    Try these steps and see if they work. If they do not, please provide your serial number or the exact model of your android tablet.

     

    1. Power off the tablet.
    2. Press and hold the Volume up button, which is located closest to the touch screen lock switch.
    3. With the Volume up button held, press and hold the Power button for 3 seconds then release it. Continue holding the Volume up button.
    4. Once the tablet screen turns on, release the Volume up button.
    5. On the Select Boot Mode screen, select [SD Image Update Mode]. Use the Volume up and Volume down keys to navigate through the menus and use the Power button to select the desired option.
    6. On the Android system recovery screen, select wipe data/factory reset.
    7. When prompted to Confirm wipe of all user data, select Yes -- delete all user data.
    8. On the Android system recovery screen, select reboot system now. Your data will be erased.
    9. Your tablet will reboot and go to the Welcome screen. Follow the onscreen steps to setup your tablet.

    Thanks so much but  I did not want to reset to factory settings.   It is not backed up and I will lose everything.   Is there a different way to do this??

     

    Thanks

    Login to the tablet with your password. Click on Settings, then select Security. Click screen lock and confirm your password. Now, click the password option, then choose a new password.

    Use a different device to log into your Google account and reset your password there.

    You can reset your password from your Google account on any machine. As long as your tablet connects to the internet it'll use the new password next time you go to log in.

    Just use a different device to log into your Google account. From there you can reset the password and PIN as needed. Wait a bit for the changes to propagate and try firing up the tablet again. It'll connect to the internet and allow you to log in using the new credentials.

    Clearly written, simple and to the point. Worked on my old outdated phone. Excellent!

    You can reset the password by logging into Google on a different device and changing it there. Then wait until your tablet has connected with the internet and use the new password to log in.
