Most likely there is mechanical damage, and very possible that a circuit board can be cracked. The unit would have to be sent for service.

My friend dropped my camera on the road, buttons broke...


You could try taking it apart and cleaning it...or getting a parts camera and putting on a new alluminum chassis and buttons...otherwise you will probably just have to live with it. sorry! Good luck!

Canon Powershot A630 video recording issue


This could be your memory card going bad. Recommend trying a "low level" format of the card to see if that jump starts it. First download all images and videos as the format will erase them from the card. Next press the menu button and select the settings (tools) menu. Go down to the format option, and press the "Func Set" button. Make sure "Low Level" format option is checked before selecting OK. After you format the card, try the video to see if the problem is fixed. If the above didn't help, recommend trying a different card.

Menu Problem


Did you try calling Canon tech support or returning to retailer if the camera is really not functioning properly this soon after purchase, I'd try returning it once all troubleshooting issues have not resolved the issue.

Hope this helps!

Sony F55 Recorded Display


The filename (e.g. DSC0012.jpg) shows the image number, the filespec shows the date and time recorded. Most software will give you document info about resolution of the image. I wouldn't worry about what the battery status was when the shot was taken or how many other images were on the Mstick. I guess I'm not sure what you need.

Embed audio notes


Since the C-5500 has audio recording capability it is possible to record brief audio notes, which become an embedded part of the image file. Open the MODE MENU and select the CAMERA tab. Toggle right to enter the CAMERA sub-menu and toggle down until you have selected the microphone icon, using the OK/MENU button. Then toggle right, select ON and press the OK/MENU button twice. The sound recording function is now enabled. About .5 seconds after the shutter is released the 4 second recording period will begin recording. You will need to point the microphone on the front of the camera toward the sound source. You can also record and record over audio notes on photos already taken. In the PLAYBACK Mode open the MODE MENU, select the PLAY tab and then select START. Pressing the OK/MENU button will start the 4 second recording period.
