connected.
If you have a problem and the tablet is under a year old, contact your retailer to arrange a repair or replacement. Under the Sale of Goods Act, you should be covered for at least a year and maybe longer.
Taking a tablet apart is an absolute last resort. Do so at your own risk.
