    None of the arrow buttons work, the menu button, trash, disp and others do not work. What does work is the rotating wheel, the take picture button, and the on/off button. When trying to take picture, it won't show preview on screen. When taking video it shows preview but lines go across screen. Got from cousins so it's in Spanish and no buttons work. It takes pictures and video dunno if zoom works i can only access files from computer and I updated drivers. Help?

    My camera used to take really clear, crisp pictures. But now the pictures come out all fuzzy, or you can't even tell what the picture is. And the flash turns everyone extremely white. Like you can't see their noses, mouths, and sometimes eyes. Anyway to restore my Polaroid i834 to its factory settings?

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.

Hello. How can I reset Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ60 to factory default? (Can I reset software and hardware?) Thank you for answer

Resetting by 'Software'
Resetting to the Factory Default Settings from the interface:
  1. Go to the interface of your camera by typing in the camera's IP address in the browser. Example:
  2. Click Setup, Maintenance, Default Reset, Reset to default and then click Execute.
Resetting by 'Hardware' Resetting to the Factory Default Settings using the Control button:
  1. Disconnect the 'DC IN' cable from the camera.
  2. Hold down the 'Initial Set' button.
  3. Reconnect the power adapter using the 'DC IN' jack while holding down the 'Initial Set' button. Release the 'Initial Set' button after 5 seconds. (The reset could take up to 180 seconds)
  4. When the 'Status' indicator changes to green, the process is completed and the camera had a Factory Default Reset.

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.

Reset code

I've ever had this problem too so I called the Nokia centre and they told me to go to the Menu-Setting-Restore Factory Setting. Done it's fixed by itself. Anyway sometimes you couldn't activated the camera when the battery is running low.

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.

Thanks for using FixYa!


Can i reset the settings to the original factory settings?

In order to reset the camera settings to its default values you need to do the following:

-Press the MENU button
-Use the left or right arrow keys to select the Settings menu (its icon looks like a wrench and hammer)
-Use the up or down arrow keys to scroll to the choice that says "Reset ALL..."
-Press the "Func./Set" button to confirm your choice.

This will reset the camera to its factory default settings.

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.

Reset to factory original

If you go into the "set-up" menu you should find an option which allows you to reset all the settings back to factory original.
