    Resetting your Iconia Tab A500

    • Answer
    • How do I fully reset my Iconia Tab A500?

      If your Iconia Tab A500 completely fails to respond when you press buttons or tap the screen, you may need to reset the hardware and software to factory default settings.

      PRECAUTION

      During the process, all data stored on your system will be overwritten. This means all your files, such as email and photos, will be erased. Therefore, we recommend making a backup of all personal data before starting the recovery process.

      NOTE

      You should perform a hard reset only when all other options have failed to restore your tablet to an operational state.

      SOLUTION

      To reset the tablet, use a small thin object, such as a paperclip, to press the recessed reset button. This button is located on the bottom side of the tablet, next to the USB connector, as shown in Figure 1.
