Greetings bpm123,

My suggestion is to simply turn the date time stamp off in the setup menu. In reviewing the instruction manual, it appears you can obtain instructions on how to do this starting on page 21.

I hope this helps!

Thank you,

Dorothy

When I turn on the camera, it ask me to set date and time


You can try and get a specialist repairer to change the battery, these are precision items and difficult to repair yourself. I would just live with it.

Date and time won't stay set


Had the same problem. The problem is a small button cell that needs to be replaced. From Canon's support page:

I have to set the date everytime I switch it on


On this camera you have a supplemental litte battery that is just beside the AA batteries. If you pull on the little tab that says CR 1220 you will find a battery that looks like a battery watch. Just replace it, go back into your date/time settings and you should be good to go! It worked for me!

Canon Powershot A560. Just recently everytime I turn on my camera I have to re-set the time and date. (which will only last while camera is on - otherwise defaults to all 0's). This becomes an issue...


Open your battery door. See this picture. Notice the little door saying CR1220? Pry it open with your fingernail. The enclosed CR1220 battery is the camera's "watch" battery for time and date. Sounds like it may be "time" for a replacement. Take the battery to your local drugstore to purchase a replacement. Don't know why, but drugstores seem to have this battery at a more reasonable price (~$3) than W-Mart or other retail store (~$7).

Ixus 430 will take photos when flash is turned off, but will not take photos when flash or redeye is selected


Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't take a picture when the shutter button is pressed, or with an inoperative flash. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try. (Hint, make sure that all the screws around the perimeter of the case are present and firmly seated.)

Lost CD for my PowerShot A410


Please see the following post, as it outlines a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos:

Also on the bottom left corner of your camera, there's a tiny light grey sliding door. Pry it open with your fingernails to reveal a CR1220 button battery. Yep, this is the battery for your camera's clock, and it's likely gone to a better place. You can get a replacement battery for it at your local drugstore for a few bucks.

I have a new Canon PowerShot A570 IS and can't figure out how to get the Time and Date to show. When I go to menu and come to the time & date (That says Off) it skips past It wont light up so I can put...


In order to embed the date in the photo, the camera has to be in the "Postcard" mode. That's on the same menu as the picture size -- L, M1, M2, M3, S, Postcard. Once set for Postcard mode, the date/time can be turned on.
