E500 factory reset

Can anyone tell me how to do this please.

The advanced manual details a procedure which I've tried to follow but the camera will not go to the custom reset function in Menu 1 (which I assume is the place to head for) but jumps from Card setup straight to Picture mode without stopping at Custom Reset.
Any ideas?

If the camera is set to 'Auto' mode, this function is not available. Set the main dial to another mode (M S A or P), and the function should return.

Thanks John - as it happens it had got pushed to auto accidentally. If only guys like you worked for Olympus their manuals might be a little better
