I have a Canon Digital

At 5 yrs old, it probably isn't worth trying to repair. There are so many newer products on the market with improved functions. Missing important shots makes it worthwhile to find a unit that works.

Buttons locked

I had the same problem. After e-mailing customer service and finding no help, I took the case off the camera and traced the wiring from the buttons to the circuit board. I unplugged the wires from the circuit board and plugged them back in. Everything is working like new! You'll need a small screwdriver set and something to keep your screws in. They are tiny and easy to lose.

Canon Power Shot IXUS 500 for Windows 7

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Re Canon IXUS 500. When I take a picture it looks ok in screen at time of taking. When the review pic comes up it is covered by white horizontal lines. Anyone help?

I think you'll be pleased. This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status, and you don't need a receipt. You could have bought the camera from eBay used, Canon would still fix it free (great company)! Please see this link for more info. Please note that for the S500, you need to act before January 31 2012, as after that date Canon is planning to phase out the free repair for the S500.
