Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Touch [MENU] to bring up the menu. Touch the toolbox icon. Touch the wrench-and-hammer icon. Select the third item on the menu.

Please make sure that the Camera is fully charged.

Please check if the Menu items in the Camera are accessible.

If accessible, please try initializing the Camera and check if that helps.

To initialize the Camera :

Please press MENU button of the Camera.
Then, Select the SETTINGS Menu (Briefcase icon).
After that, please select the MAIN SETTINGS (Wrench Hammer symbol).
Now, please select the INITIALIZE option.
Then, select OK.

The Camera will ask for initial settings of date and Time and language.

If the issue is unresolved after performing the above steps, the Camera has to be serviced.
Please contact the Authorized Service Center.

Press the MENU button to display the menu. Use down to select the toolbox, then press O (that's the center button on the multiselector). Use the cursor keys to select the wrench and hammer, then press O. Select the second item on that menu--that should be "Language". One of the choices should say "English" in English. Select that one and press O.

Press MENU to exit the menu.

This may be due to the CCD Image Sensor failure in the Camera.
To confirm the issue, please check if the previously captured images are displaying normally. The previously captured images and icons will get displayed normally if the CCD issue is there in the Camera.
If this happens only with the live view, then try Initializing the Camera.

The Initialize option can be done only if the Menu of the Camera is accessible. To access Initialize select MENU-->SETTINGS-->MAIN SETTINGS-->INITIALIZE-->OK.

The RESET button is located at the lower right side of the control button. To reset the camera, press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

You may also try power resetting the camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally.

If the issue is not resolved after resetting, service may be required.
Thanks for using FixYa.

English is in there...you'll have to scroll through the menu and all the sub-menus (I know....it's tedious) until you find the word "english"...when you do, click ok/select/menu and your language will change to english.

time and date are not superimposed on 2006 cameras and later. However it can be printed:

sp.gif sp.gif Current camera models (after 2006) do not have a superimpose function to display the time or date stamp on pictures. However, the time and date can be printed on images from a computer using Picture Motion Browser software. Additionally, if the camera is compatible with Canon® PictBridge™ technology, the time or date can be added to a picture by a printer that also has built-in PictBridge technology.
NOTE: When time and date stamp information is superimposed on an image file, it cannot be removed without editing or cropping the image. Therefore, the function to superimpose the time and date stamp was removed from newer-model cameras to prevent users from accidentally overlaying the information on images when the feature was inadvertently turned on.
