Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera ?

I have a Canon Powershot A560. The date and time stamp do not work. I checked the manual and it says to replace the battery located under the flip-up panel on the left side of the camera. I can not remove the cover plate. Where can I get help to fix this problem? I need the camera on October 13th.


Answers :

Think your problem is that you are looking in the wrong spot. Don't know why your manual is telling you to look there (are you sure your manual is for the A560)? \015\012
\015\012Your CR1220 date/time battery is located in the regular battery compartment. Look right beside your AA batteries. You'll see a little flap labeled "CR1220". Slide this open with your fingernail, and take the little coin battery down to your local drugstore to buy a replacement.

Hi, I have an AVLABS AVL961B Digital Photo Frame. I can't get my photos to be viewed screenwide. The left column shows list of filenames, and the right side shows a small image of selected photo. When I select OSD on remote, nothing happens. When I select ENTER, the image disappears. I can't find anything in my manual to help me. If it matters, I have loaded over a thousand photos on a SD card. Hope you can help. Thanks, Connie.

Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking. I cannot then even get the camera to shut down eithout removing the battery or just leaving it until it times itself out. If i remove the battery, I still have to turn it on & then off again to get the lense to retract. Can you help to solve this problem. It does it no matter what the charge in the battery is like. Full or half used.


Hello ... Digital Cameras

My m1033 won't read the card and only lets me take 6 pictures and then says the internal memory is full. I get the pictures off the camera and card by connecting the camera to my computer, not with a card reader. But it won't let me get the pictures off the card anymore. Just happened yesterday. I removed the card and battery, and replaced them but that didn't help. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
