Motorola Xoom Lock Up

I purchased a Motorola Xoom for my wife and she loves it but today she had an issue where the Xoom was locked up.
Here is how to recover your Xoom from this situation by performing a Forced Reboot.


In the unlikely event that your device becomes unresponsive, try a forced reboot: Press and hold both Power/Lock button and the up-volume key for three seconds.
To reset your tablet to factory settings and erase all the data on your device, from the home screen Apps >Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset.
Warning: All data on your tablet will be deleted.
Motorola XOOM won’t turn on or display stops responding
  • Ensure that your Motorola XOOM is fully charged before troubleshooting. Connect the power adapter to the Motorola XOOM and a working outlet.When the device is powered off and the battery is charging, the charging indicator lights white until 100%, and turns green when it is 100% charged.. Let the Motorola XOOM charge for at least 20 minutes before trying to power on.
  • In the unlikely event that your display stops responding, try restarting your Motorola XOOM by pressing and holding the up volume button and pressing the power button until the Motorola XOOM restarts. If the screen is still unresponsive, ensure you have removed the shipping screen-protector and any third-party screen protectors and retry.
For all other unusual Motorola XOOM behavior
Power cycle your Motorola XOOM by pressing and holding the power button until you are prompted to shut down.  Once fully powered off, press and hold the power button to power the Motorola XOOM back up.
How do I prevent my device from changing orientation?
Lock the screen orientation by touching the bottom right corner, touching the triangle, then touching “Lock screen orientation.”
