You can try this: Go to Settings. Under Settings, scroll down to General. Click on that. Under General, scroll down to Reset. Click on that. That will open several lines of choices. The second one is "Erase all content and settings" - however, I have not ever tried this, so it's possible you will need the previous owner's Apple ID and password to complete this step. I would suspect you will, because Apple is very serious about security. So you may need to either contact the owner and get the ID and password, or your other option, as you said, is factory reset, which may be your only way out.

If iOS 7 is installed on the device then this is a built-in security measure against theft to prevent a thief from erasing content and using as new. You will need to get in touch with the original owners.

SOURCE: My IPad is stuck with the apple logo on a black screen while resetting to factory settings. No more movement now. What to do?

Don't forget to plug in the power. And again, press home button and on / off switch, till it switches off. Then press the on / off button, till the Apple logo comes back, then release the button. It can take up to a minute, before the screen comes on.
