Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

Open Question

One day it worked and the next day it didn't wouldn't turn on.

It may be that a few days before I added a wi-fi card as the sd card (eye-fi) but I dont think so. I guess it's back to Canon.

SOURCE: Canon Poershot sd300 digital elph. It just wont turn on period.

Try this: with the battery installed and battery door open, take a pencil, fine tip screwdriver, or anything long and skinny and push the tip of it into the little nub circled in the picture here. There's a spring inside that little nub... keep the spring depressed and try to turn on the camera. If it works, then either a small piece of plastic broke off the battery door or the nub got broken/pushed in too far for the battery door to trigger it. Try using a dab of hot glue to keep the nub pushed into the down position.

SOURCE: Canon Power Shot A400 will only work with original Canon SD card

Make sure you are using an SD card and not an SDHC card. The SDHC protocol is newer than your camera, and your camera does not support it. SD cards have capacities up to 2 GB. Your camera should work properly with any SD or MMC card.

check your memory card your using witht he camera. 550d is memory hungry and needs a high speed DSLR grade card such as the sandisk ultra 2 or extreme cards. or lexar professional series. sounds like you may have a faulty card or a card thats designed more for compact cameras and mp3 players

You can download software, manuals, and more from the manufacturer's web site at

You might want to consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer. 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 you can use any photo cataloging program.

Cannot select the wi-fi network on


The Wi-Fi connection requires installing a Wireless Mobile Utility to the smart device prior to use. And the Utility must be On.
Compatible OSs: iOS 6.0 or later, Android 2.3 or later

The Wi-Fi connection will be disabled if:
  • The battery charge is low
  • A memory card is not inserted
  • An Eye-Fi card is inserted

Tip

How do I Connect my Non-Wireless Camera to a Wireless Network


<p>Your digital camera can store images via a wireless network uses SD cards for memory storage. Special cards are available from SD Eye-Fi and also under the Lexar brand with Eye-Fi software, rather than just a flash memory, Wi-Fi radio that can connect to a local network and send your photos your computer contains. The SD card requires some special configuration and installation on your computer, but it transfers the files stored by the camera directly to your computer without further intervention. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Insert the Eye-Fi card in USB reader that came with it. Connect it to a USB port on your computer. If this is the first time you installed the Eye-Fi, the computer recognizes the new device and install the software and start automatically. If the software was previously installed, it will start automatically. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Register a new account or log in with your Eye-Fi account with your email and password. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click the Eye-Fi for a firmware update if the exclamation mark symbol is placed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Select your local network from the Network drop-down list. Enter your password and click "Add a network card." <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Select "I do not want to set up online photo sharing and now" and click "Next." Some cards do not see this screen. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Remove the card when the display "Complete" and insert the card into the camera. <br /> <p><br /> <p>7. Take pictures and look for the wireless transmission on the computer. <br />

I do not know how to transfer pictures from my Olympus SZ-14 to my ipad.


Because your camera uses SD cards, (SD/SDHC/SDXC and Eye-Fi) you have several options. The easiest and fastest possibility is to use a camera connection kit. On the picture the two on the left. The most left for iPad 1 to 3 (30 pins) the right for all anther iPads. Be aware these won't work on the iPhone or iPod. Then on the right is a WiFi card. Can be bought from Eye-Fi Transcend (Cheaper and much faster) and SanDisk. But more firms are bringing this item.
The Wi-Fi card is slower, because it is using the card as a hotspot. and the the fastest Wi-Fi is always slower than wired. The Transcend card, I also use to put the pictures on my iPhone, using Wi-Fi. he card has even more possibilities, like sending pictures direct to a computer, but you can check this on the sites from Eye-Fi and Transcend.
Both solutions can be the same in price, because when buying a Wi-Fi card, you also have a new memory card (Class 10 in case of the Transcend)

"File contains no image data"


Try a new SD card. SD cards do fail.
The socket inside the camera maybe no good - bad connections.
The camera may have liquid damage - this causes all kinds of weird issues.
I try the cards in my computer reader. If they can be used all day there (I load and unload stuff randomly all day to test and then put the card in a drawer for a few days and check what I loaded later), the fault is likely the camera.

Sandisk micro SD "card error"


The five pics are being stored on the camera's internal memory. The card you used was formatted and used in your phone. It's a miracle it worked at all. You need to get a new card, format it in your new camera have fun.

Lumix DMC ZS1 w/4gb card not recognized by Panasonic PhotoFun software, and camera will not power down.


Called Panasonic's Tech Support and talked to a real person (!) on Thanksgiving Day(!). She suggested not disconnecting or turning off the system, as it might damage the SD card. Instead we concluded it would be best to leave the camera alone, and allow the battery to run down. I did, then removed the card. Bought a (Sony) card reader next day, and it works great. Just copied the disk directly from reader to computer, ignoring the Panasonic software.

My Casio Exilim got wet and now the flash doesn?t work all the time


Sorry, an underwater case would have been real helpful in this situation. :) The only thing you can do is send it into repairs.
