How do I hard reset my Nikon D5100?

How do I perform a hard reset on my Nikon D5100 DSLR so that it resorts to 'out of the box' mode (i.e. when I switch it on it will prompt for time zone and day/date settings)?

Many thanks for your help however the manually only explains how to reset the shooting menu and custom settings - I need to do a full 'hard reset' .

by Ian

give this a try "Nikon SLR, there are 2 ways: First: Click on Menu -> Shooting (camera icon) -> and select Reset Shooting Menu Click on Menu -> Custom Setting (pencil icon) -> select the Reset Custom Menu or by: If you hold down the • MENU and • INFO buttons at the same time for a few seconds, you can quickly reset your D5100 to its basic settings.

Couple things

1. Are you using AF-S lenses

a. If yes, do you have enough light for Autofocus/Auto Functions to work

b. If not, you have to work in Manual Mode.

2. Try another AF-S lens, see if that works.

a. If not, it could be the camera or take the lens cap off LOL
