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.

My daughter changed her password of her Polaroid S10 tablet to keep her brother out of her tablet, and now she has forgotten it. How can I fix it?

Unlocking a Polaroid S10 tablet

If you or she set up a Google Account to use Google Play or YouTube then you can use those credentials. Make several attempts at a password and then Forgot Password will appear allowing you to use the Google Account. If all else fails, connect the tablet to the PC and flash the firmware from Southern Telecom back onto it. You will want to choose the option specifically for your model of Polaroid.

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.
