Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I didn't get a manual with this Canon PS S200 camera from eBay, but had used my sister's S200 camera, etc., and was familiar with this model. I had installed the software (Canon Zoombrowser) that came with her camera onto my computer, and all worked the way I expected with her camera and my computer. So I expected the same action with this auction model. I ordered and printed out an online manual for my "new" S200, and then took pix. I am having no luck transferring the pix from the camera to my computer using the USB cord that accompanied the camera. It seems that the USB cable part that goes into the camera is "backward" compared to what I am used to on hers. The push button part fits into it facing the back of the camera, not the little triangle toward the front of the camera. Maybe it was tampered with, and that is the reason it was on eBay. Also, do you know if the software she has that came with her camera(Canon Zoombrowser), which is still on my PC, is only for her serial # camera or would that not make a difference as long as mine is an S200 also? The error message says the two aren't communicating. Thank you for your help. Mary

MARY,
FIRST, THE SOFTWARE YOU DOWNLOADED SHOULD BE GOOD FOR ALL S200 MODELS. IT'S NOT LIKE THE INFAMOUS MICROSOFT! SECOND, WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO SEE THIS CABLE IT'S HARD TO SAY IF IT IS NOT THE RIGHT CABLE. QUESTION, CAN YOU USE YOUR SISTERS CABLE TO CHECK THE CAMERA? IF NOT, I THINK I'D REPLACE THE CABLE FIRST,SINCE IT SHOULD NOT BE EXPENSIVE. IF THERE ID A CAMERA SHOP IN YOUR TOWN, I'D TAKE THE CAMERA IN AND SEE WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT THE CABLE. WHAT YOU CAN ALSO TRY IS TO SHUT DOWN YOUR COMPUTER, THEN HOOK UP YOUR CAMERA AND TURN IT ON, THEN TURN YOUR COMPUTER ON AND SEE IF IT WILL" FIND " YOUR CAMERA. TRY THESE OR FOR MORE HELP REPLY TO ARCLIGHT1217.

GOOD LUCK!

I am new to the video world and just purchased a Canon HF S200 from a guy here locally it is used but looked to be in great condition and working properly. But less than 15 minutes after the purchase and...


Have you got the user manual? If not, you can download it from www.iusermanual.com.
I am not familiar with you videocam but the mannual shows all of the buttons and functions etc. There are what appears to be at least one critical button on the outer edge of the LCD screen itself. Perhaps this may affect its functions and be causing your problem.
Anyway, have a good look at the manual and be sure you understand the functions of the buttons.
Because everything else works OK it is most likely caused by pressing the wrong button at the wrong time. Alternatively, there may be a bad contact at the connection between LCD screen and camera.

Card locked


So I got the same error message a few weeks ago. I bought a card reader and a software program that is supposed to recover lost/deleted/corrupt files but to no avail.

I have tried the SD card on my sister's camera (same Canon powershot) and it doesnt work. I have tried my sister's SD card on my camera and it does work so it is not my camera. It is clearly the SD card with an error.

What can i do, i cant lose these pics!!

Thanks anyone who might have an idea.

P.S. The SD card itself is UNLOCKED.

All I see is vertical scrolling when I turn the camera on to take a picture. It reminds me how tv's use to scroll years ago, and there was no picture.
