    My Insignia Flex won't power on. I've only had it for 4 days and I'm already experiencing this issue. Does anyone have a solution?

    Welcome Kate!
    Although I am not familiar with that device, I can offer some opinions:)
    Have you tried to reset it using a paper clip or something small to push the reset button on the back of the tablet?

    In case you haven't all ready chunked your tablet, I have this issue too sometimes. I think it must be some kind of hardware bug but anyway, make sure your Flex is completely charged. Sometimes if the battery gets down to 20% or so, it will refuse to power on. Hope this helps.

    I know with my Flex 7" and sometimes with the 10.1" you have to push and hold the power button down until you see the tablet come to life. Not sure why that is or if it's "normal" since I've had both my tablets for less then a week but once it's up and running there's no other issues that I've ran into.

    my insignia 11.6" tablet did not have a reset button or pin hole, but what worked for me is holding down the power button for 30 sec. then releasing it and wait 2 min. then repeat the process over again. I was told to do this 3 times but it actually restarted on the second time. I was really worried as well cause it was fine last night the nothing I did would work. the person who told me to try the trick above. said that if the tablet gets hot it will shut down to protect its self. and not power back on till cooled. however my tablet was 2 days old and I'm sure it was not hot. but it still fixed it so who knows...hope this helps!
