I have heard of this happening if the card was not formatted on your camera. Be sure you retrieve what you can from the card, then format it in your camera. It may solve your problem. The higher capacity SD mem chips (>2GB) sometimes don't display with some computers. I had to use a separate USB SD reader because the computer would not read the 4GB chip when I put it in the SD slot.

SOURCE: Even after doing Power Off and On the Lens Error

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Hi, Unfortunately that's a well known issues with the Canon SD1200. There's no way to fix it as the issue is the engine built into. The way equivalent model to it in this years line up, which doesn't have that issue is the Elph 100.

Using the Ixus 95IS I now get Unidentified Image - this is useless how can I rectify


This happens when your SD card is nearly full. Backup all the images on the card to your computer hard-drive, and then format it. That should help with the 'unidentified image' messages. You might also want to think about getting an SD card with a larger capacity, at least 4GB.

You probably just need to format the card in the camera. This will completely erase it so download any pictures you want to save first.
