3 photos taken when pressing button once.

I've had epsiodes in which 3 photos are taken when I press the button once. When it happens, it does so in all the modes that I've tried. It stopped doing it currently, but I don't know what I did to make it do so.

    It sounded good, but I didn't see any setting anywhere that would have given me that option. Thanks though.

It sounds like the camera was in "burst mode." This allows the camera to take several pictures at a time, and is useful in situations in which the object of your photos is in motion. To turn this on or off, go into the menu and look for something that says burst mode. You may also see an icon that looks like a rectangle with two other rectangles behind it. This is the same setting.

    This is the manual (GB was all I could find):



    http://129.33.22.12/release/DSCW80.pdf



    On page 15 it talks about the DISP (up arrow) button. This selects the modes, including the burst mode. The top left of page 24 shows the screen icons for the camera. The first one that looks like several rectangles is the burst mode. When you see this, the camera will take 3 pictures at one press of the button. You can turn this back off with the DISP button again.

I have a canon sx30 IS. I can no longer get it to play back. The camera still takes photos and video as I can take the card and see them on computer. Any idea what is wrong?


First test to see if the Replay (single right arrow) button actually works. That may be the problem. That button does two jobs. 1st it is supposed to enter the replay mode to show the last picture taken first. Apparently, from your description of the problem, that is not happening. To verify it is that switch that is dirty or defective, power up the camera, press the Replay button firmly just once, press the left arrow on the circular switch once. Wait until the lens retracts (about one minute). Then press the Replay button firmly once more. The camera should power down. If it doesn't, that proves the Replay switch is dirty or defective. Post the results of this test if possible.

Ink absorber full, ip2600


I have a ip2600 that has had the waste ink absorber msg come up twice. After trying several recommended fixes involving pressing the Resume key twice then 4 times, etc., I've found the perfect solution. Start by cleaning the waste pads with tweezers, etc.
1. Press Power Off
2. Disconnect Power Cord
3. At SAME TIME, Press & HOLD Power Key while re-connecting Power cord
4. Release the Power button
5. Press the power button again
This will work!

Power key doesn´t work


There must be a problem with your batteries. If you have recently charged your batteries and it happens again, you should try a new set of rechargeable batteries.

You can try conserving charging power usage on camera by turning the flash off so that it doesn't precharge for the next shot.

No pictures??


This sounds like the same problem I had. I could not find a solution without losing the photos that I had already taken. Try reseting the camera. In the menu clear all the photos out of memory. If the picture counter doesn't reset you may need to physically kill power to the camera (by pulling out the batteries) this will delete any photos in memory and reset the photo counter. Once you are sure that the memory is empty. Try taking some test photos and reconecting to the computer to see if the software sees the new photos. You may want to delete and reload the camera drivers before you connecting the camera.

How to view


There are two ways to view the photos, in the camera...

1) if the camera is OFF and the lens barrier is closed, just press the Play (>) button once to view the photos.
2) If the camera is in SHOOTING mode with the lens barrier open, press the Quick View button twice in rapid succession.

When you are done reviewing the pictures, press the Quick View button once to turn the monitor off, OR, to return to the shooting mode, press the shutter button halfway.

Then use the arrow pads to go forward and backward.

Hope this helps.
