Questions and Answers

I have attempted too many patterns in my Nikon S800C Android camera. It is asking me for my Gmail and password. I don't know any Gmail or password. What shall I do now?

I have tried many Gmail and passwords but I am not getting the right one. Please help me to solve this problem.


You can try to recover your Google account information at this site. If that doesn't work, you will unfortunately need to perform a Factory Reset. While this will wipe all the data from the camera, it's the only way you can get past the pattern lock screen at this point. To learn how to properly perform a Factory Reset, follow the steps in this great VisiHow article.

A technician told me to press the volume + button plus the boot button simultaneously and a logo will appear followed by some words. He said I should select the option reset and the phone shall reset, when I did that, I see the logo but no menu. I tried it several times and each time I could not see the menu. Please can you help me?

  • When the logo appears, press the Volume and Power buttons quickly a second time. You can try to press both or just the + or -.

Too many patterns attempted, how do I find data reset factory, my phone is not responding through the steps you are showing?

How do I find reset data factory on Android devices

It is hard to give instructions if the poster does not mention what device they are trying to hard reset. All Androids have different ways of hard reset methods. Attempt using combinations with the Volume and Power buttons. Search YouTube for hard reset (your device name) and you should be able to see a video tutorial if you get stuck.

Please help retrieve my pictures from password locked phone?

Hi! I have a Samsung Galaxy Note Edge which is locked. I usually just use the fingerprint lock. But one morning, when I opened my phone, I just saw that the phone is asking for the backup password! And the most unfortunate thing is, I have completely forgotten my password OR the phone doesn't want to accept my correct password. I am completely locked out. All I desperately need to do is RETRIEVE some pictures so I could hard reset. I just really need the photos. The phone is not connected to the internet, so I cannot unlock it via Android Device Manager. My phone has no backup. My phone is not rooted. Would you please teach me what to do? I need to fix this by tonight because I urgently need to use the phone midnight. Thank you so much in advance!

See if Samsung's Find My Mobile will unlock your device. If your device is still locked then pull the battery to soft reset and wipe the screen with rubbing alcohol to attempt again to access with your fingerprint. Finally, use Kies to transfer your pictures if you do have to hard reset.

You can still recover your phone using Google Accounts Recovery. To hard reset your Micromax Bolt a62 follow this Youtube Tutorial. A hard reset is done manually with no software. If you mean that you want to install new firmware then you would use Micromax Stock ROM.

How to solve restriction on failed login attempt?

What should I do to setup the device?

Flash new firmware on the device once you have hard reset if you are still being asked for the email.

I have locked the pattern on my Lenovo K900 hundred. It asks me to put my ID and password, I do, though being correct it does not accept as well?

I am putting the correct ID and password, and it is not accepting, showing as invalid ID and password

Log into your Google Account on the PC. Go into your Settings under My Account and then Security to make sure that you do not have 2 step verification enabled. If this is not the problem the use Google Accounts Authority to see what you are doing wrong when trying to sign in.

I use a pattern to get in my phone. I woke up this morning and it asked for a password. I have no idea what it is. I used to use fingerprint and had a 4 digit number backup but it doesn't work either?

I went to dashboard and locked it and put in new password but it doesn't work either

When you created the new password in Google's Dashboard, you may have suspended access to your device for 72 hours. To get around this you will have to flash new firmware on the device.

I uninstalled system dialler on my Android phone and upon switching it off on opening it asked about security password through speech please help?

Use two fingers to double tap and not just one to scroll or use the touchscreen to enter your password and access Settings. In the upper right hand corner of this page you can search TalkBalk and find the instructions specific to your device.
