Do you mean when playing video back on the camera? If so, when the video is playing, press on the top of the wheel, the part with the triangle pointing upwards (up-arrow). You should see the small volume level indicator get an increasing number of bars and the volume will increase.

This is an OLD camera that uses CF cards - the earliest type of card storage. I have provided a link to the manual for the camera - it is considered as Powershot S20 based on your PC1002 number. On page 21 of the manual (page 24 of the pdf) there is a table listing the compatible cards. Another Canon link (provided) states you can use CF Type 1 cards.

Can you access the images on your computer ? If you can, then the fault lies in the camera. If you cannot, then the card may have become corrupted and you will have to rely on your backup copies.

Give the camera some time. Don't remove the battery till the reset is done. I hope your battery was charged before you started the reset.
If the battery runs out of power, you must charge it comlpete, before putting it in again. I hope the reset went well. If not only try a reset with a fully charged battery.

The camera's internal date/time "backup" battery is supposed to maintain the date/time for about 3 weeks with the camera turned off. If the camera is not used for a longer period, the date/time will need to be reset. If you are having to reset sooner than that, it is likely that the internal battery (not user replacable on most models) has failed.

it could be a software problem. if the camera doesn't get the battery's information this will occur the center terminal of the battery must be clean, similarly the contact inside the camera.
if it works for a little while, try to reset to default manner.

An odometer usually indicates a distance traveled. This may be showing if you've got GPS enabled.

I'm assuming that the camera has worked properly in the past and that this is a new issue. You've replaced the batteries with fully charged ones and they are the correct, recommended batteries. I ask because some prefer Alkaline, some Lithium, some rechargeable, etc. Also ensure that the individual battery output power as listed on the battery, is in line with your camera's requirements. Your owner's manual will provide this information.
If everything is correct and you still have same issue, it could be that the camera's internal computer has gone bad. Contact customer service and even if you no longer have a valid warranty, they can still refer you to one of their authorized service centers.

It works just the same as you view your photos, only the video clip will show player buttons at the bottom. Use the left/ right and select buttons of the camera to play the video clips.

Is it powering on? Try to change battery.

Canon PowerShot... | Answered on Nov 06, 2015

Sounds like you ISO setting (the 'film' speed) is set WAY too high. The brightness outdoors is causing the camera to not be able to expose correctly within the parameters of lens aperture and shutter speed. Try setting the ISO at 200.
