Canon power shot A550 date and time setting button not functioning

All figures put in do not register once for all. You need to set figures each and every time once you open or close the camera.

SOURCE: I have to set the

YOUR PROBLEM SHOULD BE OVER! ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR CAMERA IN THE COMPARTMENT WHERE THE TWO BATTERIES GO IS A SMALL DOOR. THIS IS THE CLOCK BATTERY DOOR! YOUR CLOCK BATTERY MUST BE DEAD OR MOSTLY DEAD. AT LEAST IT IS WORTH CHECKING OUT. THIS IS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE OF TIME DATE FAILURE BECAUSE IT WILL RUN WITH THE MAIN BATTERY POWER WHEN THE CAMERA IS ON, BUT WHEN YOU TURN IT OFF, THIS SMALL BATTERY IS SUPPOSED TO KEEP THE TIME, DATE CURRENT IN THE OFF MODE AND IT IS DOING IT! CHECK IT OUT AND SEE IF THIS DOESN'T SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. GOOD LUCK! HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU!!

SOURCE: I am trying to set time and date on a calculator

OK, I bought one over the weekend just for chuckles. I figured it out.
On the top of the calculator there is a key that shows a little clock. Punch it once and the date appears...like 01-01-2000 or somesuch. Press it again and the time shows up..

Hold the time set key (=) down for a second until the first zero starts to flash. All you have to do is start punching in the time. When you are done press the time set key again. Voila!

Punch the key with the little clock again and the date shows up. Hold down the time set key for a second like explained above until it starts flashing. Enter the date with the key pad numbers. Done!

I couldn't figure this out either till I looked above each key (didn't notice what it said). Anyway, look real close.

Hope it works out for all and everyone finds this solution...

SOURCE: A550 date/time problem

Open up your battery door, and you'll notice another tiny door labeled "CR1220". Pry open that door with your fingernails, and you'll find a little button watch battery that keeps the time settings for your camera. It's time for a new battery. Take that little battery down to your local drug store (Walgreens or Rite-Aid). Should only cost about $4. Note that Walmart is more expensive for these type of batteries, and drug stores are usually cheaper (I know, it's hard to believe).

You have to change the 'date battery'. Use the user manual to find its location.

Mine is Canon A520, located beside the cable link sockets. Battery is CR 1220.

How do I change the shuuter speed on my A550 power shot canon camera


Since there is no shutter or aperture priority mode on the A550, the shutter speed is predetermined by the shooting mode. You can try changing the ISO speed when in a certain mode, but the camera may compensate by changing the aperture setting rather than the shutter speed. You'll have to experiment.

You can place the camera in Long Shutter Mode, however, when you want exposures times between 1 and 15 seconds. You set that by pressing the Function menu and Func. Set button when in [Camera icon]M mode, then using the < and > buttons to cycle through the long shutter settings.

Hope this helps!

Canon sd 750 how to put the date in the picture?


here is the solution:
The date and time can be included on the pictures taken only with the camera in postcard mode. You must also activate the date stamp option in the menu.
To set the camera into postcard mode, press the [Func.] button on the camera, then use the [arrow down] key to go down to the last option in the menu, and there you can choose the [Postcard mode]. Press [Func.] again to exit the function menu.
