Default versus touchpad factory reset

Firstly, let me say hello as I have only just registered here.

Now, on to my query. I recently bought a Versus Touchpad 7 (Android 4.0 "ice cream sandwich", distributed by KMS Components) for my son. He has since put a password lock on, and forgotten the password.

The instruction manual states the only way to gain access when the password is forgotten is to perform a factory reset, however, the only way I know of doing this is to have access to the settings menu on the tablet. I have tried entering the incorrect password several times in the hope of being able to unlock it via the google account, this option is not given though.

Does anyone know if there is any other way to carry out a factory reset on this tablet?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Steve.

Welcome stevie!
Is there a small pinhole size hole next to the HDMI connector?
I was looking at the manual for it online here:

Edit: Look at page 8

Yeah, it's there, thank you, completely missed that in the book.

Does anyone know if there is a specific sequence as such? I have tried pushing it in with no success.

Thanks

Hey I hope that Mike has properly assisted you, but I just wanted to let you know that I have moved this thread into General Tablet Talk since you are discussing issues with a tablet.

Hope this is okay

Default try this.....

I had exactly the same problem, I decided to use the trick you can use
on some Android phones.

From completely off (not standby) press and hold either the volume up
or volume down (can't remember which) buttons while swicthing on.

After a few seconds you will go into a hidden menu where you can do a factory reset.

Worked for me anyway...
