Think it is a file issue where the file you have copied to disk is not compatible with what your player can handle. Trick is to convert the file into one that your player can read. Plenty of freeware around for that - just Google it.

This should be covered in the camera manual - it will probably be a menu setting.

If you mean the battery for the time/date in you camera, it does not have a compartment for it, the battery that keeps the time/date is internal. It is usually a button cell like what a watch uses. To replace the memory battery requires to take the front and back panel off your camera, not an easy task. Most of the time it is easy and requires you to remove all the tiny screws around the camera, once you remove all the screws you can pry open both front and rear panels, you do have to hunt for that little button cell battery as every camera has it in a different location?

Camera shake? When you zoom and make things bigger, you also make movements bigger. So a relatively small movement could manifest as camera shake. Make sure your shutter speed is high enough.

Canon PowerShot... | Answered on Nov 07, 2014

if you see lens error on back of lcd and lens barrel is stuck, then your camera would need replacement of zoom control gears or a whole lens unit. Either way your local repair shop would charge you almost same cost depend on time consume. the cost would be around $75 to 135 depend on what they realy want to charge.
Thanks and best regard!

I'm out of practice because my camera suddenly stopped working 6 months ago, but I don't recall having a problem with blurry pictures when I used the zoom. Sometimes, it takes a few seconds for a pic to come into clear focus. I think the trick is to just keep working with it.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

The best way to download pictures and videos 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 and videos from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto for pictures and iMovie for videos.

This is all I can do for you. Just sending a picture of the battery door spring from my PowerShot G9. I think Canon uses the same principle more than once. I hope this can help. 0544a321-ab53-4e6c-8c99-9fab3dd0040d.jpg
