When you turn on the Camera it goes through a diagnostic self check, this includes the range finder indicated by the green light, next would be the lens operation. Question: when it reaches the point in the process immediately following the Green Light, does the lens start to move and then your camera locks up or does the lens initiate in a manner as you have come to expect these last few years? Typically, your problem indicates an issue with the motor powering the lens controls. This would be consistent with the age of your camera as well. What to do then? Visit a good professional camera store. Every city has one, and they are easy to find by their supplies they offer to the pros who still use darkrooms to develop and print from analog cameras. Their staff should be able to help you diagnose your camera, whether you purchased it there or not. The ability to have and hold your camera and then provide a diagnoses is much more easy than responding to a post here.

Still, reply with the power on cycle of your camera and the function or lack of this from your lens.

Regards,

Dear Sir/Madam,

Concur with the bad/dead battery scenario. Try to change the battery. Contact with manufacturer if u have warranty. The manual indicates that in order to fully charge the battery you need to charge it one hour after the light on the charger stops blinking.
The first impression of a battery can be misleading if you play a lot with it in order to learn all the controls, furthermore the batteries only seem to have their full capacity after a few charging/uncharging cycles. A fully charged battery gives few hundred shots, without flash.

Thanks
Good luck

Click the Display button few times until the display turns back to normal it might work sometime if not it must be a more serious issue.

You need to contact the canon because this suggests a loose connector in the internal board of the camera.

Hi,

I suggest you to once try switching over to 2500 mAh Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries. you will see a difference.Digital cameras with zoom lens need more power than what can be supplied by ordinary batteries.

Olympux sp600uz flash does not work


You mean, you see the flash logo on the screen, indicating the flash is charged, and then the flash does not fire at all?
Or does the flash logo not appear on the screen?
If the flash does not charge, this could be, because the batteries are low. Or when it takes a very long time before the logo comes on, same reason.
If your camera is on automatic and you did not select flash off, the flash should charge, when you pop it up. The logo on the screen should come on, and when not enough light is available, the flash should fire when you press the button.
Everything in the camera can go defective, but the flash on your camera is made, to last at least as long as the rest of the camera. So make sure you are doing everything correct (like in the manual) before you think the flash is defect.
The manual is still online.

No wireless connection for laptop. Linksys router - model #wrt160n v2


you can run a direct line to that router and go to the cisco web site and get the information you need to run that router. its a pdf format and is 2.56 Meg. Try this

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It

lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that

the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the

Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup

mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated

the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.

To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.

The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to

indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes

it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's

Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.

Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered

on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this

LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.

DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will

remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when

the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or

receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.

Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the

Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.

Good luck

Waste inki absober is full. The indicator orange


You can remove the top of the printer to remove and clean the pad or reset the printer and continue without cleaning.

These are the instructions which worked for me on my Canon pixma ip470 and has work on many other Canon models:

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

6) Power off then back on and test.

Flash will not fire on Canon SD780 IS Elph


The flash circuit is defective. As it's only a couple weeks old, recommend just exchanging it for another from your place of purchase. You shouldn't be attempting repair while its under warranty.

Canon sd10 elph , screen is black,turn it on or off still black


Try inserting and removing the A/V cable plug a few times (that TV cable that came with the camera that hardly anyone uses). There's a little contact switch inside that turns off the screen when the cable is inserted. Sometimes the switch can become a little dirty with corrosion and can turn off the screen. Inserting and removing the cable plug a few times can sometimes clean the contact switch. Good luck!

Click here for iP90 ink tank install procedure.

Click here for instruction on contacting Canon Support. They have been very helpful. If it turns out that one of your ink tanks is faulty, they have replaced them at no cost in the past.

Hope this helps.
