    I have a friends tablet that won't power up. I cant find this android tablet ANYWHERE! I tried googling the ONLY name on the box 6 different ways and I get no hits whatsoever!! It says "Q1 (or I) intelligent computing" on the box.

    GOOGLE SEARCH TERMS
    Q1 tablet won't power up
    QI tablet won't power up
    QI intelligent computing tablet won't power up
    Q1 intelligent computing tablet won't power up
    intelligent computing tablet won't power up
    unknown tablet won't power up


    How is that possible? Is this the only one? At this point in time I don't know where it was bought, Best Buy, Walmart, K-mart, Sears the trunk of some guys car! I'll find out and get back.

    I'll try to attach some pics maybe you can help, including the manual which has no MFR or FCC ID or Web site or Support/Help/Contact info, NOTHING to identify who made it! The pic of the manual 3x5 page is taken from 3 inches away. I can't even read what those idioms printed there are for. I going to get a microscope tomorrow

    I tested the power supply which is supposed to 5vdc out and there's nothing! The manual says a RED LED should light up! Nope, nada!

    If you can figure out what it is, does this unit need a full charge BEFORE it will power up? I now have it connected to the USB port out to my laptop USB port in. Maybe it will charge that way until i can get a replacement pwr supply.

    any help would be appreciated,
    thanks eto

    OK, got a working power supply and i now have a green light in the lower left hand corner, (lower right hand corner if you hold it sideways)

    From what I read in general about these tablets, after a COMPLETE discharge, they need to be charged for at least 8 hours1 (true or false?)

    I still cant read what buttons are what. I'm assuming that the button on the front in the middle at the bottom is the on~off button?

    thanks again

    mikedt 你好

    You're getting warmer..it probably came from Ebay, directly from China. It's not the only one, there's millions of them around.

    Yup...usually because the culprits don't want to be found....but it has "Made in China" on it though.

    Suggest you try charging it from a USB power brick rather than the USB port on your laptop.

    Eto...for your information, see our forum sticky about these things.....

    If it was completely discharged, give it a full charge, 8 hours. That way you'll know it should be fully charged.

    The button on the front is usually the home button, which should bring you back to the Android home screen. On-off is usually on the side, sometimes the top.

    OK a few more things

    no "Made in China" sticker anywhere! I guess they don't want any credit at all for this tablet.

    Found a suitable power supply dont think a usb brick would work.

    the HOME button on this tablet is on the side ! (see pic)

    seems as though there is an on-off switch on the side (see pic)

    I saw a shipping slip from someplace in Chicago called "Awards", seems as though this was some kind of premium prize awarded for an accumulated amount, kinda like the premiums you use to get when smoking Marlboro cigarettes and sent in the UPC!

    I'm going back to my friends today to see what a full charge has accomplished!

    thanks again for input
