    Prestigio Tablet 9th Oct 16 at 4:11 PM
    I am looking for info regarding this tablet:

    My 11 yo gd has just blown her second Hudl2, both went the same way: charged up fine, remove charger plug, will not boot. She has always looked after it properly and I taught her to switch off the power socket, wait for the charger light to go out before unplugging. I taught her to do that with anything similar, from a very young age. She is quite mature for her age and looks after all her possessions.

    I tried plugging in the charger again, left it for about 10 min's. the area around the charger input became very warm, then cooled. It would still not bootup. This makes me think that battery (which cannot be replaced) and/or motherboard, is/are kaput.

    Does anyone here have this or similar tablet? I am looking at the price, which seems a bit too good to be true.
    I think this job really needs
    a much bigger hammer.

    What about a kindle from Currys for 40 ?

    Amazon have a used 1 for less than 40, be better of buying the 1 from Currys.

    What price were you looking at paying ?

    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    Thanks, DCFC79, but a Kindle is exactly what she does NOT want!
    No 'proper' Android - it's limited to Amazon's own version. That means no Google Playstore and none of the Apps & games that gd likes.

    (If I had a similar Avatar to yours, btw, it would read "NFFC52".)

    Thanks also Spud17, but I have been researching Hudl's and discovered several intetesting facts about weaknesses in the systems. Information I received is that the charging regulators are a big weakness, followed by the charging input socket and the connection from the regulator to the motherboard. Usual story for some devices: software and screen fine, crippled by cheap & nasty hardware.

    It occurs to me that Hudl users who have had no problems with their tab's, will probably flame me now. All I can say, is that my family has now had 3 and all have showed exactly the same symptoms, followed by failure to boot.

    I bought this:

    - which is about a decade better.
    I think this job really needs
    a much bigger hammer.
