Megapixels on camera needs to be reset?

My husband was messing with the settings on my camera and somehow changed the megapixels settings????? I went to develop a normal 4x6 picture and it said the megapixels were too small to develop the picture. I printed it anyway and it came out fuzzy

Check the sizes and quality pressing the FUNC button while in shooting mode. The left side options on your screen, at the left bottom corner will display the size and compression for the images, and select the desired size. See the manual for the correct size which corresponds to proper printing size. I suggest you to use always the maximum size for the S3: 6MP and compression at superfine, no matter what the size of your prints will be. Always check your SD card. A good practice is to carry a second SD card. 1 MB is OK if you don't use the camera for videos.

Is a good practice also to check always some basic settings prior to use the camera.

You can check the user manual to change again the resolution settings, or just reset the camera to the factory settings through the menu settings (last and bottom setting option).

Best regards,

Cameras don't lose megapixels but users can change the settings for them. Go into the menu and see if your camera is set for the maximum number of megapixels and the highest picture quality.

You Can Change The Size Of The Picture By Clicking The +/- Button And There You Can Select The Size Used In The Memory For The Picture But You Cannot Change The MegaPixels Used Becase MegaPixels Just Mean The Quality Of The Picture

Canon MF4370dn Network Multifunction Laser Networking setup prob


I never figured out how to reset the machine but I figured out what I messed up on. I accidentally toggled the MAC address RX Auto to off. This means you must specify the MAC address of the machine you want to access it. This is why my computer could not find the printer. I went into the settings on the machine and changed it to auto and it works great.
