Canon SD630

I looked at the manual and found that the codes are not listed in the book. The only suggestion they have it to take the battery out and put it back it. Turn the power on and see what happens.

Sometimes plugging it into an electrical outlet if you have one for your camera can reset it as well.

If the error doesn't go away, you should contact Canon and see what the error code means.

This procedure is typical of all their cameras when an error code is displayed.

Flash is Stuck

You have to yank on the flash, its the only way. Mine gets stuck most of the time, but does open on its own on rare occasion. it must be a defect of the model.
