Hello Martin,


The only thing I can think of would be a hard reset. Now keep in mind that this would cause you to lose all your non-stored information. Anything that's not saved to SD card will be lost---of course your contacts would be save because they're saved to your Google account.


When the device is turned off, simultaneously press the Volume key up and down, and then press End / Power. When an exclamation mark appears, press the Home key to reboot


Let me know if you have any questions or concerns, otherwise please note that while you've placed your deposit, you still need to click 'accept' in order to close the question and ensure your expert gets credited by JustAnswer. This is of no additional cost to you.

I see. I'll have to opt out of this question because I'm not sure what you can do from here.
