Factory Reset Good For Various Vendors Camera Health?

On a discussion about an Axis camera we talked about using factory reset to get out of a wedged state ("wedged" being a vague technical term meaning things were not working right.) Does this happen with other vendor's cameras? I'm wondering where the pattern is. Yeah, I've made an Axis camera cough furballs by setting the config to strange values. But I get paid to torture cameras so that's not a fair sample.
