A full reset is sometimes referred to as a hard reset. Perform a full reset when you want to clear all settings, programs and data from RAM.

  2. Then a warning message appears. Press to do clean reset, or press to leave the operation screen.
  3. Performing a soft reset will not change the data in the device; while performing a clean reset will delete all data.
