How to hard reset Cherry Mobile Pearl?

I usually fix my gadgets on my own. Because why would I pay someone to fix my gadget if I can do it. But if I can’t or after trying a lot of ways to fix it and I really can’t, that’s the time that I am letting somebody fix it. But this phone that I fixed is not mine. Its owner is a friend of mine.

Her problem is that when she opens her phone, she always gets this “Unfortunately your Messaging has stopped working” prompt. Not only her messaging but almost all of the apps installed on her phone that she can’t use it at all. So resetting it to its original factory setting is very hard if because she can't go to her phone settings. But the good thing is, there is another option, it is called hard reset. It is not as easy when you reset it through your phone settings, but I’m sure you can do this one.

Here’s the method I did:

  1. First, turn off your phone.
  2. Then, press the power button and volume down button together.
  3. Release it after you see the PEARL logo then wait for a few seconds.
  4. If you can see, the next screen displayed is the android picture stating below that there is no command. Do not worry.
  5. Just press the power button once. Then there it is. The Android recovery system screen will now show.
    Be careful in using the volume up and down button because the volume down button will not let you highlight or select the option above instead it will perform the highlighted option. Just follow my instructions so that you will successfully hard reset your cherry mobile pearl phone.

    And below is this eight (8) available options:

    • Reboot system now
    • Apply update from ADB
    • Apply update from SD card
    • Apply update from cache
    • Wipe data or factory reset
    • Wipe cache partition
    • Back-up user data
    • Restore user data

  6. Press the volume down until the highlighted area will the wipe data of factory reset option. If you notice, pressing the home/enter button will not work. So press the volume up button instead.
    Your phone will now perform option you selected. Then wait for a couple of minutes.
  7. After that, your phone will restart then you’re done.

This method can also be applied to another phone. I tried doing it with a cherry mobile flare phone, and it still did work.

Canon MP258 – E,0,3 Error Code Resolve

       Way back 2011, I was a college graduating student back then, I have a lot of projects and a thesis to print. I have tried bringing it to an internet café and paying them per page just to print the entire document I needed. But because they’re just too many, it was very expensive for me. So I decided to buy a printer for me to save money from printing all my projects outside. I bought a Canon MP258 printer. It is a 3 in 1 printer with scanner and photocopier. It really did help me a lot.

    Since I started using it, it works fine. I never encountered any problems or errors. But we all know that with its original ink cartridge is very costly. Although you can have your ink refilled through an injecting a refill ink to it, it is still not so practical for me.  I did save money, but it still gives me hassles ‘coz the ink you can inject inside the cartridge is not that much. And in my situation, I need to print a lot of projects. I cannot save enough time especially when I’m in a hurry. I always remove the cartridge, inject an ink again and put it back to the printer. 

    After having a lot of troubles, I decided to bring my printer to a technician to be converted. Having your printer converted can be a bit expensive you sure can save money in the future and also time. At first it was working properly. I did save time because I do not need to remove and refill the cartridge over and over again. I also did save money because I can just buy a much cheaper ink than the original one. Until, I decided to bring my printer to my parent’s house. When I arrived, the ink hose has an air inside so I just released the air and it is still working fine. But after how many days of using it, it started giving me problems.

    The first problem I entered was, when I tried printing, the paper always jams. Sometimes the paper just eats and releases a lot of paper. Even when I tried photocopying the problem still occurs. But if I use the scanner, it works fine so I got confused.

    Then there comes another problem. When I am trying to print any document or photo, it would just eat the half of the paper but won’t release it.  And on my laptop screen, a dialog box would pop-up telling me that the output tray is closed even when it is open. I checked the LED indicator of my printer, it gave me an error code E,0,3.

    These are the solutions I have tried that maybe would also help solve your printer problem.

  • Press the reset button for at least 15 to 20 seconds.
               >>> It this does not solve your problem, maybe there is something inside your                          printer.

  • Put a not so thick cardboard on the paper tray and let you printer eat and release. The cardboard can help releasing or pushing the thing inside if there is.
               >>> I did this one, and it helped resolve the paper jam problem of my printer.

  • If your printer in on a converted ink system (CIS), check your ink hose and adjust it a bit because maybe it is touching the sensor of the printer of your printer.
                >>> This one is the reason why I always got a closed output tray problem.
