Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera ?

Date and time will not stay saved, i have to reset it everytime the camera goes off.

Answers :

Inside the battery compartment there is a small door marked "CR1220". This is a small disk-type flat battery which holds the date memory. It sounds like that battery has gone flat, which is most likely causing the problem you are experiencing. A replacement CR1220 battery should be available from any electronics store (Radio Shack etc.) for very little money. I don't believe many camera stores stock the battery, however, as there aren't many cameras that use it. If this solves the problem, please rate the answer favorably. Thanks

There's a little battery in the camera under where the tripod mount is. Make sure your camera is out of warranty before attempting any repairs. Opening the case will void your warranty. Do this at your own risk. \015\012\015\0121) Remove a ... Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

Blurry photos THe last few times I have attempted to use my camera I have had two problems. One, each time I turn it on it resets itself as if I have never used it and goes back to the language selection and and I have to reset the date (which I stopped doing because of the inconvenience every time I wanted to take a photo, so now all my photos say January 1, 2000).

Blurry images I purchased about a year ago a new Panasonic DMC-TZ4. And up until this point, I was in love with this camera. However, just recently, sometimes when I turn the camera on, the screen is showing images to be out of focus and blurry. All the settings are correct. Some times it stays like this for hours. Other times, I can turn the camera off and then back on and the blurriness goes away. Twice the camera has frozen and I had to take the battery out. And some times when I turn the cam

Camera keeps loosing the time and date settings. When turning the camera on the lens does not open, then a screen asking to set the date and time settings appears - once date reset the camera works properly. Unfortunately this seems to happen almost everytime the camera is turned off.

Switch glitch When i turn on my camera it goes off again within a few seconds (or maybe less). I have to turn it all the way off (slowly) and on again. Sometimes it stays on (at least long enough for a photo) and other times not. Has been getting worse so now the camera is pretty useless.

When I switch the camera on the screen stays blank even though the lens comes out, it eventually goes off (with the lens still out after about 40 seconds). I can get the camera to work if I press the green "view" key and then, after the picture appears, press the red camera icon and it will go into auto shoot mode. Happens every time now. I can't take it in under warranty as it was a present and I don't have the receipt unfortunately.
