How do I restore the default settings on my Infocast?

 

• There may be times when your custom settings need to be completely discarded, so you can start over from scratch using the factory settings. This is called Restore Factory Settings.


CAUTION: If you restore factory settings, all files in the internal memory will be erased.
NOTE: Restoring factory settings will not deactivate your Infocast. To deactivate it, log on to your chumby account, click My Dashboard, select your Infocast, then click delete.

 

To restore default settings:

1. Turn off your Infocast, then press and hold a finger to the screen for 5 seconds. The Special options menu opens.
2. Tap Restore factory settings. A message asks if you want to restore settings.
3. Tap OK to continue the process, or tap CANCEL to stop it.
4. If you tapped OK, follow the on-screen prompts until the process is complete. You’ll have to complete the initial setup again. Refer to 'How do I setup my Infocast?' for instructions on setting up the Infocast.
