The trick is sliding the display lock switch at the exact right moment, otherwise it will not engage. Here are the steps that have worked for my self and several other Xoom FE owners:
1. Power off the unit - if not already
2. Hold down the "Down" volume button at the same time you hold down the power button for 3-5 seconds.
3. While still holding down the "Down" volume button, release the power button and toggle the display lock slide a couple of times (located next to the volume controls).
4. The display should now show "Booting Recovery Kernel Image" and then the Android Robot will be displayed when the unit is in the rebooting phase.
5. Since the device is being Reset (erased and re-imaged), it is normal to see "Please wait for pre-load data" and this process takes about 6-8 minutes. The Xoom FE is now being Factory Restored to the original image.

My SM-T550 is completely frozen.


Soft Reset

If the device is frozen or unresponsive, try pressing and holding the “Power” button for about 20 seconds. This should force the Galaxy Tab 10.1 to restart normally.

Hard Reset

A hard reset will set the device back to factory default settings and erase all data on the device. This is normally done when troubleshooting methods prove to be fruitless.

Option 1
1.With the device powered off, press and hold the “Home” and “Volume Up” buttons while powering on the device using the “Power” button.
2.The Recovery Screen will appear. Use the volume buttons to toggle the highlighted selection to “wipe data/factory reset“. Press “Power” to select it.
3.Highlight “Yes — delete all user data“, then select “Power” to choose the selection.
4.Once the reset completes, you will be prompted to “reboot system now”. Choose this selection to restart the device.

The hard reset is complete.

How do i reset my asus transformer tablet tf101 i have a blank screen will not turn on


Perform a soft or hard reset on your Asus Eee Pad Transformer Android tablet if it is not functioning correctly. Here's how.

Soft Reset

You would want to soft reset the device in the event that it has become frozen or unresponsive. To do so, press and hold the Power button on the top-left side of the device for about 10 seconds until the device powers off.

Hard Reset

A hard reset (also known as a factory reset) will clear all data and settings from the memory of the device and set it back to factory default settings. You can perform hard reset on the Asus Eee Pad using the Android OS menus or the hardware buttons.
Method 1 1. Power the Eee Pad off.
2. Press and hold the Volume Down button on the left side of the device, then press and hold the Power button.
3. Continue to hold both buttons until a bootloader screen appears.
4. Wait for the prompt that says to "Press <VOL_UP>" then press the Volume Up button to start the process.
The Asus Eee Pad will complete the hard reset process and reboot into a factory default state.
Method 2 1. Open the Settings app.
2. Select Privacy.
3. Choose Factory data reset.
4. Select Erase tablet.
5. Select Erase everything.

I have no volume no sound Would a Hard Reset fix this problem?


A hard reset is worth a try but it is unlikely to fix the problem, it sounds like a hardware issue.

Here are instructions for a hard reset
Make sure the tablet is OFF.
Press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons at the same time.
When the Android starts to flash, release the buttons.
Then try to press different hardware buttons until you are given a list of options.

Note: If Volume Up and Power doesn't work, try Volume Down and Power.

Tablet wont boot into anything but screen with horizontal lines..just got it today and charged battery and now i get nothing?


Holding the power button down for 10-15 seconds is considered a hard reset on most tablets. If it still won't load you can try doing a factory restore.

  • Make sure the tablet is powered off
  • Briefly tap the power button once, then hold the power button and volume down until you get the boot menu
  • There should be an option to factory reset or something to that affect
