Power Up in Safe Mode - LG G Pad™ LTE 7.0 / 10.1

Safe Mode puts your phone in a diagnostic state (returned to default settings) so you can determine if a third-party app is causing your device to freeze, reset or run slow.

An alternate method is available if the device can be powered on and is responsive.

  1. Ensure the device is powered off.
    1. To power off, press and hold the Power button (located on the top-right edge with the charging port facing up) until the Tablet options prompt appears then release.
    2. From the Tablet options prompt, tap Power off.
    3. From the Tablet will power off prompt, tap OK to confirm.
      Note Allow several seconds for the device to power off.
  2. Press and hold the Power button until the LG logo appears on screen then release.
    Note Allow several seconds for the logo to appear.
  3. With LG logo still on screen, press and hold the Volume down button.
  4. Continue to hold the Volume down button until "Safe mode" appears in the lower-left of the unlock screen then release.
    Note This may take up to 30 seconds.
  5. With Safe Mode enabled, test device and app functionality.
