Canon powershot pro1 will not turn on

Didn't use it for a while.Would not turn on. Recharged the battery until showed full but the camera still shows no life-sign. It has been used sparingly and without any problems. Any ideas?

Re: Canon powershot pro1 will not turn on

You have to try another battery to know for sure if it is bad. I have three batteries so that I can rotate while I am working with the camera.

How to remove the lens of the Canon PowerShot Pro1 Digital Camera? If it cannot remove, how can I disassembly the front of the camera with the lens? And is there are some pictures and graphics to show

Does not matter how you remove the lens, because once you got it of, you never can get it back on, so your camera can use it. Assembling a camera lens is a very delicate job, and only the slightest miss alignment makes a lens worthless. This kind of repairs should be done in a Canon certified repair centre. But first ask what it will cost, but if it costs more then a new camera, you better start saving for a new camera. The cameras becoming better and better every year, and in the same time they are cheaper and cheaper.

Sorry, but if you really want to try it yourself, because you don't mind what the result will be, please look on the site fixit dot com. The take apart all kinds of electronic equipment. (they don't show how to put it together)

My Canon Powershot Pro1 will not accept the memory card. The screen flashes "Memory Card Error" every time I turn it on.

Your camera uses a Compact Flash card so it's asking you to format the card.
Here is a diagram to show you were to go and the process for formatting the memory card
I had one tough time finding a DPF manual for this camera. Looks like a feature rich camera cheers have fun

Wish to load my pic to ebay , from my canon pro1 camera

1.connect cam via usb link and check your cam.your cam will show option choose "data storage".the other options will need a software to be installed in the pc.
2.find the icon in my computer or at the right lower side of the monitor/screen which confirms the camera is connected.This will show the "drive" on the "drive"...until it shows the letters DCIM.
4 click again and now will show all the pictures on the camera.
5. choose what picture you like to upload from your cam to pc. you can also choose all of them.
6. if your done transfering your pictures to your pc you can now upload pictures to your ebay.
just click upload from your ebay profile.
7. then a "browse" will appear. cllick browse and find the folder where you save the pictures you have loaded from the cam to pc, and click okey/open.
8. check your ebay to confirm that the picture has been loaded.

this is the other way to load pictures from your cam to pc:

youll need a card reader hooked up to your computer via a USB and your memory card.
If required, youll load your memory card into the card reader. Your digital media will appear as another drive on your computer. Click the drive and your photos will appear in a folder on the drive. You can view your pictures immediately by double-clicking the file. From here, you can save your pictures directly to any folder on your computer.

Powershot pro1 viewfinder show blank white

When the LCD screen is open the viewfinder will switch of and when it is closed the viewfinder will switch on. You can switch between the two by pressing Monitor select button to the left of the Eyepiece (Viewfinder). as you look at the back of the camera.

Hope this helps.
