Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I have a Canon Powershot A410 which does not remember the DATE & TIME setting when powered off.


Answers :

The camera's clock battery has worn out. On the bottom left side of your camera is a little grey plastic slide door. Use your fingernail to pry it open and remove the CR1220 battery (pay attention which side goes up). Take it to the battery department of your local drug store and buy a replacement. It's a very common battery and should only cost around $3.

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?

Hello, When I just bought this camera several years ago, I entered the time and date settings and after I've done this it never asked for time/date settings again.

Received a new SD990 IS today. Charged battery, inserted and switched on. Blue Canon screen appears but no request to set date and time, and none of the buttons have any effect. After about 30 seconds it powers down again. Seems to me it must have been damaged in transit. Any advice about things to try would be welcome, but I guess I may just have to send it back. Alistair.
