The step by step instructions to do this can be found under “Connecting your phone to a TV set” chapter on page 109.

Restart, Force Shutdown, and Reset: If you phone got freezed or unresponsive, you can restart the Xperia ion by pressing Volume up key for about 5 seconds: whenever the phone vibrates release the key. Shutting down in hardway also can be done by pressing the Volume up (same as restart step) in 10 seconds: whenever the phone vibrates three times counts, release the keys. And to do Reset aka Factory data reset aka Master / Hard reset follows these steps: Home > Menu > Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset > Reset phone > Erase everything (if you wanna delete all the document and data like videos, photos, musics and else, you need to mark “Erase SD card checkbox).
