My Computer Kepps Turning off!


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

In playback my camcorder stops and 31:11 flashes. Any ideas?


This most likely means the taps is jammed.
You can try and get the tape to eject. To do this, remove your battery from the back of the camera. Also if your camera has another small battery under the LCD (the size if a nickel) remove it too. Wait 2 minutes. Then, plug the camera in with the power cord. Try changing the camera from playback to record mode. The tape should eject at this point. If this doesn't work, try it again but this time start in record mode and change to playback after plugging it in.
I hope this helps.

Camera only takes one or two pictures then message tells me to change batteries. Batteries are new and camera turns off.


After surveying the web, I see that this problem has been around for at around 3 years. I use fully charged NiMh batteries and get the “change batteries” message after only a few shots or immediately.
In my case, changing to alkaline 1.5V batteries solves the problem (versus ~1.3V for NiMh or other rechargeables.) Cleaning the contacts (stainless steel) makes no difference.
Interestingly, I can operate the camera in the playback mode and view pictures and movies with no problem. This involves driving the display on the camera back, probably the most power hungry part of the instrument. This suggests the problem is record mode specific.
My guess is that there is a voltage reference problem. References can drift over time, and depending on the initial value, cause problems any time during a camera's life. The reference isn't necessarily needed in playback but is critical for recording should the image sensor voltage be too low.

Fresh batteries, clear playback, but still won't take a picture


Change the teeny date/time battery--dig it:

I was all set to send my camera off to canon for repair when I happened across that solution. I don't have a replacement on hand, but just removing that battery allows me to take pics again.

Canon PowerShot SD 870 IS Movie playback speed is too fast!


You've got it on Time Lapse video. Turn on, slide to video, press func. set button, toggle to standard instead of time lapse. Maybe next time try your owners manual. Of course you all are probably like my mom and just get a new camera, put in the batteries and start taking pictures. These stupid expensive cameras have too many options and get messed up too easily with the wrong press of the button. Try a simple cheap on next time.

No playback on DCR-TRV103


In playback mode the lCD displays the battery time, hi8 symbol and the tape counter. all the functions work the tape will play, rewind, fast forward. The screen stays blank on playback and the tape counter stays at 0:00:00 eventhough I can see the tape turning. I also hooke the camera to my tv and I got no picture.

Shooting mode will not operate


Your camera has a defective CCD imager. Please return the camera to Canon in New Jersey and they will replace the CCD at no charge to you. This is a known issue and should be covered under extended warranty. Good luck my friend. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

S5i won't turn on in Capture mode


Hi Aunty Edna. I had exactly the same problem with my S5I 4 weeks ago. Went out and bought another camera then decided had nothing to lose by doing heart segury on S5I. Found it has a watch battery soldered to board under memmory card holder which was flat. I replaced that with a similar battery and it fixed the problem. Its not an easy job but if you know someone good with there hands it would take about an hour.Hope this helps. Regards Andy
