Can't reset my A77...
5 months ago

I was trying a bit of video with my A77 and I'm not impressed by the amount of noise from the internal microphone.  I did some reading and saw some suggestions that if you plug in an external microphone or just a connector cable into the external microphone socket and do a hard reset then this can fix the problem.

I figured it's worth a shot.  I know the camera well enough to restore the various settings I use, so seems like a no-risk option.  The only problem is I can't get the camera to reset.

The firmware is v1.07, and I've tried the Menu + Movie + Playback key press with various power off, power on, hold for 5 seconds, etc., combinations.  Nothing seems to work.  Is there a special trick with timing here?  Or are there different buttons I can try?  I saw one combination that uses AEL but that seems to be only for older firmware.
