If you are trying to reset the phone back to factory settings. this is because you are need to enter the button combination while the device is turned off in order to reach the reboot menu on your device successfully.Did you know that not all Android devices have the same way to reset? Some requires you to use a PC companion nor a reset button that you need to poke using a needle.

How can I Factory Reset a GT-T9500?

If you can still turn the device on and reach your settings, do the following:

  • Open your Settings app.
  • Navigate to and tap Backup and reset.
  • Tap Factory data reset.

If you can boot it up, but it keeps restarting or doesn't make it past the manufacturer's logo, you will need to get it repaired. Boot loops occur when your software won't allow the hardware to complete the boot up process.

If you can't turn the device on at all, you'll need to get your phone repaired; broken hardware will not be fixed by a Factory Reset.
