Pixel C is booting into waiting for fastboot command

Dear all,

I try to reset my google tablet Pixel C to the factory settings because I forgot my screen code.

I manage with the power on/off button and the sound up/down pushing for several seconds to manage to arrive to the screen which allow to go to Reboot into Android Recovery.

Once I go to this option I have the "No command" android screen.

I manage to escape this scree by pressing again the "up" button and the "On" one, but then I get this "Waiting for fastboot command...."

And I'm stuck here. Completely blocked.

My tablet is:

Google Smaug


BOOTLOADER VERSION: Google_Smaug.7900.27.0

Loock State: Locked

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

You will need to get the phone out of fastboot mode.

To do this you will need to first hold the power + volume down buttons and maybe including volume up for 15 seconds to hard shut off the tablet.

The no command android screen was implemented in some recovery menus to hide the recovery menu from the user. You need to sometimes press and hold a combination of buttons to toggle the recovery menu from that screen.

When the tablet says “waiting for reboot command”, I decided to press the power button and the UP on the volume instead of pressing down. That managed to reset it and as of now, it is working again.
