You do not have to hard reset your Samsung to remove the lock. Use your Google Account on the device or Samsung's Find My Mobile to remotely unlock your Samsung Mini.

How to wipe and format Tecno m3?

When I go to wipe it, there is no option for yes

If there are no "YES -- ERASE ALL DATA" or "YES" options, then the recovery mode firmware is corrupt. Your other option is to boot up, unlock the phone, tap on "Settings", "Backup & Reset", "Factory Data Reset", and "RESET PHONE".

Was this helpful? Yes | No

If you can get neither, then you will need advanced debugging and reflashing tools and ROMs that are not too safe and not recommended: all of those can be performed at a mobile phone service center. If you have nothing nearby, you can try this advice from RomKingz.

Recovery and repairing my Tecno M3?

When I press the power button it is stuck at the Tecno Windows. I attempted to recover it through the hard reset and failed by pressing the volume + key, home key and power button. Have tried SP tool, I couldn't get any result.

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Your phone is stuck in a "Boot Loop". The first thing to do is remove the battery for about 5 minutes to see if a Soft Reset resolves this. If this does not work, your next possible solution is to see if the Power Button is actually stuck. Sometimes with h a pin and a can of compressed air, the button can be back to normal. Finally, your last solution is to install new ROM on the device.

Unable to hard reset my Xiaomi one plus by China?

I've got a problem with my Xiaomi Mi one plus clone. I can't choose the wipe/data factory reset with the volume key.

Use the Power button to confirm your selection. The volume keys are only used to navigate the menu. Watch this YouTube Tutorial that shows the process of hard resetting the Xiaomi One Plus. Check out the Xiaomi Community Forum if you are still experiencing issues. Most of the postings on the forum receive several replies. The forum and customer support is what sets Xiaomi apart from other iPhone clone devices.

Tecno M3 does not power ON. it only shows light and trip off immediately?

Tecno M3 does not power ON. it only shows light and trip off immediately

Use the SP Tool and try to flash new firmware on the device. It sounds like you are experiencing a soft brick on the device. Remove the battery first, to see if it will power on long enough for you to install the new firmware.

When I use my opera mini for the internet, my Tecno m3 shows like this ( EXIT.......................X)at the bottom then I cannot use Internet service so what shall I do?

When I use my opera mini for internet browsing, my Tecno m3 shows like this ( EXIT.......................X)at the bottom then I cannot use Internet service so what shall I do?. I have tried: Format. I think it was caused by: Sometimes my mobile displays "com.Android.system is stopped

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Check your APN settings. You are correct in assuming that the internet issue is connected with the Android System error message. This YouTube Tutorial shows you how to correct that message. Update to the newest Opera Mini browser from Google Play. Once you have installed it, make sure that the Data Save Mode is not enabled.

Phone Tecno M3S isn't working as it is supposed too and I need it to work as usual?

Hello my phone Tecno M3S went off completely and now can't go on, its just going on and just having the name Tecno on the screen. Please help me get my phone on again. I have tried: Getting the battery off and giving it some minutes but nothing happens. I think it was caused by: Maybe charging it a lot in a day

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Either your battery is corrupted, or you need to install all new Firmware on the Tecno device. Unfortunately, Tecno devices are known for this performance issue. Usually, the owner ends up having to install a new firmware on the phone before it will work properly again.

My Tecno M3 automatically turns on data and WiFi?

In any time data and WiFi is on. I have tried: I can't do anything. I think it was caused by: I think it is a virus problem

Did you recently install an app before this started happening? There are a few apps out there that will do this. Some VPN apps require you to go into the app settings and configure the data/WiFi preferences. Other VPN apps are useless virus containing apps.

Was this helpful? Yes | No

In your phone Settings, go to your Data section and enable Restrict Background Data. I am not sure if the Tecno has this option but most Android devices do.

When I load an app like WhatsApp, it shows exiting and the phone will not work anymore?

When I load an app like WhatsApp, it shows exiting and the phone will not work anymore. I have tried: I have tried to reset it. I think it was caused by: I do not know

This is usually an issue with Play Store and the app not being updated. Apps like WhatsApp also require available space in your storage. Are you out of space on this device? Clear cache and data from apps, then put your phone into Recovery Mode and choose Wipe Cache Partition. Log into your Google Play account and update the apps that are force closing your device.

Did you save the report in Google Drive or another cloud storage account? You should always do that with documents that are too precious to loose. Try using SP Tools to install the new firmware but you may still have to hard reset the device before you can install the new firmware.

I TRIED HARD RESETTING MY Tecno M3, IT SHOWED ME THE FACTORY RESET OPTIONS IN Chinese LANGUAGE.I SELECTED THE FIRST OPTION WITH THE POWER BUTTON BUT IT REFUSED TO RESET. I HAD TO REMOVE THE BATTERY AND TRIED TO SWITCH IT ON BUT IT ONLY SHOWS THE Tecno LOGO AND STOPS THERE. Please, WHAT DO I DO?

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Follow the process in the YouTube Tutorial posted above for hard resetting a device in Chinese. If you are stuck in a boot loop, try removing the battery for a few minutes first. Tecno is notorious for bricking. Sometimes people can still be able to install firmware on the device with SP Tools as a last resort.
