How do you reset a Tablet using the right combinations?

I have followed all the instructions on Hard Reset, using the right combination, volume up and power button. It goes into another screen with the Android robot with a red exclamation mark. That is as far as it goes. Will not reset.

There are more than one combinations that you can use in order to Hard Reset your Tablet but without having the model of your device I will only be able to give you another generic way of hard resetting your device. For more specific options you are going to need to give me the model of your device:

-Power off your device

-Hold the power + volume up + volume down key (also menu if you have a menu button on your device)

-After the device boots up on the menu

-Use the volume keys to highlight the Factory Reset option/data wipe

-Press the power button to make the selection

-After making your selection use the volume keys to highlight the option reboot device

-With this option highlighted press the power button to make the selection

After this is finished you will in fact have your device turn back on with its Factory Reset settings and no password lock required to get into your device.

In order to unlock a Tablet using a PC, you will need to be rooted and have enabled USB debugging. You could, however, do a Hard Reset. However, this will delete all apps and data on your phone.

Do the following:

  • turn off Tablet
  • press and hold the following:

power button

volume up/down or both

home button (if any)

(try different volume button combinations)

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

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

If all else fails, send your phone to the nearest service center.

I have Samsung Tab 2 lite, which combo will bring it to factory setting
