Some people noticed that the LePan TC970 freezes if battery level is low, or if it goes to sleep automatically. Just press the power and reset buttons, AT THE SAME TIME, and you will wake up the tablet from sleep.

Other people had difficulties getting the LePan TC970 to work with Skype microphone or video chat screen, claiming the installed Android version 2.2 is not supported on Skype, but the microphone works, and so does the chat and screen share. There is a fix for it: download the latest Skype, with modified Skype for Android Froyo. Make sure you enable “Use preview surface” under the tweaks menu. Audio works better if you use headset/microphone instead of built in microphone, or get a Bluetooth headphone.
