20 Most Recent Canon "infrared" Power Shot G6 7.1 Mp Digital Camera Questions & Answers

Hi Cayley,

Typically, when an electronic or electro-mechanical device - such as a computer or as in this case - your camera - is powered up; it goes through a "boot up" so to speak. Like your computer, the camera electronics performs some quick, basic checks on the electronic and mechanical systems during the boot up sequence. This often includes checking for the presence of a memory card, battery charge state, connection to a computer via USB cable - and - checking the lens position; and if it can be extended and reversed to a "home" position or not.

Because you're seeing a "lens" message, this is a clue that the camera boot up sequence has detected some sort of problem with the lens. Most often, the problem is tied to the lens not moving or not moving *fully* due to grit or sand lodged between 1) moving parts of the lens or 2) between moving parts of the lens and the stationary parts of the camera body itself. When you turn on the camera, does the lens move in and out - like it did before? If not, that is probably the cause. You can 1) send the camera to be repaired by Canon, 2) have a local repair shop attempt to fix it, 3) replace the camera with new - if it is older than a few years as it may not be worth the cost of investing $$ in old technology - or if this option is your plan, 4) attempt repair yourself. You have nothing to lose - you can try to help the lens extend by pulling while it s"boots" up if it is retracted - or pushing in on it if stuck in an extended position. That is the NORMAL test at boot - to extend then fully retract. You may get it to work, abd save the cost of repair or replacement - or you could damage the mechanism even more.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Good Day

Remove and re-insert the batteries. Might be related to the non-standard accessories or batteries or the non-standard remote connected. Also you can try remove your lens and make sure that the connection is clean, be careful not to touch any of the surface inside the camera as this may lead to damage, if there is no dust or dirt where the lens connects to the camera I suggest you take it to you local dealer for assessment.

Hope you find a solution here

The "Consecutive" shutter release setting is the default for Sports Mode so if you are using that you'll have to just practice a lighter touch on the button. Otherwise, and this is from memory, press "Menu" find "Drive" or a little icon that looks like a small stack of pictures and switch the setting to "S" for Single.

Have you check the memory card? Can you see the image file in the memory card? If not, I think you deleted them accidently, and if you want to get all the photo back, you have to ask recovery for help, know more here:Recover photo from memory card

This may mean that either the catch or spring has broken. Expensive to get repaired - either raise the flash manually, or use an external flash unit in the hotshoe.

You basically decide on the kind of photo you want to take, then follow the instructions in the manual to achieve those results, changing them if necessary to improve the image.

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.

Canon will not fix it unless still under warranty. Unfortunately, not worth paying to have it cleaned professionally because most techs including Canon charge a minimum of $75. That’s more than the camera is worth. If you are ambitious and want to disassemble the lens yourself, fungus can be cleaned with a weak vinegar-water solution. However, if the fungus is old it has already damaged the lens coating. If it is just a tiny speck, better to expose it to direct sunlight that will kill the mold. The speck will remain but not grow.

Sadly the likelihood is now that iPhoto is deprecated, there's going to be no way to do it directly. However, you could try using Adobe's DNG Converter software (free download - yay!) and then see if iPhoto will import those. Because raw files differ from camera to camera and manufacturer to manufacturer, software companies periodically issue new raw interpreters for their photo software. Since iPhoto is defunct, Apple aren't doing this any more. Have you tried Apple's Photos instead? You may need to do a system update to achieve this as 10.9.5 is pretty old now.

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.
