    Assuming the iPad is not jailbroken, you would go to general > reset > erase all content and settings, but even that is not a full restore. You can't truly fully restore an iPad without iTunes and since you MUST connect it to iTunes at some stage anyway, you are just as well using iTunes to restore the iPad by pressing the big "restore" button. That's what it's for!

    You need to give us more details. Tell us the error code / message which iTunes will show if it fails. This will help diagnose the problem.
    Are you jailbroken?
