Ok the Mach Speed Trio Stealth Pro 7c?

Customer:

it just says trio android 7c 2.3 nothing about stealth. i put a password XXXXX the unit and have never been able to use it.

Joshua C. :

Ok one moment while I pull up your tablets information

Joshua C. :

To factory reset your device you turn the tablet completely off

Customer:

ok it is off

Joshua C. :

Then hold the volume down button and press the power button while continuing to hold volume down

Joshua C. :

If the volume button that you hold doesn't work power off the device and hold the other volume button and press the power button

Customer:

ok i am

Joshua C. :

you should get two icons on your screen

Joshua C. :

Use the volume buttons to move between the two icons

Joshua C. :

and select reset

Joshua C. :

This is the standard way to reset most android devices including Mach Speed tablets

Customer:

i get a penguin in the upper left corner but no other icon

Joshua C. :

And when you see the penguin what else happends

Customer:

nothing

Joshua C. :

Joshua C. :

What happened to the tablet that you want to factory reset it?

Customer:

i put a password XXXXX the unit when i got it and then i could never the password XXXXX again

Joshua C. :

I am waiting for the support manual to finish downloading from triomp3.com the website is extremely slow

Joshua C. :

Apparently they had some Black Friday deal on their tablets

Customer:

when i called mach-speed their support was not very knowledable

Joshua C. :

Its a knock off company

Joshua C. :

They copy other devices

Joshua C. :

Your tablet is a copy of the LY-F1 from china

Joshua C. :

I am still looking and waiting for this service manual to download

Its just a wordpress site thrown up on the internet

Joshua C. :

Well I just checked all the documentation they provide and the clone info

Joshua C. :

If the factory reset doesn't work using the volume down + power something is wrong with the device

Joshua C. :

And Machspeed doesn't support resetting the device

Joshua C. :

They also say if you set a password XXXXX don't remember it they wont assist you in any way
