Is there a way of resetting an Android tablet by opening it?

Ad

Unless your Android tablet has a Reset button somewhere around the device's body, then no, there is no way to reset an Android tablet by opening the case. However, if there is a Reset button, then you don't need to open the case anyway; simply press the Reset button and your tablet will reset.

If by opening your Android tablet you mean turning it on, there are a couple of ways that you can reset your tablet. If you can get to your tablet's Settings application, do the following:

  • Open the Settings application.
  • Scroll to Security and tap it.
  • Tap Backup and reset.
  • Tap Factory reset.
  • Go through the prompts to perform a Factory Reset on your Android tablet.

However, if you cannot get into your tablet's Settings application because you forgot your password, you can try a couple of things. If you enter the incorrect password up to 20 times, your tablet may ask you for your Google account information. Enter it; your tablet will unlock, allowing you to change or remove the password. If you don't remember your Google account information, you can try to recover it here. If your tablet doesn't ask for your Google account information, if you can't recover it, or if you never logged into a Google account in the first place, you will need to perform a Factory Reset from your tablet's recovery mode. This process is fairly easy, and is outlined in the great VisiHow article below.

Locked tablet lark x4 9.7 recovery mode, no volume keys?

I have a lark freeme x4 9.7 and I completely forgot my password and there is no volume button as you increase/decrease volume in the Android system. I tried to connect it to a PC but I read it has to be unlocked. Is there a way to hard reset this tablet?

My Acer DA220HQL that runs Android has got the "FBI" virus. How can I boot in Safe Mode or do Hard Reset?

Hi, I have an All-in-one-PC Acer DA220HQL that runs Anrdoid. So basically it can be viewed as a huge tablet. It has got only one button for turning on and shutting down. This virus does not allow me to do anything from the running device. So I need a hardware solution to boot in Safe Mode, or to Hard Reset the whole system. I was trying to contact Acer support (it is out of warranty), but they only suggest to refer to technical support, which is a bit complicated considering the size of the device, and the problem itself. Do you know how can I boot in Safe Mode or how can I hard reset the device? Thank you!
