SOURCE: Canon A95 gone dead

I ain't so lucky I'm in the UK too!!!! Generally speaking the cost pf packing, shipping repair, at any level is well on the way to the price of the next more recent higher specification device. Judging by the way the Megapixels go up by the week seemingly, settling for a replacement camera is usually the best option. I had a cheap[old] Fuji come my way because it had gone blurred and blue - sure sign of a CCD failure as this was at some time the subject of a recall for the problem I checked out Fuji Their response was to say no longer repaired but has a 1/3 off a new camera when I quoted a reference number. That seems to be the way to go.

I have found that the camera is sensitive to battery power in that a slight fall off in voltage causes the problem. I came across a site, which I have not been able to find again, where it was stated that the contacts on the lid do not sit with sufficient pressure on the batteries to get a good contact. If you put the batteries in and look across the top, in my case, the battery +ve terminal is sitting slightly lower than the –ve battery terminal. To solve it, put a small piece of very thin plastic under the +ve contact on the lid so that it sits more proud. This has certainly improved my problem to the extent that this week the plastic fell out and the problem returned. Also I always use high capacity re-chargeable batteries. Hope this helps.

Try cleaning the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Go to this site and try emailing them: www.camerasandparts.com They just service the Canon Powershot cameras and they are wonderful for help with these. They do excellent work and are about half the price of Canon. Hope that helps, best of luck with the problem.

When i open my internal flash on my 1100d there's show up problem.err 50, whats happen with my camera?how to fix it?


you could check online and see if there is a firmware update for the camera? or it could be an actual physical part on the camera needs replaced? would be really frustrating i imagine. another solution would be to get an external flash like the $40 neewer tt560 and see if it works with camera? it is miles ahead of the onboard flash anyway and is a good investment to any photographer! and the only other suggestion is to upgrand to T3i (600D) or T5i (650D)

I can see something called "Exp Sim" in the bottom right corner of my 1100D. It flashes sometimes and is displayed continuously when I click a photo. What is this?


"Expo Sim" (Exposure Simulation) shows what your picture would look like with your chosen settings. For example, put the camera in full manual mode, start Live View, start turning dials and you'll see changes in the look.

How do I use flash to freeze motion on a canon 1100D


flash will only completely freeze motion in total darkness. It is then that the duration of the flash is acting like your shutter speed even if you shot on bulb.

Im using a canon eos 1100D my pictures are dark when im using the built in flash


The range on your pop up flash is only about 15 feet, if your subject is further than that they will be underexposed. Try bumping up your ISO, also you can increase your flash exposure compensation by as much as two stops.

My Canon Camera 1100D after take 1 shot an err30 appear


Err30 indicates a problem with the camera shutter. Turn off the camera. Then remove the battery, take out the memory card, and then remove the lens. Clean the lens contacts and replace the lens (make sure that it is a Canon lens). Then replace the memory card and the battery. Then turn the camera back on.

If the error recurs, the camera needs service. Contact Canon.

I hope the problem is resolved by the above steps.

Camera says busy and I can't take a shot


Could be what you have the camera set at for how long the picture stays on the screen after it is taken. If the picture is still on the screen it wont take a picture until that picture has been stopped being shown. On my canon I have it at 2 seconds and I know at 4 it wouldn't let me take another shot so quick. Check all of your settings and read the manual.

My canon EOS 400 D will not take a photograph. I have selected 'full auto' and when i press the shutter button the speed and f number are displayed in the viewfinder together with the number 9 at the right...


The flashing green dot is telling you that your settings aren't right for the conditions. You have to bring in the settings within range. As long as the dot flashes, nothing is set right. Put camera on auto mode. Then take a photo. look at what the camera set the f stop, iso, etc. That will help you learn to set manual settings in the right direction. I have a 30 d and it will do same thing if setting in the manual settings are not right.

I don't know your camera but on my fuji there is a setting that changes the "film speed". If it is set too low such as 100 or 200, it will make the exposure take too long causing blurry photos.
The higher the number, the faster it is.
Worth a try.
It should be under settings area. Also check to see if the flash is working or what I have seen sometimes, people don't realize that when shooting a picture, their finger is covering the front of the camera where the exposure meter is.
