The paperclip is used to activate the reset button in this small hole; You will hear and feel a click of the inside button, in less than 15mm of insertion. Do not force unduly!
1. Insert paperclip, until you hear the click of the button. Keep paperclip inserted, and press and hold the black power button.
2. In about 10 seconds the blue PROSCAN screen will appear. Continue to keep black power button held, and release paperclip.
3. A few seconds later you will see an Android 'guy' lying on his back with belly open, and a red triangle (with !) symbol hovering above his belly. Release power button. This means we are on the verge of being able to break things. Note that after a minute or so, if no further action is taken, the tablet will shut down, and then be restarted normally.
4. Press and hold power button. Insert and remove paperclip. You will see a screen titled Android system recovery. (Note that repeated insertion of the paper clip will alternate the display of the Recovery menu). Release power button.
5. Use paperclip to scroll down the list of options. To reset the tablet, selectwipe data/factory reset. Press power button to make the selection. (If you go past the desired option, keep on clicking, as the selection will scroll back to the top once at the bottom).
6. Once reset has been selected, you are now at the final chance to back out or commit. All the menu items, except for one are labeled No. To commit to the reset, select Yes - delete all user data and then press power button.......FOUND ON ZOLYGON.COM

How do i do a hard reset on a magellen maestro 4040?

  • 1 Slide the Magellan GPS unit's powericon1.png switch to the off position, if your GPS has a two-way slide-style switch. Hold the switch in the off position for 8 seconds or more to reset the device.
  • 2 Slide the switch to the reset position if your GPS has a three-way switch. These switches feature "Reset," "Off" and "On" labels. Hold the switch on the reset position for 10 seconds to initiate a reset.
  • 3 Inspect your GPS for a reset pin hole if the unit has a push-down power button rather than a switch -- check the bottom and sides of the device for a pin-sized hole. Insert a pin or a straightened paperclip into the hole, pushing until you feel a slight pop. Hold the pin or clip down for 10 seconds and the GPS will reset.

    Turn your router upside down or look on the rear for a small pinhole. It should be labeled "RESET." With the router turned on, unbend a paperclip and insert it into the hole. You will feel a small button inside, which you'll want to press with the tip of the clip. Hold the button down for 10 seconds, or until the lights on the front of the router stop blinking. The router will reboot within about a minute and be ready for configuring from its virgin state.

    Palm won't shut off but displays the Palm shield with the note "powered by" or it displays a message that says it it trying to connect to tyhe desktop. I have pressed the reset button and it will shut off...

    Here is a link to Palm support. It sounds like you need to do a hard reset. Try that by depressing the reset button on the back of your unit. You will need to use something pointed like a paperclip and insert that into the hole and hold in in while you hold down the power button. When you see the Palm powered logo let go of the power button and follow the onscreen directions.

    Here is the link for Palm support in case you have any other issues.
