Then under the apps list find and remove all google services.

Calendar Not Showing
The Calendar has always been a challenge as Amazon does not install google software by default.
Theres 2 choice here.
Option A) Display your calendar as a webpage using the webpage display option.
Option B) Try and fix the google services
Option A) WEB DISPLAY
In the app goto the web Page Option.
Choose if you want this to be displayed Morning/Day/Evening
Click Enter URL
Enter the URL : https://calendar.google.com/calendar
When the display 1st shows the webpage calendar it will ask you to logon.
It needs this as obviously it has no clue who you are.
Once logged on it will remember.
You can the click around to make the display nice.
Option B) APP DISPLAY
If its not working it likely the google apps we pre-instal have failed.
For the calendar to work it needs 4 google services that should have been pre-installed on the tablet before we ship.
Google Account Manager (5.1)
Google Services Framework (5.1)
Google PlayServices (20.1.04)
Google PlayStore (18.5.69)
These 4 software components need to be installed in this order.
In the event of the calendar not working, un-install our smart mirror software, and then un-install these 4 components from the tablet.
Download the 4 bits of software from the links provided here below.
This is best done by viewing this webpage on the tablet and clicking the links. Then install the software. The packages are called 1,2,3,4 to make the order more simple.
Just Time being Displayed / Blank Screen Being displayed
There are 3 common reasons for this
A) The tablet brightness has gone crazy and is on low. (wait till nighttime or carry to a dark room)
b) Misaligned timers. If the timers have a time gap between them it can cause no info to show. This is a bug
that will be resolved in the next update. To workaround ensure the timers have no gaps.
eg. 07:00 - 10:00 10:00 - 17:00 17:00 - 23:00
c) This can occur if the app thinks its sleep mode time. This is be default after 11:00 PM.
Check if you changed the sleep timer.
Check its not after 11PM
Wait until the next rollover timer to see if the comes back to life.
Getting past the lock-screen
To unlock the tablet if its on the adverts screen, you need to swipe up , or say "Alexa show home page"
The UpSwipe requires a small move of the padlock up. Once you configured the mirror should not lock again, but if it does you will be able to use voice to say "Alexa show the Homescreen"
Once the Smart Mirror app / Mango Mirror or Dakboard App is running the screen should never lock and should always show your displayed information. It will show a blank screen during your chosen sleep period.
Remote Control Not Working
1st ensure the power slider is ON
2nd ensure it has battery power.
The remote should be paired on arrival. If its not working however, you may need to remove the tablet from the product. Unclip the back. Remove tablet. Power on the tablet. Click "Settings", Click "Connected Devices", Ensure Bluetooth is enabled. Then click Bluetooth. On the remote hold down the bluetooth icon symbol for a long press of about 2 seconds. The bluetooth light should flash on the remote. Now the keyboard should show on the tablet in the device list. click the keyboard on the tablet to pair the devices. you should then be able to wiggle on the trackpad and see the cursor moving.
