    My daughter accidentally plugged the wrong car charger into her android tablet... the tablet needs a 5v charger and she plugged a 12v charger into it which resulted in system failure. Is there any way I can repair this?

    Hey buddy, sorry to hear about this. My daughter actually did the same thing and i ended up having to send it back to the manufacturer to get repaired.
    What happened was it fried parts of the motherboard and wouldnt even turn on.
    You are going to have to do the same, and if still under retailer or manufacture warranty, this may only take jst a few weeks to be repaired.
    I wouldnt recommend trying to repair this yourself. Not only will it void the warranty, but you will have to find out how much damage was done, and what parts you would have to order. After that, getting the new parts on is a whole new world of potential disasters lol.
