Question about Canon PowerShot A300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Grey screen My camera has not been used since last Christmas - dug it out and put in new batteries. Everything appears to be in order, all menus etc. are still there. However the view screen is all grey and when trying to take picture it flashes but only returns an all grey picture.

Clean , outside of lens, go to menu reset to factory defaults, try another new battery, take out memory card and wipe lightly with alcohol. If none of this works contact or call customer support for brand. You may have dead pixels, if that is the case it's time to buy a new camera. Jimmy

New acer says password incorrect


Try a system recovery, if it has a recovery partition. Remove any madia,DVD, CD, USB, etc. Unplug, remove battery, plug in, push the on/off button, immediately prees and hold the ALT+F-10 if that doesn't work, reboot and use F-10, to load the restore/recovery software, do a factory recovery to return to factory settings. You may want to write down the password and put in a safe location, or put your user name with a administartor password to override.

Sdcard protect: when I plugg on camera an error message appears on screen " SDcard is protected " I tried to change SDcard and the same message related to sdcard appears . I can not unprotect...


SD and SDHC 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.

Problem with the CF card


Do both of these CF cards still function when you connect them to the computer?
Inspect the CF connector on the camera using a flashlight (torch). It's possible that one or more pins on the connector may have been damaged, somehow. If this is the case, the camera will need to be repaired.
Can you still operate the menus after the error message appears? If so, use the menus to reformat the card (see the manual for instructions).

Problems after 1 year of no usage


I would take into a shop and have them look at it. There appears to be something in the electronics that isn't comming up if it isn't working with a new battery or when it's plugged into an electrical outlet.
