Question about Canon Sure Shot A1 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

Open Question

Camera doesn't work

I've bought a "Canon Sure Shot A1 Panorama Date" and inserted a new CR 123A Battery. But nothing happens, the cam doesn't work at all. In the back of the cam there is a CR 2025 battery but I think this is only for the date function. Is the cam probably broken or do you think that it maybe work if I change the CR 2025 battery?

SOURCE: Canon A450 internal battery problem?

There are cameras with 'fixed' internal batteries to maintain date/time they are long lived and not usually replaceable.
If this is such a model and it is new then a replacement should be forth coming from the vendor or Canon.
The vendor is the first stop then Canon support

SOURCE: Date/Time Set Won't Work

Write to Canon's customer service. I dropped my camera in water briefly and wrote them. They offered me the chance to replace my camera at an outstanding price or have it repaired. Give them a try!

SOURCE: in my canon Power shot sx100is . how can i get the date on image

Good evening!
Bad news. For the date embedded feature, the image size is FIXED to the 2M (1600x1200) setting with the compression set to Fine.
The only other way I can think of, is if you are printing from software that came with your camera. When you start the software and transfer your photos, there will be a box to check if you want to add a date stamp to your photos.
Sorry about that! Mine does the same thing, only I never put the stamp on mine.
Hope this will be ok!

SOURCE: I have a canon A720 IS with the same problem

arignote,

i have the canon a720IS and was having similar problem with my date/time. once i discovered the small cr1220 battery next to the regular battery compartment, i replaced it but the problem still was there.

i looked closely at the cr1220 compartment and took a toothpick and just pulled the metal prongs out a bit, so that they were in better contact with the cr1220 battery. ever since then i've had no problems.

good luck.

I need an instruction manual for a Canon sure shot a1 panorama date camera


Ordinarily the panorama feature is utilized like this: you choose a panorama subject, and move your camera on a straight horizontal line with keeping your shutter down, and trying to capture the whole scenes into the lens. You can also stitch several common photos into one panorama picture(in vertical, horizontal, tile, 360 degree, 3d) with some programs like ArcSoft Panorama Maker.

I don t have a solution, but I got a similar problem. When I install new batteries, they only last for maybe 10 snaps- snaps ,then the "battery" light comes on and camera shuts off. I ve tried several sets of different batteries so its not a battery problem.

I got the Canon Power Shot G9 camera for almost 3years . It has been running well. But last month, somehow I could not operate it. It is not battery issue. At first I thought the battery was so old, so I...


The Canon G9 has a design defect, two screws fall out inside the camera and short out the fuse. If you've never had it fixed for no power before this is most likely what has happened to your camera.

Do a Google search for "canon g9 no power repair" and you will see a full repair service including return shipping of your camera for just $85.

Hope this helps!

You don't need to open the camera to change the film. The battery door is on the other end. You open the door by inserting the protrusion on the plastic end piece of the strap into the slot of the battery door. It takes a small 3 volt battery.

Canon 40D can not turn on


Same problem. Fully charged main battery. In my case, I hadn't used the camera in over 6 months. All I did was pull the main battery and then pulled the small CR 2016 button cell battery located inside the main battery compartment and re-inserted both batteries. The camera made a quiet click and then turned on with the main power switch and asked to reset the date and time. Works fine now. If this doesn't work just purchase a new button cell.
