Reset To Factory Settings

I just bought a ipad on ebay and I want to reset the ipad to factory settings just like you just opened from the brand new box. Can I delete the whole thing and reload the OS?

Reset Passcode Without Having To Restore The Factory Settings?
My little brother has locked himself out of his ipad. Although I am aware we can restore the factory settings he would very much like to save his photos.

The ipad has never been synced or backed up.

Reset It To Factory Settings Without Knowing Passcode?
We laid off an employee but don't have his passcode to reset the ipad to it's factory settings.Is there anyway I can do this? I tried following the directions I found:

If you dont know the passcode to go into the ipad and reset it, you simply need to connect the iPad to iTunes.

Connect your iPad to the USB port on your computer, open iTunes and on the left side of the panel will appear a category for Devices... select the iPad. The summary window will have the information on the iPad and below that the choice for Restore. Select Restore, and you will have to do some confirming usually, and the system will go to work restoring the iPad to the factory settings.

Reset IPad 1 Back To Factory Settings?
I never use my iPad and have decided to sell it. I was wondering what is the best way to reset it to the factory settings? Thru iTunes or just straight from the iPad itself?

Network Reset Not Resetting To Factory Settings
I had to reset my wireless router and I know all the settings are correct including the password. My iPad recognizes this router but will not accept the password.

So I went to Settings>General>Network and touched the command to reset the network back to factory specs. I tried this twice but the network will not go away so that I can reenter the network

Reset It Back To The Factory Settings To Sync It With My Itunes
I'm buying a used one and just wanted to make sure that I will need to reset it back to the factory settings to sync it with my itunes like an ipod. Which means that I won't be able to use any apps that are on it from the past user, correct? He also said that I could use the rest of the month of 3G that he had. Can I do that without his password and will I be able to prepay using that sim card on my own account in the future?

Factory Reset Option ?
I recently bought an ipad that was a demo in a store. I didn't think it would be a problem because I would just factory reset it to the normal setting. However, there is no factory reset option for me to chose. I am going through the settings - general - and scrolling to the bottom but there is not a reset option. Also... I downloaded new apps and I cannot get them to delete by holding them for ten seconds.... I currently own an Ipod touch which I thought would be similar but apparently not

Turns To Factory Reset After Restart?
Here is the scenario...

1.) The iPad will work perfectly for several days.
2.) Then it will no longer detect wifi networks at all. It simply says "No networks found". (This is not an issue with the wifi network itself)
3.) Power the iPad off and then back on normally.
4.) The iPad has now been factory reset and must be completely setup again.

Nothing atypical is on the iPad as far as applications going. And this scenario has happened multiple times.

My IPad Has Factory Reset Twice In 2 Days
Is it possible using only by holding down a combination of the external buttons or is it a fault?

I believe the kids because it happened this morning whilst only the youngest (2) was only able to touch it. It has a passcode which she doen't know (or comprehend, if it's not Peppa Pig she isn't interested!) so I assume she was just touching the the top and side (volume) buttons, maybe the 'Home' button also, but definitely hadn't turned it 'on' and able to go into the settings.

Unable To Reset Back To Factory Setting
Two days ago, I turned on my iPad to play a little GodFinger. I found that the "Connect to laptop" starting screen was on. I figured this was some way Apple had of forcing customers to take an update for security reasons or some such. Imagine when I found out that this was a spontaneous hard factory reset.I have to take a sync from 6 weeks ago and reset from there. I'm furious.I cannot believe that I'm alone with this symptom. Has anyone else suffered this?

Restoring IPad 2 To Factory Settings?
i am having the new iPad delivered tomorrow and would like some advice on restoring my iPad 2 to factory settings as im passing it on to a relative.

I will back up the ipad2 to my iTunes so I can sync my new one in iTunes but would it be best if I connected the iPad2 to a PC which has iTunes on it and do the factory restore on there.

ITunes Is Telling To Restore To Factory Settings?
I just updated iTunes today. I tried syncing my iPad2 (32GB) and I was told that iTunes does not recognize my iPad and that it needs to be restored to factory settings. I've tried plugging it in with the cable and syncing it wirelessly and it's not working. I've turned it on and off again and restarted it and tried different USB ports and nothings working. It does sync with my iPhone, but no luck with the iPad. I would hate to lose everything on my iPad. When I tried plugging in my iPad to my computer, the camera roll did show up on autoplay (windows vista) so it does recognize my iPad. .

How To Recover Purchased Apps After Restore Factory Settings?
I'm a low level IT guy here at my office. My boss bought an iPad and never synced it with iTunes for regular backups.

Apparently one of his kids locked the iPad out to where it required him to authenticate with iTunes. He gave it to me and after several attempts I just gave up and nuked the iPad back to factory settings in Recovery Mode.

What is the most efficient way to get the applications purchased from the iPad back onto the iPad? ITunes seems to be downloading and restoring the iTunes purchased content but not the iPad purchased content.

Restored Factory Settings - ITunes Will Not Read IPad 2 Now
I bought Ipad 2 (16 GB), downloaded latest version of itunes and connected the ipad to my laptop a week ago. It worked fine, itunes detected it, I registered at app store (but didn't register the ipad yet). Today, I restored factory settings on Ipad 2 and tried to connect it to a different laptop (don't have access to the first laptop anymore). I again downloaded the new version of itunes and then connected it. Nothing is happening.

The ipad turns on for a second so I can see the image of white usb chord and itunes symbol. but itunes on my laptop doesn't read it. Since I restored factory settings, the Ipad now gives only that screen of white usb chord to be plugged in the itunes symbol whether it is connected to the laptop or not. I even gave the current laptop authorization from itunes ("authorize this computer"). I'm using Windows 7

This, of course, means I lose all my saved wifi passwords ... a royal pain in the backside.
