First, swipe to the second page of your child's Home screen, then touch the Parents icon to enter Parent Settings.

Select "About" from the Device Settings menu.
Touch "Reset Your Device", then touch the "Reset" button on the next screen.
A screen will show the progress. The reset may take more than 10 minutes to complete. The device will restart once the reset finishes. You will see a black screen for a few seconds. When the device turns back on, the reset process is complete.
First, turn off the unit by holding down the power button for 3 seconds, and then touch the on-screen "Power off" icon.
Once the system is off, press and hold the POWER button and VOLUME DOWN (minus) button at the same time. When the white VTech screen appears, release only the POWER button. Continue pressing the VOLUME DOWN button until you see the Factory Reset screen.
If the Factory Reset screen does not appear, repeat the steps above. You may need to repeat these steps multiple times.

Once you see the Factory Reset screen, release the VOLUME DOWN button. If your power source is unplugged, plug it in to the device. Then, touch "Reset" to continue.
Do not turn off the device or disconnect the power source during the reset process.
