Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Canon Powershot SD1200 IS. It takes 110V for re-charging the battery. However, I'm going to Peru, where there's 220V. The manual explicitly states not to use a transformer for travelers. What do I do?

You don't have too many alternatives without being able to use the transformer/adaptor, except to charges extra batteries here, and then take them with you. The manual exempts using the adaptors in foreign countries due to unstable voltages, or spikes. I, personally, would take a voltmeter and measure the voltage for the charger, ensure it's ok, and charge the battery. In case the battery became damaged, I would have at least one extra battery, and probably more. Here is a site that has some handy info on this subject:

Obviously, you should use the lower wattage transformer.

Hi, Unfortunately that's a well known issues with the Canon SD1200. There's no way to fix it as the issue is the engine built into. The way equivalent model to it in this years line up, which doesn't have that issue is the Elph 100.

Can i charge the camera without the charger


Technically, the camera doesn't need charging. As for the battery, the camera does not include any charging circuitry. You need to use the supplied CB-2LY charger. If you need a replacement, you can order one from Canon at

You probably just need to format the card in the camera. This will completely erase it so download any pictures you want to save first.

Battery Charging Problem


The problem is not with the batteris, but with your charger, you have to make sure it can take 220V or you will burn it. Look for a switch on it to change from 110V to 220V.

The AC adapter for the battery charger shoud work from 110V-240V with auto detection for voltage. Look at the marking on the AC adapter and the input voltage should show 110V-240V. Once you verify this, the charger will work on 220V and you will only need the outlet adapter.
