Battery ( 6 volts ) is situated in front on the left hand side. Small hinged door will pop open if you unlock at the bottom corner. Clean contacts before installing a new battery.

Battery exhausting too fast


The usual cause of excessive battery drain is water damage. However, make sure you are using the right batteries. Classic Silver Age cameras like the Canon AE-1 were designed for the more expensive silver oxide batteries. The much more prevelant alkaline batteries will only last maybe 1/5th the time.

cant say anything else with camera make and model number

How do you turn off AE/AF Lock on a Nikon D90?


You may download a copy of the manual from here.

By default the AE/AF Lock only holds while you hold down the AE/AF Lock button on the back of the camera. If you've changed the configuration so that this button locks the AE/AF, you can unlock it either by pressing the button again or by turning the camera off and on again.

I haven't turned the camera on for a couple of years. I've tried charging the battery, but I can't get it to power up. Do I need to replace battery or is it something else?


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Lost the sd card after taking photos the with Cannon A570is. How can I recover the photos with only the camera?


If you haven't transferred the photos from the card to some other device then the only way you'll see those photos again is if you find the card. It's like anything else you have only one of. If you lose it, you've lost it.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

What kind of battery does my Canon AE-1 take?


The AE-1 uses one 6V battery, either a silver-oxide Eveready 544 (or equivalent) or an alkaline-manganese Eveready 537 (or equivalent).

My vpc-e890 will not turn on it will flash sanyo across the screen and go right back off the lense doesnt come out or anything


In general, most digital cameras have two different sets of batteries. The ones that you might be able to recharge, and the ones that you might barely be able to locate.

If you still have the manual, look for the second type of battery. They might resemble a quarter or a dime, or be even smaller. Called button batteries, they control things like the date and time, and other features in digital cameras.

If you have a battery tester, check them. If not, go to a camera store, or a pharmacy (these batteries also work in hearing aids, etc.), and buy replacements.

Do not buy them because they visually resemble the ones you have, but buy them by the battery type.

The most common is "CR025" or a similar name. Only buy a replacement by the model. Insert them and then try your camera.

Good luck.

Canon ae-1


To open the back pull on the rewind knob ( pulling up ) until back opens. Check that your 6 volt battery is ok ( ae -1 has an electronic shutter so will not work without a battery ): battery situated on the left hand side of the camera ( if it is facing you ) underneath small flip up door ( lock is at the bottom on the left of the small door ) . Check the battery by pressing the shutter release gently and seeing if your light meter needle moves. No movement ? replace battery. You have two modes for taking pictures : auto which is actually AV ( aperture priority) or full manual : both are set by moving the shutter speed dial on the top right hand side ( underneath film winding lever ).
