    I accidentally plucked out the cover that covers the battery and memory card. I should have slid it to the side. I ordered a new cover, and tried to put it in, but it doesnt click in, or hold the battery in, or anything.

Hi

That part is part of the battery compartment and requires fairly major surgery to replace. You won't be able to buy it anywhere without buying the complete battery compartment assembly... except from us.

We are a digital camera repair business and we specialize in hard to find parts. (Google: Darntoothysam). I created a listing for your part on the site, but I can't post a link because I can't tell you how to get your camera fixed other than by saying 'just fix it'. Thanks Fixya terms of service rules! (I was told that posting a link was 'illegal' - their words!)

If we can help you with your repair we would be happy to do so, it's why we're here. If we can't then please feel free to email or post asking questions. We are a real digital camera repair business, not some kid in a Gee. Sq... shirt that knows nothing about a camera other than what it says on the box.

Good luck with your repair

Thomas D,

My cannon power shot a75 will not focus. All of the manufacturers symbols are perfectly clear but absolutely no focus when taking a picture.


Have you tried any of the following?

Power Reset

1. Make sure camera is off, and then remove the batteries and memory card.

2. Close the battery door.

3. Press and hold down the on/off button for 1 minute.

4. Release the on/off button, and reinsert the batteries and memory card.

5. Power the camera on.
Settings Reset

Next reset the settings of the camera to the factory default.

1. While the camera is on, press and hold the menu button for approximately 10 seconds.

2. The screen should then display the message "Reset settings to default".

3. "Cancel" will be highlighted so move to the right and highlight "OK".

4. Press the SET button once "OK" has been highlighted.

5. The screen will say "busy" while the settings are returned to the default

Memory card when insert camera show card locked. can I delet the switch for card lock?


Look at the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

When i turn on my cannon sd550 digital camera i get "memory card error" on my screen. this happens even when i put in a different card. any ideas?


First, make sure your camera is designed to use the kind of card you are using. Some of the older Canon digicams will not accept the higher capacity mem cards. For instance, they may accept the 2GB cards but will not accept high capacity 4, 8 or 16GB cards.
You may want to try to format the card in your camera, if you can get it to that point on the menu.

How do i unlock my card in my cannon ixus 75 camera


Remove the card and look for a tiny slide switch on the side of the card. Slide it to the other "unlocked" position, and reinsert it in the camera.

Have a powershot sd550


Hello

If the card works in another camera or another card doesn't work in your camera , the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

Memory card locked


I had the same problem and it took me forever to figure it out! On my memory card there is a tiny slider that slides up and down. Mine was slid to "lock" I just slid it back and it was no longer locked! Sounds simple enough now that you know, huh?
