Does the device need to be fully charged before attempting the factory reset?

This is a Polaroid 4G tablet. The pattern is forgotten and the email/password is not being accepted. I saw the video to reset but was wondering about the fully charged part. Thanks.. I have tried: I have not tried yet. I see others posting that their device froze up, so I was wondering about the fully charged question.. I think it was caused by: This thing asks too many questions...

You want at least 80% charge when you attempt a factory reset. Many people only attempt once the device is fully charged because if something goes wrong, you want the time to fix it before the battery dies.

Polaroid table if volume key is broke and no email address on tablet?. I have tried: The reset button on the back of tablet, power button and volume button hold for 5 seconds. I think it was caused by: Another child reset my son's password and he doesn't know it

Use the link in the above answers to get the specific Stock ROM for that tablet and then you will be able to recover the tablet. In the future, always enable a Google Account even if it is a dummy one that you keep signed out. This will allow you to access the device. If you ever used Google Play to download apps onto the tablet, you should at least try that email and password to see if you can gain access because that would associate with the Google Account.

10" Polaroid won't finish booting up?

Tried Factory Reset/Power+volume but it still just rotates.


It needs the new firmware update installed. You can find it for your specific tablet in the Southern Telecom links.

Hi there, my touchscreen isn't working?

My Polaroid tablet is working fine but the touch stopped working and I don't know how to cut it off without its touch, can you help me?

Try a soft reset and then a firmware update. If your touchscreen still does not work then it is most likely a hardware issue.
