It's not my computer...

It's not my computer. It's my ASUS tablet. Instead of creating a new account to place parental controls on it, I now somehow have the entire tablet in kids mode and cannot figure out how to get out of it.

Technician's Assistant: What's the model of your Asus tablet?

I have it so locked up, I cannot get to that information unless I just don't know how to locate it. I feel so stupid...........71 years old and I do this.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Asus tablet?

I've tuned it off and back on twice. Once I followed the online instructions for a samsung by holding down the volume button to open in safe mode.....but my home page is still the kids page and only the apps I included there

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Android Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't think so. I just need to know how to get rid of the kids mode. My original reason was to block some websites from myself and this is what I get

I have tried several times, holding down the entire volume button. Mostly, I still get a home page that is the kids mode with no way to visit settings. Two times ago, I got a black screen with tiny options ot 1) recovery 2) fast reboot 3) normal reboot. Not knowing what to choose, I chose normal and got the kids mode home screen again. This last time I tried, I held the volume button in "lower volume" position and now I have a black screen with two blue bars all across the top and on the left upper corner I have 9 lines of Chinese characters.

No, I've already been charged $47 when I was told it would be only $5. I cannot afford another $39

That wasn't me that was the system automatically asking you, you can go ahead and deny it for now. Could you go back to that black screen and this time can you click on recovery?

Will recovery wipe my files from my tablet?

No recovery should give you more options.

ok im back to the black screen with "select boot mode"
Options are Recovery, Fastboot, Normal. You want me to select recovery, right? I know that sounds redundant but I've learned the hard way to double check when I can't undo something
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Ok, I clicked on recovery
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
It is taking forever to boot

OK, I have the WELCOME page.....now what? I have the option of 'next' in lower right but there could be a settings icon in upper right

Sorry for not responding, I had trouble with the chat function on here. You have to click on the 'next' option

Ask Your Own Computer Question

Since you were not able to do anything in Safe Mode you have to go through Recovery mode.

oops.... next lets me know I have to get the code

Could you elaborate? What do you mean by code?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I meant my very long wifi code.........had to connect to restore Google stuff. Now my option is to 'keep your apps & data"...I choose that, right? instead of set up as new

Yes choose "Keep your apps & data"

Customer reply replied 3 months ago

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
