    found this info ...You will need to power off the device. Once you have powered off the device you will need to hold both the volume up and down while pressing the power button. Hold all buttons for about eight seconds then release them and wait. The android logo will pop up with a red or orange triangle.Once that pops up you will need to hit the back button and it will open a menu and you will use the volume keys to move your selection and the power button to select what you want. Hope that helps

SOURCE: my android tablet is "frozen". Will turn on but

has anything been deleted from it when it has been plugged into a computer or has anything been deleted from the device itself from its root directory? if not and its gone like that by itself, it could be corrupted software or a missing root file which is usually bad at first, now what i know about some tablets is if it wont work theres a recovery file usually internally but this is in some tablets only that ive read about, i also have one but havent needed to try to restore it and it can be done from an engineering mode, this is possable by pressing the power button and another button like the home button at the same time once the unit is off untill it turns back on with options, but as for some models im not sure of but i will have to look this up at some stage as i am working on tablets at this time so unless you know what you are doing i wouldnt attempt it, once i have gotten through some tablets ill be able to give a better resolution on this subject with others. the advice ive given wont work for all as pressing power and home will start different options up on different tablets and versions.

phandroid.com/2008/10/25/how-to-reset-your-g1-and-start-from-scratch

"It came time to part with my review unit of the G1 (Thanks T-Mobile!) and send the phone back to its rightful owner. But what about all the personal info on the phone? The apps, texts, e-mails, AIMs and all that jazz? A quick search of AndroidForums.com turned up an easy way of restoring your G1 to factory settings:
if you power off your phone and hold the home (shaped like a house) and the end (red hangup button) for about 20 seconds you get a triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1.
Now all you have to do is pop open that pretty QWERTY keyboard and there are several keyboard shortcuts you can use to accomplish what you want to do:
Home+Back reboot system now - (Soft Reboot)
Alt+L - Toggle log text display - (Toggles between the exclamation and menu options)
Alt+S - apply sdcard:update.zip - (Not brave enough yet)
Alt+W - Wipe data/factory reset - (What I chose, had to re-register, out of the box settings)
thee last option (Alt + W) and restored my borrowed G1 to factory settings. I'm sure the soft reboot could be helpful too, should you run into problems a troubled application may have caused. We didn't try the other 2 options so use at your own risk.
By the way, I couldn't live without a G1 so I made the leap and purcahsed a G1 with a T-Mobile service plan. I'm still a loyal Verizon customer and will simply have to keep both plans... but I NEEDED the G1. So basically, you can expect the application reviews and insight you've gotten at phandroid.com to cotinue since we've got our very own device now!

Coby kyros mid 7022 is stuck on lock scteen, how do I get around this? Also goes into hibernate for seemingly no reason. Very new android user, no clue what I'm doing


Here is the instruction on how to do the factory data reset when a customer locks the system and lost his security password/pattern. This instruction works for MID7016 and MID7022. An end user must follow each step precisely. Otherwise, he/she will not access to the system menu mode.

  • Connect the AC power adapter.
  • Turn on the system.
  • Press and hold the power button until the popup window of "Device options" appears on the screen.
  • Select the "Power off" option from the popup window. You will see another popup window of "Power off".
  • Select the "OK" option. The unit will turn off.
  • While holding down the "BACK" button, press and hold the "POWER" button until Coby logo appears on the screen.
  • Release both buttons once you see Coby logo on the screen and wait for a while. The Coby logo screen will change to Android logo.
  • Wait about 15 seconds after you see Android logo. (Do not press any button while waiting. If you do, you will not be able to access to the system menu.)
  • Press the "BACK" button once. The system menu screen will appear on the screen.
  • Choose the "wipe data/factory reset" by using the "HOME" and "MENU" buttons. (The "MENU" button will allow you to browse down through the option list, while the "HOME" button will allow you to browse up through the list.)
  • Press the "BACK" button once you select the "wipe data/factory reset" option. The confirmation message will appear on the screen with YES or NO option.
  • Choose the "Yes - delete all user data" option by using the "HOME" and "MENU" buttons.
  • Press the "BACK" button once the "Yes - delete all user data" option is selected. It will perform the factory data reset. Wait until it is done. Once it is done, the main system menu will appear on the screen again, and the "reboot system now" option will be selected as a default. If not, you will need to select the "reboot system now" option from the list.
  • Press the "BACK" button to reboot the system. The system will reboot with the initial factory data setting. All user data will be lost.

Give the reboot at least 5 minutes. Do not assume the unit has frozen
