Question about Tablets & eReaders

I went into the settings spot and clicked reset to factory settings. When it came back on there was this target like thing on the screen that moves around. The only thing that clicks is the arrow button. Have I totally screwed this up?

If you did not back up or copy any data (email, program data, contacts, documents, custom settings, etc.) before resetting the device then all of that is gone including any apps you installed since it was new. The device is now just as it was when it was first taken out of the box.

    The procedure must have failed. I would try and contact the manufacturer and find out what they suggest. You may need to reinstall the operating system and this is a bit of a complicated procedure\\\\

Why will the tablet not move past the initial start up screen?


It could have hardware problems. It could have software problems. To troubleshoot software problems, when on the initial start up screen carefully introduce a paperclip end into the *Reset* button hole until you feel a little click. Your device should then turn off automatically. Some start up again automatically, some don't. Give it a minute or so and it it doesn't start back up by itself. Push and hold the power button as usual.

This should clear up any software problems and this doesn't cause you to lose any data or changes you've made.

Hardware problems such as a memory chip gone bad will not be helped by a Reset Button reset nor will they be helped by a *Factory Reset" which is done by holding down a combination of Volume(-) and Power buttons to get into the Android factory reset options text list. These are drastic and will cause you to lose any and all personal data and changes you've made to the device. A factory reset will put the device back to new condition. But, alas, even a factory reset will not help if you have hardware problems.

How do I clean my samsung galaxy tablet


You can try to delete unnecessary files go to Settings, select Apps then click on Program.Select the apps that you want then click Uninstall. To stop unnecessary programs running in your phones background go to Setting, choose Apps. Select Running then click on the program you want to stop then select Stop. Restart your phone. If you experience the same thing then you might need to reformat your mobile. Before you do the soft reset on your mobile be sure that you have a back up copy of your personal files because it will be deleted after the reset. Be sure also to fully charge your device. To soft reset your phone go to Settings. Select Privacy then choose Factory Data Reset then choose Reset Phone then click Reset Everything.

I have my grandaughter tesoar tablet is frozen on the white screen with tesoar across the screen i need help


Hi, you need to do a factory reset!

First, turn your tablet off. Then, power the tablet back up by holding down the volume (either + or - ) and power buttons simultaneously. Continue holding the volume button until the screen says "Booting tablet in recovery mode." This will give you a picture of an Android. Tap the android, and you will be given a screen with several options. Move between the options with the volume + and -, and select with the power button. Go to the option for Factory Data Reset and select it. Scroll down to `the Yes, and then the tablet will erase its memory back to factory settings. Once it has completed, select Reboot Tablet Normally.

let me know how you get on!

I have a new tablet, charged and protected but when I was changing contrast settings it went black and I cant get the screen to come back on past startup


Sorry about this.
Well, seeing it is a new tablet, either of two things can be done.

Your tab is booting beyond Startup but you ain't seeing it because of the contrast/black screen setting.

To confirm; step into a dark room/space and hold a flashlight very close to the screen, you'd see your tab is at its home screen already.

Anyway, you will have to default factory reset it as it is or you could attempt to navigate (while in the dark room/space and using/holding the flashlight) Swipe to open/unlock it----Settings----display and brighteness-----brightness----'move cursor up to increase brightness'. Done.

Second option with dark room/space is tedious and strenuous.

Factory/hard reset is an easy option to try.
At the same time, hold/press both the volume up key/button and the power button/key.
Follow the system prompt afterwards.

Or

Press/hold down the volume down button/key and the power button.

Follow the system prompt thereafter to factory/hard reset your tab.

Best of luck.

My apps libaray on my coby kyros mid7015 isnt working!!! everytime i try to go into the apps libaray it keeps saying that theres been an unexpected problem and that it has to "force close" why is...


Sounds like you need to reset AppsLib.
This fix will wipe all your data, so be sure to back everything up.
Go to Settings.
In settings go to Go to "Privacy".
Select Factory Reset.
Select Reset Device.
-----------------

Connect the unit to the computer using the USB cable and "Select" Erase Everything" The following will occur: • The screen will display COBY • The screen will display Android • The unit will reboot to the Menu screen

Step 6- The unit will prompt to calibrate. Hold stylus on the center of the target. Repeat as the target moves around on the screen. ****DO NOT *** press Return or Home". The unit will display "calibrate success" and will return to the main /home menu automatically. If for any reason the unit went into standby mode and the touch screen does not respond, reset the unit using a pin.
----------------------------



After the Factory Data Reset, do not launch the Applibs yet until: 1- You have configured your Wi-Fi 2- Check/enable "Unknown Sources"- Go to Settings, Application Setting. Done.

You can now open appslib.
