Customer Question
I have an A8...

I have an A8 tablet. I have had a lot of apps on it and it was getting sluggish. then this morning i got a warning of a virus, so i tried to do a factory restore. It went into an "erasing" mode and stayed there for several hours. then the tablet went dead. we have tried to recharge it, but i still cannot get it to turn on.

Technician's Assistant: Have you done a hard reset on your device by holding down the power button until it vibrates or beeps?

I tried, but it seems no matter how long i hold the button, it still does nothing. Trying again now.

Technician's Assistant: Has there been any recent damage to your device (e.g. from dropping it or getting it wet)?

No

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Android Expert to know before I connect you?

Yes, i have had the device for several years and have had no real problems with it at all.

Android Device Expert: Cris, Technician replied 7 months ago

Got it.

Can you plug the charger leave it in for about 5 minutes.

Next, while still connected to the charger press and hold the power button for up to 1 minute or until the device turns on. Let me know any change.

I apologize, I tried to research this. Unfortunately I do not have anymore solutions.

How old is the tablet?

Ask Your Own Android Devices Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
About 5 years old.
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 7 months ago

If you have tried multiple outlets and a different power cord but it still will not power on then there is a hardware failure with the tablet.

Since it is outside of warranty, it would cost more to repair the tablet than to buy a new one.
