Screen Does Not Respond to Touch ¶

Kurio Will Not Connect to WiFi ¶ 

Kurio does not connect to the Internet or App Store due to no WiFi connectivity.

WiFi is Not Enabled ¶ 

The Kurio’s WiFi connectivity may be turned off. From the Parental Area, press the Settings icon and go to the section named “All Android Settings.” Tap “WiFi.” If WiFi is turned off, turn it on. Tap on the WiFi network you wish to connect to and type in the WiFi network password, if necessary.

Modem/Router May Have Issues ¶ 

If you still cannot connect to your network, your modem and/or router may be at fault. Try turning off your Kurio and your modem and router for 30 seconds. Then turn the devices back on and try to connect the Kurio to the WiFi network again.

User Cannot Unlock Device ¶ 

Kurio says entered password was incorrect.

Password Was Forgotten ¶ 

If you forget your Kurio log-in password, you will not be able to get past the lock screen. The only solution is to perform a factory reset. Performing a factory reset will erase everything on the Kurio and return it to exactly how it was when you took it out of the box. To perform a factory reset, unplug the Kurio and turn it off by holding the power button for 5 seconds until the screen displays “Power Off, Shutting Down…” Once the device is off, press and hold the volume down button and power button at the same time until the screen lights up with “KD Interactive.” Release the power button, but continue to hold the volume down button until the “DROIDBOOT” screen appears. Then, navigate to the “RECOVERY” option and select it by pressing the power button. This will prompt a new menu, from here select “Wipe Data / Factory Reset.” Your Kurio will go through a long restart phase and then welcome you to your new Kurio.
