Questions and Answers

I am trying to factory-reset a Prestigio Pro 7D?

I've tried resetting the password and all other steps associated with that. I can log into Google fine on other devices (the same account). I suspect that since this doesn't have WiFi or any kind of Internet access, then Google can't reach the device. Therefore, I'm trying the factory reset.

As a first step, dial the SIM-card number that is inserted into your Prestigio Pro and see if you can pull down the notification bar as a call goes through to enable the Internet ("mobile data") or WiFi. If that worked for you, then you can enter the password several times until you are asked about forgetting your password or asked to enter your Google credentials.

If that did not work for you, then power down your device. Press and hold volume-up and power buttons until you see a logotype. After you see the logotype, release only the power button. When you see a broken robot, release the buttons and press and hold the power button and press and release the volume-up button once. Now, you can select "wipe data/factory reset", "Yes -- erase all user data" with the volume buttons for moving and the power button for selection. Then, select "reboot system now" to reboot your reset device.

Factory reset of Sony Smartwatch 3?

I have a Sony Smartwatch 3. I can get to the screen where you choose to delete all data, but it only gives me "No" as an option and not "Yes" anywhere. I can see six "No"'s, then I'm at the bottom of the screen and it doesn't seem to want to let me scroll down any further. My phone is stuck on PIN lock after Android Wear upgrade and now I can't access anything on my phone at all.
