Customer Question
Hello, I am wondering...

Hello, I am wondering if there is a way to set my Nikonm D5100 camera back to the original default settings?

Technician's Assistant: How old is your D5100?

It's about 4-5 yrs. old.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your D5100?

I got frusturated with a whoile back and I may have it set on something that it shouldn't be on. I think that maybe going back to the default settings would help.

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

No, I don't think so. Thanks!

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.
