How to reset tablet if you can't see the screen?

    I've installed an app which has killed my screen :(

    basically, as soon as the app kicks in after booting the tablet up, it makes the scren go black. It still works, but I can't see anything. If I unlock it I can hear the click so I know it's still on.

    Can anyone tell me how I can reset this thing without needing to see what's on the screen?

    Look for the "factory reset".

    What on earth did you install?

    Try holding the power button down for a bit over ten seconds, as that can remedy some black screen issues.

    cheers guys. managed to sort it out.

    In the end, none of the factory reset options worked. But while it was on (with the screen off) I inserted my sd card with the firmware I was gonna reflash with, and that somehow prompted the screen to turn on long enough to remove the offending app.
