Canon A720 IS self timer

I can't get the self-timer working on my new Canon A720 IS. I set it up as described in the user guide. The self-timer lamp blinks, like it should, but the camera doesn't take a picture. The camera then reverts to the default shooting mode as if it's taken the picture. I've tried this several times, always with the same result. Am I missing something?

    and the left/right button to change the option (10 or 2 seconds).

The user guide soes not tell me how to set up the self timer


On the rear of the camera there is a circular set of buttons with Func. Set in the middle. With the camera on picture taking mode press the bottom button in that circle to cycle between single shot, continuous shot, 10 sec. timer, two second timer, and custom timer. For more detailed info check this link from the canon website:

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/1/0900001461/01/PSSD800ISIXUS850ISCUGba-EN.pdf

Go to page 16 on the manual for the information you need.

HI, i HAVE JUST RECEIVED AN SX130 IS AS A GIFT BUT I CANNOT FIND IN THE MANUAL ANYTHING ABOUT THE SELF TIMER. I CANNOT WORK OUT HOW TO SET IT. CAN YOU GIVE ME DIRECTION PLEASE? THANK YOU V....


Press the Down arrow (from the buttons around the Func./Set button. Either turn the ring or use the up/down arrows to select the clock icon with 10 in it. Press the Func./Set button. Press the shutter button halfway to get the camera to focus on the subject as you normally would. Then press the shutter button fully. The lamp will blink and the timer sound will play. When there are two seconds left before the camera takes the picture, the lamp and timer sound will speed up. The lamp stays lit when the flash goes off.The Canon self-timer basic settings are on page 57 in the pdf of user's guide. Direct link is: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/5/0300003855/04/PSSX130IS_CUG_EN_03.pdf . Page 63 has the details for using a blink as the trigger for a delayed shot (since I wear glasses I've never tried this type of timer). Page 64 has the directions for a "take picture after a new face enters the frame of the shot".

If the direct link doesn't work, start here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras/powershot_sx130_is#BrochuresAndManuals .

I hope this helps.
