I have an android 8.1 head unit

leTV LE1 (supposedly the make and model but that relates to a mobile phone)

MT 6580

It's been working great but this week when it boots up, it cant find a home screen or launcher so it just sits there saying "Android Starting Up" Therefore I cannot access any android settings pages.

Ive tried accessing recovery options on boot but nothing seems to work.

Just for information, my unit has no physical on/off button or volume buttons, just a reset button which I held for 10 seconds but no recovery mode came up.

I'd like to reinstall a fresh copy of android on it but I've been told that USB Debugging needs to be selected but I cannot access this because I cant access any android menus on it.

Any solutions please?
