Iheld the 2 swicthes as you suggested and words flashed across the top of the screen but stopped before I had chance to do the twice volume press. For a time the little green machine that appears on the screen when doing something or other appeared. It has now vanished and the tablet is absolutely dead - will not even switch on.
Holding the power switch did enable me to turn on the usual way. GHowever after I had switched off and then hel doen the powe and volume switches the word google appeared and nothing more
I think the youtube thing will work but I have to go out now. Can I get the video up again later
Thankyou so much ashik. using the youtube thing worked woderfully.
