In most battery opperated, fim cameras, the buttons are usually composed of a plastic outer, the part you press, and underneath that button is a thin piece of angled plastic that keeps the button from depressing when you aren't touching it. That thin piece of plastic usually isn't very sturdy and can and had a tendency to break in half making it impossible to get a battery reaction. If you trust yourself with a small screw driver and have a good memory of what you take appart, you can replace this piece yourself. Any camera shop will have the piece you need. Other than that, you'll need some super glue to secure it and you should have a refurbished Mode button~!
Good Luck and I hope you're up taking photos soon!

Yes, but not in the Auto mode, where the camera decides whether or not it needs the flash. Switch to the P mode, which works like Auto except you have control over the flash, exposure, and other factors. See pages 26 and 42 of this manual.
My HTsi Plus never seems to be able to Auto Focus on a subject, so when you push the shutter button half-way, it just flashes the focus indicator (telling you it is unable to focus). Try switching over to the "Manual Focus" mode. On the front of the camera there is a button labeled "AF/M". Push that button to switch to manual focus. If the camera is in manual focus, the external LCD screen will say "M.Focus". Now try to snap a shot. If that still does not work, there may be something wrong with the camera or the lens. So, try using a different lens in manual focus mode. If it still does not work, then I would say the problem is with the camera itself.
You should press and hold AE button and Shift button at the same time. While still holding the AE button keep pressing the shift button to scroll through the available mode. Refer to page 40 of the manual below for more info http://www.lensinc.net/manuals/T70_user.pdf
This question is answered for you in the 800si user manual. By pressing the program-reset button, marked with a P top right, this will re-set all camera fuctions, but not red eye reduction-data memory-and ISO setting. To turn on red-eye, press the flash-mode button in the inside of door, turn front or rear dial untill a small "eye" appears in data panel. When selected, the flash will fire a series of small bursts before the main burst, causing the pupils to close slightly, so reducing red-eye. To turn off red-eye, select another flash mode. Resetting all custom fuctions, press and hold the ajust button in door of panel, slide main switch to LOCK then return it to ON.
If the camera is going into rewind mode as soon as it is switched on you should check the manual rewind button and make sure it is not stuck in the on position. It is only a small rubber button that you would use a fine pen tip to push in, sometimes they can get stuck inside the cover and end up being on all the time. This model I think has the button on the bottom of the camera.
The battery is not the problem. It is more likely the the internal switch has failed, (always stuck on self timer). The switch is a ring around the release button for the shutter. The small black tab covers the red LED in normal release mode, the self timer is on when the tab is facing forward.
Is there a micro focus switch on the lens
On my lens if switch to Micro Mode the Auto focus is disabled, Also it is a stupid question but you are using a AF lens and not a xi series or manual focus lens.
