Question about Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera
Hi i have my a710 over 8 months now. from times to times i have this problem. The picture or video is shoot fine but when i turn off the camera and after some minutes i turn it back on some of the just stored video/pictures are damaged!
My memory card is: 4GB Transcend Secure Digital Card High Capacity (SDHC) Class 6 (p/n SDHC-4GB-CL6)
When it seemed the files were damaged on the camera, have you tried to read them from a computer using a reader (many laptops have SD readers built in)?
If the data is there on the PC, better take the camera to service before the problem becomes more severe. If on the PC the data is damaged, try using another card, if everything is OK with the other one, discard the problem card or try to clean the contacts as follows:
Remove card, put it on table with gold contacts facing up, use a cotton tipped stick with some ethyl alcohol (not alcohol drinks!) or isopropyl alcohol (many cleaning solutions like magnetic head cleaners) to thoroughly clean each contact. Avoid spilling and leaving drops on the card. Dry the card well before inserting it again. Never use water or other cleaning solutions or you'll ruin your card.
Also it is a good idea to use cards up to 2GB, as 4GB and bigger have different signalling and may cause problems with your camera.
