    Hard Reset of Android Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is similar to the original Samsung Galaxy Tab. If you can access the Operating System, it is easy to perform hard reset in the Settings. Then open up the settings app from the app drawer. From the settings section select the ‘Privacy’option. Choose the “Factory data reset” option under Privacy section. If the device is OFF, just press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons. When you encounter the Samsung logo, just release the power button. However, continue to hold the Volume Up button till the recovery screen is displayed. The menu can be navigated using the volume buttons and then select “wipe data / factory reset” button. Press on the Home button to choose the selection. Continue pressing the volume up button and then the device will go through a hard reset process.
