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.


The problem is the internal battery that powers the storage of time and date. If the camera is unused for a while, it will discharge. You must put a freshly charge battery into the camera and leave it with the power turned off for 24 hours to charge ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 Digital Camera

Daate Stamp We recently lost our Canon A95 camera and replaced it with a Canon A640. We cannot get the "Date Stamp" to work on the menu. We see it listed last on the menu. However the lettering is black (not white like the others) and we cannot get on it to turn "Date Stamp" on. You Camera User Guide is useless. Please advise how to turn the Date Stamp feature on.

The camera is 2 years old, when turning on the power it goes to the date set,you can change the year, then it slides over to the month, but seems froze up, then the camera resets itself, if you skip the date set up, it shows a view on the lcd, but can't take a picture, and the camera resets again. My son borrowed it and took pictures snorkeling, so it may have gotten wet, but the lcd screen is not distorted as it was a year ago when I got water in it.

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

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo with flash black lines appear all in the photo. I've tried finding a reset button, but nothing has been found. As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS

I just find it weird with the no lens problem. See after purchasing it and test was done the camera is quite okay. I've charge it for until its full and its ready for use for my trip. I'm pretty sure i did not dropped the camera and it was in my laptops case when i have the flight. then worst thing comes when i turned it on and at first the display is blurred again i turn if off and on, then the error lens came out. 4 days in the island i did not used this camera at all. by the time i went back


The island? Maybe sand got in the camera's lens holder - the cyllinder-shaped part that comes out. Or dust from the bag. Try a vacuume cleaner to take out any such thing but do not scratch the lens! Good luck ... Nikon Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera

I have a small white Flip-like video camera offered by Sharper Image. I believe it to be perhaps the first model of the 'U-video' line. This video camera was offered by the newer, taken over Sharper Image. I did not buy the little video camera at a Sharper Image store, but at a Stein Mart store. It cost me $40. I'm looking for the manual for it. I want to know how to reset the date so that the date is correct when I video record something. This is not the latest of the Sharper Image Flip-like


Please let me know if this is your camera. If it is I can get you the manual\015\012\015\012http://a.slickdeals.net/attachme ... Digital Cameras

I have a Pentax M20 camera. I love the camera but all of a sudden I find that when I turn the camera on, the camera almost instantly shuts off. I have new batteries in the camera. When the camera first starts up I can see "Green Mode" on the screen but it immediately shuts down. The camera is not allowing me to access any programming modes at all and certainly not allowing any picture taking. Until just a few days ago I have had absolutely no problems with this camera. Any advice is greatly appr
