What information do you need from me? I've been corresponding for over an hour
Tech Support Specialist: Dan, Computer Support Specialist replied 21 days ago

First, let me explain how this will work. We do not send passwords, but what I can do is help you reset your tablet which will delete the current password ***** with any data you might want to be saved.

No. It goes to RCA screen then WI -Fi log in
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
I'm there now
Tech Support Specialist: Dan, Computer Support Specialist replied 21 days ago

Okay. We may need to try this more than once so be patient, please. With the tablet powered on, press and hold the reset button for several seconds until the tablet powers off. Wait a few seconds then power it on with the power button and see if you can log in.

Tech Support Specialist: Dan, Computer Support Specialist replied 21 days ago

Okay, now power the tablet down completely, and then hold both the volume up button and the power button until the RCA logo appears on the screen. When the screen changes to the Android bot on his back, press and hold the power button and then press volume up once more.

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
