How do I reset he factory settings on Lumix 300

Technician's Assistant: How old is your Lumix?

Couple months old

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Lumix?

I adjusted settings according to a youtube video by a brittish guy. Then experimented with manual focus and low light adjustments. Messed it up. Want to go back to auto mode for video

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
(I regret that I am not able to offer Live Phone Call service at this time; However, your request is still open to other Experts in this category, and one of them may pick up on it at any time.)

Try this:

Press MENU/SET

choose 'Setup' (wrench icon)

Then in Setup menu, scroll down to find one of several, about 3, 'RESET' menu items. One is simply 'RESET' and that's the one you should choose. (Not the 'Number reset', and not the 'Exposure Reset' and not the 'Reset WiFi'.)

Does that help? let me know - Auto Mode may have to be chosen by using controls, after the reset, and if you need guidance on that, I will provide it. Just let me know, thanks.
