Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Hi I have a Canon PowerShot 460 Digital Camera and it works great when I want to take pictures or make movies. The problem is that when I try to connect it to my computer to retrieve the pictures on the camera, my computer says that my camera isn't detected. I don't understand why that is because the camera's software works fine. I thought it was a problem with the USB cord, but it works fine with other electronic devices. The USB doesn't seem to work with the camera. I don't get whats the issue. Please help, thanks.

Plug the camera up in the normal way and take a look at 'My Computer'
If the PC is seeiong the camera it will indicate this by 'putting' up a new Remoceable drive Icon- If it has work at it from there.
If it did nmot - Remove the Camera software - A Windows computer does not need it to see exteranal drives.
Still in trouble - purchase an extern card reader. they are cheap.

Problem with my canon powershot 460 when shooting in day light the picture will appear too bright and with horizon tal lines


Hi!
It's most likely a broken shutter cable inside the lens. The solution is to change the shutter. It should get quite expensive so I believe it's not worth repairing this camera.

Sorry for the bad news.

Over exposure


Hey - have the same problem. All my still pictures are coming out overexposed, no matter what setting I use. Tried resetting, tried new battery, tried new memory card, tried different exposure settings. Nothing fixed it or affected it. However, my movie exposure works great so I can take movies just fine. Are you able to take movies with no overexposure?

Nothing displays in LCD screen, canon powershot S400 digital ELPH


Sounds like your LCD might have gone bad. The LCD might cost more than the camera costs, but there are a few places on eBay that you can buy a repair and replacement service from for pretty cheap.

Still under warranty? We sent our camera back for repairs after we had similar issues and the Canon support was fabulous. We could take movies but not stills (pictures).  Call for a Return Authorization number first. We had our camera back in a week or so.
