I got a used LG l34c with an unknown password, it is locked. The phone powers up and turns on normally. I have a computer which I downloaded the LG driver not for the Android (there aren't any) but LG universal and My computer recognizes the device in full description. The hard reset instructions from LG US doesn't work. They advised me, the phone was made in China and has a different security standards.

First, try every method to put it into recovery. Possibly a Chinese menu will appear and if that happens then select the MME option to factory reset your phone. You may still be able to use Google Account Recovery though. There is also this Youtube Tutorial on bypassing Google on an LG device.

You will have to first try Google Accounts Recovery. If they give you a pin and it does not work right away then that means that you are in a 72 hour penalty period. Here is a Youtube Tutorial which shows you the proper way to unlock your LG phone. You may have to install firmware if the LG has 5.1 Lollipop or higher.

Tried to do the hard reset on my daughter's tab 3, but it didn't work, and now it won't turn on or show signs of life?

I am worried its broken, it won't even make a sound when plugged in.

This Youtube Tutorial shows you how to remove the SD card and solve a Tab 3 not turning on. It is a common problem with a Tab 3. Disconnecting the battery may trick the tablet into booting up. If this does not work you should try a different charger. These chargers are not lifetime and do need to be replaced from time to time.

My oukitel has got a Privacy lock keyword?

I never set up something like this and now I couldn't use my phone. How do I handle this?

If the phone does not give you the option for accessing in Google then you will have to install new ROM firmware. [www.needrom.com/category/others/m-n-o-p/oukitel/ Oukitel Rom] from needroms.com has a list of all the oukitel devices and the ROM that you will need.
