Soft Reset

If your Xperia Z Series is frozen and not responding when pressing on buttons or tapping the screen, try a soft reset. A soft reset will not wipe any data from the device.
  1. Open the SIM card door cover on the side of the phone.
  2. Use the end of a paper clip to press the small "OFF" button until the device vibrates. The Xperia will shut off, allowing you to restart.

Hard Reset

If you wish to return your Sony Xperia Z Series smartphone to factory default settings, a hard reset is the answer. If you perform a hard reset, it will wipe all data and settings from the device. You may wish to perform these steps if you've been experiencing lock ups or other types of malfunctions, or if you will no longer be using the device.
Note: If you think you may need any information stored on the phone in the future, be sure to backup the data.

Option 1 - Hardware Buttons

  1. With the device powered off, press and hold "Power" and "Volume Down".
  2. When the "Sony" screen appears, release both buttons.
  3. The Recovery screen will appear. Use the volume buttons to toggle the selection to "Factory Reset", then press "Power" to select.
  4. Use the volume buttons to toggle the selection to "Yes", then press "Power" to select.

Option 2 - From Android OS

  1. Open "Settings".
  2. Select "Backup & reset".
  3. Tap "Factory data reset".
  4. Select "Reset phone".
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Z Series will then go through the process of formatting the memory. Wait for it to restart and factory default settings will be restored.

Many pattern lock attampt but no benefit kindly guide me how to unlock motorola xt-502

Hi Sohil,

Sadly, if you're unable to get past the lock pattern, you'll have to perform a factory reset. Please follow the steps below to factory reset your device. Keep in mind this will delete all content from the phone.
  • Power off the device
  • Press and hold the R and M keys while pressing the Power button. You will see the red M logo on your screen then the screen with the Android-bot and a blue exclamation mark inside a white triangle
  • Once this screen appears, press both Volume Up and Down keys, then release to get the Android system recovery
  • Use the Volume Up and Volume down buttons to select wipe data/factory reset
  • Choose Yes -- delete all user data to confirm that you would like to wipe all data from the device and press the Return key
  • Your device should now cycle through the wiping/reset process and return to the Android system recovery screen
  • After userdata is cleared, the "reboot system now" option will be highlighted by default. Press the return key to power off/on your device
  • It will take a few moments to arrive at the initial Android Welcome screen.

  • Your phone will reboot and be back to factory settings. You can now set everything back up on your phone again.

    Thank you,

    How do i undo a mater reset on my cell phone

    You can't reverse a master reset. Once it's reset to factory that's it.

    Master resets wipe the phone back to clean factory settings. Once wiped. It's done.
