[How-To] Perform a Factory Reset on your Tab
Reset Galaxy Tab from Android OS
Read and follow the on screen instruction carefully.
Use Factory data reset to return your device to its factory defaults. This setting erases all data from your device, including
your Google or other email account settings, system and application data and settings, and downloaded applications. After
a reset, you’ll be prompted to set up your device the next time you turn it on.
Menu > Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset
(check the box "Back up my data", Un-check the box "Automatic Restore", this can be checked again after the reset,
but may restore the settings/data that was causing problems)
[best to test before you restore things one at a time & check to see if the problem has returned]
2. Touch Factory data reset, then follow the prompts to perform the reset.
