You could try the reset button on the back. It's not really a visible button but a hole into which you can poke a paper clip.

Turn on the device until it gets to the pattern lock screen and
then use a paperclip to gently press the reset button in the hole in the back until you feel it click.

It should reboot but it will probably STILL require the pattern.
(Most do, only a few don't)

If it does indeed still require the pattern you'll have to go with the factory reset option which will wipe all your data and restore it to the same condition it was when it first arrived. This is drastic but there's just no way around a forgotten PIN or Pattern other than this. They do it that way to protect lost devices from having all your password protected sites like GMail etc. being accessed and taken over by somebody else.

The way to do a factory reset on an Android tablet is turn it off and then turn it back on by holding down both the power button and the volume(-) button at the same time and keep holding them for as long as 30 seconds until you see some green writing on the screen. This green writing is list of options among which you will see a Wipe Data/Factory Restore option (or similarly worded) . Use the volume(+) button to scroll to the Wipe Data Factory Restore option. Once it's selected, push the power button once to engage. On most Android devices, you will then get another screen with writing that is a list of no no no no and one line with a proceed with the reset option. Scroll to it using the volume (+) button and select it using one push of the power button. The unit should then either turn off or go to another screen where you can turn it off using the power button.

When it's off, give it several seconds and then push and hold the power button until it boots up. You will have to go through the set up routine again and update apps you want updated and add back the apps you had installed from the Google Store. You will have to again add your password for the wi-fi you are using before you may do any updates because the password will have been wiped, too.

Good Luck and I'd recommend using a PIN instead of a pattern and WRITE IT DOWN so it can't be forgotten.

    Capt. Neal, yours is BY FAR the best written answer to this question. Very well written so even a novice could follow your instructions; however, I have a Jlabs Pro 7 Tablet and NO COMBINATION of Reset/Power/Volume keys will get me to the reset screen. It keeps coming up on the pattern lock screen and won't go past that, no matter how long I hold any combination of keys and it only has the power and volume rocker buttons (plus the standard reset hole on back). Any other suggestions I could try?

How do I unlock my tablet if I forgot the pattern I used


If you forgot the pattern, then you need to hard reset it.
But, you will lose all the data.
If you tell the exact model of your tablet, I can give instructions for hard reset.

How do I unlock


1. Enter wrong pattern 5 times and wait for 30 seconds.
2. Select "Forgot pattern" and enter your email account username and password.
3. Make sure you use the same account that was used to activate the device and double check the password by logging in to that email account in a browser.
4. If you don't have access to the original email account, you will need to do a hard reset and loose your settings and apps on the devcice. The data on the memory card will not be wiped though.
Note: if you can't remember your email password, you will have to visit the email service support page to get it reset.
