Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Date/TIme Screen ALWAYS appears when camera turned on.

We bought the Canon A570 IS a few years ago and after a couple of months, the Date/Time screen started popping up EVERY time we turned on the camera.  I have entered the date dozens of times but nothing will make it stick. The Date/Time continues to come on every time.

    I have the same problem, if happens very often but not always, most
    likely if I don't use the camera for 24 hours. Camera is less than 1
    year old, and the small 3V battery cr1220 that should take care of this
    still measures ok. Maybe a bad contact or something else is broken
    inside, anybody who has an other idea why this could happen?

You need to replace the lithium date/time battery. It is a CR1220 coin cell and it's replacement can be done using the instructions on page 109 of the advanced guide. If you don't have a copy you can get one here:

Blank screen during playback with gigawire webcam


Switch On your PC/ Laptop and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

This will always be displayed in your camera. However to choose what will imprint on the pix :

Turn your dial to SETUP and select DATE IMPRINT. Then select OFF (nothing will imprint on pix), or DATE (for just the date to be imprinted), or DATE and TIME (for both time and date to be imprinted)

Date and time


When you open the battery compartment, there is a small round battery(under the cr1220) slot, lift up this slot and take the battery out and replace it, this is the battery for that function of the camera.
