What do i do if my tablet is stuck in start up mode?


AC Question

My tablet has been in start up mode for an hour. The little color circles are moving, but I've never seen it go for this long to start up. I didn't know it had been turned off since I used it 30 minutes prior when I opened the case & saw it trying to start up. If I had gotten a notification or had seen the little Android bot I would have known it was an update. What do I do if it takes over an hour & it still hasn't booted up?

Welcome to Android Central! Which tablet? It sounds like it might be a problem with the hardware or firmware.
