Tips and Suggestions for Factory Resetting Digital2 Tablets

The following tips will help reset your D2 Android Tab to it's factory default state.

  • Make sure your device is fully charged. Losing power part way through resetting an Android device to a factory default state can leave your device in an unrecoverable state.
  • Back up your data. Any information on your D2 Tablet will be deleted when you perform a Factory Reset.
  • Do not plug in or unplug your device to any power or USB ports while you are performing a factory restore, unless you have been specifically instructed to do so by alternate instructions from Digital2.

YouTube video stuck issues on D2-741G?

I have 3 new tablets, all the same model, only one plays videos through YouTube flawlessly, while the other 2 get video stuck, with sound playing. How do I resolve this?

Since you are experiencing this problem on two of the same Digital2 D2-741G tablets, I'd lean towards it being a memory allocation problem. Most likely there is another application taking the relatively limited device memory of the D2-741-G, and as a result, causing the stuttering and stopping video playback you are experiencing.

To correct this, you can do one of the following three things:

  1. 1
    Disable or uninstall apps.
    Go to 'Settings' -> 'Application Manager' -> 'Apps', -> 'All' -> tap the app, and select 'Disable' or 'Turn Off' (it varies by device).
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    Soft reset of the two malfunctioning tablets.
    Press and hold the power button for 20 seconds, until the device restarts, or remove the battery, and reinsert it after 10 seconds, and then restart. This will turn off all applications that are running, and should close the application that is using your memory.
