Question about Canon Powershot A2000 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon Powershot A2000IS pictures corrupted be color wash.

Hey all, i have a canon powershot a2000is, about 4 months old, and it has a problem when the photos are distorted with a color wash, though shapes are still visable through it. The images appear fine when viewed before the photo is taken, but when viewed afterwards on the camera or computer, the wash corrupts some, but not all, of the pictures. There is no pattern, and factory refreshing the settings doesn't work. Please help.

This could be a failing SD card causing corruption of the stored files (the SD card isn't an ebay special is it? there have been some very bad quality cards coming from China recently). Recommend first trying another brand of SD card.

After you've tried another card and it's still doing this, then the symptoms could also be impending CCD image sensor failure. Unfortunately you cannot fix this yourself. But as the A2000 is a relatively new camera, it's likely that you've owned it less than one year and it's still under warranty.

If in US or Canada, call 1-800-OK-CANON to arrange for warranty repair.

I have a Canon PowerShot A2000IS camera and I moved some files to a different hard drive and now I am unable to download any photos. The CameraWindow DC gives me an error message that says

rerun your installation software to install to your new picture folder location. Be careful not to overwrite your original folder. I would rename the original to be safe. Good Luck!

Canon Powershot A2000is USB Device Not Recognized

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

My canon powershot a2000is displays 'change the batteries' even when the batteries are new and completely charged. i am not able to click more than 3-4 pics. these batteries work fine on other...

You most likely have dirty contacts or a loose connection inside the camera.
It might be worthwhile trying to clean the contacts. I would suggest using cotton wool twisted onto a skewer or wooden toothpick. Do NOT use any solvents or other liquids. If that doesn't help then you should seek professional advice ina camera shop.

Hello, I have a Canon Powershot A2000IS. It was dropped whilst on and now once turning it on it beeps and says "Lens error. Restart camera". What can I do to fix this. Thankyou very much

If the camera fell down in most cases it is that the lens shifted slightly..The best solution is for this is to have it opened and fixed manually. Please try a Mechanic it you are not sure of the Camera Systems and Hardware.
