Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Not Switching between Shooting and Playback

Often, when the switch is in "shooting" mode, the camera switches to "playback" mode after a second or so and I can't take a picture. I suspect the mode switch needs repaired but not sure who does this or how costly (now out of warranty.

Canon powershot only boots in playback mode

You could try to help the lens coming out if you hear the motor trying to. Or hold the camera with the lens downwards to let gravity help as well. Hope that will help. Or the lens mechanism will be faulty and the whole lens needs to be replaced. But such a repair might not be worth it because of the costs and the value of the camera.

Hi, I have a Canon Powershot A700 digital camera and I am facing a problem with it. The 'Mode Switch' button, which changes the mode from Shoot/Record mode to Play/View mode is not working....

If you have the manual for this camera turn to page 15.
This tells you how to switch between Shooting Mode and Playback Mode.
This is achieved simply by pressing the DISP button.
This button is located below and to the left of the FUNC/SET button.
Pressing DISP repeatedly toggles between Shooting Mode and Playback Mode.
I would suggest you try these steps with your Mode Switch in both positions alternately.

Shooting/playback mode switch

in the end it was my memory card which suddenly went faulty.after formatting it, (see above added comment) it worked for some pictures then i switched to playback and this time it said memory card error and shut down. well if it would have said this in the first place would have saved a lot of trouble i almost threw the thing away.(the camera) so i puts a new card inside and its working like new, all the playback i can handle. goes to show its not always as bad as it looks with a little patience.....merci

Shooting mode will not operate

Your camera has a defective CCD imager. Please return the camera to Canon in New Jersey and they will replace the CCD at no charge to you. This is a known issue and should be covered under extended warranty. Good luck my friend. Joe Weibel
