For those experiencing the shutdown problem in this tablet, try holding the lock button for 15-20 seconds, release it and click it immediately. It works to my iconia tab 8 :)
One week after buying the device, he began to have trouble to power up and two months later stop working
I got the device on the night of my birthday a couple of days ago and it works. When its done fully charged or after turning on while locked, it appears as I press the power button at the right, a black screen shows with no screen view.
I have no issue with mine except there are bugs with the screen flickering every 10 mins but that's it really!
lifepo4, 11 Jan 2015Serious issue with the power button, randomly it will not power on even you try for 20-30 min,... moreSame here they made me wait a month for them to repair it and I have had it one day and it's already doing the same thing... It is faulty and we should get our money or a better tablet... I will take this to court if I have to... Its obvious there is a defect with this product and the customers should be taken care of.
OK so I see I am not alone with the issue of the Acer Iconia Tab 8. I had it for a couple of weeks and then it just shut off and never turned back on. I sent it for repair and I have had it one day and it did the same thing. I waited a month to get it back for this to happen again... Not happy with Acer company... We aren't here to test your "faulty products" and then be told that I can't get it replaced. I waited a long time to be able to afford a tablet and then this happened... Will never buy another Acer product again... Buyers beware
Try holding the power button for a few seconds and see if it turns on.
