Each time I remove the battery from my Nikon CoolPix 4300, the clock returns to a default of 2002 (in the LCD window the date shows as 000000. Each time I use the camera I have to reset the clock and date. I left the battery in the camera over night to see if the clock battery would take a charge and maintain the date and time the next time I removed the battery. No such luck. It returns to default. Is this a problem I can correct on my own?


I probably need more details but, it sound like when you remove the battery to recharge it, the clock loses any power it had. Most people have a second battery. When the first battery begins to lose power, they insert the fully charged battery so the ... Nikon Coolpix 4300 Digital Camera

I bought a camera from a friend, Olympus e-420. but when i started to use it, i always got dark picture even the flash is already switched on. i'm thinking the built-in flash is delayed, do i have way to make it more accurate? i also noticed when i take pictures it always save's as ORF file. how can i change this settings to a different format? i already tried restoring the default settings but why can't i access the Custom Reset option on the menu bar?

The viewfinder of my Nikon D80 is grayish and blurry when it's off. I cant see a thing when I tried to use my 18-135 mm lens. I don't have a battery to reset it to its factory default settings. Do you think there's something wrong with the camera or the viewfinder is always blurry and grayish when it's off. I have owned D40 earlier and I could play around with the viewfinder even when the camera was off.

When powering on clock set always appears even when it has been set


On some cameras, I read, if you leave them off for more than a day, the clock will reset. If the battery gets removed from the unit, a capacitor has to provide the voltage to store the date, and will not last long. I guess the only thing to try i ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

I have a Cannon Power Shot SD770 IS Digital 10 mega pixels for over a year, I have been able to take many pictures at a time, then my daughter used it to take a few shots, now after eight pictures are taken, it says the memory card is full. I have reset the camera back to default, and changed out the memory card, I am still have problems, can you help?


When you check the card on the computer does it say its full or is their space left on it? Also it sounds like it is only using the internal memory. Have you checked the settings to make sure it is using the memory card?Thanks,Lee ... Digital Cameras

I own a Canon EOS Rebel XTi. This camera is unpredictable; i.e., I never know when it will decide not to record an image. I have reset it many times to the manufacturer's default settings, and then it SOMETIMES works, but then for some reason stops recording images. I have started to always carry a second camera (a point & shoot). However I am enrolled in a number of photography classes in the new year where I need an SLR. Is this camera issue serious or something I can fix? Thanks.


Okay at least the memory card isn't locked or it wouldn't be taking any pictures. Couple things one is did your format the memory card before using it? Do you format the memory card after downloading pictures to the computer? Do you just unplug the U ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI Digital Camera

My Pentax Optio M4 suddenly started to shut down and power off after starting up. It starts up normally, then gives 3 short beeps, then shuts down as if I had just switched it off. I have recharged the battery but the problem still remains. I cannot reset the camera to factory defaults as it doesn't stay on long enough for me to access the memu options.

I have a sony HDR-HC1e camcorder. It works perfectly until I change the battery or switch between mains and battery, it then refuses to start. Not even a hard reset will start it. Leaving it with no power for a hour results in it restarting correctly when battery reinserted although sometimes loses clock setting. I've checked the internal cell and it reads about 3V.


Hi,\015\012\015\012First try with new batteries as power received will be less as the batteries gets older and so camcorder might not be working well. Clean the metal contacts of the battery holder properly with dry cloth and then insert ... Digital Cameras

Forgets settings My optio s40 worked well until just after the warranty expired. Then it started acting up. It maintains the default settings in auto mode. It allows me to change them, but when I shut it off and power up again, it has returned to the default settings. In Pict mode, it maintains EV +1, AWB as flourescent lighting and image size as one higher than the smallest size. Again, I can change the settings, but when I shut it off and power up again, these are the settings it has. Any idea


I had the same problem. Pentax told me to format the memory inside the camera (take out the memory stick and camera will be set to camera memory). This works! (though i have to do it approx every 200pics, the problem keeps coming back!) ... Pentax Optio S40 Digital Camera

Dead Nikon D50 in mint condition... Changed lenses with the power off. Powered back on and no LCD, or any actions at all. Flash will not pop up, no shutter noise, no auto focus. No top menu, no back menu. Did the double green button reset and the hard (hole in the bottom of the camera) resets while both on and off, with and without batteries, with and without SD card and every combination. Tried different lenses, also without a lens. Tried with two additional Nikon brand, fully charged batteries

Several days ago I accidently left my camcorder in the "on" position. When I tried to turn it on yesterday it would not power up, so I changed to a charged battery, but still no power. I tried the AC adapter, but still no power. I tried reset, but nothing. I cannot get the camera to power up.
