Question about Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Just bought it... 'My colours' option is not accessible.

I followed my manual but when I scroll down the left hand side icon column... it skips that option (which is set to off) my metering mode, and my flash exposure as well.
What should I do?
Thanks in advance.

Those options are only available when the camera is in P, Tv, Av, or Manual modes. When in the Auto mode or one of the scene modes, the camera sets these options. (See pages 206 - 209 in the manual.)

The scroll bar in my laptops' touch pad isn't working.


The scroll on your laptop is controlled by the trackpad installed on the system.

If you are having problems with the scroll on your laptop's trackpad, there is something you can do before you take it into a computer repair shop.


Updating the driver to the trackpad will enable the scroll if it is not working at all.

Once the driver is updated, your scroll should work again.


You can access the driver through the Device Manager on your laptop.


Click the "Start" button, then click the "Search" option.


Type "Device Manager" into the search bar and press the "Enter" button.

Click on the "Device Manager" icon from the menu, then scroll down to the "Track Pad" icon on the left side of the screen.


Click on the icon, then click the "Driver" tab at the top of the window. Click the "Update" driver option from the window.


Wait for the new driver to install on your computer.


This should take about two minutes to complete.

A window will appear telling you that the driver has been installed.


Put your fingers on the touchpad to move the mouse around on the screen.


Hope this helps.

Desktop, accer computer, can't unmute microphone? How do you unmute the microphone?


Hi queen17186...
Go to the bottom right hand side of your computer screen, look for the speaker icon, double click the speaker icon, a window will open and show you the volume control, make sure none of those are checked "mute".
Then go to the top of that window left hand side and click on "options"then click "properties" scroll down and make sure "microphone" is not checked.
This should clear your microphone problem.

I have a canon powershot a560. i would like the date on the pictures. i followed the manual which says turn on date stamp in the menu but it skips over the date stamp so i can't change it. any suggestions?


When you turn your camera on, there is a screen which appears in the viewfinder. Push the FUNC SET button and then scroll down the column on the left of your viewfinder until you come to the one with the letters M1 M2 M3 S, etc to the right. Then select the one called "Postcard 1600x1200" by scrolling to the right. Your camera is then in the post card mode. You can then go to the date stamp in the menu and your camera will not skip over it any longer! EUREKA!!
