My iRULU Android tablet won't Factory Reset?

When I press the power button and the volume up and down buttons, I do not ever see any Factory Reset screen. What am I doing wrong?

If you are not able to reset your iRULU tablet with button presses, it is probably because you are using the wrong key combinations, or not releasing the buttons in the proper sequence. Recovery Mode options vary for each Android device and can be different even on devices from the same manufacturer. Depending on your model of iRULU tablet, you may need to try other combinations, which include:

Reset a bought tablet from stranger?

The device boots normally but asks for email that the tablet was registered to. I bought it from someone. Don't have the email or password. I have tried: the factory reset did not work. I think it was caused by: the person reset it before selling.

Unfortunately, this means that the stranger sold you a nonfunctioning device. You do not have the credentials of the original owner nor the proof of purchase if it was not sold at a shop. You are only left with two options: finding the owner or finding a security hole in the verification process for the exact model and Android version, which can be quite hard or impossible.

Why isn't my tablet turning on when I push the button?

It was working as soon as I got it today but then I had to redo my info in it as soon as I turned it on. So now all it does is light up when I push the power button.

My iRULU won't proceed past the startup logo screen and I've tried rebooting and factory resets. what else can I do?

The iRULU eXpro X1Plus I own was working fine last I used and now it won't progress past the start up logo screen. I have been able to do the hard start and get to the recovery options but none work as the next time I start the unit it stops at the exact same place. any help is welcome! The articles I browsed explain how to get to the recovery menu and I can do that it's just that nothing more happens after reaching the restart. I have tried: Restarting, hard reboot, resetting with pinhole on bottom right of unit. I think it was caused by: I have no idea. It was working last use just fine and then when I go to turn it on nothing more happens
