Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera

The recorded movies are fuzzy

When I try to play the recorded movies (by A540) on my PC, the result have been fuzzy recently. Not sure whether there's a setting needed to be adjusted or not.

Hey Jennyw,
I would make sure that you are shooting the video on the highest recording pixels available, which on this camera is 640x480. You could also increase the frame rate to 60 frames/second. Directions on how to do this are on page 41 of your user manual. I have included a link to download your manual in case you no longer have it. I hope this helps!

I deleted all pics from A540 but ended up with "no image" message on black screen. The shutter won't open either. It appears to be stuck in viewing mode.


hi,

first: be sure the battery is full charge.

second: by a compressor try to blow around the shatter and lens .

third : 3 or 4 times try to inflict a blow on the lens by your palm .

at the end see the result


good luck

On playback, I get the message this motion image cannot be played, why?


Each video recorded on camera creates a thumbnail picture file which is linked to the movie file, but is stored in another folder. When you delete the movie file on camera via PC, this thumbnail file will be become "orphaned", left in the camera and causes this error message "this movie image cannot be played". You also cannot delete it! At this stage the only solution is to first make sure you do not have any remaining pictures left and format the sandisk. From then on, never delete the movies in camera from PC but only direct from the camera. Posted by Forest.

I bought my camera in july 2006 - recently it runs


I´ve got the same issue. If you use the batteries that were in A540 in another camera, does it still work?

Copying Video ---- TO ---- my Canon A540


Yes, if you use a card reader, and do not change the file name, AND place the videos back in the same folder it should work.

I have a Canon A540 digital camera . we can copy video clips to DVD and this can be played onto my notebook BUT we cannot play these clips through the DVD recorder onto the TV. Can you please...


Hi, DVD players can only play DVD Standard format and some standard codec (divx,...), so if you want to play your clip in a DVD player you must convert them to the standard format... an easy way is useing nero express:  nero express > video > DVD, then add yor clips, make a nice menu and then burn it on DVD. Also you can use Nero vision for better menus or Ulead DVD movie factory for even better Menu if you can spend money. ;) I hope this helps.

Panasonic tz5 movie files will not play in Windows only Quicktime


If the movies are recorded as .avi, then you will have to use QuickTime. One way to avoid having to select QuickTime each time is to hold the SHIFT key, right click over the video file and select "Open With". Now select QuickTime (otherwise select other programs) and scroll to QuickTime from the list and you should see a check box at the end of the list and make sure its checked. Here is a screen shot:

Now click OK and the next time you open the camera movie files, it will automatically open in QuickTime.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

Canon powershot a540- using video mode and I do not want sound recording


There is no way to disable the audio on the camera unless you cover the microphone which I wouldn't really suggest. You would have to remove the sound later once you upload the video to your computer and put it into Windows Movie Maker or some other editing software.

Audio problem


I have an A540, so I do not know much about the A560, but try putting the SD card in a card reader connected to your computer rather than using the USB output on the camera. You could also check if the computer's sound is functioning properly by attempting to play back a CD on it.

Go into your menu (the botton on the lower right corner), scroll right to set-up. Go down to volume, select that and go to the bottom of the volume list to playback volume and adjust it through there...

hopefully that will help you out a bit
