SOURCE: Blank screen on camera when turned on...cannot take picture

Though there may be an alternate reason, It sounds as though you may be experiencing a failed CCD image sensor with your camera.

Try pressing the display (DISP) button on the back of your camera several times to see if your image returns at any time. One of the three display modes is "off" to preserve battery life. Your problem may be as simple as inadvertently pressing this button into the off mode.

If that doesn't work, try doing a reset and then removing your batteries from the camera for a few minutes, reinstalling them and turning the camera on to test the LCD screen.

If your screen is still black, but you can clearly see pictures taken previous to the problem, and you can clearly see the menu system when you press the MENU button, then you likely have the CCD sensor problem. Contact Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 to have the camera repaired.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

SOURCE: memory card locked

this is from cardrecovery.com... whew a lot of people get this error... hope all of u resolves this..

but before u truobleshoot for recovery of pictures, check first the slide on your memory card (card protection) slide it both ways and check it... someone advices from a thread to use paper clips to pick the slot of the cam where u put the card, it work for him but i think its not a good idea coz it may damage the slot.. okay.. if there is still an error u can bring it to a tech person (canon support service) or just try to recover ur files...

Troubleshoot:

Memory card is used by digital camera to store the photos it takes. Popular memory cards include SD card, CF card, xD-Picture card and Memory stick. For some reasons, memory card may get damaged on power shortage, or removal of memory card on picture shooting or viewing, or other various and unknown reasons. Usually, you will see error message like "memory card error", "card locked", "card error", or an error code on your camera screen and the valuable pictures on the memory card could disappear and be lost. Some cases, your camera or Windows may prompt you to re-format the memory card and refuse to take new pictures or view old pictures.

Solution:

Once you have your memory card damaged, it is highly recommended to stop further operations on the memory card (e.g. taking new pictures, or delete, format the memory card). Data recovery software like "CardRecovery" is able to recover the lost pictures in most cases.

First, you need to confirm your memory card can appear as a drive letter in "My Computer", which will allow recovery software to access and recover the lost photos. You may try to connect your digital camera to your computer, if a new drive letter appears in "My Computer", it is OK. Otherwise, you need to prepare a USB card reader. There are many card readers available in market (e.g. SanDisk and Kingston). You can buy one from Amazon or BestBuy.


Then, you may download and install CardRecovery to your computer. Launch it from Start Menu -> Programs -> CardRecovery. You select the drive letter of your memory card, and destination folder for save the recovered files. CardRecovery will scan your memory card and locate the recoverable pictures. The process is quick and easy. Usually it takes less than 15 minutes.

Can I re-use the corrupted memory card?

For data protection, CardRecovery performs read only operation on your memory card and it does not change the data on the memory card, so it does not repair or fix the memory card. If you need, AFTER you have recovered your lost photos from the card, you may try to format the memory card before re-use. It is suggested to perform enough read/write test before using it again to take new pictures. If you are worrying that the memory card is unstable and may cause further data loss, purchase and use a new memory card. Your valuable and irreplaceable photos are more important than memory card. Memory card is very cheap. A new 2GB SD, CF or xD card is less than $10.

Hi,

A 4 gb memory card is beyond the capacity of your Cannon A540. It is too large. I would stick with a 1 gb card in that camera.

Cannon powershot sx10 is memory card problem


Assuming that the battery is good in the camera and that it will power OK othewise, then this is most likely a memory card problem.

Locate the problem to either the card or the camera, please:

1. try the card in another device, such as a computer with a card reader or another camera.

2. try the camera with a different card that is known to be good and that has been properly shutdown before removing from the previous device.

If the card works in another device then the problem is the camera and given the age, it probably needs to be replaced.

But if the camera works with a different card then the problem is the card and it probably has been corrupted. Try replacing it.

Canon powershot sx10 cannot download


Consider 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 iPhoto.

"cannon powershot sd870 wont turn on when memory


Please check the memory card with your PC and check if there are any corrupt files within. If so remvoe and format the card , Also so a virus scan and confirm that the Sd card is clean.
Now insert and check. If however the card is found in good condition in the first place then there are errors in the interface to the processor in the camera which might need a technical help from the Canon-service center.

I have put fresh batteries in my Canon Power Shot S1 camera and it still will not come on? Can you help me?


Contact failures may have occurred between the camera and the batteries.


Confirming that the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] is securely closed

If the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] is not securely closed, the power of the camera may not turn on.


Close the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] securely, and then turn the power on.


Clean the battery terminals with a dry cotton swab that has a fine and soft tip, and then re-insert the batteries.

If your camera uses four AA-size alkaline batteries supplied with the camera, follow the procedure below. In addition to Alkaline batteries you may use optional nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries.

1. Be sure that the camera power is off.

2. Slide the battery cover lock in the direction of the arrow, and push the battery cover slightly forward. Then open the cover.

My canon powershot sx10 stoped working suddenly. I tried with new set of batteries but even then it is not switching on... can you help me troubleshoot this issue.?


Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

I have a Conon Powershot S1 IS camera and bought a Transcend Compact Flash 4GB memory card and when I insert in into the camera a red light flashes at the menu and set buttons?


Have your new memory card inserted into your PC to test for any virus. Format the memory car.
Please check if your cannon is adaptive to the 4GB (check the instruction manual) if the card shows the same fault now after inserting.
Use another card into the camera to confirm if the card slot is faulty.

Camera won't turn on


1. Most likely is discharged or improperly inserted batteries. Make sure to use freshly charged AA batteries that are inserted with the correct polarity. The Inner 2 have the minus side up and the outer 2 batteries have the + side facing up.

2. Close the battery door fully because the battery cover pushes on a small sensor that has to be closed before the camera will turn on. The battery cover slides and clicks into place. If the battery cover sensor is bent or damaged then the camera would not turn on. The battery cover sensor is tiny, and out of the way and probably not obvious that is has one.

3. Insert the proper memory card and close the memory card cover securely. If it's left open or not seated fully the camera may not turn on. I

4. Also remove the memory card and re-seat it, then close the cover again in case it was not fully closed.

5. Remove the batteries and check that the battery terminals are clean and they appear to be intact. For example, corrosion from leaking batteries could cause a poor connection.

6. Was the camera dropped? If it was dropped that can bend the metal battery contacts, then when you put the batteries in it doesn't really contact the battery properly.

7. If it still won't turn on have an electronics guy check it over, or at the local college electronics teacher. I've fixed these before and the main DC circuits are not too complicated. These camera's can even be powered up using a regulated 6V DC power supply connected properly to the battery terminals, (just for testing) and in that case you don't need batteries to tell that the camera works or not. These draw about 300mA of current when ran from 5V to 6V DC.

I attached a JPG photo showing a similar Canon A60 running via a DC power supply and no batteries. This one was apart at the time to fix a stuck zoom lens, and when it's apart there is no where to put the batteries so I have to power it this way.

You do not have to take it apart or use this method. I just mentioned this so it's clear that all it needs to run is 5 -6V DC from properly charged and inserted batteries (or an external source). Don't try connecting anything if you are not familiar with electronics because connecting it up wrong can damage the camera. Try the suggestions mentioned early and it will probably work since these are pretty reliable cameras.
