The first option will be for you to contact the person whom you purchased the Tablet from in order to gain access successfully. If you cannot reach the person then you will need to Factory Reset the whole Tablet so that you can gain access successfully. There are different ways to reset a Tablet but being that you have not given the specific device I will place below the generic way to unlock an Android Tablet.

1. Turn off the device 2. Press and hold the volume up button 3. Press and hold the power button 4. Use the volume up and down button in order for you to highlight the Factory Reset option 5. Press the power button to select the Factory Reset button 6. From here your device will start the reset process

In order for me to tell you exactly how to unlock it I will need to know what kind of Tablet it is. But most likely it is some combination of the up or down volume key and the power/home button. If any of those combinations don't work try the Down Volume, Power, and Home Buttons all at once.

No, you will need to ensure that the device is switch OFF when performing this process and make sure that the device is not on.

To access the recovery mode menu, your phone/Tablet must be powered off. If you are unsure of the button press combination, double check the steps and find out the brand and model of your device. These key press combos are different for most phones and you'll need to right ones to access your reset menu.

If you forgot your Google account password, you can try to recover it at Google's site here:

https://www.google.com/accounts/recovery

Go through the steps to recover your password. If somehow, you are not able to recover the info, you will have to Hard Reset your Tablet to get past the pattern lock. Find out the brand and model number of your Tablet and check the manufacturer's website for possible Hard Reset options. You can either do a button press combo to enter recovery mode or find a flashing tool with firmware to install over your existing ROM.

How can I reset password without actually logging onto Tablet?

Okay so I knew I my password and so did my siblings. I've had the Tablet for over 4 months now locked.... which is pretty annoying because its money wasted. I was wondering if you could help me unlock it?

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

The only way to do this without logging in to your Tablet with your Google account info would be a Hard Reset. You'll need to find the Tablet's brand and model number to check for available methods from the manufacturer's site.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

If you mean the password you set up for the lock screen on the Tablet, you will need to make a few more attempts and have the Tablet prompt you to enter your Google account info. Even if you've forgotten your details, you can try for an account recovery by following the Google Account Recovery options outlined earlier.

Hi Daniel, I am not able to Factory Reset my Celkon CT3 Tab?

I am getting error too many patterns and I do not remember Gmail ID and password, please help me, it is an Android version.

You can try to recover your Gmail login info at Google's recovery site. Please reference the answers provided earlier in this guide, and you will find a link to the Google Account Recovery portal.

If unsuccessful with the recovery, you'll have no choice but to Hard Reset the Tablet. To do this, you will need the USB cable that came with your Tablet, a PC and the following software/driver tools. Download the Android tool and drivers package here:

I have an Android 2 Tablet I somehow got locked out tried reseting did not work?

I tried resetting it several times holding the power and volume buttons nothing works

Not all Android tablets come equipped with the recovery mode that can be accessed with the button presses. Find out the brand and model number of your Tablet and you can check with the manufacturer's site if such a method exists. Chances are, you will need a flashing software to use with a computer to install a new firmware to act as a Hard Reset for your Tablet.

  • turn off the device
  • press the following:

power button

volume button (up/down or both)

My kid has a Crypto novapad 70s104 fc Tablet?

He has forgotten his pattern and no matter what we do we cannot even reset the Tablet

On the Crypto nova pad you are going to need to use the reset button on the bottom of the Tablet along with your power button on your device.

On the locked menu, enter the email address and password (Gmail) that you used to sync with your Google Play Store. You have to be connected to WiFi or data connection for this. If not, you will have to do a Hard Reset. :
