Canon ixus 400

I have a problem with my ixus 400. When I insert the memory card it will not power up. When the memory card is removed it will power up and say no memory card. I don't know what may be the problem and not sure where to start looking.

Will my canon ixus 60 take a 16gb memory card

Yes. The IXUS 60 was designed to work with SD cards. Cards larger than 2GB are actually SDHC (the HC stands for High Capacity) and will not work in this camera.

Card is locked of CANON IXUS 960IS

There is a little slide switch on the side of the SD card that will lock it.  It could be that it got bumped the last time it was inserted, or the memory card could be defective.  I saw this happen with a SanDisk card that hadn't been removed from the camera.  Removing the card and sliding the lock switch back and forth, then re-inserting finally solved the problem.  It was a bit disconcerting when it happened.  I would recommend that you get a replacement memory card to use if it starts to happen repeatedly.

Canon powershot S400 will come on, but no functions will work. Won't even cut back off. After about 2 minutes get memory card error, than after another 2 minutes camera will shut down. Help will be...

Try inserting other compact flash cards, if the fault occurs with any card the camera can be assumed faulty. Sometimes the pins which connect to the card can become damaged when inserting and require straightening or replacement. You will need to have a service centre repair it for you. Good luck!

Canon S400 Pictures are over-exposed with horizontal lines-LCD ok

For both of you, this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Memory cards does not work

First remove battery and card and look in your flash card slot for any bent pins. If you see some, don't fret. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed).
It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's there, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.


If there are no bent pins, then the internal BIOS battery has likely run down and is causing this error. Don't attempt to fix this yourself. Canon will fix this for you for free, with free shipping, regardless of your camera's warranty status. See and print out the following advisory:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=223&modelid=8777&keycode=2112&id=27465

Also, see the following link for tips on contacting Canon regarding camera advisories. This particular post concerns a CCD advisory, but the tips are the same:
