GO to the Canon site and you will see you need a new CR1220 battery for you A530. It is under the same cover as the AA batteries.

How do I print out the date on a picture for a Canon A530?


The date stamp will only work when the camera's resolution is set to postcard mode. Press Func/set, scroll down to the bottom, then across to the icon with the clock and mountain. It will say "postcard". Press Func/set again. Then press Menu, scroll down to "Date stamp" and across to select date or date and time, then press menu again

Setting date with each use of camera


n your battery compartiment is a small cover labeled CR1220.

PLEASE READ MANUAL on how to open it.

Behind that cover you will find a coin shaped battery, provably type CR1220.

PLEASE READ MANUAL on how to remove it.

Get a replacement battery (watch store/ camera store/...)

PLEASE READ MANUAL on how to install it.

Power on camera, set date and time and DONE!

Setting Date/Time on Polaroid a530


I contacted Polaroid help desk and they were clueless. They said there is no way to set the time after messing around with the camera for 10 minutes.

When you pull the photos off the camera it does record a date and time. I believe they forgot to add the option in the setup menu so you cannot get to it. I asked for them to send me a differant camera and the help desk rep laughed.

I guess thats what I get for buying a cheap camera.

Date/time stamp control in Menu won't allow access


In many cameras these settings depend on the shooting mode. Did you change the shooting mode? If so, return to your normal shooting mode and the function should be available again.

If this doesn't fix your problem I need to know if you have your camera's user manual. If I can find the solution in your user manual I need to know if you can read the steps in your own manual or if I need to provide you a link to read the manual online.

Date on pictures


To get the date imprinted on pictures, the size (L, M1, M2, S, Postcard) has to be set to Postcard, and the Date Stamp option has to be turned on in the Recording Menu.
