It sounds like the TV setting on the camera has been changed. The symptoms you describe can happen if you set the TV setting to PAL and connect the camera to a TV set that uses the NTSC standard.

Check the setting, and ensure the proper setting is being used.

I used to be able to download ppictures from my Canon Powershot A80 onto my computer with Vista O/S, using the cord that connects the camera to the computer's USB port. It doesn't work anymore.


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Windows Vista does not recognize Canon PowerShot A80


Vista requires updated drivers for most of the older cameras. Unfortunately, Canon chose not to update the drivers for many of these cameras, including the A80. BUT please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue. Just make sure that you get one that's stated capable of reading a CF card:

Windows Vista can't find my camera. This is a new problem as it worked fine last winter.My old computer with Windows XP has no problem. Control Panel - Scanners and cameras shows the Canon A80.


Canon did not update the drivers for many of its older cameras for the Vista OS, the A80 included. In other words, you cannot directly download from the A80 using Vista. Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as an alternative and much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos.

Canon a80 camera


It seems that either the image sensor or the connection between the image sensor and the processing board has been damaged or was improperly installed. If you sent it in because the lens was jammed it is highly likely that this is what has happened. See if you can get the facility who repaired it to cover the re-do, in the end it is their fault if your CCD is defective now and was not before the repair. However - if the camera was non functional after you dropped it they could very well say that the impact caused the problem. You might have no options besides either dealing with the issue or replacing the camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

CF card problem


Try a CF card reader. If that shows no files then try some file recovery software with the card reader acting like a drive. There are some nice freeware programs that might help. It may be that the files are corrupted then the solution is more difficult. Good Luck!
