Hello Forum,

 

My Arnova 10 G2 doesn't want to do anything apart from show a little green light when it's charging or a little red one if I'm poking a needle in its reset hole. Other than that, it's a brick.

 

It doesn't connect to my computer via the micro USB cable unless I'm awkwardly holding a pin in it's reset hole. Even when it does connect, Windows 8 doesn't recognise it as anything.

 

Any advise?

 

Regards.

You should look on the 10 G2 section on how to reflash your tablet, also this should help

bilnoyy hope you fixed it

 

Did you manage to get your tab in "bootloader" mode , plug it in via usb . use the usb drivers

in the latest RKAndroid / RockusbDriver tools .. works fine in 7x64 ..

ps there are win8 drivers in there

 Ive flashed my 10g2 many times, but some times it hard to get it into bootloader mode

best way ive found is unplug all cable form tablet

press and hold volume up

press reset for 10 seconds

release reset but keep volume up pressed

plug in usb keep volume up pressed ,tab wont show anything but device manager in windows

should detect it..

Thanks for the help,

I simply can't get Windows 8 to recognise the device no matter what I do.

I just says that the device has malfunctioned and it doesn't want to know.

It only triggers anything on my computer if the reset button is depressed so I guess it's showing 1 sign of life... which is a bonus.

Also, I've now noticed that the green/red light is no longer illuminating.

 

If you guys have any other tips, then please help, otherwise I'm chucking it out.

 

Regards.

 

EDIT: Actually, the green/red light still illuminates, but only when the tablet is plugged directly into the mains... yup, a lot of wires!
