Digital zoom doesn't work

Recently, I noticed that the digital zoom on my SD 630 isn't working any more since it got wet slightly on a rainy day on one of the trips. Optical zoom does work with no issues. The only issue is wrt Digital zoom (4.x). Currently, i am able to use the zoom upto 3.x, earlier it used to operate at 12x as the specs are mentioned about the product. Appreciate any suggestion to get the zoom functionality working on my camera.

Re: Digital zoom doesn't work

Wet has affected the circuitry and could be progressive-[in which case there will be no repair option] best let the camera dry out in a warm place. Take batteries out and let it dry. You could help it along by putting the camera in a snap shut poly-bag with some rice or salt in a cloth/tissue tie to absorb any moisture. As regard the Digital zoom- strict speaking it has no value -it is simply magnifying the centre of the recorded image. rely on the optical zoom and print up bigger section for better clarity.

Cannot zoom in on canon g9. zoom out works, but not able to zoom in

Check to make sure that the two right strap lug screws are in place. One or more coming out and falling into the mechanism is a common fault on this model

Take off the SD card and try to copy from other SD reader with connected at PC; if this isn't work, then you should try formatting the card. If that doesn`t help, it looks like the card is faulty.

Its possible that you lost the pics in there.

If this exact card has worked in the camera before, chances are it has gone bad. Typically, if the camera says to format the card it is because it does not recognize the card. The only reason this would happen is if the card is unreadable from malfunction, or it is too new of a technology for the camera to recognize.

Canon PowerShot SD 630 Digital Elph "Memory Card Error"

I'm sorry to tell that PowerShot SD 630 does not support SDHC cards over 2 gig.
If you want the camera to take a card over 2 gig then you are stuck standard SD cards.
The other camera does support the card because it's a higher model.

Digital cameras as with any digital equipment is very sensitive to moisture and needs to be kept dry. If this happened recently (within the last 2 days) there could still be hope, remove the batteries and flashmemory card, with a hairdryer on GENTLE heat and from a distance of one foot direct the slightly heated air into the battery compartment for a few minutes, alternate by blowing air gently around the whole casing of the camera. Do not use very hot air as this WILL misform the plastics of the camera. Do this a few times , then charge the batteries again put in memory card and try again.

A210 zoom error

When you first turn the camera on, grab the lens, pull on it slightly. Turn the camera off and try it again. If it doesn"t work the first time , pull on the lens slightly again. It worked on mine
