Download and install BlackBerry Desktop Software  from http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/desktop/

Push and hold down the Power Button until the unit Force Powers Off.

While Desktop Software is open on your computer and the PlayBook Powered Off, Connect the PlayBook to your computer.

You should see an error screen from Desktop Software pop up that has the options to Retry, Update, or Cancel.

QUICKLY choose the "Update" option.

This will erase all the information off of your PlayBook and Re-Write the Software back onto it. Once it's complete the PlayBook can go back through the setup wizard.

 

Note:  It is possible to do a security wipe of the Playbook and then start the setup wizard again but some things are lost during the wipe like sample wallpapers and videos.  The software reload above is the recommended method.
