hp 8 g2 tablet - factory reset

Hi Try this

 

Resetting an HP 7 Plus, HP 7.1, or HP 8 Tablet

Use the steps in this section to reset an HP 7 Plus, HP 7.1, or HP 8 tablet.
  1. With the tablet powered off, press and hold the volume up (+) button and power button at the same time.
  2. When the Android system recovery menu displays, use the volume down (-) button to highlight Wipe data/factory reset.
    Figure : Wipe data/factory reset
    Wipe data/factory reset highlighted in Android system recovery menu
  3. Press the power button to select.
  4. The screen displays Confirm wipe of all user data? THIS CAN NOT BE UNDONE. Use the volume down (-) button to highlight Yes -- delete all user data.
    Figure : Confirm wipe of all user data
    Confirm wipe of all user data
  5. Press the power button to confirm and begin the reset.
  6. A recovery system screen shows the reset process. Wait for the reset process to complete.
  7. When the screen displays the message Data wipe complete, highlight reboot system now, and then press the power button to select.
    Figure : Reboot system now
    Reboot system now
    Wait for the tablet to reboot.
  8. The factory reset is complete. Set up the tablet by following the steps in the HP support document Setting Up Your HP Tablet.
Hope this helps.

Does the tablet work at all?

 

Hardware failures are hard to fix from this side of your monitor... You need to contact HP directly.

Have you had any luck asking about resetting your HP tablet?  

Like you, Ive tried the reset instruction as often as you did and cant get to the Reset section at all. All it does every time is to open the tablet - as usual.
