Hi, I have a Canon Powershot A700 digital camera and I am facing a problem with it. The 'Mode Switch' button, which changes the mode from Shoot/Record mode to Play/View mode is not working....

If you have the manual for this camera turn to page 15.
This tells you how to switch between Shooting Mode and Playback Mode.
This is achieved simply by pressing the DISP button.
This button is located below and to the left of the FUNC/SET button.
Pressing DISP repeatedly toggles between Shooting Mode and Playback Mode.
I would suggest you try these steps with your Mode Switch in both positions alternately.

I have a canon SD 580. When I playback the video clip it's always in fast forward mode and I can't play it normal speed. Any help?

Make sure you are shooting your movies in "Standard" mode. If you have the mode set to something else, especially "Time Lapse", the playback may not match 'natural' motion.

In any case, you can control the speed of the playback. When you first enter the movie playback mode, there should be a movie control bar along the bottom of the LCD. Instead of the "Play" button, select the "Slow Motion Playback" button (single arrow with single bar next to the normal Play button), and control the speed with the left or right arrows on the multi-controller.

Fuji Finepix F401 - cannot switch to playback mode

There are no remedial suggestions I am sorry to say. These devices are made in such a way that a 'repair' would not be possible only replacement if under warranty- which this one longer is. 4 years is a good life and technology has moved on now so much that a new camera is going to be the only option.

SLIDESHOW function

You can play the images in your camera on a TV or save them to videotape by connecting the camera with the bundled Audio/Video cable. Power up the camera in the PLAYBACK Mode, press the OK/MENU button to open the menu and using the arrow keys toggle up to begin the SLIDESHOW. You can even change the playback format in the MODE MENU. Press the OK/MENU button and using the right arrow key select the MODE MENU. Toggle down to SETUP, toggle right to enter the SETUP MENU and toggle up once to PLAYBACK SETUP. When you toggle right you will be offered four playback options: NORMAL, SLIDE, FADER and ZOOM. When selected you will get the following effects: NORMAL - Each image instantaneously replaces the previous image. SLIDE - The images are sequenced by sliding from right to left. FADER - The images are sequenced via a lap dissolve. ZOOM - The images are sequenced by zooming in to black and zooming out from black.
