Dear jodyp:

Unless you're competent at digital camera repair and can do repairs with parts that come with no instruction or technical support, then it is probably better that you send your camera in for repair at Canon's Factory Service Center (FSC).

I know that repairs for these camera can run high in relation to the cost of the camera, but the FSC usually has repair costs that are substantially lower that other Authorized Repair Centers.

In addition you may qualify to take advantage of Canon's Customer Loyalty Program wherein you can get a higher level refurbished camera for a similar price as the repair would cost.
And since these camera's come with a 6 month replacement warranty, if your camera is currently out-of -warranty, it is often a good deal as you will end up with at least 6 more months of coverage - Plus an upgraded camera model :-)

So give them a call at 1-800-828-4040 and see what your options are. And also keep in mind when comparing choices that Canon now has 3 or 4 new camera models available for under $150!

Hope this helps.

    The information I sent you was to get in contact with some one that could fix your camera that does not charge a arm and a leg.

I have a Cannon PowerShot SD600. An 8G SD memory card is not working; what is the maximum capacity for this camera? Is there a way to upgrade it or do I have to stick with a small memory card? Thanks

The SD600 uses MMC and SD cards, which max out at 2GB. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card, which is electronically incompatible and will not work in the SD600.

Will the Cannon SD600 work with an SDHC memory card??

According to Canon's specs, no. The SD600 only works with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a cannon power shot SD600. I bought a memory card, and the camera says memory card error. I can't even fomat the card because the function won't high light.

Did you get an SDHC card? The SDHC protocol was developed after the SD600 came out, and the SD600 is not compatible with it. Use SD cards with a maximum of 2GB storage capacity.

Hi Dear,

As we can see from your description of your problem. The issue is related to misalignment of the lens. As the lens is stuck it will not come in and out smoothly. And also as you have said the camera lens is broken. Hence, the best place would be go to the authorized Cannon service station. they will changer you a little bit higher than the other(road side) service station. But it will be done by the hands of experts.

Hence please take it to Cannon Service station only. They will fix it up perfectly.

If you have more queries on this. Please do write to us on the same. We will be obliged to solve your issues.

Have nice day.

My cannon power shot sd600 viewer doesnt turn on

Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. Try pressing this button one more time to see if it turns back on.

I have a Cannon Powershot SD600, just got it recently and it worked great, then all of a sudden I noticed the cover lens's that slide over to protect the lens when you shut it off were messed up. Onle 1...

The Canon series are fine camera's, but they seem to suffer from lens errors (check how many people suffered from this by googling lens error canon). 
The problem seems to come from sand/dust entering the body and jamming the lens gear. A handy person may be able to fix it, but I think Canon should have designed an enclosed lens gear so sand/dust can not enter. 

Camera's are commonly carried in pockets, so it is logical sand and dust can be expected. 

There are some issues with getting perfect focus in some situations.

My lens wont fully extend

My sister's camera was having the same trouble and after trying a few different things, i came across a solution that fixed her camera. Her error said "lense error, restart camera."

I held down the shutter button for a few seconds, then i held down the power button as well. I tried it once or twice and then it worked. I hope this helps!
