HELLO! PETE I had put a pin code on my one tablet and I cannot get to open the screen. IT is locked tight. How do I break the code to get back into my tablet. I am not very smart on this stuff. But, I will do,jy best of what you would ask for me to do. I appreciate you helping me, dear. Thank Y ou

IT IS NOT THE TABLET THAT I AM ON. I HAVE TWO TABLETS. IT'S MY OTHER ONE. SORRY!
Computer technician: Pete, Computer Expert replied 7 months ago

It isn't possible to break the code, as that would make it a very insecure security method.

Your only option is to reset the tablet.

I won't be able to do this remotely for you, however I can give you the instructions to do it yourself.

What is the make and model number of the Android tablet that you are having problems with?

Press and hold the Volume Up, Home Button, and Power buttons until the recovery menu appears.

Try holding the 3 buttons and let me know if that lets you into the recovery menu?
