We have dropped our Canon PowerShot S50 into water. It is now not working, despite having dried out. The memory card is OK. Is there anything we can do?

You could try fitting a new battery(s) if you haven't already.

My Canon Powershot A480 says the SD card is full even though it is not. How do I fix this?


You most likely have a problem with the memory card reader inside the camera. Have it repaired,it's not expensive at all and it's the only option for correcting this problem. This place is excellent and the most affordable for Canon Powershot repairs (it's all they work on): www.CamerasAndParts.com Go to their site and you should find the email address for them. Send them an email, they'd be the ones to help you with this problem since it's a Canon. Good luck

Loat cd for installing canon powershot a460


You don't need any special software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Canon powershot SD1200 IS says Memory Card Error


You probably just need to format the card in the camera. This will completely erase it so download any pictures you want to save first.

Water Damaged


ok there is one fix that i used with my canon sd700
again, it dropped it in the water and it stopped working
i took of the screen and changed the batterey wattage to 65w instead of 45w using a zxd breaker
then the "hotfix"
i pit it into a oven for 30 sec to get all compo. hot and then let it cool
i pressed the power button, and it worked!!
bad thing is the battery lasts about 5 or 6 hours only because of wattage change!

Can't upload photos with Canon Powershot A520


If the other solutions didn't work for you, you can always buy a memory card reader for around $30... These plug into your computer, and then you remove the memory card from your camera, and it clicks into the reader. Or your comptuer, if it was made in the last year or 2, may have an SD card reader built in...
