Tip & How-To about Cameras

Digital cams not functioning/frozen

Most digital cameras regardless of manufacturer have been known to stop functioning entirely. This is most often attributed to the fact that the battery contacts within the battery compartment have a film on them that must be cleaned. This is easily accomplished by "dampening" a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol and cleaning the contacts. Shortly after, blow into the compartment lightly to disperse any remaining fluid. This will solve your problem .

My Canon A80 just stopped taking pictures and displays all attempts as a black picture with no detail. everything appears to function normally as well as lense zooming, Could it be the sensor that is gone as it has not been dropped or subjected to water or moisture


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

Affected cameras with this problem include: A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/V3/300/400/430/500/II/IIs, IXY Digital 200a/300a/320/400/450/500/30/30a

Whats the difference between Canon EOAS 550D /Rebel / non rebel? Which is better camera?


Identical Canon models are sometimes marketed under different names in different parts of the world. Rebel cameras are known in America and EOS cameras are known in Europe. For example the EOS 550D is called Rebel T2i in America. They are in fact the same camera they just don't have the same name.

hello ..my focus function has stopped working..


no new camera is required, you have just changed the settings and it can be modified if you just calmly go through the manual given to you by the manufacturer.
