Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q – My tablet won’t turn on – what do I do?

A – first of all check that your tablet hasn’t just gone to sleep to conserve energy. To do this press the small button on the right hand side in – you should then see the screensaver. From there swipe up with your finger as usual.

If this doesn’t do anything, try holding the button in until you feel the tablet buzz – it might just be turned off.

If this doesn’t work, make sure your tablet is charged – place it in the dock and make sure the dock is plugged in and turned on at the socket.

Q – How often do I need to charge my tablet?

A – Your tablet will tell you how much charge (or battery capacity) is left and how long you can use it for until it will need recharged up on the right hand corner of the screen. Every time you put the tablet in its dock – as long as the dock is plugged in – it will charge, even if you’re using the tablet.
