Proscan PLT1066 10" tablet have downloaded all files from the Proscan web site, and they do not know what's wrong. I need the dis-assembly instructions & a schematic if you know where I might get them, that would be great. I have 20 yrs experience as a e-tech & 30 yrs as Computer Science engineer working with embedded military hardware & software. Thank you.

No, no updates were installed, I just received the tablet from a friend. So I have tried all the usual steps to no avail it's age is unknown but the user says it's over a year old, no receipt. I need to open the case and do an inspection... I am a Elect Tech, a System Admin for both Windoze and Linux, & a senior SW Engineer. So I need disassemble instructions and the schematics
... Also any additional directions you can provide. I have tried to discharge the battery, but i need to remove it to completely deenerize the device.When I attempted the Curtis upgrade with SD Card, it was unable to wipe system memory & cache. I did do it manually. Then started the upgrade, which terminated & the Android guy laying down dead.
