Here is a guide for performing a hard reset on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0)

A hard reset is a good way to fix some software related problems. This should however be one of your last resorts, there are often less intense methods to fix many of your Android problems. Try turning your phone off for a while and then restart it, or take the battery out. Sometimes the easiest solutions are the best.

Before attempting a hard reset, ensure that you have backed up all of your data beforehand. There are a number of good apps that can do this, such as Titanium Backup, Carbon Backup and Helium.

Alternatively you can use the back up and restore app ready installed on your handset, like this:

From any Home screen, select the applications icon (located in the upper right).
Select Settings.
Select Back up and reset
From the Backup & restore section, ensure the appropriate account is selected from the Backup account field then configure the following:
(Enabled is when a check mark is present.)
Back up my data:
Personal data such as WiFi passwords, Browser bookmarks, User dictionary, a list of installed Market application and other customized settings are backed up to Google's servers.
Automatic restore:
Data and settings are restored to applications utilizing the backup service upon reinstallation.

Note that if data back up is disabled, existing backups are deleted from Google's servers.

Also, disable Automatic Restore prior to performing a hard reset when attempting to determine whether a third-party app is the cause of an operating system or app issue.

To hard reset the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0)

From a home screen, select Apps (Located at the bottom when viewed in portrait or at the upper right in landscape.)
From the Apps tab, select Settings.
Select Back up and reset.
Select Factory data reset.
To reset the device select Reset device (enter password/PIN if prompted). Select Continue and then delete all.

Or

Press and hold the Power button until the Device options screen appears.
Select Power off.
Select OK.
Press and hold the Volume up button then press and hold the Power button.
When the Samsung logo appears, release all.
Select wipe data/factory reset. (Use the Volume buttons to highlight and the Power button to select.)
Select Yes -- delete all user data.
Select reboot system now.
Allow several minutes for the reboot process to complete.

There you have it. Let us know if you have any problems :)

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 I705 hard reset
Your Samsung P3100, P3110 tablet freezes or has fatal errors
If your device freezes or hangs, you may need to close programs or reset the device to regain functionality. If your device is still responsive but a
program is frozen, close the program using the task manager. If your device is frozen and unresponsive, press and hold [POWER ] for 8-10 seconds. The device will reboot automatically.
If this does not solve the problem, perform a factory data reset. In Menu mode, select Settings → Privacy → Factory data reset → Reset Tablet→ Erase everything

Two questions:
1st- If I do a Hard Reset, do I lose my current operating system?
2nd- Will I lose all Apps, or just the ones I had to install?
Also are there any other things I should beware of with a Hard Reset? I know the tablets old, at least in today's times, but I'd like to still use it to watch shows & Youtube! And I guess some simple apps!

    Thanks for any help your able to provide! :)

  1. Hard reset will not downgrade your OS.
  2. you will lose all your downloaded apps .

Hard rest will erase any music that you have downloaded to your phones storage, any contacts saved to the phone will be erased,....

Ready To Help You.

Hello
I downloaded some sort of malware. It prevents me from using my tablet.
What it does is I keep getting these google play app automatically. I dismiss it (only BACK button is shown, home and list got lost (???)) and try to get to the desktop, but 5 secs after i try to dismiss it, google play appears again and again. It does not allow me to do anything.
Already hard reset my tablet 6 times and the data does not get erased.
I'm trying to see if there is a way to hard-hard-hard erase or reset so all the malware will as well be erased. I don't care loosing all the data, as long as I can regain control over my tablet.
Please comments...
