I'm still trying to figure out why no signal goes through cable from tablet's headphone jack to the iSimple device that puts signal from a phone or tablet into car stereo.

Tried Lenovo Companion - test on headphone jack failed (both with cable unplugged, and with it plugged into car stereo device). Looking at Solutions in Companion - most appropriate seems to be "Unable to hear through receiver or speakers".

Click on that - and I get a page about using XFINITY WiFi. I'm already connected to my home wi-fi. Clicked on other issues and got "normal" pages. Restarted tablet. Made sure I was connected to home wi-fi. Same process - same dumb and useless XFINITY page.

How can I see the material I should see when I click on "Unable to hear through receiver or speakers"?

I have the Lenovo B6000-F tablet.  WLAN will NOT turn on. 


How do I down load it since it's only for Android?  I would download it on my Win 8 laptop, but Google Play Store will not let me.  Even if I could (download it), how could - would I open it?


If I was able to open it, how (without WiFi NOR Bluetooth would I run it on the tablet?


As far as I can tell, every other function on the tablet is working.


REMINDER, since I do not have WiFi, you would have to notify / contact me via e-mail on-on my laptop.  E-mail address is: dulca@duo-county.com
