Question How to By Pass Set Up Wizard?

May 28, 2019
I did a factory reset on my NEXTBOOK ARES 8A tablet..model number NX16A8116K PK And now at the start up wizard.. it won't let me press or select NEXT to continue set up.. No matter how you flip the tablet. It lets you set up Wi-Fi but you cant go past that. "Next" doesn't work. What do I do?
If you did the reset to keep whatever you had on the tablet may be part of the problem. That version will not remove any issues. You may well have to "Hard Reset" the device to resolve it. I will include instructions on that below. If this doesn't allow you to resolve it, then I would ask what is the point it is getting stuck at. What is the option before the next?

NOTE: Doing this will clear 'all' the data on your tablet, so it is suggested you not choose this option unless you have to, or aren't worried about losing anything on the device.

Be sure you back up any data you want to keep, to a computer or cloud account, before doing the reset.

To "Hard Reset" the tablet...

1. Make sure that the tablet is actually powered off.

2. Remove your SD card, if there is one in the device.

3. Press the "Power" and the "Volume Up" buttons, together, until you see the start-up logo on the screen.

4. Once you can see the logo, release the buttons and allow the device to enter the "System Recovery Mode".

5. Next use "Volume Down" button to get to the "wipe data/factory reset" option.

6. When in recovery mode the "Volume Up" and "Volume Down" buttons are how to can navigate and highlight what option you need.

7. Once you have selected the "wipe data/factory reset", press the "Power" button to select that option.

8. On the following screen, repeatedly press the "Volume Down" button until the "Yes - delete all user data" option is what is selected.

9. Then press the "Power" button to hard reset the tablet.

10. If you took your SD card out in step 2, when the device is up and running again, reinsert the SD card.
