A. Stevens :

Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question!

A. Stevens :

When you say "connect to Google"

A. Stevens :

Are you trying to use the Google app?

A. Stevens :

Or are you going to www.google.com in the web browser?

Customer:

I have just tried then play store it comes no connection retry. I have tried playstore app and get same answer.

A. Stevens :

That's very strange

A. Stevens :

Would it be a possibility to try a factory reset of the device?

A. Stevens :

  1. From a home screen, tap Applications Applications icon (located at the bottom right).

  2. Tap Settings.

  3. Tap Privacy.

  4. Tap Factory data reset.

A. Stevens :

Keep in mind this will erase the data on your tablet but since you said you have only have it for 1 day

Customer:

This tablet is running latest version of Android with Samsung touchwiz. I am looking at apps then personalisation. Are you familiar with this product. ?

A. Stevens :

Yes

A. Stevens :

What do you mean you are looking at personalisation?

Customer:

Personalisation is a sub menu in DEVICE section which has a private mode.

A. Stevens :

Right...but what is it exactly you want to do in the personalization menu?

Customer:

I was following your instruction to tap settings then privacy. That is not how this works.

A. Stevens :

Ah, I understand.

A. Stevens :

I am sorry, the settings are a bit different for your specific tab.

A. Stevens :

Can you go to settings >> backup and restore

Customer:

I need someone to tell me how to connect to google. For example internet works but a link I have from Netflix to download there app. This directs to play store and I get Not connected.

A. Stevens :

Right..

A. Stevens :

I think you have some software configration issues

A. Stevens :

That is why I am suggesting the factory reset

Customer:

I am at back up and restore. Sorry about confusion.

A. Stevens :

No problem.

A. Stevens :

So you hit Factory Data Reset >> reset device

Customer:

I have pressed reset. Android erasing all data and restarted tablet.

A. Stevens :

OK great, can you try to access app store now?

Customer:

I have homescreen as it came from box. Asking me to select language and to tap accessibility to change accessibility settings

A. Stevens :

Right so go through the initial setup

Customer:

2 minutes

A. Stevens :

OK

A. Stevens :

Let me know when you have it ready to go

Customer:

Ok ready. Wifi on and password ***** to Google

A. Stevens :

OK, so does app store come up now?
