Does it have a self timer - check the manual?
Does it work at all with a broken screen?
Time for a replacement - camera that is.

Take a look at your manual. I checked the manual in this site
and on page 11 and 12 you will see something about where the self-timer is. Also check out page 28 of your manual. Here's the specific line at the bottom.
If you operate the Power button, Self-timer button and shutter button during the self-timer
operation, the self-timer function is cancelled.

LEt me know if this helps.

The link on FixYa to the HB65R Intermatic timer Manual seems to be broken. Do you still have it?

Fixya does not have HB65 manual posted.
Open following link to identify timer and download manual in English.
If this is not your timer, add a comment with clear description of timer, or in-focus photo of timer posted on flicker, so I can locate possible manual.

I replaced my batteries and it still read Lowbat. Is the unit gone bad?

Unit might be bad.
EJ500 has 1 year limited warranty.
Try resetting timer: hold down on-off button and push-and-release reset button.
Keep holding on-off button until display screen changes.
This action will reset timer, and if 12:00 is flashing then timer will probably accept programming.
Reprogram timer.

Tried to reset the intermatic timer. But, the timer won't turn off

You posted under self-adjusting Intermatic, which I assume is ST01C
Add a comment if you have different timer.

I had the same problem resetting my ST01C because I was pushing reset button without holding down ON-OFF button.
But my timer is fairly new and hasn't malfunctioned.
A lot of folks write-in about ST01C that just doesn't work any more.

To reset timer: hold down ON-OFF button, and then use paper clip and push reset for full three seconds.
Release reset but keep holding ON-OFF.
Keep holding ON-OFF button until INIT shows on screen.
Release ON-OFF and wait for timer display to show.

If timer display doesn't restore, then change battery with new CR2.
People write in after changing battery and report timer never came back to life.
So these timers are hard to figure. ST01C has 1 year limited warranty.

To re-program timer for specific hours instead of dawn-dusk, there are clear steps on link below

How do you turn on self timer on a konica dimage z6

Okay - I felt like an idiot but the instruction manual sucks for this!!!!!! Press the menu button and stay on the first screen - Drive mode will probably say single and have image information listed under it. Use the down button and highlight drive mode - press the right button and it will change to single and under that it will say self-timer. Now use the down button and highlist self - timer and press the enter button. Now you use the self-timer. Once you take a picture, the camera will revert back to single image, it will not stay in self-timer mode, so you have to go this process everytime to use self timer. Hope this helps and happy picture taking!!!!!!!!!!

Self Timer Operation

Easy, in camera mode, push the menu/ok button, use the left and right arrows to display the self timer mode. There are only 3 options on the menu. (self timer,cont,option). Once self timer is on the screen, use the up arrow to pick a short or long self timer.

Once it is set, compose your picture and press the release button as normal, the self timer will do the rest

Self timer

There are two identical sized small buttons on the top. Push the one nearest the picture-taking button until it says self-timer. Push the picture-taking button. The display should show a countdown until the timer takes the picture.

Kodak easy share self-timer

You use the the self timer as follows:
(1) Push the Menu button on back of camera
(2) Scroll through the Menu items using the small joystick located in the center of your circular selector switch, until you highlight the self timer ON/OFF area
(3) Push the small joystick straight in, like a button
(4) Use the joystick to highlight the on position
(5) Push the joystick button
(6) & just snap the picture as usual.
You will have to use the viewfinder instead of the screen to point the camera.
Hope this helps
