Question about Digital Cameras

2 Answers

Canon SD900 selection options not responsive. The selector wheel, Function Set button and menu selector only work from time to time. Even if pressing the ring brings up info to the LCD, nothing can be changed because the Function Button and the Menu button are not active. This is a random problem. Sometime, I can bring all functions back to life by removing and re-inserting the battery and restarting.

    Thank you.

    The camera is less than one year old. It has been in air conditioned residence and never used out of doors. I have a few others, the oldest being a 110 Elph that has been in all sorts of weather. Same as an older S400 that has spent a good deal of its life in my automobile.

    I spoke with Canon tech yesterday and since it is less than a year old, I am to return it to their Illinois service center. Based on 24 years of computer experience, it seems more to me to be a chip issue. (The camera is, after all, a small computer.) This problem has been around since the first few weeks of ownership, but I was not using it very much at the time. Thought is was just my inexperience withe that model. Thank you both for your help.

Sounds like the board has become damp and possibly corroded in certain parts this causing the random effect with the buttons their isnt much you can do unless you can remove the case yourself and give it a good clean but doing this is extremely difficult and could destroy the camera

You first have to enable it in the menus, under the second wrench icon, Live View Settings, On. It only works in the creative modes, Tv, Av, M, and P. Then press the enter button on the selector dial.

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.

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.

SCN Mode on Canon A560


It confused me too. Just go to SCN and hit the function.Set button (the little round button). It brings up a menu and you can switch left or right with the menu controls.
