    Default Acer tablet splash screen of death

    HELLO all

    i was recently given an acer tablet iconia 500 from what research i've done
    my problem is turn it on by holding power button for 3 seconds get a white acer logo
    and nothing else.
    so i tried to hold the volume button toward the power button pressed the power button 3 sec exactly waited for the vibration then started switching the lock button

    happens fast so forgive any miss information
    i believe the first white line said ereasing user data,next line ereasing user cache, then something kernell then andriod icon with cog wheels spinning
    then andriod icon with the explamation point. after it sits for 5 mins or so maybe less it reboots on its own and goes to the acer splash screen and thats all

    tried to reset hardware

    no change

    reset hardware the volume power thing again same result

    looks brand new but was told it was only worth a hundred dollars and would cost more to fix this one rather buy a new one

    Really need more info on tablet...where did you get it, did the last owner root, etc.

    Sounds like its trying to do a factory reset and failing so your stuck without a actual OS on the tablet...I believe if you hold the other volume button and power you can get into the recovery.

    If its rooted it should have a custom recovery such as clockworkmod or twrp and flash ROM from there with any ROM of your choosing from anywhere on a SD card...if not I'm sure you could find the official firmware on the web, name the file update.zip, put it on the root of a SD card and flash it in stock recovery to get it working again.
