My M8 tablet suddenly went blank and says something about fast boot mode

2021-02-15, 2:27 AM

Hi, I put my tablet into a holder and suddenly the screen went blank and then I noticed a text at the bottom left of the screen that says fast boot mode. What is it, how do I exit it, where is the reset switch. Help?

Hi Smash591,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


If the android device is unable to power on, try the following to boot into the recovery menu.


  1. Ensure the device is turned off and not connected to any charger.
  2. Press and hold the correct keys to boot the device into recovery mode. This will vary from device to device. Normally there are three key combinations to enter recovery mode for Lenovo android tablets:
    • Volume Up + Power
    • Volume Down + Power
    • Volume Up + Volume Down + Power


Try exiting the recovery menu and boot as normal after, if not, then perform the key combination again and perform a reset of the device.
