Base from the description of your problem, there;s no way we can perform a hard reset on the unit since there;s no reset button on this particular model, the problem here is a corrupted software and can only be resolve by taking this unit to a service center for repair.

When turning on, all I get is the green android logo. Then the android word comes on and nothing else happens. It never opens.


Try holding the on button for about 10 seconds then release. Wait a further 10 seconds and switch on as normal. This soft reset often (but not always) frees up a frozen screen.
Good luck.

How do i factory reset a coby kyros mid8024?

2. Hard Reset

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.

My nobis pc tablet wont get past the second loading screen


Do a hard reset. Hold the power button down for twenty seconds. This is a hard reset if this does not solve the problem I recommend returning it as this is more than likely a manufacturer issue

Perform a Reset

Soft Reset
When you perform a soft reset, the device deletes any data that has not
been saved but saves any data that has been stored in memory. Try
performing a soft reset if the device does not respond when you tap the
display or press a button.
To perform a soft reset, use the stylus to press the reset button.

Hard Reset
NOTICE: When you perform a hard reset, you lose all the data stored on
your device.

Perform a hard reset if:
• You want to delete all the data stored on your device.
• You forget your password and need to clear it.
• Your device is experiencing severe operational problems and you have
already attempted a soft reset.
NOTICE: It is strongly recommended that you back up your data before you
perform a hard reset. See ActiveSync Help on your computer for more
information.
To perform a hard reset:
1 Press and hold the power button.
2 With the stylus, hold the reset button for about 2 seconds.
3 Follow the instructions on the screen.

My Edge 305s GPS is not working. Everything else runs perfectly fine, it just will not acquire any satellites. I tried a soft reset. It won't let me hard reset though.

Hard reset is not very easy, so follow carefully instructions above.

Now simple advice, did you check in your parameters that the GPS transceiver is turned on ?
There is a mode with GPS off, don't ask why ...
Refer to your manual to find the menu.

Over charging sometimes does that effect.

However, best is reset the device. Try soft reset first, if not sufficient, try hard reset.

Soft reset : Hold mode and lap/reset for 10 seconds, then release.
Hold start button then for 10 seconds, device should restart.

Hard reset : Hold mode and start button. 10seconds after, still holding them, pulse press lap/reset button, then release all.
You should get a screen asking to confirm reset to factory settings. You'll loose all data by this, but device should restart with normal behavior.

The screen has frozen and I can turn it on or off I tried the reset button but that doesnt work either


Hi,
There are two types of Reset are present
1)Soft Reset.
2)Hard Reset.

Just pressing the Reset button using compass or needle will just do soft reset,It is not more effective in this case.You have to go for Hard Reset.

Hard Reset:All the data's will be lost once you do this.but will solve your problem.
Hold Reset for 5-10 seconds.
Flip power switch quickly 3 times. If this doesn't work.
check the light next to the power switch. If it is flashing yellow, do the same steps. It might take up to two to four tries.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is
resolved or post a comment for further
assistance.


thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)
