Question about Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Repeated Date/Time prompt.

Camera is less than a week old and every time I power it up, it prompts me for date/time. I fill in valid info, and proceed to shot. However when I plug into my computer to transfer photos it has forgotten date and therefore categorization is horribly invalid. Please help me resolve this issue!

Hopefully, you have already resolved this, but if not...

What you will need is to replace the date/time battery for your camera. It is a 3V battery that you can purchase anywhere for $1-$5 and it slides into a small compartment located in your main battery compartment. If you look into the battery area on your camera, you will see a little tab that has CR1220 or something like that. Slide this out and you will see what I am referring to. These batteries should not have to be replaced more than once a decade, however sometimes in rare occurrences, they will die prematurely. It's an inconvenience, but an easy one to remedy.

Hope this helps!

I NEED TO SET THE TIME AND DATE ON MY LEXMARK X5470 ALL IN ONE.


Set the printer to factory defaults. Caution you will lose all stored custom settings. You will then be prompted to set the language, country, date, time and time format, your fax number, and name on your printer..

You can reset your printer to the original settings by first turning off the power. Then p
ress the Start Color (green button) + X and keeping the buttons pressed down. Press the Power On button once to power the All-In-One on. Continue to hold the Start Color (green button) + X buttons for the next ten seconds.

When the prompt appears , release the buttons and follow the prompts on the display to choose your language, country or region code, date, time, and fax number.

Use the forward and backward arrows to select your language. Use the checkmark to save the setting.

Use the keypad to enter the date, time, fax number, owner's name, and press the checkmark after each selction to save.

For future reference support information for your printer may be found here.

How do you set the time and date so that each photo will have it posted


Firstly, set time and date in the camera:
1. Display MENU.
2. Click on each of the tabs until youfind a dropdown with Date/Time on it.
3. Click on this and follow the prompts.
4. On completion press OK. The date and time will be effective from the time you press OK.
I am not aware of any Canon camera that does enable the entering of time/date on all images.
However, it is recorded in the EXIF data that all digital cameras record with every image.
You can use ZoomBrowser - a software program that comes on the CD with Canon Cameras - to write the date/time on selected images. The date and time written will be the actual date and time the image was recorded on your camera i.e. the date and time you took the photo.
With the image open you should be able to find the time/date option.

Please can you tell me how to change time and date. thank you. Wendy


The current time and date are shown on the display when the machine is on and ready for use (standby mode). The time and date are printed on all faxes you send.
Note: If power to the machine is cut off for over 30 minutes, when power is restored, the machine prompts you to reset the time and date.
1. Press Setup. The display shows the first setup menu; FAX NUMBER/NAME.
2. Press left arrow or right arrow until 'TIME/DATE SETUP' appears, then press
Start/Enter. The display asks you to choose a date format.
3. Press Start/Enter.
4. Press left arrow or right arrow until you find the desired date format, then press
Start/Enter.
If you select USA, the time and date appears in the order of month, day, then year. The EUROPE format will be displayed in the order of day, month, then year.
The display shows the currently set time and date using the selected date format.
5. Enter the correct time and date using the number keypad.
Day = 01~31
Month = 01~12
Year = four digits
Hour = 00~23
Minute = 00~59
You can also use left arrow or right arrow to move the cursor under the digit you want
to correct, then enter a new number.
6. Press Start/Enter when the time and date on the display is correct. If you enter an invalid number, the machine beeps and does not proceed to the next step. If this happens, just reenter the correct number.
The display shows the time and date you have set, then returns to
Standby mode.

Time


This should take care of it for you.

NOTE: The current date and time are displayed on the LCD when the machine is ON and ready for use (Standby mode). The date and time are printed on all faxes that are sent. When the machine is installed for the first time, the LCD will prompt for the date and time to be set.
  1. Press the [Setup] button on the Control Panel. 'Fax Number / Name' will be displayed on the LCD.
  2. Press the left or right arrow button until 'Time / Date Setup' is displayed, then press the [Start / Enter] button to access the Time / Date Setup menu. The LCD will prompt you to select a Date Format.
  3. Press the [Start / Enter] button.
  4. Press the left or right arrow button to select the required date format, then press [Start / Enter]. The LCD will display the currently set date and time using the selected date format and prompt to set the month. The cursor will be under the first digit of the month and the number will blink.

    NOTE: If you select USA, the date will be displayed in the format of Month-Day-Year. If you select Europe, the date will be displayed in the format of Day-Month-Year.

  5. Enter the correct date using the numeric keypad on the Control Panel. Each time you enter the appropriate number, the LCD will prompt for the next item to be entered in the following order: month, day, year, hour, and minute.
  6. Enter the correct time in 24-hour format using the numeric keypad. For example, enter 22:30 for 10:30 P.M. If an invalid number is entered, the LCD will not proceed to the next step. Re-enter the correct number.
  7. Press the [Start / Enter] button to save the setting and return to the Standby mode. The LCD will display the date and that has been set.
