Question about Canon PowerShot Pro1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Our Canon Powershot will not turn on

My problem is similar to the one posted but different. I made a mistake of taking the card out whil the camera was ON. I am not sure that did it but the camera is dead now. The lens is half-way out and I can't turn the camera on at all. I tried inserting and re-inserting battery but it didn't do anything. Is there a way to reset the camera, you know, some magic key combination that will bring it back to life. Any help will be appreciated, my girlfriend is really upset with me, it is her camera. Thanks

    After CF card was removed, Canon Powershot Pro will not power on. Have used multiple, recharged batteries. Will not power on with or without CF card inserted.

SOURCE: lens error message Canon Powershot A550

Canon A550 and A560 have the same body and most of the internal parts, including lens assembly are the same. Canon won't sell individual parts within the lens assembly. There could be two possiblities. One is (unlikely) that the lens assembly components have been knocked off from their position. The other is that because of a knock, or dropping the camera, the gears in the gearbox of the lens assembly are broken. These gears are the same as the ones in A530/A540, and are available from ebay for $12.50 including shipping. Checkout my site for how to open up the camera and the lens assembly to replace these:

For A550 and A560, if you take it to the professional repair shop, it might not be cost effective, since it might cost around $90. Canon does not sell gears, so they might have to replace the entire lens assembly. The new camera is available these days for around $140.

What you are seeing is just an error message, starting your camera again won't do anything unfortunately.

You need to replace the lens, we have your lens repair available on our site for about $75! If we can help please let us know.

SOURCE: I turned on powershot then opened the battery

If you install fresh batteries, close the battery door the lens should retract. If it did not, make sure the batteries installed are properly. And don't do that again you will lose all pictures on the card and may ruin the card permenently.

SOURCE: My Canon PowerShot SD1000 shoots completely black

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Canon A620 LCD shows "memory card locked" for each card I insert

This worked for me!  I have the Canon Powershot SD780 IS and although my card WAS NOT locked, the camera "malfunctioned" and the switch in the camera needed to be gently pushed back IN, not DOWN on my specific camera type.  This is great, I was just going to go out and buy another camera today!  Thanks for the post Stephan!

Camera reading memory card error, cannot get it to work. Tried removeing the card and replacing batteries. Checked and it is not locked.

try formatting the card once on a pc and then plug it in your camera....if that does not help either, you'll have to try a different card.

I had a similar problem. The lense extended when I turned the camera on and immediately retracted and turned off by itself. I pulled the memory card and then reinserted/reseated it. It appears to have fixed my problem.
