Not being able to update any apps simply means either you don't have access to the internet or that your apps update is programmed to function ONLY when you are connected to/through WiFi.

second, you can download standalone 'raw' apk files online and install on your tab.

Remember to go into your Settings---Security (and under Device administration, check 'Unknown sources' and activate 'allow installation of apps from unknown sources'.

This is safe.

I have had the same issue with this tablet. After weeks of looking around on the net i have found a way to reset the tablet to factory settings when the power and vol down button will not work.

1. Download the firmware from the proscan website. http://www.proscanvideo.com/item.asp?itemnmbr=PLT8235G.

2. unzip the file and copy the files update.zip recovery.img and factory_update_param.aml to an external micro sd card.

3. Plug the tablet in and insert the sd card. Press the power button to see the battery icon then press the power button 5 times. Then let it run for 4 minutes and it should be set back to factory settings.

****NOTE***** If it fails to update then you still have the access to the recovery menu where you can do the factory wipe and still reset it.

Hope this helps.

Try holding the on/off buttom and the volume buttom down at the same time til you get a reading across the screen promote you what to do next. This should reset everything and let you back in. ( make sure you hold both the up and down at the same time on the volume) good luck and i hope this works just about all eletrice have a soft and a hard reset.

When you press and hold in the power button it should boot up. If it doesn't the battery might be dead so charge it up and try again. If it doesn't boot up after charging we need more information.

Are you getting any kind of a screen or just nothing?

Press power button + vol up + vol down and release power button in boot logo and hold volume buttons.

Sorry, I have no solution to offer. I am in the same situation and resets aren't working. Wondering if OS is deleted and if so, how to reinstall. So frustrating!
