Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video we are going to show you how to restore factory settings on a Microsoft Lumia 535. First thing we need to do is turn the phone on. Press the button on the side of the phone.
The screen is activated.
We are going to swipe up from the bottom.
Swipe up to get to the Menu.
Swipe sideways get to the Settings and Options.
We are going down to Settings.
Settings contain the gear icon. Click on the Settings icon.
Now we need to find "About" somewhere near the bottom.
We have the option here. Click on "About".
Now, we have some options.
The option to reset your phone is on the bottom. We have to click Yes. If you have a problem with your phone, you need to reset the factory settings. This is how you do it.
Here, we have a warning and the option to erase the SD card too.
You want to erase data on your SD card so I am going to press "Yes".
We have another warning.
To confirm it, click yes again.
It is going to take some time.
The phone has now restarted. The process may take a moment or two depending on how much data you have on your phone.
Saying goodbye - nice and friendly.
Now we are going to wait for it to turn off.
As you can see, the phone is turned off.
Now we want to wait to reboot.
The phone is rebooting - it is going back to life. You see that the Microsoft symbol has appeared
The screen is showing the progress which means that it is restarting the Settings on the reset.
We cut away all that was loaded for some considerable time when resetting the data. So now all your data have been wiped - apps and everything. We have reset the settings. As you can see, we are on now on the Welcome menu where you will able to choose the language. We are going to choose English. You also have an option to do an emergency call if you happened to be in an emergency. We are going to press next. We just selected English.
Change your phone's language to the one used by your SIM card.
We will need to restart your phone. So we press OK.
SIM card is different to the language of the phone.
So now it is going to be restarted in order to reconnect the language.
Now the language has been selected.
We have been taken back to the Welcome menu. We are going to finish up some settings, so I am going to press next.
Let's start - Menu.
We have the options to connect to a network, choose phone settings, set up a Microsoft account and activate your phone. Click next.
We have to accept them to use the phone.
Now, it is trying to find a wireless network - we can skip this.
We could show you how to do this another time.
You have to select this based on what you needed to do. If you want to automatically connect to WiFi networks and accept terms for me, I will allow it to exchange WiFi network access with your contacts. You just choose the option according to which one you prefer. Click Next.
This is the phone settings.
How would you like your Windows phone to be configured? You can customize it if you choose. It is advisable to choose the recommended option.
We have the option to choose the time and date.
This is okay for me so I am going to click Next.
We have an option to sync in with Microsoft's other elements, other utilities options such as Xbox or some other things.
I am going skip this Sign in later because we do not need to this now.
If your Apps need to finish installing, as it says it is taking a moment or two, this hopefully will soon complete the reinstallation process and resetting of the factory settings.
We can see that all of the apps have finished installing so we can click on Next button.
We are almost done.
We are just about done setting up the phone. Next, we will walk you through setting up your phone's activation.
So here we have some more options - such as Join the Product Improvement Program.
This is where data will feedback to Microsoft directly. You can select or unselect this if you do not want to share any of your anonymous data. Click Next.
And now we have been taking back to the main page.
We have a little message from Windows just to say Hi. You are ready to go. Your Lumia 535 is been reset to the factory settings and you are ready to go.
