How do i unlock card


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

"cannon powershot sd870 wont turn on when memory


Please check the memory card with your PC and check if there are any corrupt files within. If so remvoe and format the card , Also so a virus scan and confirm that the Sd card is clean.
Now insert and check. If however the card is found in good condition in the first place then there are errors in the interface to the processor in the camera which might need a technical help from the Canon-service center.

Canon SD870 IS lens does not open fully, motor runs.


The best advice is to have it fixed properly. Once these are serviced correctly, they tend to perform like they should. The place that can fix that one is www.camerasandparts.com They do the service for the camera with the repair which is the key to it working the way it should. It's only $79 with them for that service package and it covers parts labor and shipping back. Their the best deal if you need to have a Canon serviced. Their work is as good as it gets for these cameras.

My canon sd870 is reads card lock, how do you unlock it?


Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Have you tried formatting the card in your camera? Normally for Canons to access this function, first press menu, then select the tools menu, scroll down to the item that states your card's memory capacity and select it. Then follow the on-screen prompts for a "low-level" format.

My camera is not hooking up w/ my computer


Hi! Yes, I have pressed the arrow button when hooking it up. I still haven't been able to get it to work. It is covered by a warranty, so I will be sending it back, I guess--if I can't fix the problem myself. Thank you!
