Think you may have bent a card pin. Remove the card and the camera's batteries. Look in the card slot for any bent pins. If you see one, don't fret, it may be fixable. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible (one from the dollar store is fine for this). Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster. Take a breather in between if needed.

It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's there, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.

If there are no bent pins in the slot, then the next obvious thing to try is a different CF card.

Canon Powershot A3400 won't turn on


Hi Jessie,

I looked at the troubleshooting section of the Canon Powershot A3400 Is manual and it suggested the following:

  • Confirm that your are using the correct type of battery, and that there is sufficient charge (p. 163). Sounds like you did this.
  • Confirm that the battery is inserted facing the correct way (p.17)
  • Confirm that the memory card/battery cover is fully closed (p.18)
  • Dirty battery terminals reduce battery performance. Try cleaning the terminals with a cotton swab and reinserting the battery a few times.
The manual also said that the batteries can deplete quickly in low temperatures. "Try warming the batteries a little by putting them in your pocket, for example, ensuring that the terminals do not touch any metal objects."

You can find the manual online here: http://aggregate.org/CACS/psa4000is-a3400is-a2400is-a2300-a1300-a810-cug-c-en.pdf

I also uploaded the manual to FixYa's Canon Powershot A3400 Is Product Page:http://www.fixya.com/support/p2861926-canon_powershot_a3400_16_megapixel_16_mp

Lastly, you can also check out Canon's Service & Support page for the camera: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_a_series/powershot_a3400_is#ServiceAndSupport

Best of luck!

I purchased a 4GB memory card for use in my A95. I occasionally get a 'corrupted file' error message. Is it possible the card is too big for this model? The card was formatted.


Yes, 4GB card is too big for Canon A95 camera as its hardware does not support such big memory.
Put max 2GB or less memory card in this camera.
Thanks.

Took a few photos, switch off, 5 minutes later switched back on, blank screen but can view playback and menus


Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.

2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.

3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck

4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.

5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

Lens open can not shut down E18


Sometimes it just gets stuck - With the camera on go to the view mode and give it a little jiggle with your thumb and finger. Also - a can of compressed air can loosen up what ever might be stuck in there.

Wont turn on


It may be the SD memory card causing the problem. I just bought a G7. When I turned it on without an SD card, no problem. I put it my old cheap SD card and it wont turn on. I take out the memory card and battery, then insert the Canon SD card and battery and turn it on, no problem.
Hope this helps someone.
