How do I turn off the "Auto" on my camera?

I have a Centrios, model number 2518143. My son touched a button on the camera now I can't take pics. I think he tried to make it like a video camera. Does that sound possible.

I can't find the centrios website to download drivers for my digital camera. Where did it go?

You don't say which model the camera is. There is a driver for a Centrios webcam at THIS LINK, but I don't know if that is what you are after (and I haven't downloaded or tried it myself).

Pics too dark

look at the sensitivity settings (shutter speed), you may have set it too high (set it to auto). Try turning on intelligent exposure to auto/on. Turn intelligent/auto ISO on. Use iA setting for full automatic ono the dial when shooting. As for the message digital pic will go to memory, then that prob means you don't have a SD memory card installed, or it's not formatted, or set to locked.
give those a try.

My son hit some buttons on my xt and I am on vacation now. In auto mode it will let you take one pic and that is all. You have to turn the camera off and then on to take another pic. In addition, I cannot...

First, try removing and replacing the camera battery. Sometimes this will reset the settings. If that doesn't work, then you need to reset your camera by removing (and then reinserting) the small internal battery. They call this the "date/time battery" but it is also responsible for saving all your settings when you turn the camera off. This battery is located in a tray on the side of the battery compartment. Follow the instructions on page 38 in your user manual. If you don't have your user manual with you, you can download it from this page at

I need advice on how to take Ice-hockey action pics...

Pictures get blurred because of several reasons:

Low shutter speed - occurs in low lightning conditions.
Auto focus not focused - occurs when pressing the shutter button all the way without waiting for the auto focus ready signal (green box)

To speed up the shutter do the following:
In Camera menu-Quality- Set ISO 100 for outdoor, ISO 400 indoor.

To avert focus problems, set camera menu-Rec- Focus-Infinity, Rec-Quick shutter-On

Hope that helps.
