Can not install apps on tablet

Recommended Posts

+jnelsoninjax    11,848

I have an Acer tablet (wifi) and I have a few apps that I sideload on it, most of the time I store the apk  on Dropbox and install from there, but this evening I tried to install and I press the install button, but it refuses to be pressed,I can tap it all day long and it will not progress to the install point. I have tried with 2 other applications and have reset the tablet, but it is refusing to work, this is true of the play store as well, any download will not accept pressing the install button, but cancel works just fine. Any ideas as to what is going on?

OK, so I manged to solve the issue, it turned out to be the blue screen filter that comes on at night, I simply disabled it and it allowed me to press install.

Glad you sorted it out. That's a hella strange bug/defect.

It truly is, and the only reason I discovered it was searching in the XDA forums and found a similar issue.
