Fang Hedgebat: Hello everyone and anyone.
I have a cheap Android Jellybean tablet which my little brother has locked
on airplane mode. Exact model is unknown as I didn't bother to check back
when I didn't know it was important. The tablet has no removable battery
cover, and comes with a power button, the volume buttons, and a button with
a symbol similar to a U-turn sign which turns the screen on and off (unsure
of its name.) I can turn it on to the screen where it'll ask for the
pattern (which I can't do.) I've tried pushing all the buttons for twenty
seconds, then the power button in a combination with the volume up, then
down, then the screen lock (is that it's name?) button, then both volume up
and down with the power, all for about twenty seconds. All they do is light
the stand by button to green, as if it was on, but the screen doesn't
blink, or go black or anything. It remains off. There are also no
vibrations, but it could be because the tablet might've been locked on
silent mode, which I can't change, unless it's supposed to vibrate
somewhere regardless. Anyways, I also have a reset button, and I thought it
would work. I got a paperclip and held it for ten seconds, let it go, then
it just rebooted normally. Then I tried it for thirty seconds, then a
minute. It seems that it won't do anything as long as I hold it, and
whenever I decide to release it, it'll just reboot my tablet. Is there
something obvious I'm missing? My tablet is mostly charged, about 70%,
going by the little icon. This was purchased in the streets of downtown Los
Angeles during Christmas time, most likely a stolen tablet, so I can't
really call for support. Any help would be immensely appreciated.
Seriously, I'd like worship you. Anyways, thank you anyone who read this
long, and if this is happening to you, please say something too, because
I'm hoping my tablet isn't defective or something like that.
Thank you again.
Steve Nordquist: I kind of wish you showed which method does which reset (Factory, etc.
etc.) I like the extended description here a lot except that it's not clear
what you're enumerating; alternates for various makers? For the people who
forget unlock codes; just recreate when you were making it up and it'll
come to you again. Synapses...they come back after hibernation in mice!
WellbornBump: I did that thing with the power button and the volume
But I needed to do it again
When I do it the screen powers off

xanScorp: What if it refuses to power off? I've held the power button it for 10 - 15
seconds, didn't work. The screen stayed black on a Smartab SRF77BK after
power down and back up trying to get its App Store working (not to be
confused with Google Apps Store). After holding to power it back on, the
screen remained black. I know it's on, because if I connect it to my
laptop, I get the sound for when a device that is powered on is connected,
but otherwise, that's all. No visual on the screen at all, and I cannot
power it off.
