Answers :


If it is not a hardware fault and your original query is "Is there any way to reset it?", pls see below procedures for an alternate reset. This reset would access the hidden service menu. This is of course assuming that:
  • there is no hardware fault; and
  • \015\012
  • everything else works except external memory.
Further, there are risks (as I was made to understand) since any mistake could make the problem worst. Follow procedures/try at your discretion.
  1. Press and hold menu button (standard menu will appear in the display)
  2. \015\012
  3. Press and hold shutter button(at this point, both the menu button and shutter button are still held down)
  4. \015\012
  5. Then (while continuing to hold the menu button and shutter button down throughout the sequence below):
  • 2xTELE (press right zoom button twice)
  • \015\012
  • 1xWIDE (press left zoom button once)
  • \015\012
  • (a blue information screen appears here)
  • \015\012
  • TRASH (press trashcan icon button once)
  • \015\012
  • PLAY (press upper left button on back of camera)
  • \015\012
  • 2xTELE (press right zoom button twice)
  • \015\012
  • 1xWIDE (press left zoom button once)
  1. The developer menu will appear (you can release the shutter button and menu button now).
  2. \015\012
  3. If you scroll through the choices, you'll find the reset choices. But, be careful that you DO NOT go into any of the AF calibration menus. One of them will start a calibration of the AF with no further warning. If you don't have a test target setup at the correct distance to the camera, it will mess up your AF very badly.
The above was originally posted here.

The alternative is to crack open the camera, remove the back-up memory battery to revert the firmware to factory default condition.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
