Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Stuck in camera mode, little switch fell off.

The little switch on the top right hand side that switches the camera from view mode to camera mode broke off and I can't find it. If I look inside the remaining hole there is a little (tiny) lever thing. I tried to move it but no luck. Anyone know how much this should cost to fix? Ritz Camera is already trying to sell me a new one. I'm so mad at myself!

    Mine was missing when I picked it up today...it hadn't even been dropped! I, too, can't seem to switch it over. Is there somewhere to order the part?

Has anyone tried a hard reset on their camera by removing the main power batteries for 60 seconds and the reinserting them as if it were the first time power up. This may not fix your particular problem, but when the processor that runs all of the electronic features of the camera gets confused, this is the best way to clear its confusion.

The self-timer lever is on the front of camera, to the left. The switch on the side of the lens is the backlight compensation lever.

It says off and thats all


CD stuck in player.
Unplug.
Remove lid, small black screws on side and along the top of the back.
Fiddle with latch on left side near front that controls the door.
Once latch is released, open door and remove all CD's.
Make sure 2 CD's are not **** in player.
Move CD cage carefully. It should run smoothly along. If not it is locked in 'switched off mode' or CD is stuck half in and half out. If CD stuck fish CD out carefully.
Plug back in without any CD's in.
System should run back and forward and then lock at left hand end.
Put lid on and try one CD in one slot.

Camera does not start up until after several


If you are sure that your battery if fully charged but still does not do any good, then do this little trick:

1. Hold the camera on your right hand with the lens facing the ground.

2. As you press the power on button, tap or hit the camera's base to your left palm. Do this several times.

Chances are, there could be a sand or granule of dust that got stuck on the sides of the lens, preventing it to retract properly.

Hope this helps.

Hard Time Turning On


Hi,

For viewing you must turn to the right, it means your switch for record on is defective.
Your Canon repaircenter can fix this for you, if not contact Rotronica in the Netherlands for repair.

Fuji a345 digital camera will only take video footage, not photos


The three position switch for play,camera,video has likely broken. The plastic switch on the outside has a small contact plate held to the back of the switch on the inside with one small screw. I do have a replacement on hand if you are interested.

HP Digital Camera - M425 - Stuck in review mode, won't switch to capture mode


I just fixed my daughters camera with this problem. First go to the capture mode and see if the reason you are in review mode is because the camera thinks it is docked. If so, look at the dock port on the bottom of the camera. ( May need to magnify it to see in there ) Look for any green corrosion between the contacts. Her's has this corossion between two pairs of the contacts. I took a jewelers screw driver and scraped out the corrosion and then blew canned air in there to remove it. Turned it on and now it works fine. I have a feeling that the battery compartment is venting through this port and the small amount of acid vapor produced as the batteries discharge is causing the contacts to get this corrosion.

Manual Exposure mode Nikon F80


1) turn the mode switch/knob on the left of the camera to M ( manual mode ) 2) turn your lens to the highest f-stop ( 22 or 16 depending on your lens ) 3) in front of shutter release button you have control for your aperture : turn until the desired aperture is displayed ( view finder or the LCD monitor on the top ) 4) your shutter speed setting is controlled with your thumb with the control situated next to the strap lug on the right hand side of the camera. 5) press shutter release half way and look through viewfinder and see light meter reading and adjust either shutter speeds or the aperture as explained being guided by the l.meter.

Camera Mode Doesn't Work


There is a slide switch on the back of the camera, near the top right corner of the LCD screen. You apparently have it setting on the icon that looks like a triangle. Slide it up to the icon that looks like a camera.
