Question about Canon Digital Cameras

Open Question

I have a Canon WP-DC16 underwater housing for my A-720IS. I keep having the same problem, at any depht, of the functions buttons not working. The housing is clean, buttons don't stick. All others work. Could the O-ring for the back door swell with use of silicon grease? I changed the O-ring; still does it... Please; HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: underwater camera housing

I think I can.  
I looked on Canon's site and no luck, so I searched and found a website that may be of some help.  It requires a free registration, but it seems legit.  It is called TheUserManualsite.com.
The User Manual Site - We found it so you don't have to!

It seems to be a website that serves as a repository for user manuals.  People upload the manuals they have and search for and put out requests for ones they are looking for.  Here is the link for the manual you are looking for.

Sorry I couldn't find the manual, but I do think that should help if you can't find it another way.

Battery fault in A 720is


Digital cameras are very demanding on batteries, for example if a new alkaline battery doesn't work long in a camera, the same battery will often work fine in other devices such as a flashlight. The newest high quality rechargchables work great.

I have a 550 WP underwater cameraI I used it for 2 days on land but after a few snaps underwater it shut down and I haven been able to start it since . The batteries have been checked and are fully charged...


Unfortunately, these "waterproof" cameras don't always work as advertised. If the camera is still under warranty, I'd start there. It may be too late for this, but an old trick to dry out electronics is to put it in a bag of white rice for a few days to absorb moisture. It's a long shot, but I revived a wet cell phone once this way.

Date and time setting dont save, I changed the CR 1220 battery. Still doesnt save. Every time I turn on the camera the date / time setup appears.


In another forum I found a solution:
Remove the watch battery from the camera
Carefully bend the contacts inside the camera toward the opening that the battery fits into. - I used a heavy safety pin to bend the contacts.
Put the watch battery back in.
