Question about Canon PowerShot A430 Digital Camera

Video mode shuts down by itself

When I use my camera in vvideo mode it has begun shutting itself off, long before the memory card is full ( I checked this),


The batteries are also fully charged.

Any suggestions please?

    Thanks, but it was working correctly before with the same memory card, so it must have been something in the settings - I've been poking at those and I think I've fixed it now, although I'm not sue how :-)

    Thanks again

Powershot SD1000 automatically shuts down in Camera mode


In any mode that the camera will stay on, press the "Menu" button and navigate to the RESET option and try to reset the camera. See if this will get the camera to function properly.

My Canon Powershot SD1000 acts like it shuts off when I try to upload pics to my computer. When I plug the usb into the computer and the camera into the usb the Camera will still work perfectly fine...


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Internal memory


When a memory card is inserted into the camera, it automatically switches over to saving the images to the card. You don't need to do anything else.

My canon is not powering on. I have the battery fully charged but nothing will turn on.


I had this problem with a Sony Digital Camera once. The memory card was full and it would not power on. I replaced the camera and was preparing to throw it away and tried turning it on one last time and only then did it briefly display a memory full error then quickly shut itself off.

I erased the memory and afterwards the camera worked fine.

So, check and make sure your memory card isn't full. If it is unload the contents onto your computer, erase it and try again.

Powers up and then shuts off


This should work for the A520. With NEW or freshly recharged batteries, remove the camera's memory card, then turn on the camera. You'll probably see an E30 error. Next turn off the camera. Next insert the memory card, and turn on the camera.

If the above doesn't work, the following blog outlines some other repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

Pentax otio 33lf camera suddenly won't go


Try removing the card and see if it will turn on with just the internal memory--or try different memory card if you have one.
Had a somewhat similar problem with a new 1GB card when I shut camera off while it was still saving an image. Camera would come on, take a picture all by itself and freeze up. After using a couple of other cards it magically worked on the bad card
