Unable to download to PC

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 iPhoto or any other photo management program.

Canon EOS Rebel XS won't take pictures. Will turn on, access menu and display, but when you push the button the flash will "strobe" and won't take picture. Thank you for your help!!

This is a fairly new Digital camera model. A few quick things that could cause your particular problem is that the camera hasn't had a media card installed. The media card may not have been formatted to the camera. The lens is not totally locked in position. Within the menu there is a function that prevents the camera from taking a picture if there is no media card installed. If there is a media card in the camera it may be full of pictures and unable to store any more images. If the media card is not the problem then I would say that the camera is not focusing and without focus the camera will not take a picture. Look for the auto focus confirmation little green dot in the viewfinder it should be a solid green not blinking. Hope this was a help

My film wont move on after i take a picture. So it only says one picture taken on the screen ?

The camera may be set to do a multiple exposure and you must take the camera off this setting back to normal mode to remedy this.
1. Look at the top of the camera from the back - on the far left is the knob with the BKT, FLASH, and ISO buttons. On the bottom of the outside of this knob there is a small ring and also a small black unlabeled button to the top left of the knob.
2. Press and hold the small button
3. Turn the ring until it shows the "S" setting

Then fire the shutter - the camera should operate as normal and advance the film after the shutter firing. If it still does not, then your film advance motor may be bad and need to be replaced or repaired.

You push the button and it will not take a picture. I put new batteries in it and it still will not take a picture.

My HTsi Plus never seems to be able to Auto Focus on a subject, so when you push the shutter button half-way, it just flashes the focus indicator (telling you it is unable to focus). Try switching over to the "Manual Focus" mode. On the front of the camera there is a button labeled "AF/M". Push that button to switch to manual focus. If the camera is in manual focus, the external LCD screen will say "M.Focus". Now try to snap a shot. If that still does not work, there may be something wrong with the camera or the lens. So, try using a different lens in manual focus mode. If it still does not work, then I would say the problem is with the camera itself.

I am unable to get pictures to download to pc do I want to format the disk?

NO! Formatting the disk will remove all of the pictures from it. First make sure that you can view your pictures using the camera. If you can, then the problem lies between the camera and computer. I have found the best method of transferring is to connect to the computer with the USB lead, and drag and drop the files from the camera to a folder in the computer.

I got and fEE... and figuered out it means error!!

This might be a long shot, but on the lens section of the guide shown below, it notes ,,,,

Non-G lenses will have an aperture ring on the base of the lens where it's attached to the camera. Set this this ring to the smallest aperture (largest number), usually in orange and 16, 22 or 32. There usually is a lock to keep this ring set there, since if it comes off that setting you'll get an error message (fEE) from most cameras.

Full guide is here:

Hope this helps

Canon ae-1

To open the back pull on the rewind knob ( pulling up ) until back opens. Check that your 6 volt battery is ok ( ae -1 has an electronic shutter so will not work without a battery ): battery situated on the left hand side of the camera ( if it is facing you ) underneath small flip up door ( lock is at the bottom on the left of the small door ) . Check the battery by pressing the shutter release gently and seeing if your light meter needle moves. No movement ? replace battery. You have two modes for taking pictures : auto which is actually AV ( aperture priority) or full manual : both are set by moving the shutter speed dial on the top right hand side ( underneath film winding lever ).
