Hi my grandson has put a pin code on tablet tried to reset by holding power key and volume button but device won't turn on please help

I don't know what tablet it is but on mine there is a tiny hole that I can push a needle in to reset it. Marked as microphone on mine just to confuse things. Yours may be different but I mean tiny, a paper clip is too thick.

tried that and still no joy

OK, it was worth a try, works on my one. If you give details of the tablet someone may be able to help but very little to go on at present.

If it won't turn on it suggests the battery is flat. Charge overnight and try again. The pin code is not needed until device is running.

Is it 'ded' or on but wont proceed beyond logo?

There is a software that is installed into a PC from whence to no/s also downloaded is reinstalled.Its call free so worth ago.

The software to reinstall is 'live suite 3' just browse for it comes with instructions to print out how to sheet.

The O/S you need just browse for it.

Plenty of comment on the Android pages too.

More information thoughts.

Try this

With the device 'off' hold the volume control down on the + side,while holding down press on down for the long start.

If the device works it should boot to the restore mode.

Do give 'Live Suite' a try

No switch on, no get to app store.
