Please do the following steps:

First, please turn off your Wifi router (Not your device Wifi. Your home/work wifi router/modem.) for 5 minutes. Turn it back on and try to connect your tablet to wifi.

If that does not work, on your tablet, go back to Wifi Settings. Tap (or tap and hold) the wifi connection. Tap to Forget/delete the Wifi connection. Turn off your tablet and turn it back on. Try to connect to wifi again.

Please let me know if these methods worked or not. Thank you!

Peter,

For photos, you can connect your tablet to computer. Copy your photos to computer first. When done, reset your tablet.

After reset, connect your tablet to Computer and transfer your photos back.

After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents.
