Re: none of my buttons work

It sounds like the "button" circuit board is not working and will have to be replaced.

Press SHUTTER to advance to next date setting.
Press POWER/MODE button to toggle from 01 (January) to 12 (December).
Press SHUTTER to advance to next date setting.
Press POWER/MODE button to toggle from d01 (1st day of month) to d31
(31st day of month). Press SHUTTER to advance to next date setting.
Press POWER/MODE button to toggle from H00 (12 a.m. military time) to H23
(11 p.m. military time). Press SHUTTER to advance to next date setting.
Press POWER/MODE button to toggle from 00 (zero minutes) to 59 (59

Cannot turn on date stamp

The date stamp only works in "Postcard" resolution. Press the Func Set button, then scroll down to the bottom to select postcard resolution.
Then press the menu button. The date time stamp selection should now work. Simply turn it on.

Can't access menu on Fuji FinePix F460

Some of those buttons work in combination with the two dials (i.e., setting ISO and white balance, etc.). Hold a buttin down and user the knobs simoultaneously.
If this is not the issue, please describe specifically which buttons are not workin...

Sony DSC-W150 power on keeps going to set date/time

The date and time settings are displayed after turning on the camera. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif It is normal for the camera to lose time and date settings if the internal battery is left uncharged for an extended period of time; some cameras will default to the time-setting screen when turned on if this happens. Follow the steps below to resolve this issue.
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Insert a fully-charged battery pack into the camera.
    • If the camera is supplied with an AC power adapter, plug the adapter into a working electrical outlet and then connect it to the camera.
  3. Allow the internal battery that retains the time and date information to charge for at least 90 minutes.
  4. After enough time has elapsed to sufficiently charge the internal battery, turn on the camera.
  5. Set the time and date.
  6. Turn off the camera for 30 seconds.
  7. Turn on the camera again.
  8. Check to see if the date and time have been saved.
The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required. The Sony® eService Web site at can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

Cant get onto the menu screen

I finally figured it out!!! There is a button on the right-hand side of the camera, which switches it from normal mode to simple mode. Just press the button and everything goes back to the way it was...
