Canon VIZCAM 1000

I recently purchased a used VIZCAM on e-bay to use in my classroom. It only came with the camera and the power supply. I want to use it with my Laptop and a SmartBoard. What type of cables do I need? Are ther any instruction manuals (or copies) available. I would also like to know how other teachers us the VIZCAM in the classroom.

I recently purchased this Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS/1000 from Best Buy and happily used it for about 6 weeks, when suddenly the AF button won't work, and when I try to use manual (since I was very...

Does the lens have an aperture ring? Is it set to "A" when you try to autofocus? Have you removed the lens and put it back on? Is it on correctly? Even though Best Buy won't help, if necessary, the camera is still under warranty from Canon.

The Canon PC 170 copier is not coming on. There is a click sound, but no warming up and the light for the number of copies wanted does not cut on. It was storaged unplugged in the classroom during the...

Sounds like a bad power supply. The clicking is a solid state relay coming on, but it's either not putting out anything from there (ac 120v power supply) or the DC power supply is bad. Not a user fix...sorry! Call a qualified service tech anytime you are dealing with power issuses!

My Canon FS200 DVC isn't transferring files

Hi mate, I had same problem as you, took the cam into store and teh guy helped me out.

Make sure you get the recharger for the camcorder, then plug it into teh camcorder and also to the wall power when you are uploading the files. It can needs an extra power boost to get the files onto your computer.

- so plug in your camcorder to computer
- also plug in the battery recharger cord to the camcorder

Should work fine!!

My Canon sd 1000 won't power on. Battery is OK.

Check to make sure the batteries you are using have enough strength and volt power, if not it wont work. If they are really cheap, and last only a weak in the remote, they wont power up a camera.

Canon Vizcam 1000 fading fast

Hello Pelota, Here is what is happening, most web cams are charge-coupled device CCD type image devices they work by caturing the image as it changes the charge along the surface of a capacitive matrix. Over time this matrix begins to break down. This is what you are experiencing. The cheaper the camera the faster the breakdown of the matrix. It can not be helped. The fact is as all of these digital cameras get older they will begin the dim and have poor color resolution due to the CCD matrix decaying. I hope this helps.

There must be a driver conflict with the graphics, try uninstalling the cam software and re installing and use a different usb port. I assume there are no lines after a reboot so update your pc's graphics card driver and the latest driver for the cam. If you are having general graphic problems, go to My computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and in the list look for graphics adapter, click on the '+' sign to your graphics adapter and right click and select uninstal. reboot pc and the graphics controller will be re installed and the driver also automatically
