How can I reset my Android Tablet?

My Tablet was locked by the pass-code and I can't reset it and forgot the Google username and pass-code. What should I do to unlock it?

As per you mentioned that you do not know what was the Google account or email and password on your Tablet, there is only one way for you to unlock the Tablet. Unfortunately, it would be a reset.

I am not sure which Tablet that you owned but you can try the generic method to reset the Tablet. Please see the steps below:

1. Turn off the Tablet first.

Try any of the following:

Press and hold Volume Up then power button Press and hold Volume Down then power button Press and hold Volume Up plus home button, then power button Press and hold Volume down plus home button, then power button

After 20 seconds of so, let go of those buttons or wait for an Android Man with an ! (Exclamation point) for warning sign to show up and let go.

Use the volume keys to navigate and power or home button to select. Select the wipe data or restore to factory, then yes to start the process. This will delete your internal storage data, but not the data in the external storage.

2. After the reset process, simply select: reboot or restart and wait for the Tablet to boot up. You will be asked to configure the Tablet same as before and do so.

This time, if you are going to register and email address for recovery make sure that you know what it is and make a copy to a piece of paper for a hard copy. For pattern, simply draw the pattern and write the numbers if for password.

I can't hard reset my phone because my power button broke?

So, several months ago, my power button broke. After I repaired it, I can't use this button for hard reset anymore, so I use the factory reset on settings. The first time was successful. But today, I want to hard reset my phone again but instead of resetting, it entered recovery mode with the red triangle with exclamation mark. I should press power button to enter the menu but my power button cannot be used. What should I do to reset my phone?. I have tried: I tried to reset my phone using factory reset on settings but no use.. I think it was caused by: I don't know.

If this is the case, then you will need to power down the smartphone and follow the "Factory Reset Android Devices Not Booting Normally" section of the tutorial. If you know the device name and model, then we might find out how to reset it exactly in the powered-down state. The way to reset the smartphone is a button combination, a computer device-specific program, or a flashing program with a ROM (firmware) file.
