Step 1: The tool

First thing we need to do is to open the tablet. The tool that we will use to do this is a soft plastic guitar pick. This protects the edge of the case from scratches.

Step 3: Opening the case

Remove the screws from the mid frame to allow it to be removed from the device.  This will expose the PCB and the Batteries.  

Step 7: The Hard Boot

Disconnect the batteries by unplugging both cables from the device.  Leave the batteries disconnected for 10 - 15 min.  Reassemble the device by following this Instructable in reverse order.  After the device is reassembled if the screen does not work make sure that the cables are seated properly.   The cables not being seated properly is the second most common failure in tablets.
