I am having trouble getting the date to show on the pictures.  I have replaced batteries and the date is showing up correctly on the back of the camera with a dash above it on the far right side showing the day and time format yet it won't show on the pictures.  

Any Ideas?

I would be really thankful if someone could scan a copy and email the manual to me.

Thanks

The little bar in the top right corner has to be on, is it?

If yes, if you open door and short over the 2 little metal posts above battery the little light should come on in little window to the left of battery, if no light and the battery is new you have problems.

Check the two metal post are not bent, I had one bent slightly would not make contact to fire the date on the film.
