ok then Michelle thanks about Factory reset but how do I do the Reset

Customer:

press and hold down the up arrow volume key and held it down and then press the power button and keep it held down till you see an android robo on the screen then you release both the keys

Customer:

you will see reset to factory option in the list

Customer:

use the down arrow to highlight the reset option and once it is highlighted press the up volume button which acts like select or enter buttom

Customer:

Customer:

this will take 5 to 10 mins it will restore the tab to the factory setting and you will be able to use is just fine.

if the up volume and power button dont work then try the down volume and the power button combination to launch the reset options.
