Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera

Open Question

Non functioning set-button

I have a Canon Powershot S40.
And I can't use the set button of the 4-way selector switch anymore.
If I press it (e.g. to select a menu item) it slips to the right or the left.
So I am unable to select a menu item...
Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

SOURCE: Canon Powershot A75 problems

Having read on a few sites about loose ribbon wires causing problems and having this same problem. I decide to take the camera apart. Taking all the screws out and fidling with the "wires" connecting the zoom control and the photo type selector and the main circ board. I also cleaned the connector from the picture type selector. Then put it all back together the camera works fine again. NOTES... lots of small screws with varying lengths make sure you know where they come from. Took about 1 hour to do.Put back in the order you take apart or the back will not go back on.. Good luck have just saved myself a fortune

Looks like you need to take this to a camera store and have them check it over. I don't know of any setting that would cause what you describe.

Hi,
There in no need to download driver explicitly, As driver comes inbuilt with your Window 7 operating system, you need to connect your device (Camera) with the computer through data cable and just need to follow the instructions.

Borrowed camera. PowerShot SD500. How do I delete a picture?


You can download the PowerShot SD500 user guide/manual here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=323&modelid=11157

But the short and skinny is here:

To erase single images:

1) Use the <- or -> button to select an image for deletion and press the "little trash" icon.

2) Use the <- or -> button to select [Erase] and press the FUNC./SET button.
To exit instead of erasing, select [Cancel].

You'll find the erase information on pages 131 and 132 of the pdf.

Have fun!

Canon A540


The date will only show up on the picture under a limited set of circumstances on the Canon PowerShot digital cameras, of which the A540 is one. You've probably found the Date function in the menu, but discovered that it was off, grayed out, and skipped over whenever you tried to reset it.

Date stamp will only work in "Postcard" mode. Press the Function button (labeled "FUNC SET"), then press the down button until you reach the Recording Pixels selection (usually labeled "L", but not always). It's probably the bottom onscreen selection. Use the right or left buttons to select Postcard, then press the Function button again.

Press the Menu button and scroll down to Date Stamp. Now you should be able to select "Date" or "Date & Time" with the right or left button. Press Menu again and take your pictures.
