Pendo pad 7" won't go into hard reset

It should have a physical volume button somewhere on the side of the tablet.

How to reset a Pendo Pad to factory default settings (aka "Hard Reset")...

NOTE: This is really something that only should be used as a last resort as it will clear out all personal information on the device.

1. Make sure the tablet is off, then take out the battery. Leave it out for a minute and then put it back in.

Note: If the battery is not easily removed (they aren't on some devices) then be sure that the device is completely out of power and leave it that way for a good 10 minutes before trying the information below.

2. Hold the "Volume Down" button and then press and release the "Power" button.
3. Wait until the the menu appears showing "Fastbook", "Recovery", "Clear Storage", and "Simlock".
4. Using the volume buttons, move to select "Clear Storage".
5. Now press and release the "Power" button and let the tablet restart.
6. You should now see two option to choose from. "Volume Up" for YES and "Volume Down" for NO.
7. If you choose YES, all the data will on your tablet will be deleted, including any apps you have installed.
8. The device will now boot with its original factory installed data.

If your device somehow doesn't have a volume button, then you need to contact the manufacturer to see what is wrong with it and how to resolve the problem.
