I have an Xgody and I forgot my privacy protection password, what do I do?

No SIM card, forgot password, don't know what to do, help

On the Xgody A33 tablet, there is a notation on the back cover that says Reset. It is by your Host connections. Push something small like a pin or needle into the hole to hard reset. You may have to do this a few times before the tablet recognizes that you are trying to hard reset. If the reset will not work then use the Volume Up and Power buttons by pressing them and holding until the screen turns on with the Android man. It may boot itself or you might have to use the Volume and Power buttons to get it to hard reset manually.

Xgody instructions are posted above. They should work for your tablet although since you have already hard reset instead of wiping the data again. this time, you want to select Wipe Cache Partition and then go back and Wipe Dalvik Cache. Set up your WiFi settings again and attempt to download from Google Play. Also in Settings make sure that your date and time are correct including the year. Wipe the cache from Google Play by going into your Applications Manager are in the main Settings. These are solutions that correct the error that you are experiencing with Google Play.

Reset Samsung Galaxy S2, S3, S4, Note2, Note3 Without Losing Data is a VisiHow article that walks you through a hard reset on a Samsung Galaxy device. With Samsung though a hard reset is not your only alternative to get past the lock screen. You can make a password attempt 5 times then click OK when you see the prompt for a 30 second time out. Another screen will appear giving you the option to use your Google Account. If you have forgotten it, then go to Google Accounts Recovery on the PC to retrieve it. You can also use Samsung's Find My Mobile to unlock a Samsung device remotely if you have registered the device with Samsung. You can also change the password to the lock in that interface.

How do I enter the recovery mode menu?

Basically, when I hold the power and the volume up button, the tablet starts to reboot and starts "optimizing apps". I am assuming that I might have to have the tablet turned off, but the center of the screen is unresponsive to touch due to previous damage. If I hold the power button, it doesn't vibrate, and just restarts the tablet. The worst part is, the unresponsive part of the screen is also where the pin to access the tablet is. (I am using a pattern code). This is why I'm doing a factory reset, I wouldn't mind not being to touch the center, but I can't log into the tablet to use it.. . The tablet won't turn off, no matter what I do. I've tried everything I found online, from holding the power and volume down, to hard resets. Everything I do reboots the tablet, and I can't access it to change a setting if for whatever reason, I need to check a box or something along those lines to let me access recovery mode. . . The "optimizing apps" thing, takes roughly 15 minutes. It says "Android is starting... Optimizing app x of y". It's tedious to wait until it finishes, just so it will turn on the tablet to learn I've made no progress.. . If you could help me out, I would deeply appreciate it. Thank you.. I have tried: Hard resets, I used a paperclip to press a button embedded in the back of the tablet, all it does it reboot it.

Many things online, such as button combinations etc.. I think it was caused by: The center of the screen being unresponsive, and the screen doesn't flip when I rotate the tablet. I can't access the settings because of it.
