Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I have turned it off and on . iAM AT SETTINGs wi fi off still will not turn on. please call me XXXXXXXXXX at wits end if you cannot help me refund my credit card charge.

I cannot call sorry, but we need to do a factory reset as it is going to either be the firmware or the actual Wifi Antenna that has fauled.

The reset will remove all data and return the device to new, but there is no way to avoid this.

Go to Settings, Privacy and look for Factory Reset.

If you do not see it, go to Settings, Storage, and press Factory Reset.

Run this and when completed you will need to setup the device like you did when you first received it.

Once setup, try to turn on wifi and if it still fails then we know the actual Antenna has faulted.

Let me know the results please

Thank you
