Question about Canon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I have 2 Canon Power Shot 70 cameras (one was a gift) The oldest I have owned for approximately 4 years...the other one slightly less. About one year ago while on vacation, the camera refused to take photos....all I got on the screen were a series of light pink-lavendar horizontal lines in a black background. Last week while at church camp the other camera did exactly the same thing!! Consumer Reports is recommending a Canon camera and at this point I am "gun-shy"! Do you have any suggestions? This problem is obviously a design flaw. Does Canon stand behind their products?? Thanks for your help! Sindrely yours, **** Dorsch

Yes it is a design flaw, basically what happend is the image interpereter and preprocessor are shot.. The integrated method of the design leaves the irrepirable.. I dont use canon products except for printers and scanners when it comes to camera's i use Hp or Pioneer, Consumer support suggested a new camera cause they know where they messed up

Erro 70 on my canon T1i


Hi there:

This is Canon's word on the Err 70 message:
- Turn the power switch to <ON> to turn on the power again.
- Remove and re-install the battery.
- Use a Canon lens.
- If the instructions above do not solve the problem, please contact your nearest Canon Service Center.


It appears you have done all this. The camera will need servicing. If it is less than one year old, since date of purchase, you should call 1-800-OK-CANON and put in a claim for failure within warranty, and Canon ought to fix it for you for free.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I have a Canon power shot A520 , couple of years old. Just started saying "no memory card", even tho I've replaced the memory card w/ a new one and changed the batteries. When I try to reformatt...


Is the new card more than 2GB? 4GB "SD" cards are almost always actually SDHC (high capacity) cards. Anything larger than that certainly is (and a few 2GB cards as well). SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

I have a canon power shot A495 digital camera. problem with camera is new or fully charged batteries discharges after taking 4 to 5 photos when taken with flash


all the canon cameras batteries do not last more than 2 years.
the best would be to purchase a new battery which you can find at any Target, OfficeMax of a sort department stores.

My Canon Powershot A95 was exposed to seawater over a year ago. It now, more or less, has a mind of its own. No controls respond, and it takes pictures on its own


The salt in the seawater corrodes the circuits causing your current problems. Repairs would eventually be more than replacing the camera.

Canon Warranty


I have the same problem... The composition of CCDs on several products of different brands have the same problem (heat and humidity will damage the chip). Contact a SERVICE CENTER OF CANON in your area and request instructions. They have to replace/repair their products free of charge to the customers.
I sent an email today to CANON USA requesting instructions.

Good luck!
