Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I cannot get a date stamp in my pictures with my Canon power shot A560. I can't get the option to turn it on, it says date stamp off.


Answers :

In order to get the date stamp on the pictures, the resolution/size has to be set to "Postcard". Look at the menu and you will see L, M1, M2, M3, S, and Postcard. Then you can turn on the date stamp option.

After uploading pictures from my camera to my pc yesterday, the zoom lens will no longer retract into the camera.

When I turn the power on, it beeps and says "turn the power off and on again" plus it shows a battery in the upper lefthand corner. When I turn it off and on, I get the same message. I can view stored pictures but can't take pictures. I have charged the batteries and it makes no difference. Since I have been using and recharging the same batteries since I got the camera, could it just be that I need new rechargeable batteries? I bought the camera in 2004 and love it. Is there any hope for this c

I received a canon powershot as a gift last year and am just now really starting to use it. The pictures seem fine, but the it seems like I am frequently requested to put in the date and time (i.e. about every 2nd or 3rd time I turn the camera on). Is there somethign I can do to get the camera to retain the date and time? It is sort of annoying that I can't turn it on and take a picture quickly since it won't let me take one until I have entered the date and time. Also, I don't think it is stamp

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen.

When I recently turned on my camera (D-630 Zoom) to take a picture, I got the message titled Card Setup, with two options "Power off" and "Format". I turned the camera off, took out the memory card (1GB) and put it back in, as I did the last (and only) time this happened, about two years ago. But it has not worked, and I have been getting this message with the two options for a few days. Any ideas? Thank you.


If this exact card has worked in the camera before, chances are it has gone bad. Typically, if the camera says to format the card it is because it does not recognize the card. The only reason this would happen is if the card is unreadable from malfun ... Olympus D-630 Zoom Digital Camera
