When I put the canon D70 in the manual shooting mode, i cannot change the dials like previous


Make sure there isn't a dial lock feature engaged. In some models, you can lock out the dials to prevent accidental changes while shooting.

My camera will turn on then go off and the lens will not go out how do i fix this?


The manual is a bit confusing. I do have a power shot, but is is a bit younger. My camera does have 2 On buttons. One to put it in shooting mode. And one to set it in display mode. If I press the display button (arrow right) the lens stays where it is and I only can see pictures I took. When I press the on off button the lens comes out.
I think you only have to switch the main dial to the camera logo (shooting Mode) and then press the Disp button, to shoot pictures and if you want to view pictures, you turn the dial to playback Mode (arrow to the right) and press the Disp button.
If it works, no fix, just knowledge about how the camera works. It is all in the manual.

I just purchased a SystemPro Wireless Remote Shutter release for my Nikon D200 camera. How do I set the menu program so the camera and the remote "talk" to one another? Thanks for your help


You need to set the camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. Quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. Delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To choose a shooting mode, press the mode dial lock release and turn the mode dial to the desired setting.

Shooting mode dial?


The mode dial is part of a larger assembly. Here's instructions on replacement of a similar S30. Don't recommend that you try this unless you have some familiarity with electronics, and a lot of patience. Above all keep track of all your screws as they're all different sizes:
