Hi Have you edited the image outside the camera? If so save the image using Canon's Zoombrowser, this usually corrects the problem.

My Canon powershot a480 digital camera keeps on scrolling when i view the picture


When you say that the camera keeps scrolling when you view a picture do mean it scrolls to the next picture ? If so, you probably have it set to Slideshow which will automatically scroll to the next picture. Go to the main menu and look for Slideshow, if it is on turn it off.

My Canon Power Shot SD 1000 has lost some images... some say "unidentified image" and other say "Incompatible JPEG". How do I recover these images... i need them for work.. thanks


I have met this problem before. But this doesn't mean your image lost... If you see it on your computer, it will be all OK unless there is a hardware error. This problem (in fact, it isn't a real problem) caused by you have watched the images on your PC, and do a edit of the images, such as flip or PS, the cameras can't identify these actions. If not, there will be something wrong with your SD card or Card slot.

Cannot delete videos from Canon A480 camera. I try to delete and it says protected. thanks.


Unprotect it first.

Full details are in the "Protecting images" section of the manual (page 92 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

Unidentified Image


When a camera records a picture certain information is written in the image file. When you see it in another camera, the second camera reads the stored information and may be able to display the name the date and so on depending on the information stored.
However if someone sent you pictures attached to an e-mail message, they are often compressed and the information about the images may not be available. So, not fin ding the name of the image, the camera says unidentified image.

If you want you can rename them, but you will not be able to restore the meta information that was stripped off the image when it was sent by e-mail. Identified, or not the images are still viewable.

Canon does not let me view some pictures on the LCD screen


My guess would be that the program you are using in your computer is not a Canon product. If this is the case, it is possible the program may have automatically adjusted the image, red eye correction or ? thus changing the image and making it impossible for the camera to read the file.

Incompatible jpeg


Hi there
Save all the pictures to the computer, then format both cards using the menu in the camera, then take a picture and see if it takes them well.


Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!

"incompatible jpeg image" message


Unfortunately Windows in particular can mess with the contents of the card just by reading it - it creates a thumbnails file on the card without asking etc etc.
It shouldn't mess with the actual pictures unless you have rotated them or perhaps removed the card without safely removing the hardware first.
Try reformatting the card on the camera and you should be good to go from there.
