Please look for lock in memory card as in the above image. If the white latch is in downside position then slide it in up position. Also check that you are inserting the memory card in right position in the camera.
about the cards their models must be not same that's why you don't get the soft copy of other pics on your computer ..or
For those of you with a Canon camera of the above models; there is a
firmware release that will make the autofocus work a bit better. Here are the links (a40,a30,a20,a10) http://www.canon.co.jp/Imaging/PSA40/PSA40_Adjustment-e.html http://www.canon.co.jp/Imaging/PSA30/PSA30_Adjustment-e.html http://www.canon.co.jp/Imaging/PSA20/PSA20_Adjustment-e.html http://www.canon.co.jp/Imaging/PSA10/PSA10_Adjustment-e.html
It mainly fixes the soft-focus problem with the second to last telephoto setting: In
case you haven't seen this problem, take an A40 and zoom to the
furthest optical setting (3x). Take a pcture; preferably something a
dozen meters away or so. Then just touch the button lightly to zoom back
one step (there are 7 zoom settings in total if I recall; maybe only
6); and take the same photo. When you compare these the soft setting of
the second photo should be apparent.
The firmware went smoothly for me and is fairly simple to do.
Well, stupid me, I didn't realize there is a diopter adjustment button directly to the right of the viewfinder. I would NEVER have known it was there, but after asking my photo-nerd friends all of a sudden the solution was apparent. Still a wasted day of shooting, but hey now I don't have to look like an idiot taking my camera somewhere to be serviced!
I just checked out the canon website, there is a link there regarding the CCD image sensory advisory. They are aware of the problem of all of a sudden getting a blurry picture and will fix it for free. Just call the toll free number on the site and they will send you a free mailing label and tell you what to do. They said it will take 10 days to fix, buy hey it's free.
You may be beyond (up to close) the focal capability of the lens. Even though there is a macro setting, the lens may not have the capability to focus on an object that close (without adding an external macro lens). The specification on the minimal distance for focus should be listed in the owner's manual.
Defective ccd imager!! company will replace this ccd imager free of charge. Year 2002 up to 2005 released unit has a factry defect ccd imager. the company recalled these unit and replaced with a stronger version of ccd imager( they are still doing it). check it out.
It sounds like the focus element in your lens is not functioning properly. Does the lens retract completely when you turn off the camera?
When you push the button does the camera attempt to focus the image? If you do not see any change in the image when you push the button, and do not hear any sound - then your focus motor is either jammed or malfunctioning.
