Factory reset?? can i get it to be "out of the box" every again
I have had this camera for a long time, and changed alot of the
settings, dont know how but now every video i record is only a small
image (with a massive black boarder) i have a suspicion the image on my
PC/TV is proptionate to the size of the LCD screen on the camera
had a look in the manual and theres nothing there that points me to "reset"
does anyone have any idea? your help will be greatly apreciated!

Here are two suggestions and remember to backup if necessary. T-Mobile Sidekick 4G Factory data reset: 1. On the main home screen, select menu 2. Select Settings, then Privacy 3. Select Factory data reset 4. Select Reset phone 5. Enter the password if prompted, then confirm by selecting Erase everything (Note: If a Password was never set, it may be your last digits of the phone number or zero's)
T-Mobile Sidekick 4G Hard reset, this may help if the phone experience some hang or frozen on some applications:
1. Turn the phone's power off. Take the battery out from the device, wait a couple of seconds and reinsert it back again. 2. Now, Hold the Volume Down button 3. Then press and hold the Power button until the device turns on 4. A menu will show up like: Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock 5. Just select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button 6. Then press and release the Power button 7. Select Volume Up if YES and Volume Down for NO
Once the reset process is complete, the phone will then reboot to its factory fresh state settings. Any data including third-party applications previously stored from the HTC Sensation already wiped or deleted.
After trying the remove-and-reattach-battery exercise, I would suggest you go to the menu and find the setting for initial setup. Select that - which may reset the system. If not.. then try going to the clock and change the date/time settings, turn the camera off, remove-and-reattach the battery. Re-power the camera, go back and change date/time setting to what's current. And try to eject the tape. On one of our analog video cameras it seems like there was a tiny little hole someplace on the side of the camera that you could use a tiny small thing like a toothpick to press in there to accomplish a Reset. (It will have tiny raised letters saying "Reset" right beside the little reset hole.)
I wonder if this means you have to re-initialize the camera.
This changes everything back to the original shipping condition. It does not erase the owner id setting or the clock setting.
To do this Set [Camera Functions]>>[other functions2]>>[Initial set]>> [yes].
Initializing will take some time and [COMPLETED] is shown with some beeps.
This is taken from my manual.
I was having the exact same problem with my sony handycam. I actually came across this website looking for the answer and noticed many people having the same problem but there was no solution to it.
I just happened to go to the sony website and decided to watch the tutorial on setting the camera back to the factory settings. It actually fixed the problem! I don't know if this will work for everyone or even how long it will work, but I figured it was worth a try. Good luck!
