If you want to reset your Sony Cyber-shot Camera, there is a way to do so and restore the factory settings. This can be done as a troubleshooting method, or if you want to sell or give the camera to someone else. It will be exactly as it was the day it came out of the box, with all pictures and settings deleted. Be sure that you back up all your pictures before resetting the camera so you don't lose anything. You will also have to reprogram the time and any other settings. This process is the same for all Sony digital cameras.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Press the power button on the top of the camera to turn it off.

  2. 2

    Open the battery compartment on the bottom of the camera and remove the battery.

  3. 3

    Press the power button and hold it down for 15 seconds.

  4. 4

    Insert the battery back in the bottom of the camera.

  5. 5

    Press the power button to turn the camera back on.

Tips and warnings

  • Back up all pictures before resetting the camera, as there is no way to restore data once you do.
