Question about Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Date time battery casing

Hi I am in Toronto, canada. I have a unique problem here. My wife dropped the camera one day soon after i bought it, at the time i did not know that the little battery( that powers the date and time) fell out along with the little casing that it fits into.Love the camera, works great for me, it's hard to find the little battery casing anywhere though since the camera was discontinued. If anyone can direct me to a source would be greatly appreciated.

    HI Aerolle,

    Sorry i was not on for quite a while. Thanks for your

    suggestion, i think you are right can't seem to get it anywhere.

    Is there a way that i can make the battery work without the casing? I put the battery in just like that and sometimes it will work but sometimes it wont. I was wondering if i can stick something in there to hold it in place, but maybe there was some kind of a conductor in the casing as well. Trying to see what the casing looks like online , no luck

    Thanks a lot

I guess you cannot buy this thing anywhere but from the Canon Service Center. Just present the item so with your warranty card and let them do the work. Since dropping it voids the warranty, they'll have to charge you with the hardware replacement and on the service. i think this is the best thing that you can do.

Please Rate Thanks!

Suggest me an unique Bachelor party Bus service in Toronto?


I am sure Bachelor parties would definitely be one of the most memorable experiences in everyone's life. This is the time when we look back upon all our memories and all fun time that we had together with our dearest friends. So it is always good to end the Bachelor life, with a great memorable and exciting party as well. This could really make your day!. So I had taken up the services of the Toronto Party Bus for the same and they provided me and my friends with so many exciting features as well. They took us from one club to another, and when we said we wanted to go to a restaurant they helped us out in choosing a good one, and also dropped us there too!. They also made sure that everybody on board was dropped safely back to their locations, and they had a very expert driver as well. They arranged the whole party inside the bus and allowed me to have a really good time with my friends. So this is really worth the money I spend and I would suggest you take up their services as well.

Casio EX-Z750. Have to reset date and time every time camera is turned off, then back on. Is there an internal battery that needs to be replaced?


It's twelve years old - it's probably dropping gentle hints that you should be thinking of retiring it soon.

To answer your questions, depending on how much use, (meaning how many snap shoots) will dictate whether your camera has reached its life expectancy. The proper procedure for long life with the battery is to have it totally drain out before charging it. If charged too soon the battery has a memory and will only work as long as the short period the battery was charged. It sounds like camera is worn out. Good Luck

My wife is complaining that every time she turns off/on the camera she has to reset the data/time. I understand that when the batteries are changed the settings may be lost, but not simply when the camera...


Sounds to me that there may be another battery inside the camera that is going bad.


Issue: Everytime I power on the camera the Date / Time needs to be set.
Solution: Replacing the Date Battery for the PowerShot A480.

Replacing the Date Battery. If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date battery charge is low and the date and time settings have been lost. Please purchase a lithium coin battery (CR1220) and replace it as follows.
Please note that the first date battery may appear to expire relatively quickly after you purchase the camera. This is because it is installed in the camera at the point of manufacture, not when you make the purchase. caution.gifBe particularly careful to keep the date batteries out of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a battery since corrosive battery fluids can damage the stomach or intestinal walls. 1. Confirm that the camera power is turned off.
2. Open up the battery door / cover and remove the AA Batteries.
3. Remove the date/time battery holder.
4. Grasp the battery and slide it in the direction of the arrow.
a480backupbatt.jpg 5. Insert a new battery with the (+) side facing up.
6. Replace the battery holder and battery cover.
7. When the Date/Time menu appears set the date and time.
note.gif After purchasing the camera and turning on the power for the first time, although the Date/Time menu will appear, you do not need to replace the date battery. If you ever dispose of your camera, first remove the date battery for recycling according to the recycling system of your area.

Re - Lumix Panasonic DE- 994 battery charger ??


Hi Cyril,
In theory this charger is fully automatic and stops the charging process once it detects that the battery has been fully charged (it will not restart charging until the battery has been taken out + put back in).
Of course, as with any electrical item, it's probably safest to unplug it if you're not planning to use it for a long time (e.g. weeks.)
Hope this helps.

Anyone want spare parts for Canon S40?


Hi BigLarry, My toddler daughter recently dropped our Canon S40, and broke the casing on the camera. It still works, but doesn't retract the lens when using the slide cover. I need to replace the casing. If you still have the unit, would you be interested in selling it to me for spares? Is the casing still in good order? If so, I will bear all costs of postage too Hope to hear from you soon Regards Simon L
