Question about Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera

Accessing functions: sepia and B&W effect

While in shooting mode, set to manual, when I press the function key I can see the effect mode, but can't access it using the arrows. It just keeps switching back and forth between the bottom two resolutions. What am I doing wrong?

    Yes, I have the manual and have followed the instructions, as well I as can at least. It seems as if the options I need to select are "greyed out", as if I have some higher setting that will not allow me to manually adjust the settings or something. Perhaps there is a way to set the default settings????

I have the same problem, read the same page in the manual a above, and no resolution to it. Now, on top of not being able to access those options/features, the camera has stopped recognizing the Video and picture stitch features, so that when selected, all the camera does it simply take a photo. This is the 4th and LAST canon elph I will ever buy. I keep having to upgrade because their junk keeps malfunctioning...I will never again buy a Canon. Their Selphy printer is the same junk, after hardly ever using it -- it just stops working out of the blue and Canon gives you no support for these issues with their junk.

You may be selecting the wrong option on the menu. Here is the page from the manual on how to set this mode. You should be able to set B/W and Sepia in manual mode.

F 56-2 ERROR CODE


Key Operator Mode
To the Key Operator
The key operator is trained to handle all special key operator functions that are not
accessible to the general user, such as monitoring overall copier activity, machine
performance, and service information; modifying machine settings; and controlling user
activity, for billing purposes.
A unique 4-digit key operator password is normally set by service at installation. If the
unique code is not set by service, the copier will not display Key Operator Password
Entry Screen when the Key Operator mode is being accessed, and a key operator
password will not be required. A service-set 8-digit ECM master key code must be
entered by the key operator to access the Electronic Copy Monitor functions, and a
service-set 4-digit Weekly timer master key code must be entered by the key operator to
access the Weekly timer functions.
To ensure the security of Key Operator mode, it is recommended that you establish a
unique key operator password, along with the key operator ECM master key code and
Weekly timer master key code, and keep them in a confidential file.

How to get b & w pictures from my Nikon P 300 digital camera?


There are two monochrome modes available among the Special Effects in the Scene modes. They are Nostalgic Sepia and High Contrast Monochrome. Full details are in the Scene/Special Effect section of the manual (page 56 in my copy). There's also a Black and White Copy mode (page 54). If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.
In general you're better off shooting in color and converting to black&white using a photo editor on a computer. This gives you much more control over factors such as contrast and luminance.

How do I enable a compaq laptop's keys


Compaq Presario computers provide users with a row of function keys for added keyboard functionality. Function keys can serve a dual purpose as well.
Function keys are located at the top of Compaq Presario keyboards.
By learning how function keys work on a Compaq Presario you can take advantage of time saving keyboard shortcuts.Purpose
Use function keys to access menus, save changes and create shortcut keys.
Various applications, including Microsoft Office, allow you to select a function key as a shortcut key for running specific tasks. These settings are usually found under the Tools, Settings or File menu.
Each Compaq Presario computer has twelve function keys.
The most common used keys are "F2," "F8," "F10" and "F12."
The first three are used mainly to access and use the Compaq BIOS. "F12" is used to access a set of run from options during the boot process.

How to Access
Access function keys on a Compaq Presario by pressing any of the keys on the top row of the keyboard. Access the key's dual purpose by first pressing the "Fn" key located on the bottom row of keys.
Use function keys as shortcut keys by pressing them anytime while in the desired application. Remember, you must set them as shortcut keys first.
Note that some programs may already have certain function keys set as shortcuts.
Open menus and view the shortcut keys beside each menu item before setting your own shortcuts.


Dual Uses Each function key has a dual use. Press "Fn" plus the desired function key for the key's other use.
Below each function number is a small picture within a square or rectangle.
This dictates the dual use. "F1" opens help and support. "F2" serves as a printer shortcut.
Open your homepage by pressing "F3."
If you use dual monitors, switch between monitors by using "F4." "F5" puts your computer in stand-by mode.
Quickly lock your computer by pressing "F6." "F7" and "F8" adjust the screen's contrast.
Play and pause your music in Windows Media Player or other default media player by using "F9."
Press "F10" to stop playing media. Skip ahead or rewind media by using "F11" and "F12."

Other "Fn" Keys

In addition to function keys, the "Fn" key is also provides other keys with a dual use.
Any key with a small square on the key has a dual purpose such as the "scroll," "insert" and "delete" buttons.
Since laptop keyboards have no number pads, certain keys serve as the number pad by pressing the "Fn" key.

Need a code to get access to the system setting


OK right - you can't get the password but you can clear the password and start again by accessing the service mode. Press the additional functions key (the one with a star inside a head) and then press both the 2 and 8 keys together (at the same time as each other) then press the head key again. If done fairly quickly, you'll be in the service mode now. From the displayed options select 'COPIER' then press 'FUNCTION' then press 'CLEAR' find the 'PWD-CLR' then press 'OK'. You have now cleared all passwords and can access the system settings to set them up again or just leave the system password off.

Date/time stamp control in Menu won't allow access


In many cameras these settings depend on the shooting mode. Did you change the shooting mode? If so, return to your normal shooting mode and the function should be available again.

If this doesn't fix your problem I need to know if you have your camera's user manual. If I can find the solution in your user manual I need to know if you can read the steps in your own manual or if I need to provide you a link to read the manual online.

Check the WHITE BALANCE settings and the COLOR EFFECTS settings (marked as W. BALANCE and COL. EFFECTS when MENU is pressed).

When you got to the MENU setting, press up or down arrow until you reached either selection, press the left arrow, and you'll see several options under the selected function. In WHITE BALANCE, there's an option whether you'll be shooting under sunny or cloudy skies, tungsten or flourescent lighting, and an option to select Auto or Manually set White Balance. This affects the over all color tone as it compensates the color correction depending on your shooting conditions. Fluorescent lighting for example exhibits blue spectrum, thus setting White Balance to FLUORESCENT will add warm or yellow tones to the photo. Tungsten lighting and sunny conditions exhibits yellow lighting, and setting to the White Balance on this mode will add cool or bluish tone to the picture.

Same with COLOR EFFECTS: settings include WARM, COOL, SEPIA or BLACK AND WHITE (gray scale).

Chances are, you have accidentally set the WHITE BALANCE or COLOR EFFECTS to any of these. To see if this is the problem, try shooting under SIMPLE MODE (Marked with a HEART icon at the rotary dial on top right of the DMC-FZ7). If the problem goes away, then it is with the WHITE BALANCE and the COLOR EFFECTS settings. Try setting the COLOR EFFECTS to "OFF", and the WHITE BALANCE to "AUTO".

If all else fails, then you got a problem with the image sensor of your Panasonic DMC-FZ7 Digicam
