Question about Digital Cameras

2 Answers

I recently ordered a Canon Powershot SD800 IS digital Elkph, installed the battery and camera card. when I press the shutter, the camera makes a sound much like the one year hear when you hit a key at your computer that does not take you anywhere. I tried to look up the proper procedure of getting started, but the basic guide in the use of the camera is in Spanish. I guess the English language guide was supposed to come in the box but iunfortunately was not included. Could you send me a guide in English? My email address is: , My name and USPS mailing address is: Taeko Jane Takahashi U.S. Geological Survey Hawaiian Volcano Observatory P.O. Box 51 Hawaii National Park, HI 96718 If you choose to send it by FedEx or UPS, the address is: Taeko Jane Takahashi U.S. Geological Survey Hawaiian Volcano Observatory Crater Rim Drive Hawaii National Park, HI 96718 I ordered this camera on 11/28/07 and only this week unpackaged it, due to heavy work commitments. There is an eruption going on, and I want to get the wide-angle views. I'm one of the photo documenters of the eruption--if only I can get my camera to work! Right now, I am using my other camera, but it is not wide-angle. Thank you, Taeko Jane Takahashi (808)967-8811

I have a canon powershot SD800 IS. When I connect to my computer (windows vista), the icon is not coming up for my to press to download my pictures. I went to the device manager and saw that there is a...


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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Canon sd800 won't turn on like the battery is dead


Hi,

If the batteries run down completely while the camera is still open, it may not start up again when new batteries are installed. But if you remove the memory card, then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life.
Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries (if you still have your instruction manual, open it to the "batteries" section. Pretty sure you'll see a statement similar to what I've just said).
check whether your batteries are actually making contact with the battery posts, and that these posts are clean. If not, bend the posts up/down a little, and maybe clean them with a little rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip

Thank you

My Window 7 can not detect my PowerShot SD800 IS from USB. I can not using Canon software detect camera


Thanks for contacting FixYa Technical Support.

I am not sure if you have attempted to run Canon's most current driver update for the Canon PowerShot SD800 IS, but here is the link for that driver.

Canon PowerShot SD800 IS Drivers for Windows 7

This driver is for Windows 7, 32 bit and 64 bit systems.

What you may want to try first, is to disconnect your camera from your PC, install this driver update and then connect the PowerShot and see if it will detect it.

Driver updates are usually the first steps to take in troubleshooting device connection issues with PCs.

Hope this helps!

SD800 no longer recognized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Best solution for SDHC is a high speed card reader.
One that hooks up via Firewire.
Some of the compatible cameras with the higher capacity, faster cards are not recognized when connected to the computer... great work around and downloads are quicker too.
