Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can't get normal color in video mode.

I can't turn off color accent and color swap in video mode to get normal color. When I switch to standard or to anything else besides color accent and color swap, everything turns blue. I do get the normal color briefly when the screen alternates back and forth between the normal colors and black and white in the color accent mode.

We just solved this problem! Rotate the wheel button (above the Display & Menu buttons) to see the various option (Color Accent, Color Swap, Compact, etc.) and stop when you get to Standard.

My color accent seems to be stuck. I tried the solution listed for placing it in standard but it didn't work. No matter what function it is in, the color accent is on.


Check the right strap lug and make sure it is tight. This model has a history of one or both of the strap lugs screws coming out and shorting out various parts of the circuit.

I am about to install my boss bv8962 unit into my vehicle but I want the parking break safety feature bypassed. What do I do differently during installation so that my passengers will be able to watch tv...


Yes, you can bypass parking break feature by connecting the corresponding wire of BV8962 to ground, also you could add a 3 pin toggle switch to get a normal and bypass mode switch, this can be wired of this way, the common pin of toggle switch to your video unit, at the other pin, it could be connected the parking break wire (normal mode) and the remaining one to ground (bypass mode).

Color Accent and Color Swap


Color Accent:
  • enter this mode
  • point to a color you'd like to highlight
  • press Menu
  • shoot
This will be the only color, all other colors will now be shades of gray.

Color Swap:
  • enter this mode;
  • camera will ask you to input Original and New colors;
  • use Up and Down to select how loose/precise color selection needs to be;
  • point camera to something with Original color and press Left
  • point camera to something with New color and press Right
  • shoot
Everything with the Original color will be shown with the New color.

Both of these procedures are described in the Advanced User Guide, pages 59-63 ( http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900001430/PSSD600IXUS60CUGad-EN.pdf )
