Question about Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Red hazy screen when view pictures. Also offloads to computer that way.

Hello, I have a powershot S500 digital elph. When viewing and taking pictures the screen is mostly ghostly red. The pictures also offload from the camera to computer that way and cannot be edited. I changed batteries and memory cards but it doesn't make any difference. Please help. thanks Mike

When shooting my screen is black and pics. are black


try to take video on Movie mode, if you won't get picture on LCD the CCD is dead. That means you need to replace the whole zoom lens. it costs a lot, not worth to repair.

Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Elph


there are some settings that can help with this (check out red eye and flash settings). The best solution I have found is to press the button down half way. The view finder will try to frame the picture, and then press the button all the way down. This 1) Eliminates Red Eye 2) Increases picture speed 3) allows for the "perfect" moment because you can leave it at half pressed for as long as you like, and 4) Allows you to take rapid fire pictures if you don't depress all the way.

Hope that helps

If the date appears on the image as viewed on screen- Camera or Computer - it should print - if it does not then it is being cropped off in the print process. Carefully check your Camera Manual- Especially the PDF version on your software disk. Consider that if you are using the Camera's Software on your computer to print the images to remove the camera software -you do not actually need it to load images- and use another image editor
