Default stuck on boot logo screen and need help to identify tablet

I have two of these tablets (1 for each child) and 1 has completely locked up on the boot screen with the android guy that says Android 2.3. I have tried the reset button and all combinations with power/volume buttons to no avail. There is no access to a battery compartment and I've let the battery drain and still nothing. I've read that I can reflash the Rom but I do know exactly which tablet I have so hopefully someone can help me out as I have an identical tablet that is working.

It is an 8" capacitive touch tablet. Just tell me what to lookup and I'll post it.

Would greatly appreciate some help and direction on how to get this tablet working again.

Thanks in advance.

More than likely the software is corrupted.

Post all that you see in the about device option under settings, model number, kernel version, android version, build numbers, other information, etc. Occasionally that can help with identifying your tablet, although often it does not because it's generic.

Great news. I managed to get the firmware download from the company. What do I do now?

Did the firmware file come with any instructions or readme files? There might be an associated programme .EXE that runs on your PC, to do the flashing. Sometimes flashing involves copying the file to the tablet and then doing some kind of recovery mode.

Some info about using the FWDN_V7....EXE to do flashing on the android tablets.net forum. Can't post the URL directly, AF seems to be censoring it for some reason. PM me for URL.

Thanks but that didn't exactly work for me. However, I did manage to gather the two essential programs necessary to flash the tablet. VTC driver and FWDN.

I just needed to hold down the "volume down" button at boot up and it activated the FWDN mode. The company told me to hold "power" + "home" buttons at same time so this took hours of trial and error of just holding buttons...

Long story short, I managed to get it working, but the resolution and colors are all screwed up. Kinda like I'm using a rom that was designed for a 9" or 10" tablet because some of the apps run off the screen and the colors are blown out (as if I only have 8-bit color). Furthermore, the touch screen sensitivity is completely opposite/backwards.

So I'm halfway there... Need more help please! Isn't there a generic rom I can load that will automatically sense the screen size and hardware?

I was thinking, is there a way for me to copy the rom from my "working" tablet onto the "broken" tablet using FWDN?

Apparently they uploaded the wrong Rom. I got the correct one and everything is fine except for the camera. There is an error message about "SD card or memory not ready...???" Anybody know what this is referring to? I asked the manufacturer and they said it has to do with flashing the NAND. Here is what they replied with "... if you re-install the software but the Camera is not working ,that's because when you re-install the software,the OS will creat a file named "NAND data",you need to add it to FWDN. If you did this step,then the Camera is workable."

So i guess i need to flash the base Rom, then create NAND and then flash that on top the base rom I jay flashed? Does that sound right? I guess this prepares the internal memory somehow so some can be allotted for use by camera and other apps?
