I am trying to do a hard restart on my Polaroid tablet M#PMID10c?

It is telling me to hold in my home key before I plug my USB port in, but the home key is only available when the device is powered. Is there another key I am unaware of?

There is no hard reset method for this model. You will have to reflash the device. The home button works with the USB cable plugged in even on powered down Polaroid tablets, but you have to follow the exact procedures in steps 10-12 to make it work.

Real issue is every time I restart it, it goes back to default?

Polaroid P 10 tablet, every time it is restarted it goes back to factory default, trying to resolve this so my son can start with ABC Mouse. I do not have volume buttons , cannot access recovery mode

Your tablet is manufactured by Southern Telecom. They have provided a Hard Reset Support PDF for your Polaroid P 10. If you wish to launch ABC Mouse upon when the tablet boots up, you can install AutoStart from Google Play. This app allows you to customize an app to launch right away.

How can I reset a Polaroid S7 Android tablets?

Have tried resetting Polaroid S7 tablet with every combination I've been able to find so far and nothing seems to work. I have tried: Power+up volume

power+down volume

power+home

power+up then down

power+down then up

power+up+home

power+down+home. I think it was caused by: Someone put a lock code on the tablet. They said it was just a "Z", but I don't know how to make that work.

We're no longer able to gain access to the tablet?

When we power it on and swipe the screen, no keyboard appears so we can't enter the password, I've tried the reset button on the back, powering on and off, and the same while connected to a charger.

Keep pressing into the reset pinhole. I have had to attempt several times before a tablet will factory reset this way but usually, you have to press down until the tablet reboots. You did not list what tablet you have but if it is a Polaroid, Southern Telecom has hard reset instructional PDFs on all their tablets.

Hi, I made a few wrong patterns in my tab, now I can't login back with my pattern, my tab is disconnected from internet?

Hi, I made a few wrong patterns in my tab, now I can't login back with my pattern, my tab is disconnected from internet

If you can remove the back cover and then battery, this will soft reset the device allowing you to use your correct pattern again. Otherwise, let it go completely dead then charge it to 100% before turning it on again. You may still have to hard reset if your pattern is not being recognized because you do not have WiFi enabled. Clean the screen before you attempt the pattern. Oil residue from our fingertips can mess up how the screen detects when drawing a pattern for security.

My tablet got sat on while on a cushioned chair this morning. The screen comes up when the power button is pushed, gray/black lines. The time shows up occasionally but appears backward. any help for this tablet

Need help with Polaroid tablet that was sat on. The screen is now gray/black. Won't do anything. Time shows up backward.

Your display is damaged and will need to be repaired, however, you can try to hard reset the device and maybe it will reboot normally but that chance is very slim since the tablet was sat on.

Polaroid won't turn on. Your page is now saying my question is too short. What would you like me to add, why have a details section if you want it all up here?

My Polaroid 10" froze, I turned it off then it wouldn't turn back on. I recharged, just in case it was a flat battery, but now there is a faint glow of the screen, it is heating up as though working but the screen is blank. Pressing power and volume buttons simultaneously and holding them for over a minute has not worked. Any other suggestions?

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Remove the back cover and then the battery. While the back cover is off, run your fingers firmly over the back of the tablet. Then see if the battery is damaged or warped. Wait 5 minutes and then put the tablet back together. Now turn the tablet back on. If the screen still does not completely light up, you should hard reset the tablet. The instructions for the Polaroid 10 are posted in an above answer. If all of this does not work then your screen is damaged and would need to be repaired.

I can't get my Polaroid P900 to boot past the 1st "Polaroid Powered By Android" screen?

The tablet was locking up on this boot screen and I couldn't do anything with it other than turn it off and on. I managed to perform a hard reset and a factory restore but I can let it sit for hours with nobody touching it and it STILL freezes at this boot screen. I have tried: Hard reset, factory restore. I think it was caused by: My wife had been installing a number of game apps.I suspect some sort of software issue was caused in the process.

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Connect the tablet to the Southern Telecom portal. Install the OS of the device back on. This should resolve your boot loop. Ask her to be very careful when installing apps. Too much on the tablet with cause this to happen frequently.

Touchscreen is not working properly - I replaced it myself?

It turns on but bad or no navigation. Jumps back to Polaroid screen. I have tried: Holding down volume button and power button. Sometimes I can get to the settings tab. I think it was caused by: Replacing screen glass

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Did you replace the LCD at the same time? Because this will become damaged and need to be replaced when you replace the screen glass. You may have damaged something else during the glass repair or moved it so try the pressing trick where you remove the back cover and firmly run your fingers all over the back.

Loading the system recovery menu?

Every time I turn on my Polaroid, it keeps loading the recovery menu. What should I do? I don't want to wipe it, but when I load a recovery from the list and reboot it keeps taking me back to the same recovery system menu. I have tried: Reloading from the recovery list. I think it was caused by: I am not sure if all the files are there for the tablet to boot properly

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Are you sure you are not in safe mode? To turn safe mode off, you need to remove the battery for a soft reset. If this does not work then you can go to the Southern Telecom website and install your tablet's stock OS.

I did the power button/volume thing and then a picture of a dead robot with a red exclamation point coming out of his belly pops up. What do I do now?

When I press the power and volume buttons at the same time a picture of a dead robot with and exclamation point coming out of his belly door pops up...what do I do now. I have tried: I tried to press the reset button on the back of the tablet which did nothing, I have tried many attempts at remembering the passcode with no luck as well. I think it was caused by: I forgot the passcode after not using the tablet for some time

Was this helpful? Yes | No

You use the volume buttons to navigate the menu. Press Power to select Wipe Data/Factory Reset. If there is no menu then that usually means you have to hit Home, Power or one of the Volume to bring up the Recovery Menu screen.

Is there a system reboot file available for the A1000x?

My A1000x will not start up. I get the Polaroid screen, then it shuts down. I've done the built in factory reset already and it still does the same thing. Chromebooks have a file that will reinstall the software from a USB drive; is there anything similar for this tablet? The built in system recovery didn't solve the problem. I have tried: I've tried the Wipe Data/Factory Reset built into it. I think it was caused by: The storage was almost full. Other than that I had no issues with it.

Why does it say that nothing works and it doesn't let go on anything?

It says that "Unfortunately, system UI has stopped." And Unfortunately, launcher has stopped." And it doesn't let me go on anything. Because mine doesn't let me go anywhere on my tablet. I have tried: It has no volume keys only inside. So I tried poking a stick inside and I couldn't find the small button. I think it was caused by: I don't know. Because I put it to charge and went to get it and it kept saying that.

Hi Daniel, my mom has a Polaroid tablet, not sure of the model, that when you turn it on, it simply says "Polaroid" and loads and nothing happens. We have recently experienced a major hack of my computer, and cell phone and replaced several devices in the house, had the police and our internet provider step in. Not sure if this is related or simply a glitch, can you assist? Thanks?

That pretty much summed it up. Tried the volume up/down, power key. Didn't fix it
