Question about Canon Sure Shot Z155 Caption 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

2 Answers

Blinking "H" My Canon Z155 has a blinking "H" in the display area where the picture number should be, and will not take a picture. I have replaced the batter and just left the battery out for a while, but that didn't work either.

    I contacted Canon Tech support ---

    There are two conditions under which a blinking "H" will appear in the
    LCD panel: (1) when the film has been loaded incorrectly or (2) when the
    camera's self-test process detects an internal malfunction. If a
    blinking "H" indication appears, perform the following operations in
    attempt to resolve the situation:

    1. Rewind and remove the film using the rewind button, then remove the
    battery to clear the memory.

    2. Clean the contacts at the base of the battery compartment with a
    clean pencil eraser to ensure proper contact between the camera and
    battery.

    3. Replace the battery, power the camera back up and operate it as if
    it had film loaded, pressing the shutter release.

    If the "H" display stops blinking, the problem is corrected and you can
    continue using the camera normally. If the blinking does not stop, or
    if it subsequently returns, the camera should be examined by an
    authorized Canon service facility.

    For factory service, please forward your camera to the Factory Service
    Center shown below. When shipping your camera, please be sure to remove
    the film (if possible) and batteries. You are not required to send any
    accessories or manuals when shipping the camera. Be sure to include
    your name, street address (no P.O. boxes, please), telephone number, and
    a letter describing the issue with the product. If it has been less
    than one year since the camera was purchased, we ask that you also
    include proof of warranty in the form of a copy of your sales receipt.

    As we do not provide RMA numbers for service, we suggest using a
    traceable and insurable service (i.e. UPS, Federal Express, Priority
    Mail) to ship your camera. Please package the camera very securely in a
    sturdy shipping box to prevent damage during shipment.

    Please send your camera to the following Factory Service Center:

    Canon Factory Service
    1440 Chase Ave.
    Elk Grove Village, IL 60007

    Telephone: (800) 828-4040
    Business Hours: Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 midnight ET, and
    Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. ET (excluding holidays)

    Upon arrival at the Factory Service Center, your camera will be logged
    in to our repair database and assigned a repair number. Next, the
    camera will be examined and you will be advised of the findings. If the
    required repairs are covered by the warranty, the repairs will begin
    immediately. When the repairs are complete, the camera will be shipped
    back to you via Federal Express or UPS.

    The length of time for the repair will be dependent upon the nature of
    the repair and availability of parts, if needed. Usually, warranted
    repairs are completed within approximately ten to fourteen business days
    of the camera's arrival at the Factory Service Center. Please be
    assured that your camera will be returned as soon as possible. We
    appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.

    All decisions regarding warranty coverage are made by the Factory
    Service Center at the time of repair. If the repair entails something
    that is not covered in warranty, or if the camera is out of warranty, a
    written estimate will be sent to you at the address that you have
    provided. The repairs to your camera will not begin until you approve
    this estimate and make payment arrangements. If, after receiving the
    estimate, you do not wish to have the camera repaired, please inform the
    Factory Service Center of your decision as soon as possible. If you
    decline the estimate, the camera will be shipped back to you
    un-repaired.

    Once you have confirmed with your shipper that the camera has been
    delivered, you are more than welcome to contact us for repair updates.
    Please include your name, address, and telephone number, as well as the
    serial number of the camera, in all repair status inquiries. If you
    prefer to contact us by phone, please see the above contact information.

    Please note that our U.S. Factory Service Centers are unable to accept
    packages from or return equipment to addresses outside the United
    States.

    We hope this information is helpful to you. Please let us know if we
    can be of any further assistance with your Sure Shot Z155.

Low battery indicator, even after a new battery


You probably have a dead cell in your replacement battery. Camera batteries have a limited number of charge cycles, and this is not a rare issue with "aged" batteries. Also, when you get a new battery, buy a genuine Canon replacement and not one of the el-cheapo Chinese copies available online. In camera batteries, you really do get the quality and performance you pay for!

I have the same problem. The problem is with the zoom. When you turn your camera on, before shooting a picture, zoom slightly (but do not return to the initiall zoom setting) and shoot your picture. It works.If you need to zoom more, don't worry, any zoom change will alow you to take as many pictures as you want.The camera displays H only if you shoot a picture after turning on your camera, without previously zooming in and out outside the automatic zoom setting.
