Question: How do I unlock my device if I have forgotten the PIN number?
Answer: If you have a Garmin Lock on your nuvi, zumo or StreetPilot c500 series and you have forgotten your 4 digit PIN number you can unlock the device by returning to your Security Location. The Security Location is the location that you set when you first enabled the Garmin Lock on your device. Returning to the Security Location will unlock your device.

If you have forgotten your PIN and Security Location please contact Product Support for assistance. Please note we will require a copy of the receipt and there will be a charge to unlock the device as this issue is not covered by the warranty.

To contact Product Support in your area go to http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontact

Hard Reset is the only way. It scrubs the phone clean.

Android. Power down, hold power button and the volume up button until you see the recovery console. you may be able to back up first.

How do I unlock my tablet


If it's android then you can reset it but you will lose all the apps you installed along with any saved passwords.
power off the tablet by holding down power until screen goes blank.
hold both the power button and the volume up button for at least ten seconds.it should boot to android logo...then a robot with red exclamation.leave it alone until the option to reset screen appears.
follow onscreen instructions to reset.

I cant decode my husband's cellphone. He use a pin number to open the phone. Is there a way how to decode it


No, and don't mess with the pin, this is set by the carrier and if it is accessed with the wrong code after so many attempts, the carrier will lock it and consider it stolen.

Resetting Pin on Blue Hat ATM machine


Hi abbeybath,

We have the same atm/bank for our son. Here's the fix:
1 - push the reset button on the back of the ATM near the battery compartment.
2 - insert the ATM card and press the BALANCE button to change the user name (need to do this before getting to the pin)
3 - enter your childs name and push enter when complete. Cancel will delete an incorrect letter.
4- enter the default pin (1234) - this will bring up the DEPOSIT, WITHDRAWL, BALANCE screen.
5 - Press ENTER and it will show the current/default pin. Input the new pin number you desire and press ENTER again.

All set. Hope this helps!!

Get a boyfriend stop jumping the car...JUST KIDDING. You must have a reset button, it's not very big , you can push the reset with a pin, it's a small cercle on the right hand side of your radio. Try that and let me know
