    If the LED stops to work - please validate settings using these steps:
    * Open settings in Kiosk Browser (click in lower right corner of screen) - input password (default 1234)
    * Click "Make LED Green" / "Make LED RED" - this should make the LED react
    * Check that the tablet is correct mounted in the mount - cables etc.
