  1. Graphics glitch followed by death of Hudl 2 - outside Tesco's one-year warranty

    They called today and agreed to collect it on Tuesday for repair :-D
  2. This is the end :(

    Perhaps they have to hold back a certain number of units just for that. If replacement is not possible though, they're allowed to make partial or full refunds. 
  3. Graphics glitch followed by death of Hudl 2 - outside Tesco's one-year warranty

    Hi Hudluser, thanks. They said they'd let me know their decision by calling me within 24 hours. I wonder who decides and how. 
  4. This is the end :(

    I don't think they have any surplus stock to get rid of? My understand is they're sold out.
  5. This is the end :(

    Do you think they were losing money on them due to the cost of repairing faults/replacing?
  6. The display on my phone suddenly had black rectangles distributed randomly around and was unresponsive. I pressed and held volume up and the power switch which took me to the recovery menu with the same graphical glitch present. I pressed the power switch to reboot and the tablet screen turned off and never came back on. The tablet is now totally unresponsive. The red light does not illuminate when plugged in but it does appear to draw current (I have a charger with its own light which illuminates). The tablet is now 13 days out of Tesco's stated one-year warranty but I believe that the EU affords consumer rights for repair/replacement/partial refund up to at least two years. I think however, that I would have to somehow prove that this problem was inherent to the tablet and not something I introduced by abusing it. I've no idea how I would go about doing that other than pointing out the rubber bumper case and screen protectors that I bought at the same time and photographing it's near pristine condition from the outside. I think it would need to be taken apart to prove that there is no water ingress or physical internal damage.
  7. Chip fallen off, help needed!

    Some people reflow circuit boards in a domestic oven. There's a lot of information returned for Google search string "motherboard oven". Example:
  8. Rooted... and I've lost my navbar!!

    Did this happen simply after rooting or did you do some other stuff after rooting?
  9. Any experiences of using external expansion batteries with the Hudl2?

    They aren't device-specific so they will all work.
  10. hudl2 does not charge

      Perhaps one of the wires inside your cable has broken and so it only connects when held in the appropriate positions. I don't see how a long connector plug could impede the connection. I thought they were just to enable use by people with cases on their phones/tablets that prevent a shorter plug from making a good connection.
  11. Android Lollipop Update

    Based on the posts I've read on this forum, Tesco staff tend not to have any idea what they're talking about.
  12. Random resets/reboots

    I guess it's in sleep mode. I rarely ever switch it off. Sometimes there is a delay before it starts charging after being plugged in but it doesn't seem to be more than 30 minutes.
  13. Entering 'Safe Mode' - inbuilt software only?

    For some reason I can't access safe mode from a cold boot. I get as far as the Hudl logo with the pulsating star and then seem to stay there indefinitely. When I try using the first method, when the screen goes blank it stays blank and the Hudl is now powered off. Perhaps there is an ADB command or a command I can enter into the terminal?
  14. Random resets/reboots

    I haven't but I did notice this mentioned recently in another thread so I intend to try it. Annoyingly, I'm going to have to observe the reset manually because the uptime counter doesn't reset unless the reboot is normal.
  15. Random resets/reboots

    My tablet recently started randomly resetting, sometimes during use and sometimes whilst just sitting there. Anyone else experiencing this? It happens even with my Xposed modules disabled.
