You can perform a soft reset on the small Vado video cameras from Creative by cycling the camera's power. Let the camera idle for one minute, and it enters a power-saver mode. Let the camera idle for five minutes, and it powers down on its own. Once the camera is turned off, press the power button on the edge of the camera body to the right of the LCD display. If cycling the power doesn't resolve your problem, perform a more extensive reset by removing the camera's battery and reinstalling it.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the battery latch in. The latch is on the front -- the side with the camera lens, not the display monitor -- on the bottom of the camera body. Lift the battery cover up.

  2. 2

    Grasp the bottom edge of the battery. Lift the battery up and out of the camera body.

  3. 3

    Wait 30 seconds, and then insert the top edge of the battery into the camera body and press the battery into place. Close the battery cover.

  4. 4

    Press the power button to restart the camera.

Tips and warnings

  • Download and install the latest firmware and Vado Central software from the Creative Support site after reinstalling the battery if performing the reset does not resolve your problem.
