how to fix setup wizard has stopped after factory reset rca viking pro tablet

Encountering the "Setup Wizard has stopped" error after a factory reset on an RCA Viking Pro tablet can be frustrating, but there are several steps you can take to resolve this issue. This error typically occurs due to a software glitch or a corrupted setup process. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you fix it:

Before you begin:
* Charge your tablet: Ensure that your tablet has sufficient battery power before attempting any troubleshooting.
* Backup your data: If possible, backup any important data on your tablet to avoid losing it during the troubleshooting process.

Step 1: Restart Your Tablet in Safe Mode
Safe Mode allows you to boot your device with only essential system apps, helping you identify if a third-party app is causing the issue.
1. Press and hold the power button on your RCA Viking Pro tablet until the power menu appears.
2. Tap and hold the "Power Off" option on the screen until the "Reboot to safe mode" prompt appears.
3. Tap "OK" to reboot the tablet in Safe Mode.
If the error message does not appear in Safe Mode, it indicates that a third-party app is likely causing the issue. Uninstall recently installed apps or those known to cause problems.
Step 2: Clear Cache and Data for Setup Wizard
Clearing the cache and data for the Setup Wizard app can resolve issues related to its functionality.
1. Go to "Settings" on your tablet.
2. Scroll down and select "Apps" or "Application Manager."
3. Swipe right to view the "All" apps.
4. Scroll down and locate "Setup Wizard" in the list of apps.
5. Tap on "Setup Wizard."
6. Select "Storage."
7. Tap "Clear Cache" and "Clear Data."
8. Restart your tablet.
Step 3: Perform a Soft Reset
A soft reset can help resolve temporary software glitches.
1. Press and hold the power button on your tablet for about 10 seconds.
2. Release the power button when the RCA logo appears.
3. Allow the tablet to restart.
Step 4: Perform a Factory Reset (If Necessary)
If the error persists, you may need to perform a factory reset again, as the initial factory reset may not have been completed successfully.
1. Power off your tablet completely.
2. Press and hold the volume up button and the power button simultaneously.
3. Release both buttons when the RCA logo appears.
4. Use the volume buttons to navigate to "Wipe data/factory reset" and use the power button to select it.
5. Confirm the reset by selecting "Yes."
6. Once the reset is complete, choose "Reboot system now."
Step 5: Update the Firmware (Optional)
If none of the above steps resolves the issue, consider updating the firmware on your tablet to the latest available version. RCA periodically releases firmware updates that may include bug fixes and improvements.
1. Connect your tablet to Wi-Fi.
2. Go to "Settings."
3. Scroll down and select "About tablet."
4. Choose "Software updates" or "System updates."
5. If an update is available, follow the on-screen instructions to download and install it.
Step 6: Contact RCA Support (If the Issue Persists)
If you have followed all the above steps and still encounter the "Setup Wizard has stopped" error, it may indicate a more complex software or hardware issue. In this case, it's advisable to contact RCA's customer support or seek assistance from a qualified technician for further diagnosis and potential repair.

Remember that performing a factory reset will erase all data on your tablet, so be sure to back up any important information before proceeding. Additionally, the steps and options mentioned above may vary slightly depending on your tablet's specific model and Android version. Always refer to your device's user manual or RCA's support resources for model-specific guidance.
