Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have just purchased a JVC Everio, I'm having problem setting clock. I use the joystick to get to "clock adjust" and set time and date, but it always reverts back to factory settings, can you help? Thanks, Randy

Answers :

Hi Randy,
\015\012You don't say what model it is, but as a generic answer, did you press SET before exiting the menu? Set is the large center of the "joystick".
\015\012When you say reverts back to factory settings, do you mean you get the message to Set Date/Time! If you would like to Comment back with the model number if need be, but hopefully that will work for you.

Hi there, I've just bought a DMC FX500 digital camera. In the movie mode when I've recorded say 30-40 secs of footage the remaining time always reverts back to 8m 27secs [using a 4GB card]. This should surely reduce and deduct the the time I have left after the video clip was recorded? Cheers any help welcom, PK

My canon powershot camera goes to set the date and time every time I turn it on. I set the date and time, take a few pictures, turn off the camera, turn it back on again and it ask for the date and time to be set again. This problem developed after a year and a half of no problems. Is there some way to set the clock where it will continue after it is turned off?

I cannot turn the flash back on. When I push on the lightning bolt button nothing happens, the display shows the flash turned off. Is something wrong with the camera. I have not had it that long and just use the IA mode and I know it worked before; can I reset the camera back to factory settings? I tried all the other modes and was able to use in in C1 but then I was messing around with that and now won't work in that either. Thank you for your help.

Cropping I have had my Fuji Finepix S7000 for a few years now. I have always been able to zoom in on the pictures in playback mode and trim them. I have tried to do this today and it won't let me trim any of the pictures. From looking at the manual I'm wondering if the files are saving as CCD-RAW files? Any ideas how I managed to do this and how I get back to being able to crop them? I would be very grateful for your help.
