Question about Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon digital elph SD500 5.0

I have a slightly older model of canon. It began making this "woo" or "whoosh" sound when i actually took a pic. No problem. Then shortly thereafter, the LCD turned black and white and slightly distorted, but the pic was perfect after. Then the pics just completely look distorted with a slightly red tint. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How to fix Powershot Elph 530S so that the lens retract all the way when powering off

From the way you describe the problem it appears that the retraction mechanism has become out of line. I think that as you can hear a clicking sound the mechanism is working but not engaging with the lens. Try gently applying slight pressure on the front of the lens this may help to re-engage. You may need to consider a trip to the repair shop.

A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Hi. I have used an older model ELPH camera its quite nice. It sounds that you are using the cable from the camera to the computer to download the photos. I do not know why the error occurred (probably a weak battery ) . Have you tried taking the memory card out of the camera (push it once and it pops out), then insert it into a special SD adapter connected to the computer by USB? Image google sd adapter usb if you do not know what that is. Some computers have the SD slot built in the side. After that on a PC click Start/My Computer where the card should appear as an external storage device. Click on that and on any folders within and your photos should all be there. Select all (Ctrl+A) and copy/paste them into a folder of your choice.

The flash went out on my Canon Powershot sd630. I love my camera. Is this an easy and cheap fix?

i had a camera like this and i loved mine to, i took so many pics that the zoom broke on it, i sent it away and they fixed it but mine had life time waranty on it so maybe yours does to. and it didnt take that long to get it back. if you dont have waranty onit i wouldnt think it would be that much.

No they should still be there, but you're going to need recovery software, and an external card reader to recover them. Take no more pics or videos until you've recovered the photos, and take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for.
You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're extremely inexpensive these days, and they actually are a better way to download your photos than directly from the camera.

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.
