Question about Canon PowerShot A300 Digital Camera

Settings Is there a way to set my camera back to the original settings. My kids were playing around with it and now when I go to take a picture it is all fuzzy and distorted. I have tried in the menu but wonder if there is a reset button to do this. Thanks for the help

First check to make sure the kids fingerprints are not all over the lens. If the lens is clean, then your kids are probably not at fault. This really sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

By the way, I also have an old A300 that Canon fixed for me this way.

To reset your camera back to the original settings, please switch ON your camera and press (keep it pressed) the MENU button for 10 seconds. You will be asked to "reset settings to default". press the left/right buttons and select OK

One of the kids have played with the picture settings of my akira tv and I don't know the original settings of the tv. Can you pleas e tell me about the original numbers


Set it to default picture state. Refer its user manual for details. In most cases, the default picture will have more color than normal. Reduce the color intensity, as you like to see.

All of the pictures are grainy and very dark- not usable camera at all- less than 2 years old I have re formatted the SD card, changed the batteries, and reset the camera to default settings


To fix your issue with the Canon Powershot SX110 IS Digital Camera, try cleaning the lens. A huge issue with malfunctioning pictures can be as objective as a dirty lens. If that doesn't solve the issue, try to make sure that your flash is working to its full power. If you are taking a picture in a low-light area and the flash isn't giving off a strong enough light, this will cause grainy/noisy dark photos. Lastly, try playing around the with settings on the configuration screen. Sometimes digital cameras can malfunction, even after reformatting, and will apply alternate settings from what you originally had set.

Hope this helps!

You may need to look up how to reset your camera to factory settings. Look that up in the manual. You will not loose any pictures.
Hope this helps.

Kids fooled around with the remote and got into the menue on firmware and canceled the normal set up. TV now will not allow automatic channel set up. No pictures just screen with channel selection blank...


Here is what you need to do to get back to the original configuration: Setup > Factory Reset by Input, and confirm that you want to reset the settings.

If the reset you require is to correct a more serious issue, you may want to try an EEPROM reset. If you call Amergence Technology at 866-965-3842, their Level 2 Tech Support agents may be able to walk you through it.

I don't see where in your user manual that the kids can change the firmware, here is a link to an online copy of your user manual if you do not have one handy.

Your best bet is to rest to factory settings that should clear everything up for you

In the setup menu, look for an entry marked "reset". if you find it, it can return your camera to the original settings.

Hello: on the backside (screenside) of the camera, on lower right hand corner there is a hole for the reset button. Use a paper clip to push in to reset the camera back to ALL factory original settings. You will need to manually reset date, time, etc.

Try resetting camera and then formatting internal memory. Just make sure when you are formatting that you take your memory card out or transfer you pictures first. Then you should just have to enter info again. When you power back on it should stay. If it doesn't then call 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 2 and they will tell you where to send it.
