Just did the 3 button reset and it said to hold it for 6 six seconds to perform the full erase. It restarted and the screen was blank except the blinking HP logo in the center of the screen. This will sit in that mode for about 3 minutes and you will see the default view which asks you what language you want to set up the tablet in.
I pressed/held the power button first, then press/held the volume button next, and finally pressed/held the center button until the prompt came up. My mistake the first few times of see this was releasing the button to see what the message was and had to start all over again. Needless to say, keep your fingers on the buttons until it reboots.
I hope this helps others.
