Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

Canan PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

My camera was working just fine on the one of the biggest trips of my life. We were out west, Colorado, Grand Canyon, etc., and it was working great. Then on day 4 of the trip, all of our pictures we had taken so far had been mysteriously erased from the SD card. The card was fine, we checked it in other cameras. From that day on, we have not been able to take pictures with our camera. When you press the button to take the picture, it doesn't even focus or do anything at all. You can hold the button down, and nothing ever happens. We ended up buying a whole new camera (not a Canon this time), but we'd still like to be able to fix this one.

This is the problem with this unit. you need to press it half-way to set the auto-focus and after you hear a beep then its ready to go. this thing usually happen when the battery goes down low. even though the charge battery warning is still not shown. Remember that is only uses 2 double AA battery unlike most of the unit of the same size which has 4 double AA.

What is Francisco Coronado

He was a Spanish explorer who in 1540-42 led an expedition from Mexico to the North and East into the present day United States. He was looking for the mythical Seven Cities of Gold, or Cibola, a fable made up by previous travellers to exalt themselves.

His expedition did discover the Grand Canyon and Colorado River, and is thought to have reached the vicinity of Salina in central Kansas, which is one of the great explorations of history, even if he was only after treasure.

There is a lot of interest in tracing his exact route, and recently some artifacts have been found.

Temperature does play a big part in the efficiency of the fridge. The condenser at the back of the fridge needs cool air flow to allow gas vapour to be converted back into a liquid.again.

Isuzu I-290 parts from a Chevrolet Colorado or GMC Canyon

The parts sure better be interchangeable, seeing as how all of those Isuzu pickups roll off of the Canyon/Colorado assembly line. In truth, the Canyon/Colorado is actually based on a jointly-developed platform that was originally sold overseas as the Isuzu D-MAX – however, on the version that was later built here in the United States, General Motors swapped-in their own engines and restyled the body… but the platform itself is virtually identical. Due to something called the Chicken Tax, Isuzu sells the GM version here in the US (rather than their version that is built in Thailand). Basically, it is far too cost prohibitive for Isuzu to sell the D-MAX in the United States – so, to save themselves the tariff, they simply slapped an Isuzu emblem on the domestically-produced Canyon/Colorado instead.
