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 1 person 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 2 people found this solution helpful.

Problem: When I press the "on" button, the first Acer screen lights up, but instead of the moving Acer screen it goes black, then flashes lighter for a second then nothing. I have tried rebooting by choosing reboot now, still the same... tried reset to factory settings, same thing happened, it did not even recognised that I had chosen that one. Also tried resetting with a pin in the reset hole... same thing

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.
