In order for me to provide you with an accurate reset method, I will need to know the exact model of your Tablet. Now you can check the device's user manual or setup instructions. Often times they provide reset options there. It is possible that if you have a Tablet brand that is not very high-end, you may need to hook it up to a computer and perform the reset with a program provided by the manufacturer.

In this case, you really have to do a Factory Reset. You have to turn off your device first, then you would press and then hold the corresponding keys so that it will go into recovery mode. There are different key combinations to follow and you can refer to the ones listed in this article. Once you see that your device has turned on, you can release the buttons. Use the volume keys to select among the choices on the screen and then the power button to enter your choice. You have to select Factory Reset. Keep in mind, however, that this command will wipe all information on your device, so you would need to reset all later on.

Another option is just to press the power button for a long time. Then you have to let your device off for a few minutes before you turn it on again.

Another option is to press the power and volume buttons simultaneously. You can test whether it is the volume up or volume down button.

Did you also install a custom recovery, like clockworkmod or teamwin recovery when you rooted your phone? If you did, you can easily boot into it and do a Factory Reset. If not, you can boot into the phone's default recovery and perform a Factory Reset. With the phone powered off, hold and press the power and volume up buttons together. The screen will turn green and then red and then it will take you to the recovery mode menu. Select wipe data/Factory Reset and reboot when done. This will hopefully fix whatever it was that chainfire 3d did to your phone.

I try to press power button and volume but does not work with my Tablet?

My Tablet loading screen problem

This is happening because these are not the correct instructions for your device. In order to be able to help you properly, you are going to need to give me the name of your device in order for me to give you the correct button combinations to reach the boot menu on your device.

Was this helpful? Yes | No


Also, try these combinations

-Volume up + Volume down + power

-Volume + home key + power

If the above combinations do not take you to the boot menu then reply with your model for more specific information.

Excelvan tablet is stuck in a bootloop?

Hi, my son's week old Excelvan M1009B 10.1 tablet is stuck in a bootloop and when I get it to the Android screen with all the options to reboot, factory reset, etc. I can't move the highlighted item away from reboot because this tablet doesn't have any volume buttons. Is there an easy solution to fix this or will I need to send it back?. I have tried: I have tried all button combo's and the reset pin hole but nothing works. I think it was caused by: From new there was a part of the screen that wouldn't respond. You couldn't type in some letters or tick on choices. This seemed to be a 1cm vertical strip just left of the center in landscape view. My son said the machine totally re-booted when he was playing a game and he lost all data. The machine came back on OK but later on, it went into the bootloop.

How do I reset an Android tablet hanging screen and get my Digiland DL701Q to work?

Hi, I recently bought ( In January 2015 ) a Digiland DL701Q 7 inch tablet from Best Buy , which worked great until 5th February, so that's almost 4 weeks I've had it. I traveled on that day and when I arrived I noticed that the tablet isn't turning ON. I charged it now when I turn ON the power button, I see a screen that says Digiland powered by Android with a circle symbol which turns. It stayed like that until the battery drained and no matter what I do, it still loads that same screen, I've tried to reset it using the reset port and a paperclip and it turns OFF and goes back to the same screen.I even tried to reset it using the volume up button and power button and a Chinese menu came up. I am not sure what to do now. Can you help?

What should I do so that I can pass the test?

My phone got wet and I rescued it fast. I directly removed the battery and placed it in a bowl of rice. After an hour or so, I turned it ON. It turned ON, but it has the factory phone test. I go on with the test but when it comes to the keypad test, I cannot pass because my volume up does not work.
