While you can reset items in the camera to their default setting, there is no actual hard reset like one would expect, just the 3 soft reset options:
1. Shooting Setting
2. Custom Setting
3. User Setting
Non of these actually performs a hard reset as one would think of, which would reload the firmware and reset the unit like it just came out of the box.

I have read elsewhere on of different possible factory reset options that went something like:
1. Turn Camera Off
2. Hold down the shutter button
3. While Holding the Shutter Button remove the battery
4. Continue Holding for 2 mins
5. Leave battery out of camera for 48 hours

I tried a few of them, but they never yielded any thing. I have also tried reloading the firmware but if memory serves me, it didn't let me and just told me I was already up to date. I'm sure there probably is an actual process for performing a Hard Reset on the camera that the techs can perform, but it's not documented in the manual, nor have I found it on the internet. Best I can offer you is that I saved the stock settings right after I powered up the camera and entered the time zone and language information. Shoot me an e-mail and I'll send the NCSETUP7.BIN file over to you, but I don't think it is any different than performing the 3 resets listed above.
