Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera ?

The date and time will not stay set. I set the date time . take pictures and when I shut the camera off. the next time I turn it on the date and time is zeros again...

Answers :

The world of compact digital cameras is fast and furious blink and you'll miss the new model. These pocket point and shooters are cram packed full of features that most people neglect to utilize. So it's uncommon for the problem you describe to occur however it's simple and fairly inexpensive to repair. What you need is to replace the camera's internal battery which holds the custom functions and date time settings after the camera has been shut off. Normal internal battery life is greater then five years and a lot of my cameras go ten years before replacement. A camera store not your big box type but one that actually sells cameras and does film and print processing. I don't know where you are to even suggest someone. However at the bottom of the camera where you would place the memory card and batteries there is another slot for the internal battery. This link half way down the page will show the open battery door and where the internal battery is located.

There has been few complaints or problem with this camera except for the very weak internal flash.

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?

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta

I have just bought the Kodak M381 camera and when I set the date and time and click ok, the time is set but does not display on the LCD screen at any point, so when I review my pictures there is no way of knowing when I took them.

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).

My D40 does not shut off properly, and sometimes turns on by itself. It seems to be getting worse, and sometimes I can only get it to turn off by putting the on/off switch in between the two settings. Also, sometimes if the camera gets left on I have trouble taking pictures the next time I go to use it (even if the battery is still charged).

Obviously something is wrong with the on-off switch. I would have it serviced. ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
