Question about Canon PowerShot A620 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Adjusting date and time

Hi.
I have a problem with adjusting date and time on my PowerShot A580. It's a completely new camera with new batteries, but it often asks to adjust data and time again (though I did it many times before it). When I adjust it, it stays in the memory for a few minutes (I can push the on/off button without needing to adjust date/time), but it asks adjusting again. I have no idea what the problem can be, because the machine doesn't always ask the adjusting.
Can anybody help me?
Thanks in advance!

    If the date battery has a code CR1220, then I see it. I tried to fix its position in the holder, and it seems it works! Thank you very much!

    Thanks for this answer, you saved my life. My camera was driving me nuts asking for date reset every few minutes!

    Did you put in the date battery in your new camera? It fits in a holder right next to the regular batteries. If so, you may need to put in a new date battery, as this is what 'powers' the clock in the camera.

According to Canon, the backup memory lithium battery (interal) recharges off the main AA batts that you put in... the manual says it takes about 4 hours to charge this battery.
When not in use, leave the AA batts in the camera .. see if this helps keep the date/time memory!

How to print pics with the date stamp from canon A580


The date stamp feature on this camera will only work in postcard mode- resolution set to 2M (1600 x 1200) and compression set to fine. You have to set the picture mode to that first. You also have to set the date and time if it isn't set already.

To set the mode quickly, set the mode switch to camera, turn the mode dial to A (auto), then press Func. button, scroll down to the "L", scroll across to the mountains with the clock dial, then press the Disp. button to turn date prinitng on and off.

A580 wont switch on with new correctly inserted batteries


Check for battery current ratings, Canon cameras need AA batteries with current rating above 1200 mAh, I use Energizer rechargeable batteries for my Canon Powershot SX110 IS. The batteries last more if we use the flash option wisely.

If you've replaced the date battery, then the camera is defective. Being only a month old, first recommend seeing if your retailer will exchange it. If not, Canon will fix for free under warranty. Call 1-800-OK-CANON.

Canon A450 internal battery problem?


There are cameras with 'fixed' internal batteries to maintain date/time they are long lived and not usually replaceable.
If this is such a model and it is new then a replacement should be forth coming from the vendor or Canon.
The vendor is the first stop then Canon support
