Question about Canon PowerShot A300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera turns on then shuts down

Hi, I have a Canon s410. My camera turns on okay and I get the canon display photo in the LCD. After about 7 secconds I hear 5 or 6 beeps and the screen goes gray. Then the zoom comes in and the camera shuts down. I can start it in the review photos mode and view the photos on my card with no problem.Do you have any idea what could cause this? I have switched batterries.Is this the recall you had mentioned re: ccd? Is it worth fixing?

Thanks,

Don

Hi...ensure  that the camera is turned on. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures. the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears.  Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon. This button could be a standalone button or it depends upon the camera model..... 
If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged. 
Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera. 
If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet. 
Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected. 
Perform a reset procedure on the camera....

thank u rate me!!!!

Flickering image on LCD lens of my Canon S410


By the sounds of it you have a bad chip on your camera system board. If the image records okay and displays okay after the image is recorded. Other than having your camera repaired you may have to use your camera as is.

Lcd is blery


What you describe may be caused by several different faults. Do the pictures from the camera show the same blurry washed out look? It may be either the aperture is stuck wide open, or the shutter may be similarly stuck open. Can you describe the symptoms further?

Blank LCD works but wont display


I have a Canon powershot A85 camera, and it works fine, but I get no picture in the LCD screen. It does take pictures and I can look at the pictures after I have taken them. I don't know if you live in Australia, if you do ring Canon on 131383. A lot of Canon camera's and also a lot of other digital camera's all have a problem with the CCD Chip. My brother has a Canon A75, he has had is for many years, and they fixed it free of charge, because it is a problem the camera has, so not something we done. Look on the internet and you will find a lot of info on it, also that it will be fixed free of charge. I also found the same information on a lot of other digital camera's, so ring Canon and find out, I hope this helps you. Kind Regards Marion
