Hold the power button down until the 10.1 shuts down ( which could take a while ), and then re-start.

Hi Guys!

I have the same problem above. My daughter changed my Galaxy Tab 10.1 password and I don´t know how to hard reset my Tab without needing to entering the password. :(
I tried the "volume down" + "power" button combination, but it didn´t showed me a clear restore option (as my video shows ).

Anyone here can help? I can´t live without my Tab!
Thanks in advance.

Switch off

Et voila ipe device

Or

Waterboard your daughter until she remembers

I thought after a few attempts it asks for your google id to unlock?

We only cover Galaxy Tablets on this forum, not the Galaxy S phone........but it looks like you will have to do a "factory reset" on it.

Instructions here...... http://www.knowyourm...g_galaxy_s.html

I've done this too and my tab won't switch on...nada...nothing. I'm not getting a gmail password request (which I know) at all either, it seems to only be for screen design locks, not passwords.


Scrap this - I got it to work Whoop! Whoop!

yes try a factory reset........although you will lose everything on it so if you want to save anything then install Samsung kies on your PC and then read about how to use it.

Hi,
I am new Galaxy Tab 10.1 User. I want to ask if any of you know how to restore the default lock screen with no password.
In settings\Security\Screen (Secured with pin) I have no "disable option"
When I enter my PIN on the next screen "Select screen lock" Options Swipe and None are not active with Note that they were disabled by administrator, encryption policy, or credential storage. There's no Administrator or encryption policy applied to my Tab.
Any suggestions will be appriciated.
Thanks
Galaxy Tab 10.1

I have a second hand Galaxy tab (1 month) but can not get connected to my BT hub. The reason seems to be a previous password stopping me.How do I remove this old password.
