RCA Cambio stopped after Windows update
Stopped working after doing a windows update brings up icons on bottom of screen but none of them work I cant even turn it off.
Cambio is fragile in the face of Windows updates. Try the obvious first: reset it. Small round button on the back that you will probably need an object like a pen or pencil to push (it’s intended to be difficult). I’ve had to do that several times after Windows “feature” updates. Usually gets it working again, or at least allows the update to complete. Also, If you try to start several times and it doesn’t work (feature update), Windows will often fall back into the recovery environment, at which point you can roll back to the previous release that worked or do a reinstall. Make sure you have a Micro SD card installed with at least 10-15GB of space when doing a feature update; it’s very likely that there isn’t enough space in the main storage to do a Windows install if you have much other stuff in the computer.
That said, my Cambio has taken all of the feature updates to Windows 10 through 1809, though not without at least one “fresh start” after a few weeks.
As for turning it off, you can force it off by holding down the power button for about 10-15 sec.

If you can get your hands on a copy of Windows 10 LTSC 32 bit and the RCA cambio drivers (they can be hard to find, but I found the drivers on someone’s Google Drive), I’d strongly recommend replacing the pre-packed bug-filled Windows 10 Home with it. You won’t get Microsoft’s bloatware and you won’t have access to the Microsoft store immediately (this can be fixed after installing, just google “how to add Microsoft Store to LTSC”). The final install of LTSC is about 4GB smaller than Windows 10 Home (which is a pretty big deal when you only have 32 GB to play with) and the advantage to LTSC is that you NEVER have to suffer from broken Windows Updates again. You only get security updates and patches, and you’re supported for 10 years (for the current version 1809, support ends in 2029), so you can sit back comfortably while your news feed fills up with articles about frustrated Home/Pro users who got their devices effectively bricked by yet another failed feature update, since LTSC doesn’t get any new feature updates and new versions are released every 3 years and even then, it’s voluntary to upgrade. I tried to run Linux on this tablet, but unfortunately it wouldn’t work. LTSC is honestly your best option
