SOURCE: setting date on Canon elph Jr.

To set the date:
1. Press the Date button (rear left button on top of the camera)
2. Press the Select button (small round button up and to right of date button, may need pen point to press), display may show 97 1 1, with the 97 blinking.
3. Press the Set button (below the Select button) to change the value of the blinking character.
4. Press the Select button again to change to the next character. Use Set again to change. Repeat until date is set.
5. Press the Select button when all characters are set.

To set time, press the Date button again and the display should change to time (24 hour mode). Use the Select and Set buttons as above to set the correct time.

C, H, and P indicate the type of picture you want to take. C stands for Classic, and the picture will be in a standard aspect ratio. H is the wide angle setting, and the printed picture will be printed wide angle. P is panoramic, and the printed picture will be even wider angle than H. All this depends on the processor who develops your pictures for you. Ask if their equipment can read and process according to the instructions your camera will automatically put on each exposure on your film.

The three buttons on the left side are:
Top -- Flash setting. On (lightning bolt) or Off (lightning bolt with line through it).
Middle -- Film rewind button. Film should rewind automatically when fully exposed, but you can rewind before the film is fully exposed by using this button.
Bottom -- Self timer. Pressing this button puts a clock symbol on the display. When this is set, the shutter will delay 10 seconds after the shutter button is pressed. Press this button a second time to turn off the self timer.

SOURCE: Lens error, restart camera

Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

SOURCE: Canon PowerShot SD870 IS camera - Lens Does Not Fully Retract

Canon SD870 IS. Lense Error. Would not retract on power-down. Lense error reported when retracting zoom.

Noticed the rectangular frame about the lens was rotated off center. Manually rotated (squared-up) the lens rectangle while repeatedly powering the camera on and off. Modulating the power allowed for easier rotation of the rectangular lens frame.

Once the lens frame was square with the body of the camera, the lens completely retracted on power-down, and also zoomed in/out without error.

APS film chamber stuck shut. Door won't open when film chamber release button is pressed


Sorry to hear about this issue. If you have a change bag, I would put a few jewelers screwdrivers in it then put the camera in it. With the bag closed up I would attempt to forcibly open the back. With the camera in the bag there is not any chance to expose the film. After the film is removed wind it back into the cartridge. Now send it off for developing.

Good luck,
Cordially,

The LCD panel flashes an H when i turn it on


If a fault is detected, then the letter H appears on the LCD screen on top of the camera. The user manual for the ELPH 370Z says on the page that in such circumstances the user must remove the battery from the camera and wait for the H to disappear before replacing the battery. If this does not solve the problem, then the camera is actually junk. It is an APS film camera obsolete and spare parts are no longer available

Confirm tht DX shows in LCD. If not then press and hold shift button then press ISO so "DX" appears.Open Camera Back. Insert film cartridge, pull film leader out to right and align with red index mark (inside film chamber on right). Make sure there is no slack in leader.Close camera back until lock release snaps closed. Fully depress shutter until film advances to first frame.
Confirm " 1" and film transport show in LCD. If Film is not loaded correctly, "ERR" show on LCD. Open cack and reload film.

I own a sony cybershot dsc w35 when i switch on the screen displays "turn the power off and on again" help?


Hi. I had exactly the same problem with my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W7. The problem started after while lense was fully open, the battery became 100% empty. I did not have access to new batteries and did not have my charger with me so I put the camera on my car seat and went home. After charging the batteries, I turned the camera Off and the lense retracted 100%. Later on I tried to transfer some pictures to my PC. After connecting the camera to my PC with the dial in the P position and lense fully open I turned the dial to play in order to transfer photos. After transferring the pictures, I turned the camera off and disconnected from the computer.

I turn the camera on to take new pictures next day, The lense would go up, and and turn with lense fully open. It would never close. The screen was black with a message "Turn the camera on and off again". I tried 30 times or more and the same thing would happen again.

Here is what I did to fix my camera and it has been working normally since then.

1- I cleaned around the outside of the lense with lent free cloth

2- I used dust OFF to get raid of the remaining small dust particles from around the lense.

3- While turning the camera off, I pushed (down, up and turn) the lense in (NOT TOO Hard) by my hand. If you push the lense too hard, you may damage the mechanicall moving parts of the lense.

4- After a few tries, the lense retracted 90% +. I then pushed the lense a little harder all the way in, the way it normall retracts. The lense cover also closed 100%.

5- I turned the Camera on and off a few times. It was opening and closing exactly the way it used to. My Cybershot has been working okay since then.

I read a lot and here is what cause my lense to malfunction.

While lense was fully open and battery died, some small particles got on the lense and prevented lense from fully opening or closing.

In summery: two things could have caused your camera lense to malfunction.

1- if you had dropped your camera hard, some mechanical parts may have got damaged or dislocated. In this case you have to open the lense and replace the damaged part, clean and put it back on the camera. This is too risky for most ordinary people. You would most likely make it WORST.

2- If you did not drop it, most likly, some how some small dust particles got on the outside of the lense and they prevent the lense or the lense cover from fully opening and closing. If this is your case, please follow exactly what I did and your camera would be back to normal.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lens are stuck out. screen says "lens error"


There could be two things causing this problem.

1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can not take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard for a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal. Make sure to clean the outside of the lense when fully open and keep it clean always. If this did not help, read 2.

2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inspect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on the camera and your camera would be back to normal.

Good luck!!!!!!
