Re: canon ds6041

On board fuse probably burned. and flash probably dead now.
need to send this to canon. they have fixed price major and fixed price minor service rates. not very expensive. on the other hand, you might invest in a newer camera or an upgrade.
good luck

I have a canon sx3osi it takes pics slow ,can i change the shutter speed?

You can select the shutter speed by choosing "Tv" mode (shutter priority) and choosing a quick shutter speed like 1/100 or 1/125-- but that is probably not your problem. You're probably looking for "continuous" shooting mode, shown as several overlapping rectangles-- as opposed to single shot mode, which is commonly shown as a single rectangle, possibly with an S inside. I'm not sure about the SX3osi, but an older or less expensive camera may just have to take several seconds to record a photo.

I have a canon powershot a520 and it refreshes vary slow so it takes forever to take another photo. How do I fix this?


I've got a A520 also, and I think theres a few reasons why it can take a while between shots.

1) When using the flash, flash needs several seconds to recharge, this is unavoidable.
2) Some SD cards are slower than others. Make sure you buy a fast one. Note too that a 2Gb or 4Gb card will slow down your camera between shots, compared to a smaller memory card, such as 1Gb, or 512mb.
3) If using a slow shutter speed, such as 10 or 15 seconds, I've found it takes longer to take the next photo. This is unavoidable.

4) You could lower the resolution of the photos you're taking, this will enable you to take photos faster, and may still be good enough for applications such as Facebook, ect.

5) Another trick is to use the multiple shots option. For some reason you can take more photos more quickly than if you manually take each photo. Flash, and slow shutter speeds may still slow down the camera, if used.

Hope these hints help!

Very long lag time to shoot and between shots... sometimes!

hello again after researching i did find out that there is about a 3 second delay if using the flash option did any of your delays happen when not using the flash ? also does this happen when using the camera in auto mode ? turning the knob on the top to the green auto mode i'm thinking it also could have to do with your shutter speed or try going to the menu and changing the shutter speed to a faster speed your self then taking pictures in av or tv mode. here's a comment from a review on the PowerShot a590 that might help. Camera performance is very good. The PowerShot A590 is ready to shoot after a 1.2 second delay -- pretty snappy. Focus speeds were very good, even in low light situations. Shutter lag wasn't a problem, and shot-to-shot delays were minimal, except when you're using the flash, which is slow to charge. The camera can shoot continuously at 1.5 frames/second until your (high speed) memory card is full. The A590's battery life is 10% better than its predecessors, and is well above average for its class. The camera supports the USB 2.0 High Speed standard, for fast data transfer to a Mac or PC.
and if you still have the problem with out the flash then the only other solution is a faster flash memory card there's cards made just for digital camera's that store pictures and format quicker.
hope this helps your enjoy your camera.

Make sure you have your flash & timing set where it is supposed to be, usually between 120 & 180. This is the shutter timing and flash duration. It is the syncronizing speed setting. If possible, turn off the automatic review, this slows things up. Also, if possible, use a power cord for the flash instead of batteries. Not all have this feature but, the flash is ready for the next shot in about 1 second.

Flash busy signal

This is perfectly normal, the flash uses short burst of electricity that are stored in a large state capacitor. This has to be recharged after so many pictures. You can go as fast as the SD card will allow even if the flash is charging, simply close the flash and continue taking photos without it, no effect apart from loss of some illumination depending on the conditions.

Recnetly while doing a photo shoot, the camera which is a Canon Rebel XP suddenly began to take shots that showed only the very top of the shot with the remaining showing all black. Initially, I thought...

2 possibles...

Most likely is the auto focus sub mirror retaining pin has broken, not an easy fix but possible if your careful.
Lift the mirror and see if the small mirror behind stays hanging down or lifts up out of the way.
if it stays hanging the pin is broken.
Instructions on how to fix here..

the other option is a faulty shutter, Canon say it should be good for 50,000 shots but many fail early with either damage to the vains or broken plastic parts, though usually you will get an error 99, no picture at all or a bright patch part way up. The shutter itself is fairly cheap (around £30 / $60) but you need to take the camera down further than the instructions above to replace it..

The flash capacitor is big on these and if you get too close to the flash transformer its likely to arc, giving you a hell of a shock and trashing the camera. It needs this time to discharge.
You can see it in image 21&22 of the instructions and you do have to handle it.

Best of luck
