When I turn the camera on, it is stuck on the Language menu.

If you have not yet, try selecting a language.

You may need to do a hard reset. Turn your camera off, then remove the battery and media. Then try to power it on with the battery out and hold the power on for about 15 seconds. Then place the battery and the media back in and power on. The language menu should not be stuck anymore.

If this doesn't work please comment and we can try another solution!

How to set picture resolution.

Turn the camera on and set the slide on the right hand side to the red camera icon, as if you are taking photos. Turn the dial on top of the camera to the red camera icon. Press the middle circle button (menu/set), you will see that the 'picture size' menu is highlighted. Press the right arrow key to view the different resolutions available, select with the up, down and menu/set button. Press the menu/set button again to leave menu. To change resolution in intelligent auto mode, do the same thing but turn the dial to the red camera with the 'iA' in it.

Canon Rebel EOS - Pictures download read Low Resolution

Canon Digital Rebel cameras let you set the image resolution from small jpegs (low resolution) to large jpegs (high resolution) to RAW (best quality, but require post-processing in your computer before you can print them). It's possible that as you were getting to know your camera you accidentally set the image size and quality to a low setting. Now you just need to change it back!

You make this change in the on-screen menu, under the camera menu (first menu, with a camera icon), first item (Quality). Although Canon no longer has the manual for this camera online, you can see This Review Page for more details on where to change this setting on your camera.

I cannot figure out how to change the resolution

Upper left of the Arrow pad is the LCD Display On / Off button; beneath that is the Menu button; and further down is the Image Resolution / Erase button. You can change the resolution from there.

I am not positive if this is what you are looking for, but if you use the menu button on bottom right corner of back of camera you can change the settings for the picture resolution and the fineness of the stored images. If you set this and it still will not take the change, suggest removing the memory card and then turn camera on, use menu button and the go to reset and tell it yes. Then set all the settings the way you want and try it. Dont forget to set the time and date after resetting camera.

Camera Frozen


I tried Option No.1 successfully when my Panasonic DMC-FZ7K froze once:

Option No1:

1. Try turning the camera on with the battery inserted.

2. Now remove the battery while the camera is on.

3. Flip the switch on the camera to off, then insert a fully charged battery. (Make sure that the battery's orientation is correct. Also make sure that the battery being used is not damaged).

4. Now flip the camera's switch to ON again.
Option No. 2:

If you can open the Setup menu then the camera can be reset which might help:

Turn on the camera.

1. Press MENU SET.

2. Press the left arrow button.

3. Press the down arrow button.

4. Press the right arrow button.

5. Now, press the up arrow button several times until the menu item named RESET is highlighted. Push the right arrow button and then select and set YES when the camera asks to be reset.
