RESTORING THE ACER LIQUID GLOW
As previously suggested, we’d like to come back to the easiest way to get rid of your problems. Therefore, if your phone is continuously rebooting, it doesn’t vibrate or ring when you get a phone call, forgets to ring the alarm when it was meant to, won’t make phone calls or it simply freezes every now and again, this solution might be the best one to choose.
In order to start with the soft reboot version, you should first press the Power button with the phone turned on. Hold the key for about 10 seconds, until you notice that the device switched off. Once this is done, please charge the device until it’s full, and then remove all cables. Open the tray on the back and take both the memory card and the battery out. Reinsert them after a minute or two and switch the Acer back on.
If the same problems keep on being present or they come back after a couple of hours/days, you should consider the master restore solution. It can be performed after unfreezing the device, so you can have access to the main menu. Do the following for the reboot:
- From the settings folder, go to Backup & Reset.
- Choose Factory Data Reset and click on Reset Phone.
- Go for Erase everything and wait until formatting is complete.
