General chit-chat on the Linx 7

Locked out

Postby ChrisCEdwards » May 18th, 2016, 9:08 am

I bought my Linx7 yesterday, and on setting up left the password blank at initial opening. After trying to go through the various activations /set up on the tablet and giving various passwords I shut it down. On trying to open the tablet later it stated the tablet was offline and to enter the last password used. I could not remember which this was, so tried a variety that had used but am still locked out. So I have a new tablet that I cannot get into. How can I get past this? Is there some sort of reboot I can use to allow me access.?
