SOURCE: Hello. I hae a

Hi,

Unfortunately, this is a common problem on this model. Yet, no resolution other than getting it repaired.

There are a number of things you can try:

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged

2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand or other dirt etc

3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck

4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 2 minutes and refit



If no luck then we have to try some things that could possibly result in damaging your camera so should only be tried if happy to take that risk...



5. Try thumping the camera into your other hand, by thumping into your hand you are trying to jar the mechanism loose, by using your hand you will hopefully not do it too hard or it will hurt. You may need to do this a dozen or so times in different places to work. I have found the flat of the camera bottom into the flat of your hand best..

6. If the lens is stuck in the out position then remove the batteries and try twisting the lens first one way then the other, do not apply excessive force when doing this or you can break gears, you are trying to reposition not force... Likewise if the lens looks like it is crooked you can try pushing it back into position. This has a higher chance of doing more harm than the thump so please be careful...

7. Dismantle the camera, not for the faint hearted, you need to dismantle the lens assembly into the main body of the camera



If no luck then only other option is a serviceman I'm afraid, be sure to get a quotes as camera repairs can be uneconomical

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: card is locked on Canon

SD and SDHC 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.

If that doesn't do it, try another card.

How do I get my photos from camera to my computer?. I have connected the camera with cord into port on my iMac. I have a Canon Power Shot SD1200 IS.


Try 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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

I am taking a class tonight and need to bring the manual for my Canon Power Shot SD 1200 IS. I can only find the small "Getting Started" booklet. I do have a "camera User Guide" for...


The SD1100 and SD1200 are close relatives, so the SD1100 manual would be close. However, you can download the SD1200 manual (and more) from the manufacturer's web site at

Canon powershot SD1200 IS says Memory Card Error


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.

A small icon is displayed at bottom of screen It looks like a hand in brackets. (hand) What does it mean


It means that you may see bluriness in the photo due to camera shake. You will usually see this when the image is being shot indoors or in relative darkness, and you have the flash turned off. It will also be displayed if you are manually setting the shutter speed and have selected a very slow shutter speed for the conditions.

If you see this symbol, try turning on the flash, getting more light on the subject, or use a tripod or place the camera on a very stable surface when taking the shots.

Canon camera shake indicator always on.


No it's not indicating shake. It's just telling you that the image stabilizer is on, and set to "continuous".
