Resetting the combination is only practical if the suitcase is open as the reset tab is located inside where it cannot be tampered with when locked.
if it is a set of dials lock a locksmith could help you.

SOURCE: change luggage key combination

Email from Samsonite in response to my plea for help:
Dear Sir/Madam:
The following are the lock picking instructions you requested from Samsonite Consumer Relations.
1. Position the luggage so that the numbers on the wheel are
right-side-up as they face you and set all three wheels to “0′.
2. Starting with the wheel on the left, to the right of the wheel,
look into the narrow space between the right side of the wheel and
the body of the lock. Look down into the shaft. (If you have a
safety pin, straight pin, or thin nail file, place that in the
narrow space.)
3. While looking down into the shaft, rotate the wheel slowly. You
are looking for an indentation (a square notch). When you find
the indentation, stop and write the number down. (If you are using
a tool, the tool will fall into the indentation.)
4. Follow the process for the remaining two wheels.
5. Try to open the piece of luggage.
6. If the luggage still will not open, please try the following:
a) If the number on the wheel is over 5, subtract 5 from the
number showing. For example, if the number showing is 8 turn
the wheel to 3 because 8-5=3.
b) If the number is under 5, add 5 to the number showing. For
example if the number showing is 2 turn the wheel to 7
because 2+5=7. The numbers showing on the wheels will be
your combination.
If you still have a problem with the combination lock, contact the nearest authorized repair center to your zip code for repair assistance. Our warranty and repair information can be viewed at http://www.samsonite.com under the heading “Customer Service Repair Centers” for your reference.
We appreciate your loyalty and will continue to design products that are reliable business or travel companions.

SOURCE: I HAVE THE TSA COMBINATION LOCK ON A SAMSONITE GRAVITON G LUX

I can't answer the problem - but am interested as we had an identical failure on holiday in South Africa. We had to force the case open as the lock and the mechanism seemed to have come adrift in that when moving the lever with the correct combination - the case neither opened or closed. I'm sending it back to Samsonite under warranty to hopefully get it repaired/replaced. I rang the UK number listed on the Samsonite website. Bit disappointed as Samsonite should be more reliable - particularly given the price of the case, at £295, isn't exactly cheap.

Eminent luggage lock


TSA lock on Eminent Osmosis Luggage, three digit TSA lock (HOW to change it to YOUR personal number)

Put the code numbers to '000'
Take the lock levers OFF the lock
Push the round opening button UPWARDS.
IMPORTANT :
KEEP holding the button UP until you have changed the numbers
Change the TSA code numbers to what YOU want
Release the round opening button
Now your case combo lock numbers have been changed.

To lock the case put the two lock levers into the holes, spin the numbers and your case will be locked.
To UNLOCK the TSA code spin the numbers to YOUR lock code, push the lock button UP and, hey presto, your case will open.

If you forget your NEW lock number you will NEED to go through ALL the numbers, starting at '000' to '999', to be able to open the lock/case.
REMEMBER to PUSH the ROUND OPENING button UPWARDS on EVERY number change.
Only THEN, when it finds YOUR correct three digit number, will it eventually open the suitcase/luggage/baggage.
Good luck

You can have the locks changed but, that will cost almost as much as new luggage. They will have to be kept unlocked and a TSA strap will be needed around the suitcase.
