Question about Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a Canon Powershot A560. The date and time stamp do not work. I checked the manual and it says to replace the battery located under the flip-up panel on the left side of the camera. I can not remove the cover plate. Where can I get help to fix this problem? I need the camera on October 13th.

Think your problem is that you are looking in the wrong spot. Don't know why your manual is telling you to look there (are you sure your manual is for the A560)?
Your CR1220 date/time battery is located in the regular battery compartment. Look right beside your AA batteries. You'll see a little flap labeled "CR1220". Slide this open with your fingernail, and take the little coin battery down to your local drugstore to buy a replacement.

    Also, for most Canon cameras, for date/time stamp to work (be selectable) you need to be in "Postcard" resolution.

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).

Time date stamp only works and is selectable in "postcard" (1200 pixel width) resolution. First select this resolution, then time date stamp should be selectable in the menus.

I am trying to add the date/time stamp so that it appears on the picture and can't seem to do this.I have the Cannon Power Shot A560


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

My 2 yr old Powershot A560 is not accepting new batteries. The lense telescopes and the lcd briefly lights up with the red battery symbol flashing. I can preview photos taken, but I cannot take any new...


The battery you found (CR1220) is for the camera memory.IE time and date.Chances are the batteries that were installed are dead.Also check the contacts on either end of the batteries and clean if needed.
