Hi. Do the following to hard reset your daughter's Vodafone Smart Tab 10

  1. Power it off
  2. Press and hold both the Power and the Volume Up keys at the same time for 3-5 seconds
  3. And the release the Power but continue to hold down the Volume Up key until the Smart Tab 10 boots into the Android System recovery mode
  4. Now scroll down to 'Wipe data/factory reset" using the Volume Down key - short press the Power key to confirm selection.
  5. Scroll to 'Yes---delete all user data" and short press Power to confirm
  6. Wait for the wiping to complete and then short press the Power key to restart the Vodafone Smart Tab 10 for a fresh setup.

Please follow me here - Otherwise, the option you have to choose is 'Recovery Mode' (use the Vol down to scroll and select with the Vol Up)

Greetings.  I followed the above instructions and went for "recovery mode".  On start up, there appeared to be no change.  The issue is I am trying to get into device settings and even though I insert the correct password, it will not accept this.  Please assist...
