Question about Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

I CAN'T GET THE DATE TO TURN ON. IT WILL LET ME RESET IT, BUT IT WON'T LET ME TURN IT ON. When I go into the menu setting, it shows that the date is turned off and I can not access another menu that will allow me to turn it on. I need to date stamp pictures for work. Thanks for your help.

The date/time stamp only works in "Postcard" resolution. Press the "Func Set" button, then scroll down to the bottom to select postcard resolution.
Then press the menu button. Select the "Camera" menu, then scroll down to the the Date Time Stamp selection to turn it on.

SOURCE: Date stamp

In order to use the date stamp option, the image size (L, M1, M2, M3, S, Postcard) has to be set to Postcard. Press the Func/Set button, scroll down to the image size icon (lower left corner), then scroll over to Postcard, and press the Func/Set button again.

SOURCE: date stamp will not show on my camera

I found the solution o-line. All I had to do was switch the camera to the 'postcard' mode and instant presto, I was able to access the date stamp mode. I want to express my thanks to the (I don't remember who) person who posted the solution.

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!!

How do I change the time on the Brother 2820 fax?


This was taken directly from the Brother 2820 Manual:

Setting the Time

When the machine is not in use it will display the date and time. If you set up the Station ID the date and time displayed by your machine will be printed on every fax you send. If there is a power failure, you may have to reset the date and time. No other settings will be affected.

1 Press Menu/Set, 0, 2.
[2. Date/Time]
2 Enter the last two digits of the year.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Enter two digits for the month.
Press Menu/Set.
(For example, enter 09 for September,
or 10 for October.)
4 Enter two digits for the day.
Press Menu/Set.
(For example, enter 06 for 6th.)
5 Enter the time in 24-Hour format.
Press Menu/Set.
(For example, enter 15:25 for 3:25 P.M.)
6 Press Stop/Exit.
The LCD now shows the date and time
whenever the machine is idle in Fax
mode.
When the machine is in Sleep mode, the
LCD shows Sleep. (See Sleep Time on
page 2-8.)


Turning on Automatic Daylight Savings Time

You can set the machine to change automatically for Daylight Savings Time. It will reset itself forward one hour in the Spring and backward one hour in the Fall. Make sure you have set the correct date and time in the Date/Time setting.

1 Press Menu/Set, 1, 5.
[5. Auto Daylight]
2 Press Up Arrow or Down Arrow to select On (or Off).
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.
