This thread is intended to gather the many "Factory Reset" replies scattered all over the forums into one location. Hopefully, this will be a community effort and you'll participate if you can. If you know of a procedure that works for a particular tablet (that the example in the second post does not work for), please post it in the same format as the second post for consistency. Place the Make & Model of tablet on the first line to make searching easier. Your "reward" for doing so will be the gratitude of anyone who uses it successfully and hopefully some clicks of the "Thank" thingy in your post. You'll also have the appreciation of the Forum Staff. This is a thread for ANSWERS NOT QUESTIONS. Questions belong in the forum for your tablet or, if there is no forum for your tablet, in the Q&A section. Any questions posted here may be deleted without notice by the Forum Staff. Note: Anyone using one of the procedures below should be aware that ALL personal data will be deleted from the tablet as part of the process. (If your tablet has a MSD card, I'd recommend removing it as well. Just in case.) Edit: I've come across many recommendations to try a "Soft" reset, before resorting to a "Hard" reset such as the ones in this thread. Most say to hold the Power button in for about 20 seconds or until the power menu appears (Power Off if you get the menu.), Then wait about a minute before powering on again. Couldn't hurt, worth a try to avoid losing your stuff.
