Answer found on AskMeFast.com--- In order for you to reset the Tablet, you can follow the traditional reset of an Android device for this model.
1. Turn off the phone tablet
2. Press and hold power then the volume down.
3. Once you have an Android logo, release or let go of the buttons.
4. To select, use volume up and to navigate us volume down. Select Wipe Data/factory reset 5. Select reboot to restart the tablet. Once the tablet is up, all data are deleted and start downloading them manually and update. You can also perform reset on your tablet by Going to Settings then restore and reset then select reset and the device would automatically restart. If you mean by reset is to turn off and on the tablet, you just need to press and hold the power and select restart or turn off.

Hold the volume+ key then hold the power button for about 5 seconds. This will bring up a prompt to follow. You have to follow the factory reset. All saved items will be deleted. This is the only way.

Plug in to AC power.

Hard start it by holding the volume + key then press and hold the power key together and wait several moments. At this point you can choose reboot, using the volume up and down key and press the power key. That will restart the unit.

If it fails to resume operation go thru the hard start again and this time choose factory reset which will wipe the tablet and return to new. You will lose all data. Before you do this step remove your microsd card if you added one.

How do I connect to another device on my Network?

You can use a File Folder app (you will need to download from Google Play) to search for available media content on your network. You will have to allow sharing on the other devices you want to connect to, for example, if you want to connect to your desktop computer that is on your local network, then you must go into the settings on your computer to change the permission to allow for sharing (generally compatible with Windows Vista and above). Please contact your network administrator or a knowledgeable network technician to assist you in connecting to other devices.

When you turn on your tablet...you will notice that there are 6 little squares in the upper right corner, touch and it will take you to the next screen, touch the camera icon, my tablet only has the facing camera....so that leaves it difficult to turn the tablet to face your subject of choice and try to take a picture that way....by touching the blue circle, touch the picture in the upper right corner to preview pictures. I "fashioned" a wire hanger to hold the tablet so I could take pictures of my grands....

Check your Wi-Fi connection,make sure its good,if it is try a reset using a tip of a paper clip on the button in the small hole on the back of the tablet then power back on,all files and apps will not be erased but the running programs and such will be closed down,the reset usually works with these issues,if it doesn't,try rcatablets.com and they might be able to provide you other options,but the reset should do the trick if your Wi-Fi is all good.
