This is why our article will show you how to do a hard reset on the LG Optimus L5 E610.
In order to keep your smartphone functional at all times, you’ll want to make sure that it’s never attacked by a virus. However, it is sometimes hard to control such things at all times. This is why, whenever your phone stops working properly, you can give it a helping hand by performing a master reset procedure. This one will remove all viruses and infected user files while it’s going to restore the LG Optimus back to factory soft.

How to Restore the LG Optimus L5
One of the easiest ways to restore this LG smartphone to original settings is to use the LG Mobile Support tool. This one can be downloaded from the internet in just a few seconds, and it has the same effect as most other methods would do. You should make a backup before getting started with this one, though, as it will erase all user data. Once you’ve installed the tool, it will guide you through all the steps and show you exactly how to do the master reset.
If you can’t install the tool, it crushes too often or you simply didn’t get any results using this method, we recommend reading further. We have two main options in terms of resetting this device, and one of them uses the hard reset buttons while the other one is perfect for minor issues. The latter uses the phone’s menu, so you will need a functional and responsive keyboard.
- Go to the Menu and select Settings.
- Scroll down and select Backup & Reset.
- Choose Factory Data Reset and read the info.
- Tap Reset Device, and then press Delete All.
The hard reset keys option can also be used to get the same results. Before using this one, though, we recommend charging the device to 100% and removing all cables. You should then switch the phone off, remove and reinsert the battery.
Leave it for a minute or two and follow the instructions below:
- Press Volume- and Power and wait for the phone to light up.
- Release keys when it does that and Press the Home key for 2 seconds.
- The device will turn on, and it will then perform the reset by itself.
- Do no interrupt the operation and wait for it to restart.
