Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.First, turn the camera Off (if it isn't Off already.)Then, remove the SD card, or memory card, from your camera.Then, hold down the Image Review button, and at the same time, press and hold the Power button. Release both buttons when the camera starts up, and that should reset the camera. (Keep in mind, if this works, your camera's memory will be wiped of any individual data or settings.) (Why do you need to reset the Unlock Pattern on your camera? I'm just curious, but the circumstances vary on this sort of problem, and so do the solutions, correspondingly... in case what I suggested doesn't work.)

I don't see an Image Review button on the S800C but I did try the 4 buttons that are on the camera to no avail.I received it back from repair and it was returned to factory defaults. none of the PIS's I normally use work.

Is it a PIN number that you need to work?Or is it a pattern that you enter on a touch-sensitive screen ?

Its' asking for a password ***** only numbers are available when it fails the message is the pattern is incorrect.

I'm sorry - a posting occurred in error. I am straightening it out. Thanks.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 2 years ago.
OK. Do you know what the number it is asking for was set to, or do you have any record of that number?
Have you tried entering 'default' numbers, such as
(if it is a 4-digit number) ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have defaults and whatever PINS I would have set to no avail.
I do not know how many digits it's looking for.
What I want to do is reset the android PW to startup where I can set the PW.

Do you not even know what PIN you would have set up for it, to the extent of how-many-digits was in it?
