It is probably because you have no internet connection. The only way to get it to work is by performing a Hard Reset. You will lose all your data and apps.

Do the following:

  • make sure to charge the Tablet full
  • turn off the Tablet
  • press the following:

power button

volume up/down or both (try different combinations)

home button (if any)

or look for a reset button/hole (http://screencast.com/t/eRfxnjsl)

  • release the buttons when you see a logo
  • choose wipe data/Factory Reset
  • choose yes--delete all user data
  • choose reboot now

If all else fails, send your Tablet to the nearest service center to get it fixed.

I don't remember my password which I put on my device but on my laptop I can access my Google account. I think I have changed my password?

I think I have changed my Google account password but don't remember which I put on my Android phone.

If you can remember your previous passwords, enter them until your phone unlocks. You can also try your current password, since your Android phone should have updated itself when it was last unlocked. You can also check this site to make sure you're entering the correct password. If none of these options work, however, you will need to perform a Factory Reset to get back into your phone. Note: this procedure wipes all of your phone's data. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset on your Android device, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. Once the reset is complete, be sure to log your phone into a Google account to which you know the password so you don't have to perform a Factory Reset in the future.

I forgot my pattern and now Google account won't work?

I have just found my phone again after a long time, but I have forgotten my pattern password. Then it says to enter my Google account email and password. I entered the email and password but it says invalid. I went to my computer and I logged in with the same email and password and it worked on the computer but won't work on my phone. What do I do?

Unless your phone has a Valid WiFi or data connection turned ON, even if you enter the correct email address and password, it will not recognize it and it will not work. The last resort is to Hard Reset your phone.

My ASUS tablet won't recognize my password?

I recently changed the password on my tablet. I just tried to unlock the screen, and it wouldn't recognize the password. After many attempts and turning the tablet on and off, I seem to be completely locked out. I'm not sure how my Google account will help, but I think I remember my original username and password.

How can I recover Samsung tablet password for the device?

My son's tablet would not charge for like 3 months and then tonight he plugged it in and it actually charged. It has the wrong date and time on it now. He tried his password and it wouldn't work. The Google ID option does not pop up. What can I do to recover the tablet without a factory reset. I don't want to do a factory reset due to having paid for apps on there. If I were to do a factory reset would I be able to log in on his Google account afterwards and recover the apps?. I have tried: I have tried calling Samsung and they were of no help and kept telling me to do a factory reset.. I think it was caused by: I am thinking we are using the correct password but it has been dead for so long that it's not updated and the time and date are wrong on the tablet now.

When you allow a website or an app access to one or more of your Google products, we'll list it here. You can disable the access you've granted at any time?

Hope this is free? Good heavens. My question is TOO SHORT. Does this make it longer?

A friend who is computer challenged (device challenged) purchased a Visual Land Prestige 8qs and asked me to "make it work". She bought it on one of those bidding sites, so no telling what shape it's in. I've already discovered that the battery life is practically non-existent, like 30 minutes before it has to be recharged. This device shares the same port for the keyboard and the charger so she can't use it for any length of time. ANYWAY, when I powered it up, and answered questions beyond connecting to the network, I didn't provide a Gmail account because she doesn't have one. Didn't know this would prohibit me from accessing the device once it is powered off. The power/volume + key are not doing a reset. I've got it plugged in again and HOPE that with a "full" charge there is some way to reset it? Thanks.
