Questions and Answers

My Polaroid Tablet is locked. It is up to a screen where it has the email and password?

It said there were too many pattern attempts. So we have to enter the email and password for Gmail. But we do not have WiFi connected or an email account.

When your Tablet asks you for your Gmail username and password this is s prompt that you can use in order to help gain entry to your device without having to perform a Hard Reset with the absence of your pattern unlock password.

In order to enter your Gmail information, you are going to need to have the internet connection so that you can have your Gmail information checked online for you to open up your device.

Without having internet connection you are going to need to perform a Hard Reset on the device by performing the following steps:

1. turn device off

2. press and hold power + volume key

3. Use volume keys to highlight Factory Reset

4. press the power button to make the selection

5. your device will fully Factory Reset

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.

If you have hard reset your tablet and that still did not solve your problem, your last option is to find the Stock ROM for your device and install it on the tablet. This should restore the tablet to factory settings.

How to unlock 7

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.

Forgot parental control password?

Hi, I have a Polaroid 7" kids tablet and forgot the parental control password and cannot access setting. Can you help?

Use "kidsafe" to override your Parental Control password. You can then go in and change it but this time write it down so that you can remember.

I don't have an email password thing?

I need help unlocking my Polaroid Tablet and I don't have the email check thing I don't have the forgotten password at the bottom.

As suggested above you will have to install new firmware as there is no hard reset option for the Polaroid tablets. You can find the necessary Southern Telecom links above.

I have Android Tablet. I've tried my best to unlock it, but I didn't.. can you help me?

When I turn on the Tablet it shows security password. I have forgotten that..

After attempting several times, you should be able to click forgot password or get an option to log in with your Google Account. If you see neither of these then you will have to hard reset the tablet.

Is there a reset button, or way too hard reboot it?

Model is Polaroid kids tablet 3. The tablet is turned ON, and the touchscreen is unresponsive. It is unable to be unlocked when swiping. Holding down the volume and power button does not do anything. I need to know if there is a reset button or a way to remove the battery to Hard Reset it.

There should be a little pinhole in the back. It does a soft reset. Try that first, then try to install the new firmware update from the links for Southern Telecom in the above answers. If the touch screen is completely unresponsive there may be a bigger hardware issue but you will not fully know until you try the first two options.

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.

How do I factory reset my Polaroid tablet or is there another way

When you see a message like this, first use the pinhole in the back to soft reset the device. If that does not work, then go to the Southern Telecom website and install the Stock ROM update for your specific device.

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.
