Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX S710 Digital Camera ?

Everytime I turn the camera on, it's asks to set the time/date. No matter how many times I HAVE set it, it always comes on again. So to use the camera I have to always go thru the "do you want to set the date stuff" first.


Answers :

---- This is a problem many Coolpix S710 owners have had and many have had a defective internal battery (it keeps the time and date). To see if yours is defective, fully charge the main battery, put it in the camera and let it set with the power button off for 24 hours. Try to set the time and date and see if it holds. If not, the battery needs to be replaced by a service center or just live with setting the time and date each time.
The next time you finish entering the date/time, press the set/ok/menu (whichever one you press to enter your data) twice.

I am using an Olympus E-500. and am trying to use the built in flash, set to one eight or to one sixty fourth of normal output, to trigger an external flash unit.

I have a Sanyo VPC-E760 digital camera that I bought used from a friend. Yesterday, I stupidly forgot to put the memory card back in the camera before I left for my son's first field trip.

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-P92 and it always has been working properly untill today. When I inserted a fresh pair of charged batteries the powerlight immediatly comes on, even before I turned the camera on. When I press the powerbutton and the camera starts I have to re-set the date, which is odd. After that done and ready for use the flash doesn't go off and it starts beeping and displays an error message: E:91.01 Is this problem fixable or should I throw it out of the window (metaforica

Monitor unlit I'm using my colleges D40 for my digital photo class. The camera was set by a prior student. I'm trying to find on the camera where the "Auto- Off Timers" is. I'm thinking the camera was set so the monitor is always off avoiding extra use of the battery. It has to be something simple and getting used to moving around the camera program. Thanks

Hi i am using a Nikon N75 to take pictures for my photo class, and the instructor wants us to take low light indoor phtotos at a shutter speed of 1/30 at f2.2. However, when i go to set these settings in manual mode the camera will not let me set my aperture to 2.2 it usually stops at 4 and there is no way i can make it 2.2. i didn't know if there is a limitation on the camera but it seems like i should be able to select what i want.


It's probably a limitation of your lens. You didn't say what lens you're using, but one of the common kit lenses sold with the N75 only goes to f/3.3 at best. If you had a lens that opens up more, the camera will let you use it.The differ ... Nikon Digital Cameras

I think it is possible I have inadvertently changed a setting. I use this camera daily to document construction projects. The HP PB360t has always performed perfectly until the last time and now all the pictures are comming out completely overexposed. It is hard to see any details of the image at all. I have tried in low light levels and the images are coming out at all but, poorly. I have experimented in vein with settings. As much as I use the camera I rarely adjust any settings, don't kn

When i turn on the camera, it always asks me to set time and date. If i click on yes, then i have to enter all the details as to the date, time, place. Also, the MP size defaults to 14MP instead of the previous setting, for e.g., if i had previously set it to 5MP, it would go back to 14MP after I turn the camera off and on.

Hi there. I have an Olympus E-510 that is about 3 years old. It's been working fabulous until just until recently. I connected the camera to my computer and downloaded some photos just like I always do with no problems - disconnecting it as I always do (USB).

I can still download any images from the camera but can't get off that menu. I've tried the reset
