Polaroid 7" Tablet won't power up?

It won't come on and it is not holding a charge.

Your battery is 100% drained. When you connect a Polaroid tablet to the charger, you have to really push in the cable to get it to charge. If the battery is 100% drained then you will need to charge it for several hours before attempting to turn it on. If you still can't charge it then the is a problem with your charging port or the charger itself. You may also need to replace the battery. If your tablet was getting super hot before this happened then you may have bloated your battery which will make it unusable.

I'm trying to Factory Reset my Polaroid tablet and can't figure out how?

Cause my Google play store won't connect to the internet

Login to your Google Account on the tablet. Attempt to connect with Google Play again. If you are not connecting and can't connect to anything else then you have a router issue and should restart it. If the problem is still happening then clear the cache in the Google Play app. Make sure you Sync all Google related apps once you sign into your Google Account. Otherwise to hard reset you probably have to do this through the Southern Telecom website and installing an update to the tablet.

The password to connect to the net is in voice and not keyboard?

Changing of password from voice to keyboard. I have tried: Tried to reset but it still requests for a password. I think it was caused by: Mistakenly entered voice password instead of keyboard

This is an issue in your security/settings on the tablet. Turn off any speech to text capabilities that are usually located in Language and Output. Then make sure that your keyboard is working properly in other apps. Disable any lock screens after you have turned off the speech to text. In most tablets and phones if you two finger press or tap on the screen you can use the keyboard.

How can I figure out my password?

I forgot my password, I need to figure it out. I have tried: Putting in random passwords. I think it was caused by: I forgot my password

Click Forgot Password and use your Google Account. If you are not connected to WiFi this may not work and then you would have to install new firmware if it is a Polaroid or hard reset it. When you set up a passcode it should be one that is familiar to you such as your ATM/debit/credit card pin number, birthday, address to your house or one you remember like your childhood house number. Try some of these to see if it is the password.
