Hello Everyone,

I just received this tablet from a friend and I'm having problems.

Its a Coby Kyros Android Model mid 7015............

When ever I try to go into FaceBook,  E-mail or the Web, I get this:

Security Warning, There are problems with the Security Certificate for this site.
The name of the site does not match the name on the certificate.

I did a restore back to factory settings, but didn't work.

I reset the time,day, date, month, year, etc. nothing.

Is there anyone that can help with this?

Thank-You,
johngod

Hello johngod

I doubt it has anything to do with spoofing. (EDIT; deleted banned members posts)

 

First go into the Advanced settings of the email account and make sure Accept All Certificates is checked.

 

 

It is also common when the website you are visiting (or when an app you are using tries to access a web server) discovers that your tablet's credentials and theirs do not match.

There's a good possibility your tablet’s time and date settings are wrong.

Go to Settings > Date & Time > and tap the option labeled Automatic to make sure the green check mark is removed. Then make sure the Date, Time, and Time Zone are all correct.

Should you see that error message again after these steps, just press the Continue option.

 

Or you may need to reset your Browser to defaults (within the Browser, select Menu > More > Settings > Reset to default).

I tried the above methods to no avail.

 

I still get the Security Warning.

 

It Says now:

The name of the site does not match the name on the certificate.

 

Issued to:

 

Common name:           *.g.doubleclick.net

 

 

Don't know who this is.......

The easy answer is to go into the Advanced settings of the email account and make sure Accept All Certificates is checked. If that isn't checked, check it and try again. If it is checked and it's still not working, try the following:

  • Make sure your Android platform is fully up to date. If it isn't, update and try again.
  • Once you get to the point where the setup has connected to the server (but giving you the warning), you should be able to uncheck the Verify Certificate section in your incoming and outgoing settings.

couple things to try. First, try clicking continue when the message pops up-if you know its something you can trust, just click continue all the way until you get to the page you want, and then reset the browser (NOT the device) to defaults. Another thing to try is to go into the browser menu and go to setings, and make sure cookies are enabled/accepted.

Hello again,

I went into settings, than a thing called more, than back into setting,

and finally at the end was a icon that said if I want to disable the security setting,  

click on it which i did and it worked.

 

New problem:

My tablet is a Coby Android Kyros,Model #MID7015  Ser.#052110070735...

 

I went into Coby for updates, but Coby went out of business.

All I get is a white screen that says Coby, and nothing else.

Also I heard the tablet needs to be rooted, what ever that is.

 

Is there any way I can update this tablet to get it to work,

or any programs or material I need to install?

 

Thank-You,

Johngod
