Question about Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera
I've had this camera for about two years now. It's always worked nicely, with the exception of poor quality when it's dark and no flash. But that's not the problem.
Sometime last year, it stopped recording video as well. From recording as long as the memory card had the space for it, to only recording a minute or so. I've even emptied the entire card (4 gigs of space!) and recorded, and it keeps stopping. It doesn't even seem to always have a set stopping time-- it's USUALLY three minutes, but it sometimes stop at just a few seconds, but that seems to happen more often when the card has a lot on it (but still sufficient space for more than three minutes of tape).
Anyone know the reason this is happening, or a solution? I really need to be able to record long videos for an event coming up.
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.
