You don't.

Dots per inch (dpi) is an output parameter when printing your pictures. It's often determined by the printer and its driver.

The camera has no idea what printer(s) you are using. Since it has to put something in the dpi field, it selects 72. Most cameras do the same.

The dpi will change depending on the size of the print.

You can change the dpi field using any good photo editing program.

Amazingly, I can not even find an image of this device even at the canon support sites. I have encountered an image of a purported support service manual covering the z90 as well as the z60 but the links tend to point to suspicious sources which might or might not bilk you. I can only suggest you contact canon support in the UK to see if they might provide some information. The Canon support sites do not even offer a brochure or FAQ about such. What little information I encounter suggests the machine pre-dated Windows 7 and seems to have used 32 bit software, at least originally.

You might have to search forums for information about this device if Canon is unresponsive. I can't find out enough about it to write anything else possibly useful. There do seem to be other models of this ColorPass device mentioned at the Canon sites. Sorry.

in some cases, Windows Media Player will require an appropriate codec to properly play video (and even music files). Here you would need mov codec for Window Media Player.
You can add MOV codec and update others exclusively for Windows Media Player:
* Launch WMP and click "Help"-> "About Windows Media Player"-> "Technical Support Information"-> "Video Codecs"to view all the codecs and file formats supported by the respective codec. Or you can try Leawo Blu-ray Player whichcan support most formats including MOV.

Get a microfiber cloth (piece of cloth normally sold with reading glasses) and wipe on the lens with it. This will remove the smudge/ dirt/ finger prints etc. on the lens.You have to switch on the camera so the lens is extended and reachable.

Have you checked the lens to see if auto focus is turned on? Sometimes the switch can get accidentally turned to the manual focus position.

First of all, un-signed questions will attract few or no help so next time do it right.

Secondly, your camera needs service. You can't do much on your own so send it off to a service provider.

Maybe the charger is not working. Can you check it with a multimeter? Or the camera was damaged, or some blown fuse.
