SOURCE: want to change the language

Make sure the mode dial is in playback mode and the camera is turned on. Press and hold the Func/Set button, then press the Menu button. This will bring up the language selection screen. Release both buttons and use the arrow keys to highlight the desired language. Press the Func/Set button to select.

I understand that it takes a maximum of 2GB. Still loads of photo/video capability. Don't make the mistake I did of buying a 4GB SDHC card for it. It won't take it.

SOURCE: Can the canon ixus 80 is be used as a webcam?

It may be able to be used that way (but its pretty iffy)...you would have to have to have a computer with an RCA-type video in jack (or an installed TV tuner card with the same RCA-type video in jack).

And if you have that setup on your computer, then you could use the AV cable that is supplied with this camera to send video out (either what is being shown on the screen in shooting mode, or already taken pictures/videos in playback mode) to your PC.

You would then need to point whatever software you are using to broadcast your webcam stream to the "video in" jack as the source of your webcam video (if it even allows for that option).

If you can do all that, it MIGHT be possible, but its probably a pretty long shot.

SOURCE: how to restart Canon IXUS 70

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they are just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

My logitech webcam won't work in msn messenger....in messenger when i try to make a video call...it says I need to buy or install a webcam? what's the deal? heeeelp


Hi Marilyn,

Have you installed the Logitech Quickcam program? If you did then open the application and select the instant messenger(i.e. MSN, SKype, Yahoo) that you will be using the camera.

If you have note yet installed the Logitech Quickcam application then I suggest you disconnect the webcam and run the software first.

Canon Digital IXUS 850 IS how to use as webcam?


The IXUS 850 IS is designed to store still images (and incidentally, videos) to memory. It is not designed to stream live video to another device.

I know that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

Yahoo messenger - Webcam is not connected


You cannot access camera source until the webcam is running in Messenger - try setting it up from scratch
1) The webcam is working outside of Messenger
2) Reboot webcam by unplugging the USB connection and inserting it again - its important if its been used elsewhere and prior to chat.
