try pressing home button and Switch button Simultaniously for 20 seconds. Apple logo will come and thats it.

after that you have to unlocked the screen by switching on the right upper button that sits beside the screen, then you have to turn off the voice over by double touch on screen for setting option under "General" then "Accessibility"
