If you Digital Camera won't turn on, you might not be holding the power button long enough. I had that problem with my Voyager until I realized I didn't hold the Power button long enough. Try that and it might work. If it doesn't work in five minutes, your camera is malfunctioning. That's all I have to say. Try it.

How do I get the CD rom for my Canon powershot Sd900?


Perhaps you can type canon powershot sd900 software into Google and download it from the internet. As long as it is from the canon website, it should be safe. Ask a techy friend to help you if you're not sure. Good luck!

My Canon powershot SD1000 screen isn't working. Iv'e charged the battery but when I turn the camera on, the screent is black. It won't take any pictures


It's very likely the CCD sensor that needs to be replaced. If you need to have it serviced, this place is excellent for the Powershots and not much at all if you need to have one fixed: www.camerasandparts.com
Before having it fixed, press the DISP button first and make sure you just didn't turn the display off. If you end up needing service for the Canon, that place above is really great for these cameras.

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Hi,
That sounds like an issue with the memory card. Yes you will lose all current photos on it when you format the memory card. It's also safe to leave the battery in the camera as DSLRs don't drain power when the camera isn't in use.

If your LCD doesn't light up then it's either the backlight or the LCD, you can open up the camera and check the cables before buying any parts. Some LCD screens come with the backlight, some don't; not sure if this one does or not.

IF it was water damage, you probably have corrosion on the main PCB and won't be able to fix it without replacing the board... open it up and check for corrosion!

Hope this helps.

Canon PowerShot, SD900, Using AutoFlash, pictures takes 8 seconds


It takes quite abit of power to charge the flash module. The older your batteries are, or the more drained they are = more time it's going take to charge the flash module.
It requires fresh batteries. If your batteries are not fresh, the camera will still work up to a point (that's why you can still take pictures), but it will take longer to charge the flash module.

You will be able to check this, if you have the A/C adapter. You will find that by using the adapter from a wall outlet, you'll have no problem with the flash time.

This will fix your problem, and you'll get better performance from your camera. Thanks for coming to FixYa, and don't forget to rate my solution.
