Soft resetting :

-Back to factory settings: This should maintain your data (contacts/messages/calendar/notes etc), just returning your N97 back to all previous settings

From menu:
Settings> Phone>Phone Management>Factory Settings

hard resetting:

The traditional method won't work as the N97 doesn't have the old keypad. After you've backed up your data onto memory card/pc/ovi, turn your phone off and simultaneously press these four buttons circled in red.

  • Caps shift
  • Space bar
  • Delete button
  • On button
You'll know it's worked when you see the initial set up screen, asking country of origin.

youll need to preform a hard reset to remove the lock if you or daughter doesnt know code.

depends on kindle version.
hold power button in on position for 30-40 sec and let go and restart
or hold power and an android menu will appear
once you get into menu choose wipe cache first and then choose
wipe data/ factory reset and then reboot
this should remove lock

depending on kindle edition their may be a reset hole that needs to be pressed with a paper clip or saftey pin hold reset button for 30-40 sec.

My neice did something and now the tablet is locked and its asking for a code which involves circles and some kind of pattern please help. its a apad android tablet

Hello, What you are seeing is the dot matrix lock code. Simply put: instead of a combination of numbers, the lock uses a pattern of "Connect The Dots" combinations. This is exceptionally hard to just crack without the proper knowledge and equipment. Instead of just designing it to wipe your phone/tablet, Google designed the lock to ask for you to log into your Google account after so many failed attempts, so that you can reset the combination. The easiest thing to do would be to intensionally guess incorrectly until this event occurs. If you have a problem with this, then the last-ditch solution would be to preform a factory reset. Should you need to preform this, please feel free to ask about how to go through the process. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, or simply reply.

How do you reset the engine codes for a 1997 lincoln? can you replace factory cat with a preformance cat system, that won't screw up the computer monitoring. i have the 32v intech and the first bank is...

You'll need an OBD II scan tool to clear them. A performance cat replacement is fine. I would replace it, due to the fact that alot of times the insides of the converter break apart inside.
