Re: Anyone with this camera please read

FW upgrade is very easy: I have the same problem with the Display (after 8000 pictures) the LCD only works in Panoramic mode (or in remote capture mode when doing a remote capture from PC). In all other modes the camera LCD does not display anything. In order to upgrade the FW just connect the camera to your TV (using the cable that comes with the camera) The TV will the display the menu and you can do the FW upgrade. I upgraded the camera this way to FW 1.01 but unfortunatly the display problem still exists.

Suddenly I keep getting the message "please turn camera off and back on again" but nothing happens when I do I just get the message again. I can turn the dial to view pictures but if the dual is turne

did you try to wait several seconds before turning the camera back on?
When it happens again, after turning off the camera please remove the battery for a few seconds and put it in again. then switch on.
If the problem persists goto the repairshop or your dealer.

Similar problem -Error message Remove Lens Cap and press button.

After reading di_nick34 solution about removing sand, I removed the lens hood adaptor, and blew air between the gap, re-screw adaptor on. Heard a few clicks - must have broken some minute dust/dirt. Remove hood again, and further blowing. Must have removed the dirt stuck in the gap. Camera now works fine. Hope others with similar problem waill have same success.

An update for fellow readers.. After reading few other posts and googling a bit, I was sure that I've got non-authentic memory card.. I tried and inserted a new genuine memory card and all the problems seems to have vanished (for now :)).. I'll keep you posted if the problem appears again.. To find out if your sony memory card is genuine or not, read these guidelines from ebay..

I have same problem with my Rebel XTI and asked the problem to Canon USA. Here is the answer of Canon USA and it seems worked with my camera.

Resetting the camera back to default standards may solve the problem.
Please put the camera in AF mode instead of MF. In order to reset the camera back to default standards, we recommend you perform the following

1. Turn the camera ON in the P (Program) Mode.

2. Press the MENU button.

3. Scroll over to the Tools2 menu, then scroll down to Clear all settings.

4. Highlight the Clear all settings option and press the SET button.

5. Highlight the OK option and press the SET button.

At this point, the camera should be reset back to factory standards.
Also, try a different lens. If the camera still does not work, then the camera will need to be serviced.

Hoping to help finding a way to solve your problem.

I have Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera starting shut off and turn on and I could not understand "why?" it is happening because I changed batteries three times but does not resolve the problem. Please...

Try using a liquid contact cleaner. I read about this fix on another site, worked great for me.
A product called DeoxIT in the U.S. is what was suggested, I am in Canada and can't get that here so I picked up a product from a company called NexxTech. Just a liquid contact cleaner.
Take out the battery of the camera. Put a few small drops of the contact cleaner on the power button and let it drip down into the switch. Rotate the on/off switch back and forth 5-10 times, put the battery back in and Voila! Fixed!
No more random on/off irritations, camera works just like it did before the problem started a few weeks ago.
It worked great for me.
Good Luck!

The camera says please turn camera off and then on again every time i turn it on I dropped my camera and now when I turn it on the lens goes back and forth and the display reads "Please turn camera off...

I too have the sam problem but was able to solve it. I called the 1-800-number and was told that this is a very common issue or this camera. They told me to tap the lens when it was extended on a cloth or towel so not to damage it. The point was that there is often a piece of dirt or sand preventing the lens from retracting properly. Guess what, a single grain of sand came out when I tapped the lens and the camera worked perfectly ever since. I looked in the camera case since I keep the camera in it all the time and there were a few grains of sand that had somehow gotten into the lens!

I hope this can help someone else out.

Multiple image capture

Make sure your motion shots is off. check out the camera for anything that looks like 3 squares stagering down. if that is on this will cause your problem. it need to be set on one square only for single photos.

Possibly not as this refers to the image capture device and your appears to be firmware or control button problem But it sure is worth getting on to Canon customer support about it.
