Performing a Hard (Full) Reset on a Samsung Galaxy Europa

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. A full reset deactivates the battery the power button does not function until the battery is reactivated.

Caution if you perform a full reset, your Samsung Galaxy Europa returns to its default settings and looses all information that is not recorded in ROM.

  1. If this does not solve the problem, perform a factory data reset. This can be done in two ways:

  3. When the device is turned off, simultaneously press the Volume key up and down, and then press End / Power. When an exclamation mark appears, press the Home key to reboot.
