Verizon Ellipsis® 10 HD - Power Up in Safe Mode

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

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

  1. With the device powered off, press and hold the Power/Lock button until the Ellipsis screen appears then release.
