Reset default camera says busy

Give the camera some time. Don't remove the battery till the reset is done. I hope your battery was charged before you started the reset.
If the battery runs out of power, you must charge it comlpete, before putting it in again. I hope the reset went well. If not only try a reset with a fully charged battery.

Reset fujifilm s2940

There is no complete reset, other than removing the batteries and letting the camera sit until the internal battery drains (at least 24 hours).
There is a RESET command in the Setup menu, which will reset everything except Date/Time, Time Difference, Background Color, Battery Type, and Video System.

A factory reset to the original settings may fix the problem. Make certain your software is up-to-date and any changes to the canon firmware are current for your operating system.

I just bought a canon powershot sx200is. I

Sounds like you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function. Remove the card and all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...try to turn it on. Let me know.
