I have an old Galaxy Tab 4 which I have forgotten main password. After googling how to after a number of attempts of doing the following when I get to the part of the instruction 'use power button' - It just powers off. I have tried touching gently, quickly, slowly and so on. All this has taken hours as I have only managed to get tablet to boot up in the correct manner about 5 times in 2 hours of continual trying
instructions are - Power off, Hold home button, volume up and power on at same time, then use volume button to highlight 'wipe data/ factory reset. Then it says use power button. As I say it then just powers off instead of going to next instruction.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as always. many thanks Patient lady ;)
I don't think that should affect the reset. Do you have an SD card inserted into the tablet? If so try removing it and try the reset steps again. Have you looked at this YouTube video of a Galaxy Tab 4 tablet undergoing a hard reset?
Hi difarn yes I have seen this and following the instructions, it still says I need to use the power button after highlighting. thanks again, looks like I might need to go and buy another used tablet from somewhere. I had taken out the SD card...
Thanks all for your help. Now sorted I took it into the local jailbreak shop and paid £25 - certainly worth it. Nearly there, I now just have to get the correct SD card as found the one i have is too small. Thanks again all for replying wtbw x
