Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works great until the boot loops kick in I got this tablet from T-mobile. It worked for more than an year. However, within the last few months the boot loops made it unusable. It works fine until the battery comes down to 50% and then the boot loop problem kicks in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was a good tablet until after the warranty expired This was a solid tablet, doing most of the things I purchased it for, up until just after the warranty expired. After owning it for 1 year and 8 months, (warranty was 1 year & 6 months), it developed the infamous LG bootloop problems.

How do you unlock it when frozen

Asked by: Drainbusters
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this tablet. If the device appears frozen, then it would be recommended to hold down the POWER button for about 5-10 seconds, until the device deactivates. Once it is off, allow it to sit for about a minute before attempting reactivation. Once restarted, if the device continues to have difficulty, then it would be recommended to contact our Wireless Customer Interactive Center at 800-793-8896 for additional troubleshooting.

Can I use a usb to hdmi to stream from my tablet to my tv its the lg8x8.0

Asked by: Phillyb530
Hi Phillyb530. We are not familiar with your TV, however, HDMI and USB systems are not compatible so no simple cable with different plugs at the end can work. USB is a connection system designed for computer data flows. These are different from the video and device control signals carried by HDMI. If you want to connect a USB device to an HDMI device then you must use a converter box. This is a set of electronics that change the protocols and signals...^IFV
