Question about Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon A710 left outside in freezing temps

My Canon A710 was left outside overnight in the yard in below freezing temps. When I turn it on it starts to boot up showing the Canon brand on the screen, the lens starts to go out and then it shuts itself off. I have tried new batteries and have let it dry/warm up for about 6 hours. No luck. Any suggestions?

    I'm having a similar problem, except my camera wasn't left anywhere where the temperature was extreme! I can switch on the camera in playback mode, but as soon as I switch to shooting mode it turns off, without even retracting the lens. I have tried several of the solutions mentioned on but to no avail (replacing batteries, removing sd card etc). I will try some of the other more basic ones, but if not I guess I will find out how much Canon will charge to repair it.....

    Typical that this happened on the first day of my honeymoon :((

Unit set to heat but outside unit fan won't turn on. Outside temp is below freezing. The weird thing is that you unit is putting out heat and not set to emergency heat

If it is a heatpump, the outside unit should not turn on below 35degrees or so. Below that temperature, the unit cannot effeciently exchange heat. When the outside temperature is low, the system automatically switches over to auxillary heat which uses the same heating elements as emergency heat.

Left car parked overnight outside air temps at/below zero, 10 hours later turned no start, check engine and fuel cutoff warnings on dash. Timing belt and water pump with new anti-freeze installed 18-24...

to be honest i would need to have my head under the bonnet to sort this one out ,the problem has nothing to do with timing belt or antifreeze ,i think you will need to ask a local mechanic to have a look for you because iam wondering if the cold has caused a fuel leak by cracking a pipe but it would have to be cold for that in excess of -20 i would imagine ,this is a petrol engine i presume and not a diesel as a diesel would wax the fuel at these temperatures throwing the lights on ,silly question i suppose an american with a diesel ,well i have one of these cars a 1.8 diesel turbo ,great shopping basket but with petrol at around 12 dollars a gallon here and 14 dollars in the UK ?? need i say more .Now you car --- thinking-- Sorry nothing comes to mind other than the cold has caused a pipe to split ,

Camera Canon A710 IS started to ask set time date when turned on

When the camera is left without power for an extended period of time, the time and date settings are gone. You need to reset them and when you're finished, click the set/ok button twice.

Can the struts or shocks freeze on my 2005 equinox? It started a couple of weeks ago when the temp went below freezing.

Yes if they are leaking and you go to a car wash and then the temperature goes below freezing. It happened to me. Car started rocking all over the place because water got inside the strut and then froze solid overnight
