I received a canon powershot as a gift last year and am just now really starting to use it. 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). Is there somethign I can do to get the camera to retain the date and time? It is sort of annoying that I can't turn it on and take a picture quickly since it won't let me take one until I have entered the date and time. Also, I don't think it is stamp
There is a button battery in your camera (CR1220) that remembers the date and other settings when you remove the main batteries. It probably needs to be replaced. It's in a slide-out holder next to the AA batteries (see page 184 in the manual). ... Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera

Picture error I have a problem with my Olympus SP 500UZ. When I take a couple of pictures on one day. Shut the camera down and start it later on to take new pictures. The screen turns blue when I want to see the pictures. It gives the message: Picture Error or Fatal error and every photo on the memory card is gone! I send it to the Olympus repair for three times now, but they tell me every time that there's nothing wrong with the camera. Is this a known problem??

I have a canon SD1100 I just purchased and after a few minutes the camera will not shut off, the power button won't work and I have to open the battery cover to turn it off. Somehow this completely drains the battery too every time even if it was just charged. Also the camera turns itself on by itself about 10 minutes after you put the battery in it and once again you can't turn it off. I got another battery and the same thing happens. Otherwise it works fine.
If this is a new camera, you should be running back to the store to return it. ... Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera
When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it. There is no history

I purchased a Fujifilm finepix Z20fd camera from target last december. About a month ago, after putting a full charged battery into the camera I pushed the slider to turn it on and it would not come on. The battery charger tells me it is fully charged. After sliding the front back and forth a few times I left it in the "on" position and took out the battery and put it back in. It came on, but would not flash. Also I was able to close the slider, but the camera stayed on until I took out the

My camera deleted all of the pictures on my memory card. It was constantly telling me that my ''memory card was full'' when I knew that it was not possible. I messed around a little with the menu, including putting my camera into low level format for the memory card. The next time I turned my canon camera on and pushed the button to review my pictures it claimed ''no images''. There were over 50 pictures on there that were lost. Have you ever heard of such a thing or do you know how I can retrie

Lens error Hello. I've had my camera since October now, and of course it's fallen a couple times or been bumped into things, but it's always worked fine afterwards. But tonight, I had it on my tripod, which apparently isn't as sturdy as I thought it was, because it fell straight forward. My lens fell right on the concrete. It is like, visibly crooked now, not much but you can tell, and every time I try to turn it on the lens tries to extend but then it just stops, the screen goes black for a sec
