To reset your Hikvision camera back to the 'as new' factory default settings, please follow these five steps:

Step 1 - Log into your camera using a browser (Internet Explorer is still the preferred browser)
Step 2 - Navigate to Configuration -> Maintenance
Step 3 - Click on the Default button:

Step 4 - You will be asked to confirm your selection, and warned that the camera will reboot.
NB - All settings will be reset AND the camera will be inactive.

Step 5 - After resetting your camera you will be able to start afresh, as when the camera was new. You can use Hikvision's SADP tool to activate your camera and set its IP address and password etc. (normally the route you would take if you are adding the camera to your LAN). If you are adding the camera to a Hikvision NVR, then you should be able to plug it into an available camera port and the 'plug-and-play' feature should add it for you.
