Tablet is Permanently locked

Sep 25, 2018
I bought a RCA Voyager3 tablet from a guy on the street. It didn't have the box or any activation code or disa number. So just trying numbers it permanently locked the tablet. Am I screwed? Or can I do anything to be able use my tablet?
You might be lucky and find it wasn't stolen because if you do make it work, it might be linked to the real owner's account.

Press and hold the Volume Down button then power up the tablet. You may see an offer of making a Factory Reset and you need to press the Volume Down button seven times to get to that option and the Volume Up button to accept it. If that doesn;t work, I'm afraid to say you bought an expensive brick.
