I have a digital watch SHARP made that says SUNDAY when really it is TUESDAY how can i get watch to say the right day?

Take a look at your watch. While models and brands vary, you'll find a few things in common on almost all of them. First, they'll have different modes of operation. A typical digital watch may have modes for time, stopwatch, date, alarm and timer, to name a few. Look on your watch for a button labeled "mode." Press it several times to see what's available. Typically the watch will display the name of each mode as you push the button repeatedly. When you've found the mode you want to adjust, stop there.

  • 2 Look for a button that is labeled "set" or "adjust" on your watch. The location will vary, depending on the brand of watch you own. Press in and hold this button. After a few seconds, the time (or whatever mode) you have selected will begin to flash. In most cases, you'll need to select the item you want to adjust (minutes or hours) by pressing "mode" again. Once the portion you want is flashing, you're ready to adjust it.
  • 3 Press a button to advance the parameter (hours or minutes) that you've selected. This button may or may not be labeled. If it isn't labeled, you'll have to experiment with different buttons. Once you've set the first parameter, change to the second by pressing "mode." Follow the same routine to adjust. To exit, you'll typically press the "set" button.
  • 4 Use resources available to you. There are thousands of digital watch styles on the market, each with slightly different setting methods. When you buy a watch, tuck the manual away in a safe location for reference. If you don't have the manual, do a website search. Most major manufacturers keep their manuals online for easy future reference.

    I have a Cannon PowerShot S2 IS digital camera, about 5 years old. The LCD Monitor and Viewfinder both only show a black screen with some of the Dispay Icons across the top and bottom, and after a few...

    A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

    QUESTION:::::::::: I have an M520 that used to take great pictures - now lately the picture is distorted and seems to be all grainy/green. I\'ve tried each of the options, resolutions, brightness controls, etc. Sometimes (not every time) after I make a change to the brightness or resolution or white balance setting the picture goes back to normal - but not everytime. Most of the time it\'s just unusable because it\'s so distorted... almost like it\'s over exposed? I\'ve literally checked every setting available to no avail. I want to say it started happening after doing a firmware upgrade. Anyone else having that problem?

    I bought a Sony DSC t700 approximately 6 months

    If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera may be set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly illuminated environments.
    To set the camera to the Forced flash setting so it will flash regardless of the surrounding brightness, press the UP ARROW on the control button until a lightning bolt icon appears on the LCD screen.

    If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
    When shooting MPEG movies
    When set to the Twilight mode
    If an external flash is connected
    If in the Burst or Multi Burst mode

    Please touch the MENU option on the screen of the Camera.
    Then, select the REC MODE under the MENU.
    Then, select NORMAL under the REC MODE.

    If you're not able to select the NORMAL under the REC MODE, try Initializing the Camera.

    First, please touch the HOME on the LCD screen of the Camera.
    Then, select the SETTINGS in the HOME menu.
    Then, select the MAIN SETTINGS under the SETTINGS.
    Then, select the Initialize under the MAIN SETTINGS.

    If the issue still persists after performing the troubleshooting steps provided above service of the Camera is required.

    It's required to physically examine the Camera to determine the exact issue at the service center.

    No more flash?

    I have done a lot of photography, some professionally, and am old enough to have used film cameras longer than I have used digital :>)

    My immediate thought is what ASA speed do you have the camera set to? If it is something like 3,200 ASA, rather than 200 ASA which your film may well be, everything is going to show overexposed in normal light. Perhaps 3,200 ASA is an exaggeration, and in the reviews below, the ASA specifications of the camera as regards metering are not mentioned. Guessing it will be in Mode - Settings?
