Customer Question
I just received a...

I just received a Panasonic DC-FZ80 while attempting to set time etc. I accidently hit the set button, how do I start this over?

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had your DC-FZ80?

I received it today.

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

I put in the language (/English) and began the date portion when I accidentally pressed the menu/set button.

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

Only that I wish to start over.

I got the time set, what do I do next?
Camera and Video Technician: Shahid, Camera and Video Technician replied 23 days ago

Nice, you can now set the time using that option

Also, do you want to start over the setup process?

Ask Your Own Camera and Video Question
Customer reply replied 23 days ago
I would like to so I will have it all done correctly.
Camera and Video Technician: Shahid, Camera and Video Technician replied 23 days ago

If you still have Clock Set option on the screen that means you're in Setup option of the menu (that I'm asking), go down the list and find RESET option to restore the camera to default settings

Please reply back with the result
