[Q] Can't Get Pass Opening Screen
3 weeks ago I finally spent the $20.00 and replaced the defected battery in my Sanei N78 tablet. During the week that followed I had no trouble that is till a week later.
After using my Tablet till the battery ran down and shut it self off I plugged it in to recharge. This time however, instead of getting the Android opening screen, I got nothing. So I pressed the power button till the Sanei's logo spinning color wheel page appeared. But, instead of continuing booting on in to the Android opening screen, it just stayed stuck on that spinning color wheel.
Since this has happen to me before I proceeded to use what I call the reset command (pressing the power and up volume buttons simultaneously).
Yet, instead of giving me a choice to reset or not, all I got the Android logo laying on its back with its access panel open and an exclamation point in a red triangle. Which after a few minutes returns to the spinning color wheel page?
I keep trying difference combinations of the power/volume up/volume down buttons; however, all I get is the "dead" Android logo or the spinning color wheel.
I have also tried disconnected the battery and let the Tablet sit unpowered for the next 48 hours - It didn't work
What has gone wrong?
Has the “drive” containing the Android operation system failed? Has Android itself become corrupted? Is there a fix?
When I asked this question to a site that sell only Sanei tablets I was told to hold the power button for 5 to 10 seconds. Well, I have and nothing changes. I was also informed that another answer is to reinstall the firmware.
As for the latter, I would like to try, but, the only way I could is to download it to a thumb drive from the computer I am using to post this message and either run it off that or use my home Win98 OS computer (BTW: I have connected the tablet to my home computer and while 2 drive icons do appear in My Computer any attemp to open them give me a "drive not ready" message. This because this public computer that I am using will not premit under any cirsumstances a tablet to be connected to it
Is this possible?
If not, then I have another paperweight for my desk
