Re: problem to take a photo

Do you mean that you can see the image on the screen of your camera, but when you click on the photo button, it doesn't actually take the picture?

I would first check your batteries - it sounds like there is a chance that your batteries do not have enough power to take the photo. Many people do not realize what little battery hogs digital cameras really are! They do not work well with rechargables in my experience, and go through regular alkaline batteries very fast.

Try replacing your batteries (and making sure they are in correctly), and try again. Also check for a build up of dirt or oils around the photo button. This is common too - we grab the camera and have food on our hands, or even soap, or regular good ol' dirt! ha! Just sitting out can get household dust and pet hairs on/in them too - be sure to see if it looks clean, or could use a little de-gunking around the button.

No image shows when I take picture

Usually the photo is displayed for a short period of time. Try the setup in the menu. There should be an option for previewing recent pictures.

Camera not displaying images as seen through viewfinder. The screen is black. Image controls and info can be seen but the picture is just black. Takes photos which are also black; but previous photos...

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras, particularly for the SD1000. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

By the way, my wife's SD1000 also has this problem every once in a while. I easily fix it by using the following steps from the link: powering on the camera, opening and closing the battery door, and flicking the end of the lens barrel with my fingertip (or you can tap it with a pencil as discussed in the link).

No image is available to view on the lcd screen canon ixus85is

Click the "disp" button. The display of the camera has been turned off in the LCD screen but you can still use the viewfinder, this functionality is just for those who prefer to use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen.

No start up sound and no image display

good day! you mean that you no longer can''t hear any start up sound every time you are turning on your gadget? you try clicking on the settings if there is because there are some instances that the tune is muted. in regards with the blank screen photo, there might be something that is obscuring the image screen. for more inquiry, please keep me in touch. thank you!

Canon Powershot A570 digital camera I had around 250 images in my memory stick, but all of a sudden when I tried to click another photo, all the images disappeared and showed the last picture clicked...

As all your photos are stored in your Canon digital camera's memory stick you could tryCard Data Recoverywhich will help you recover pics without casusing any damage to your photos. My bff recommended this extremely easy-to-usel software to me and he had used it successfully to recovered photos, music, etc. from his Sony memory card. Best wishes!

Sending photos as an e-mail attachment

When sending photos as e-mail attachments, the image (file) size should not be too large. Use the included image viewing program called Image Expert to save photos in reduced size. For instructions on installing Image Expert, see "Installing the image viewing program" on page 42 of the Instruction Manual. 1. Launch Image Expert. 2. Choose "Open Image" from the "File" menu. 3. Specify the image you want to reduce, then click "Open". If the camera is connected using the USB cable, it is displayed as a removable disc. images on the camera can be opened directly by specifying the remove-able disc. 4. Click on "Change Size" in the "Image" menu. 5. Input values at "Width" and "Height", then click "OK". If "Keep Aspect Ratio" is checked, the size is changed without changing the image’s vertical:horizontal ratio. 6. The image is displayed at its new size. 7. Click on "Save As" in the "File" menu to save the image with the new size.
