Micromax A115 Canvas 3D Hard Reset to Factory Settings

This 1.2 GHz processor smartphone is the 3D model from Micromax that gathered close to 5 out of 5 stars from its customer reviews. Being such a popular and highly appreciated device, it’s no wonder there are so many articles written about it. However, we noticed that there are not so many clear guides on how to hard reset the Micromax A115 Canvas 3D, which is the reason why we came up with our article for today.

To begin with the most important piece of information, a master or factory reset is a simple procedure that will restore all settings to initial mode. This means that the software will also be restored to default, and you will have all files erased from the internal memory. You won’t have to worry about anything saved on the SIM card, but we highly recommend creating a backup using Cloud options or another device if you prefer.

The 3D capacitive touchscreen coming with 16M colors measures 5 inches and comes with multitouch. It is one of the coolest screens to have on a simple smartphone, which is definitely something that makes it attractive for gamers. Having the PowerVR SGX531u as its GPU, as well as a chipset type Mediatek MT6577T, this is a strong phone to use for entertainment purposes.

It might not come with the best cameras – only a 5 MP one on the back and its VGA frontal one, but it has a lot more to offer than that. Coming with a BT version 4.0, microUSB v2.0, Wi-Fi and A-GPS, the device also has 4GB storage and lets users store more data on a microSD card. Available in white, as well as black, the Micromax 3D phone is also equipped with a long-lasting 2000 mAh battery.


As it has been seen on similar versions of the Canvas mobile phones from Micromax, it is fairly easy to perform a hard reset. However, one thing that most devices from this brand have in common is that they tend to be restored using the exterior buttons more than the menu. This being said, you can easily initiate such a procedure on your A115 by using one of these methods.

  1. Turn the phone off and recharge it.
  2. Hold Volume Keys, and then press Power.
  3. Holding all three buttons, wait for the menu.
  4. Press Volume Up to choose Recovery Mode.
  5. Wait for the Android logo and read the menu.
  6. Press Power to select Recovery and use Volume keys to scroll.
  7. Select Wipe Data with Volume Down and confirm it with Power.

After doing this, the reboot should automatically begin. If anything else must be done, you will see further instructions appearing on the display. In some cases, you will have to press the Power key one more time in order to confirm the option called Reboot System Now.

If you ever want to use a code in order to do the reset, you can take advantage of the many codes that can be used on the Micromax A115. Fortunately enough, you can test all your hardware and see what doesn’t work by using *#*#3646633#*#*. This can be a useful thing to do before resetting the phone, and you should then follow these steps:

  1. Charge the phone to 70% and turn it on.
  2. Open the Dial Pad and enter the code.
  3. The Factory Mode code is *#987#.
  4. Follow all additional instructions as indicated.
