I have just bought a Samsung Galaxy Camera GC100 from ebay, which it turns out is an ex store display model.

Have contact the seller, no response so aside from going through ebay complaints, which i will do, it looks as it I am stuck with the camera... I love it, but want it to work properly obviously.
My question is this... is there a way to reset the camera back to original settings? Before anyone suggests it, there is a password on the item so I can not use the Settings-Restore route... I was wondering if there was a hard reset that could be forced by pressing a combination of the buttons or something...
Nothing i have tried so far has worked, and aside from routing it, which i think would do the trick but I am unsure about, i have no options.
Any suggestions gratefully recieved.
Not many folks around here have the galaxy camera but it's android so we'll do out best to help you out.
To start with, how are you able to take pics if it has a password on it?
You can gain access to notifications and settings by pulling down the screen from the top. See if you can get into settings/ backup & reset/ factory reset.
Please know I don't have this cam and my help is coming from Google. There's one other member Claghorn
who may be able to help you find the settings- he has this cam.
