    Non responding Factory reset on Android Acer A500 tablet

    My Acer A500 tablet does not save anything. It shows that documents are saved but on restart they would be missing. I have tried the factory reset option but it does not seem to respond. Why is it happening so?

    You could have tried for a hard reset too when you found the factory reset not working. Resetting the device would be an ideal option for the issues related to saving though but first we got to clear the reset issue. You might have held down the power button too long so it could have gone to the restore mode rather than the reset mode. Any way try holding down the power button for exactly about three seconds. If you can feel the device vibrating then you can understand that you held it for too long. After relieving the power button, start toggling the switch. You will be able to see the messages confirming the removal of user and cache data, showing that your device has been swept clean. After doing this the tablet is likely to freeze. You could manually restart the tablet after 5 minutes or so to find a completely restored device.

    The best way out of this it to do factory reset on your device

    steps for the same is :


    - You have to press and hold the sleep/wake and Home button for some times

    - hold it for 10 to 15 seconds or so
    - then a red slider will apear on the screen
    - you just hve to ignore that red slider
    - then apple logo will appear on the screen
    - this time around you have to release the buttons as you see the apple logo
    - its done
    this will help you in fixing the issue

    First to perform a Soft Reset:

    :: Power the device Off.

    :: Remove the Battery cover and Battery.

    :: Wait 3-10 seconds.

    :: Replace the battery, battery cover and power the device back on.

    :: After that perform the factory reset.

    My dear friend, if the factory reset function is not working on your Tablet and documents are also not getting saved then in that case, i am afraid that you won't be able to solve this issue yourself.Because it can be a hardware issue on the motherboard of your tablet and it's solution might include the disassembling of the device which i think that you won't be able to do.So i can only advise you that you contact your costumer service or take the tablet to a service center and get it fixed there.

    dear friend

    scan your device
    download and install an updated antivirus
    then restart your device
    after that if your problem is still there
    now try to reset factory settings
    then reset your device

    Hi Friend,

    You have tried to do factory reset but not worked.

    So you can now try Hard reset.

    Just follow these instructions:

    Press and hold power button for 3 seconds.

    Now it will open recovery mode.

    Select Factory/ wipe data.

    Select it.

    Now hard reset will begin.

    After it your device reboot.

    That's it.

    All the Best

    hello friend,
    As you said that you have restored factory settings a number of times and still problem is unsolved.
    I think there is some virus in your device which is hindering device's working. So i suggest you to install some good antivirus and scan your device properly.
    I am sure that a number of virus will be found and hoping that your issue will be solved.
