How do I remove the settings lock on this RCA RCT6272W23 tablet?
I was given a tablet and it is locked, it says 'Settings Lock' and will not accept any password I have tried, I have done a factory reset at least 10 times, each time no success! First thing it asks for a language selection, ok, no problem! once I press ok the screen changes to the Wi-fi setup, and I see my router on the list for nearly a half second before the settings lock screen pops up and effectively stops my progress!
The password box seems to have at least 50 possible characters, no hint, no access to anything useful, a tease of a 'change password' box that still requires the old password....if this feature persists after factory reset, then the password must be a standard 'factory' one, but so far all my attempts with common passwords has returned nothing! I realize this is not a top of the line model, but at this point I need it unlocked on principle alone!!!!
Has anyone else had this issue? Even on a variation of this model? Besides obvious solutions such as a new fancy paperweight or using it as a skeet target, finding/cracking the password on this incredibly frustrating piece of s*** is my goal, and I ask for new ideas and directions from anyone and everyone!!!!
I thank you in advance, please don't let this little $40 rat turd steal hours of your life from you, as it has done to me....hours I will never get back, making the completion of this project a moral imperative!! remember , RCA RCT6272W23--
I give it 2 thumbs down....
Please help me solve this issue! Any ideas would be appreciated, I thank you!
