Questions and Answers

I can't get the recovery menu to come up on my device?

I have tried holding down the up volume button and power button at the same time, but the recovery menu will not appear. What should I do now?. I have tried: I have held the power button and volume up button down at the same time.. I think it was caused by: I haven't used my tablet in a long time, so I have forgotten my password. I'm not sure why the recovery menu will not appear. I've tried it several times already.

The key combination can be unique for each model, and some models can even have no key combination at all, which would require you to reflash the device using the official tools and firmware.
