Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera ?

Repeated Date/Time prompt.

\015 Camera is less than a week old and every time I power it up, it prompts me for date/time. I fill in valid info, and proceed to shot. However when I plug into my computer to transfer photos it has forgotten date and therefore categorization is horribly invalid. Please help me resolve this issue!\015

Answers :

Hopefully, you have already resolved this, but if not...

What you will need is to replace the date/time battery for your camera. It is a 3V battery that you can purchase anywhere for $1-$5 and it slides into a small compartment located in your main battery compartment. If you look into the battery area on your camera, you will see a little tab that has CR1220 or something like that. Slide this out and you will see what I am referring to. These batteries should not have to be replaced more than once a decade, however sometimes in rare occurrences, they will die prematurely. It's an inconvenience, but an easy one to remedy.

Hope this helps!

Hi, I have been reliably informed that I can copy the pix from my LS743 internal memory to my memory card in order to view them via my pc. The guy in the camera shop told me that when I put the card back in my camera I would get a prompt as to whether I wanted to copy the pics over. Of course, I have no prompt... Can you help please? I have looked through the menus but apart from formatting option for internal memory or memory card there seems to be no mention of either! Thanks very much for any
