We all need a restart now and then. Even tablets. If your Amazon Fire is having intermittent errors and nothing you do is working or if you want to gift it to a friend or small cousin, then you’ll need to reset your tablet.
In this post, you’ll learn how to factory reset an Amazon Fire tablet.
Reset Amazon Fire Tablet – step-by-step
Reset Amazon Fire Tablet in Settings
The easiest way to reset an Amazon Fire Tablet is to do so through Settings. Here’s how.
Leave microSD out
The MicroSD card won’t be any part of this process, you can save any important document there and eject the expandable memory from the tablet.
To make sure not to lose any important information back it up.
Go to Settings, then Device Options, and select Backup & Restore.
Swipe down twice from the top of the screen and tap Settings. Then go to Device Options and select Reset to Factory Defaults.
You’ll see a progress bar at the beginning, just wait for it to complete. It’ll take some time
Factory Reset Amazon Fire tablet from Recovery Mode
If your device is too slow to even get to Settings, then you’ll need to do a factory reset from the Recovery Mode.
This is a little harder but is the only option if your Amazon Fire is frozen.
Power off the device.
Know your model
You’ll need to press a button combination that will change depending the Amazon Model:
Kindle Fire 3rd Generation, Fire 4th Generation, and Fire HD 10 (7th Generation) devices: Press and hold the “power” and “volume up” buttons simultaneously.
Release the buttons immediately after a logo appears on the screen.
For all other devices: Press and hold the “power” and “volume down” buttons simultaneously. Release the buttons after five seconds.
Once you’re in the Recovery Mode navigate with the volume up and down buttons
Select Wipe data/factory reset with the power button.
And those are the two methods to reset. Hopefully, those steps will have solved any issues you are having with your device!
