Question about Canon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Camera stopped taking pictures.

My Canon Power Shot A300 suddenly stopped working properly. The computer boots up fine, the pictures taken can be reviewed, but slide open th lens cover and it shows black. The default logos show up on the LED screen for a few seconds, but then it shows nothing. I can't understand what's happening. Do I need a new camera?
Thanks......theoldhogger

Well, I followed some other advice for another's problem. The suggestion was that the display button had been accidentally pushed. This was right on! I kind of thought it was something like that. I was asking my wife and kids if anybody had pushed any buttons. Never happened before. Kind of embarrassing, but the computer makes these cameras so complicated. My old eyes can barely see all the logos on that little screen. Thanks for being there, guys!

Canon power shot s1 is our camera suddenly ..


It is possible your USB connector has been damaged on the camera. This should be a relatively cheap fix however sometimes the circuit could also be damaged by a spike of power comming from the computer side. If it is found to be the later, you could be up for more than a new camera is worth. I would recommend purchasing a USB Compact Flash card reader to access your images off the card directly. They are relatively cheap to purchase from a computer store and easy to setup. Good luck.

Black pictures when using flash


The black images with flash mean that the Iris mechanism in the lens is not working properly, and that needs a professional camera repair service.

Digital Camera Malfunction


mine just started doing the same thing a few weeks ago. I had downloaded pixes to the computer, went outside to take picture and it started acting up. strange lines appear on the screen, but the codes are all there, and you can view the pictures that are on the card. no, the card is not full, the batteries are fine. I think it has a virus built in to start trouble so we will go buy a new one!

Canon Powershot A75 blurred LCD display


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. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
