The steps you’ll need to take to reset the Coby Kyros MID 7012 are quite simple. A wipe like this is helpful in the event that you decide to sell your device. In this case, performing such a wipe will ensure that no one can access any of the personal information you’ve left on the device. This process is also quite useful if you’ve changed a lot of settings on your device and would simply like to have it restored to the way it was when you purchased it. In the event of a forgotten password, this process will be the only way you’ll be able to use your device again.
Of course, the hard reset is often used as a troubleshooting option. Use this only if other methods have not worked to restore your device to its full functionality. Please understand that this will erase any and all personal data that you have not backed up prior to the reset.
1. Turn the tablet off.
2. Hold the back and power buttons simultaneously. The Coby logo will appear, and then a menu.
3. Release your hold on the power and back button.
4. Use the Volume + and Volume – buttons to navigate to “Wipe data/Factory Reset”.
5. Use the back button to select this option. Your reset will begin.
