Time not staying in memory when batters are changed

Answers :

Some of the old camera phones as well as cameras, really lose their time and date as the memory doesn't have power to run it. Some of the new cameras store some power so that the time and memory stamp has enough power to stay on till the battery is replaced. I don't know what your camera is but the time not staying in the memory is normal in some cameras.

Frozen Camera I have a Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera. The last time it worked, the screen went checkered, so i turned it off. But upon turning it off, the lens of the camera stayed out like it was taking a picture. Now it won't turn on. I've tried recharging the battery, changing memory cards, no memory card, switching settings and turning the on/off switch. Is there anything to be done or I do I just need to get a new camera?

Hi, I have a Canon Power Shot S2 IS 5.0 megapixels that was working fine until one day I changed the memory card from 512MB to a 1GB. Now every time I turn the camera on and try to take a picture, a beeping sound and a legend on the LCD screen that reads: Memory card error. It's like something locked the shutter mechanism.

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.

These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras

I own a D90 and of late have had problem getting the shutter to actually fire and take a photo at times. It will work sometimes and not at others. I have tried changing the memory card - putting it on manual etc but still won't work. The battery is fully charged. It occasionally comes up with an r05 and r21 code in the R lower box and a flashing F at the top R when this seems to happen. I haven't played with the settings all that much - just since this has begun happening. Can you make any sugge

The r codes you mention are related to speeds of buffering information onto the memory card. A high ISO NR setting on the camera has a huge impact.... the cross over point is 800 ISO. If you have it on, and are on 800 or over, the remaining buffer ca ... Nikon Digital Cameras
