I think he is trying to reset his camera back to all the "defaults". There is no "one button" to restore to "default". Per his manual pages 44 and 52 (footnotes) he has to go to each feature and "cancel" to restore to the camereas "defaults". No simpler way I could find or know of for that brand.

How do you restore bios

If your camera does act strange, it is just malfunctioning and you need to contact a service centre.
If there was a bug in the software, all registered users would have had a mail, for a firmware upgrade. I'm afraid there is not such a thing as restore bios.
The deepest restore, is reset settings in the camera to factory settings, but for that, your camera has to work normal.
What settings you can set back and how, you can find in your manual.

Factory reset

There is no such thing as a factory reset with Nikon cameras. The greatest reset (restore costume settings) you can get is in the Custom settings menu.
The first line in that menu is Reset custom settings. If you use that, it will reset more settings, that with the green button restore. It won't involve or switch back switches you have put from AF to M, on the camera body or on the lens.
If your camera does not show and ERR on the Control panel, it is not likely your lans has any problem.
Refer to the manual, to see how you should put all the switches on the camera if you are not sure you did something wrong.

I can not connect to the internet with this tablet. My WiFi is connected and working but that is all. I can only play the two games loaded but can't access anything else.

The answer to your problem is to reset your tablet by going into setting and find privacy tap into it and there are backup and restore sections. There is also a section to reset back to factory reset. Tap into it and it will restore back to work.

When I play back video, the sound and the video are out of sinc. What's wrong? Also, the video seems to be in slower motion than it should be.

Settings of Audio and Video speed are mismatched

Just go on to the settings options in the camera and restore/reset it to factory defaults

How can I restore my camera's original settings? I've misplaced the manual & 7 yr. old played with settings.

Holding down the menu button for 5 to 10 seconds usually brings up the reset menu. But if that doesn't help, here's your user manual direct and free from Canon. By the way, just out of curiosity what symptoms is your camera experiencing?

Canon powershot A470 problem when i click photo then white image come why?

Go to the menus and find the set to default option.
This should reset the menus and options to original.
Go to the menu section find a setting something like this... such as.. reset all to default or set to factory default or simply RESET.

Check to see if the pictures are saved to the card by taking a picture, then remove the card and play it back in either another camera or use a card reader to read the card.

If these tests shows that no picture was taken or it is all white, then the camera needs repair or has a ccd problem.

Another option is to call Canon Repair at the following page and use the 800 number for calling the repair department.
Canon has a trade-up or trade-in program which is a great way to get another camera at a good price. Canon will allow you to trade in your camera for a reasonable price against a refurbished camera plus a cost which is reasonable. A refurbished camera will come with everything it had when new, and will have been restored to original specifications.

I have a Canon PowerShot S400 and every once in a while the image gets blury and the colors are off. is there something I can do to fix it?

This is problem with the sensor. See this link. Canon has acknowledged issues with sensors in some model cameras, including the S400. Instructions are provided on the link to have your camera repaired at no cost, regardless of purchase date. If you don't live in the US, contact your regional Canon service agency. This service notice is effective world-wide.
