SOURCE: Problem for Canon PowerShot S500 / IXUS 500

Can you still take pictures and if so can you download them and the image shows up? If so this means the LCD itself or an internal connection is bad/defective. You will want to have the camera serviced.
You can find a service location and arrange repairs at this link.

SOURCE: I need to take a 300 ppi/dpi photo

Hello,

Nice camera :) However it "only" takes pictures up to 180 ppi. You can't change it.

It might be easier to take your pictures as normal and then change their resolution to 300ppi in photo processing software like e.g. photoshop / photoshop elements (commercial) or gimp or irfanview (free).

NB, while it's not going to help here much, you might find this reading interesting:

Hope this helps,

Depending on your OS, you can download the latest driver for your system directly from Canon here. Remember to select your OS in the dropdown tab to be able to see the available downloads.

But I'd also recommend that you take this as an opportunity to consider utilizing a much safer method of downloading your pictures and videos. Please see this link, as it describes the use of a USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive these days (some places less than $2 online with shipping).

I have just replaced the battery pack in my Canon SX 200 is camera. The battery was bought from a camera dealer, therefore not counterfeit, but when I turn on the camera it asks me to replace the battery...


Mostt batteries have an issue of SHELF LIFE and so if the battery that was given to you was on SHELF for a long time then it can develop BACK EMF and so will not charge to the limit designed. So check the date on the pack and if this is more than 6 months ago , it is better to claim for a refund or replacement. If your camera did not have any other issue this is the only possibility.
The first charge also must be done for 8-15 hours.

Where do I get a new battery


You can only make yourself a new one. The Che-ez brand went out of business a few years ago and there is no hope to buy a replacement battery from the market. This solution only works if you have the original Li-Ion battery with you, as the plastic frame is needed to re-build it. Strip the outside labels on the non-working battery by hand to expose the battery cell pack and the overcharge protection PCB (circuit board). With extreme care, unsolder both off the plastic frame from the inner side of the battery's electrical contacts. Go on ebay and buy a generic Li-Polymer cell pack (search "Lithium Polymer Battery 3.7V 380mAh for MP3 MP4 SAT NAV"). Again with extreme care solder the two wires sticking out of the new battery pack back into where the old cell pack came off (check polarity carefully). It is a bit oversized but it will still go into the battery slot without much problem. If you have done even right, you should now have a working camera again.

Where can I buy a film pack and paper??????????????????????


Polaroid manufactured their last run of film for that camera this summer,so go on the WEB and search Polaroid 600 film (or ask a a local camera store). If you really like this camera, you might buy some extra, nut you already know about the battery, so don't buy more than you will use before the expiration date. When the film is gone, the camera will be useless, unless someone like Fuji,who makes the film for the camera in Japan, decides to keep making it.

I have a Canon SD1000 battery pack issue.


Hello,
I have a Canondigital ixusi which had the same problem and I purchased three new batteries, but found that all of them showed the "replace battery pack" message when fully charged. I have solved this problem by cleaning all the terminals on the batteries and in the camera very thoroughly with alcohol and Q-tips. Even though the terminals look completely clean, there must be a slight film which is preventing good contact. The contacts in the camera are spring loaded and I suspect they are not making a very good conection to the battery so any contamination is making a high resistance to the flow of electricity. Hope this helps - it worked for me.
