    I'm about to return this pro1 to future shop thanks to buying the 3 year warranty!! Love this camera "when it works" but lately it turns off by itself after I shoot (with a full battery) and I have to take the battery out to turn it back on. Then it will turn itself off again after I shoot and obviously I have lost the photo. I have not seen anyone else's complaints like mine. Very very frusutrating!! My powershot is almost 2 years old. I found it odd that canon only kept it in inventory for a year before replacing this model.

It probably had a problem with something which entered the back of the lens and the lens stuck outside.

Canon 60D playback images turning up black


Did you switch to Tv (shutter mode) and took pictures for several seconds? like in the dark? Because saving the picture can take as long as the shutter time was.
Before panic. (Actually you never should panic) check your camera in automatic mode. And make sure you did not select any power save action, that puts your display on dark while shooting.
But always be sure your battery is charged and check its capacity. In the menu yo can check under the wrench symbol, when you select Battery info. Page 268 of the manual.
Working with a bad battery can damage the camera in the end.

Trying to upload photos to my Apple computer. Does the Canon have a setting for uploading photos?Thx


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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Cannot delete pictures from camera,says they are protected


Check the card to make sure the little tab on the upper left side is not in the down (lock) position. If not, look at the pictures in playback. If they show a key, then you will have to unlock them in the playback mode. there is an unlock option in the menu. You will have to unlock each one.

My Canon Powershot SD1000 has a fully charged battery but won't turn on at all.


Does your camera turn on when it's in playback mode? I have a similiar problem with mine. It only turns on in playback mode.

It probably has a battery that can't hold a charge to it and needs to be replaced. Those batteries can be purchased at Canon using this link:

You might be able to find a less expensive one on EBay, Radio Shack, or Batteries +

Canon powershot pro1 will not turn on


You have to try another battery to know for sure if it is bad. I have three batteries so that I can rotate while I am working with the camera.

Make sure that the mode switch on the cover is in the playback position. Unfortunately, I don't have a source for new switches.
