    I have the same problem unless I strictly use Lithium batteries.. then it stops.

  • Anonymous Feb 01, 2009

    I HAD the same problem until I noticed that I had to tell the camera what type batteries I was using. (NiMH rechargeable batteries are normally 1.2 VDC, straight carbon/zinc primary cells are nominally 1.5 VDC. Other types of batteries have different voltages so you can see the camera must compensate for those voltage differences.)

I try to take a picture in AF mode while the confirmation light in the viewfinder blinks, a picture cannot be taken, but in MF mode picture taken correctly what is the problem?..


It's attempting to tell you that AF has failed. I'd expect low light, low contrast, reflective subject like a mirror or chrome. A solid colour wall with no contrast will also cause a AF failure. Auto Focus relies on contrast. Switching to manual mode shuts off the system and you can take a picture with nothing in focus.

Olympus 7010 shuts down in picture mode - not a battery problem


I will tell you how I did it for the same price you were going to charge me for a solution. To ask how I did it once I found a solution without a fee goes against your business model.

Camera shows batteries need replacing after putting in fresh ones


Try cleaning the battery contacts inside the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. If the sticky coke got inside the camera, it will only get worse as the phosphoric acid does more damage.

It will not focus and not let me take pics


A few things to try:

- Verify that your is set to AutoFocus (AF) mode and not manual.
- If you have another lens or can borrow one try it. This can rule out a lens problem.
- Refer to your manual for instructions on cleaning the lens contacts (both on the camera and on the lens).
- Are you in a low-light environment, does the AF assist light blink?
- The clicking sound may indicate a lens problem.
- If you are still covered by a warranty, consider having it looked at.
- If you are out of warranty, atleast you can narrow it down to the camera or the lens.

Hope this helps,

Canon Powershot SD1000 Uploading Pics To Computer Problem


Since your two cameras have the same problem with the same computer, I would like to suggest you to connect those cameras to another computer. It looks like the problem is on the computer side.

Slow record time/goes into standby mode


Hi,

It sounds as if it is working mechanically, but there is a software fault.

Try downloading a new driver for it (or use the CD which you may still have)

They are available free Here.

(Please contact again if this does not solve the issue; If it does, Please rata as Fixya! so others may benefit. Thanks.)

Camera shuts down when I go to take pic mode


Ahhhhh! I have the same problem occuring!! I cleaned all of the battery terminals and replaced the batteries, and STILL have this problem, although not as frequent. It always happens when I take the best pics, the image shows on the screen for a fraction of a second, and then the whole camera shuts off. Again, I can play back images with no problem. What's the deal here?? It's become so frustrating that I just want to throw the camera in the garbage. It has been such a good camera up until this point. PLEASE, someone help us here!!!
