Your only option is to send the tablet to the manufacturer to be reset. Or, you can reset the tablet to the original factory setting yourself. You will loose everything on the tablet as it will be reset to the factory specifications and image.

How to do a hard reset using external keys?
If your tablet is completely locked up and you cannot access the menu functions, use the following method to perform a hard reset using external keys on your tablet:

  • Turn tablet off. You may need to use two hands in this process to press and hold buttons properly.
  • Turn on the tablet with power button, wait a full 2 seconds from the time the tablet starts showing the manufacturer logo, then press and hold the down Volume key. (you should not hold down the power button after it turns on and logo appears)
  • "Android Recovery" will appear on top of screen if timing is done correctly. Release volume button. (if you continue to press volume down at that message, the message will cycle through "RSD, Fastboot, and back to Android Recovery. Make sure message states Android Recovery before you go to next step). If stuck at a RSD protocol or Fast boot screen, reboot the tablet by holding power button then pressing the volume up)
  • While screen states "Android Recovery", Press volume up button, the screen will say "Entering Android recovery mode" and a few seconds later an Android robot graphic will appear alone on the screen. Release buttons
  • Hold down power button and then press the volume up key together to see the Android Recovery screen menu selections
  • Use the volume buttons to move up and down through selection in this menu
  • Using the volume down button, scroll down to "Wipe data/factory reset"
  • Tap Power hard key to select option
  • Scroll down to select "Yes, delete all user data"
  • Tap the power button to select. Wiping and formatting data will take a few minutes.
  • You will return back to the Android recovery screen menu.
  • Tap the Power button to "Reboot system now" which will power-cycle tablet and eventually power back on to the Initial Set-up / Welcome screen present when you first turned on your tablet.

Make sure you backup your files by connecting it to a PC (if you have access to one) via USB cable,you will have to do a hard reset, otherwise there is no other way to get past the lockscreen (unless you have a recovery option with your email address)

Below is the process to tell you how you can hard reset your Samsung tablet (should work with any tablet):


  • Ensure that the Samsung tablet is powered off.
  • Press the Power and the Volume Up button together till the device displays the start-up logo.
  • Once the logo is displayed, release the buttons and wait till the device enters the Android system recovery mode.
  • On the displayed screen, use Volume Down button to go to the wipe data/factory reset option (Volume Up and Volume Down buttons are used to highlight the displayed options on the Android system recovery screen).
  • Once the option is highlighted, press the Power button to select the option. (Pressing the Powerbutton in Android system recovery mode selects the highlighted option.)
  • On the next screen, press the Volume Down button multiple times till the Yes -- delete all user data option is highlighted.
  • Press the Power button to hard reset the Samsung tablet device while clearing the dalvik cache along with the process.
  • Once your device is hard reset and rebooted successfully, you will see that the unlock pattern obstruction is also gone, and you can now set a new unlock pattern on your Samsung tablet.

SOURCE: how do i remove the password on my 7 inch tablet android

After trying password for 5 times, it shows a "forgot password" option. Click on it. Provided the gmail id and password you first used to logn into your tab. It will remove the password from the device thus unlocking it.

Maybe try going to the router settings and changing the security settings. See if turning off wifi password solves the problem then turn it back on.

How do i unlock the tablet


Try different unlock patterns. Once it rejects you it will ask you to sign in to your google account. Type "null" in the user name line and "0000" for the password. I was locked out of my android phone and used this to get past the unlock pattern and back in to my phone.
