Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

The Canon PowerShort A1000 IS battery and memory card cover is very hard to close - feels like it is going to snap off. Is this usual, or do I need to have it serviced as camera is still under warranty? Thanks

It would hard to access this problem without doing it. My suggestion would be to take it in to a camera repair shop, or Best Buy, and have a technician look at it. They will know if it's abnormal and if you should have it serviced under warranty without you having to send it in. Good luck, and hope this helps.

I have a Canon Powershot A1000 - put in a new Sundisk 4GB SDHC memory card - reads "memory card error"


As much as it hurts - cards go bad all of the time. If this is a card that you have used previously with good success and it now wont read on your camera you might try a data recovery service to pull whatever they can from your card otherwise it could be a bad card (even if new) and you will need to get a new one.
Good luck

Canon ixy 50s


The manual o page 157 says : Lens will not retract. Do not open the memory card/battery cover while the power is on. After closing the memory card/battery cover, turn the power on then back off (pp. 17, 18).
If that does not work the first time, while he camera is off, remove the battery. wait a minute and reinsert the battery. Close the card / battery cover and switch on again.

unless there is a mechanical problem, this should solve the problem.

I have a canon powershort A495 camera now it shows "memory card is locked" let me know how it can be cure?


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

How can i download pictures from my A1000 w/o the sotware?


There are several ways. Download and install google's picasa. When you connect your camera click the Import tab and follow the appropriate steps to download the photos. It does take time to learn and you may make a mistake so be sure to keep the option not to delete the photos from the camera after download.

2- The safest way is without any software. Connect the camera and go to Start/My Computer where your camera will appear next to C: (or D:) as E: or some such volume. Click on folders there until you see your photos. Copy the enclosing folder and paste it somewhere like the desktop or My Pictures. I usually prefer to save duplicate copies one on an external hard disk.

3- Same as 2, but also use www.irfanview.com to sort and display your photos.

4. Same as 1., 2. and 3. but instead of a USB cord connecting the camera use an memory card reader. That saves your camera battery for one. It also allows you to delete photos in the trash of the memory card (not the one n the desktop).

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.

Installing batteries in cameras with 2 batteries. If your camera uses two AA-size alkaline batteries supplied with the camera, follow the procedure below.

My canon powershot A1000 won't import my pictures,but previously it had.


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.

Sir, My mobile is Nokia 6500 model. In contact settings,at first it was set as contacts>>settings>>"memory in use"-PHONE AND SIM. By mistake I have changed the option of "memory in use" to...


usually the phone memory security code for nokia mobiles will be 12345, until it is changed manually. try this code... else, u have to consult the service provider i guess.

memory card not detecting....
First you open gallery on screen. If the memory card ok the first item will be the name of your Card. If it is not found that means the card not detecting. You may do this.:

Open Gallery, then press the back ( battery cover ) of the phone and hold for one second, now see the screen, you can see the card name on first line. But when you take your hand back form the battery cover the display revert to the same as before.
The point of pressing:- near to the lense ( Just right side of the lense) . You know why ?. The memory card is located inside of that place.
This means there is a switch (Battery cover open / close) located just left side of the memory card, and there is a TIP projected in the same place at the Battery cover. When we close the back cover the switch become ON. Here is the problem.....!. The switch will not contact even you close the cover. When you press the cover hardly the switch become contact. when you remove the hand again it become open.
More clarification:-
In a new phone if you open the battery cover the memory card will not work at all. It will detect only after closing the cover.

this may help you.

I wish to add more RAM to my laptop but cannot get cover openbehi


The ram is under a base cover and the cover is usually indicated by small rectangles imprinted in the plastic. I will send you the link to the service manual that will show everything you need to know about your laptop.
The ram, wireless card, heat-sink and processor are all under the largest of the panels. The smaller panel is where the hard drive lives and then there is the battery.

Memory card fitting problem...


Take a strong light and look into the slot where the memory card fits and see if there are any bent pins. If there are, I'm not sure who besides Canon service can fix it, but it sounds like this may be your problem.
