gmail pin login and android sync question/problem
Tuesday 17th of January 2012
I use the security pin to access my gmail account. Its a number they text you each time you log in to gmail. I did a factory reset on my phone(droid3) and during the set up it askes for your gmail info so it can syncIt wont let me log in. It says my password and username don't match. Im guessing its because of the pin number.How do I get it to log in and synk if I can't enter the pin?Im away from a computer and can't access it via the web.Any ideas?
How do I do a hard reset
Thursday 03rd of January 2013
On Dec 26th my son turned his Nextbook 7 inch Android Tablet off after playing with it and when he turned it back on, it won't go past the start up screen. I have tried pushing the reset button but when I insert the pin it just feels like hard plastic or something, there isn't a "button" in there to push. I've been trying to get info on how to do a hard reset on it but no luck....When you turn it on the screen comes up with a quote from Abe Lincoln, then the screen blinks and the same quote comes up, then it changes to the screen with Nextbook in the upper left corner and a picture of a woman listening to headphones on the right side. It will not go past this screen. I tried to register it so I can call for tech support but it asks for the kernel version and a build number....I can't get this info because it won't boot up for me to get to it. Can anyone help PLEASE? My poor baby just got it for Christmas and then just the next day is when all this happened so he hasn't been able to enjoy it while he's out of school for the holidays. Thank you anyone who will just try to hel

I have a whte android tablet thats about 7" wide. It has no name or model on it, but it does say WM8650 on the user manual. I had this tablet out of the box just long enough to charge the battery, set the wi-fi, and change the time zone. I was looking at the other settings and noticed a clalibration screen. I looked at it but ignored it and went back to the settings window. All of a sudden, I found the screen icons don't work anymore. I cant get this thing to do anything. I reset it using the little pin hole in the side, but it didn't go back to the original settings. It still my time zone in it. I can scroll the the icons on the right side of the screen, but none of the icons anywhere work.So, 10 minutes ot of the box and this thing is useless. Any ideas how to reset it and make it start working again?
How do I reset my Android PIN?
Monday 10th of June 2013
So, I set up a PIN (I dont care if you know it, its really basic: 1112)And I have this app, that lets you lock certain things on your phone with this PIN, like notes you might want to keep private if you where to say loose ur phone, you dont want a hacker to look at, or songs you dont want someone else to hare unless they know the PIN, etc...Anyway, I have this note I locked with this PIN, and I try it every time 1112, and it sais "Nope sorry wrong PIN, try again" every time, no matter what I enter. Is there a way for me to get this PIN? Seeing as its clearly broken cause I know for a FACT it IS 1112, or at least a way to reset it? And the app doesnt have something like a "Reset PIN" function built in, how would I go about doing this? PS: Im really new to this forms so I hope I have this in the right area of it.
PIN Auto Reset itself
Sunday 02nd of February 2014
I know this is going to sound like a total newb post, and like user error, but I want to preface my issue with this.... I have been an Android user for about 4 years, work tech support for Sprint, and have rooted and ROM'd a few devices. I only day this to show I'm not new to Android even if my question seems like it. OK. I PIN lock my device's and have used the same PIN code for years. Today, I go to unlock my tablet, enter my PIN and get a wrong PIN error. I tried it multiple times in case I just hit the wrong # accidentally but no luck. Despite what it seems I have NOT forgotten my PIN. Anyone else had this happen? Any ideas? A couple other things that may help. I use the restricted profiles and I'm the main profile. My son uses a pattern lock and at the same time my PIN reset, his Pattern was set to slide. I do know how to hard reset it, but prefer not to.
Help with Lock screen PIN
Wednesday 25th of February 2015
I use an 8 digit PIN for my lock screen, and somehow it has been reset to a 0 digit PIN, i.e., just press the ENTER. I still get the PIN entry when I wake the phone up and, if I go into Settings->Security->Screen lock, I'm asked for my PIN (to be able to make changes), but it won't accept a null value PIN. I thought maybe do a factory reset, but again it asks for my PIN with null not allowed. * Anyone have any ideas how to fix this? Thanks in advance! Posted via the Android Central App
How Do I Unbrick My Tablet?
Friday 20th of March 2015
An OTA update from the other day has soft bricked(?) my tablet. It is a DigiLand DL701Q and I was running the stock OS, Android 4.4.When I turn it on, it boots to recovery mode and shows "no command" in the background. My laptop now shows it in Device Manager as "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)", but under Portable Devices, I can see that Device Manager still has my actual drivers for the tablet.I can not use ADB because I either get an error telling me there's no device, or any .img I try to install via adb gives me an "installation failed" message on the tablet.I have done a factory reset at least 5 times, it did nothing. Fast Boot does nothing. I don't have an SD Microcard and since I can't use ADB push, I have no way to put an image file onto it.I have used the reset button with a safety pin and it doesn't fix anything. I've done Wipe Cache Partition and still nothing. Restore User Data does nothing.Windows knows that I have attached a device when I hook it up, it gives me an error that the device has malfunctioned.Is there any
How can I get around the pin on a Samsung Galaxy S4
Sunday 31st of May 2015
My daughter entered the pattern on her S4(actually her little sister did) incorrectly so it is now prompting for a PIN - she said she knew it was but it is telling her it is incorrect and if she enters the wrong PIN 10 times the system will do a factory reset. She has one try left. She didn't back up her pictures so that is main thing she wants to save. I have read that the system should ask for her gmail account/password which she has but I can't find a way to enter that anywhere. I went to the android device manager and was able to go through the lock option but it comes back and tells me the password won't be needed as the device is locked already. Any idea how I can get it unlocked with her gmail account?
