So, I have a nextbook. I've only had it for about 2 months. I was using it and it had 43% battery life. I had to put it down for a second so I could go do something. I was gone for about 45 seconds, I picked up the tablet, pushed the button to unlock it and it wouldn't unlock. I tried holding the button to turn it on (Maybe it turned itself off?) but it wouldn't come on. I tried charging it, and when it's charging there's usually a solid red light that comes on, and it turns orange when it's fully charged. Well, the red light came on, but it was flashing. It's not supposed to flash. So, I let it fully charge but it's still not turning on. What should I do?

Are you able to remove the battery? I'm seeing alot of search results online involving the blinking red light.

I would yank the battery and try and start it with just the power supply plugged in. Then replace the battery and see what that does for you. I would say if it starts without the battery, and won't start with the battery. Your battery is probably hosed. However, a lot of times with laptops and android phone just taking the battery out and putting back in can fix it.

You can't remove the battery! It's a solid back. No way to remove it. Ugh. This sucks.

gah that is a poor design. Let me look up hard reset. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TM-Ir-stVL8 here is a video on how to do that. I have to do this with an ipad like once a week here where I work. They just freak out. Sorry I don't have any personal experience with the nextbook specifically.

If it WONT turn on then check the plug in with out the plug and you will probably see that a part of the plug in side is actually bent over from people pluging in your phone,and tablets in wrong so if you want and your not a pro at this then I highly recommend to see pro at fixing it

Have had success pressing and holding the power button for 30 secs to a minute and letting go. The screen will flash and go off. Then press power like normal powering on. Should start like normal at that point.
