SOURCE: looking to reset to original factory settings

when a problem arises on your Canon 350d, Canon tech support will advise you to first reset your camera...set the mode to P and then go to menu, setup tools 2, clear settings..
the second option is to update your firmware by visiting the canon website, you can access this by going to google and searching for 350d firmware...
the third option will be to send your camera for service in Borehamwood UK...
hope this helps.

Reset factory setting

Although Nikon cameras can be set back to the factory settings in several steps, I can't find anything in the Canon manuals, that says how to reset the camera or to put it back in the factory settings.
Perhaps you did change the firmware once. Most of the time there is a descriptions, how to do that and what to do if things go wrong. This could be something to reset the camera.

I have sony DSC-W190,i want correct menu setting ,bcos if i take a picture its not clear,i think may be menu setting changed,idnt any idea about menu setting pls help.....


If the Menu settings in the camera is changed, then I suggest you to reset the Camera back to factory default. Initializing the Camera back to factory default will set all the settings in the Camera back to factory default.
To initialize the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.
You can also try a manual reset;

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

The blurry image capturing can also adjusted by changing the ISO Settings or the Scene Selection modes.

-Use the left or right arrow keys to select the Settings menu (its icon looks like a wrench and hammer)

Fuzzy pictures

It's possible that some of the settings are set improperly on the camera. Try resetting the camera back to factory default settings and see if this makes any difference. To reset the camera - have the camera in shooting mode - go to Menu - left arrow to RESET - press Ok - highlight Yes and press Ok. This will set the camera back to factory settings. Try to take some images and see if they are still fuzzy.

Looking to reset to original factory settings

On the camera's menu system, under Setup2, look for the option titled "Clear Settings". When selected, you can either clear just the Custom Settings, or you can clear all camera settings, which restores it to the factory defaults.

E520, fn button can not be set to "face detect", and can not reset to factory settings

In Auto mode this is true. If you turn the camera dial to P you will be able to reset the camera to factory settings and set the fN button to be face detect. In Auto the camera is already using the factory default settings for the camera.

Default settings

Depending on the model, there will be a Menu - browse the settings and you'll find a RESET SETTINGS or DEFAULT TO FACTORY, usually in the SETUP section.
