What is the best option?

Hi! During last vacation trip my wife dropped the camera and broke one part which is a little lid that covers the pit for a memory card. What would you suggest to do? I bought it more than a year ago. I do not think I still have any warranty for the product. I will appretiate your response! Thanks

You shoud call Canon service center or any other Camera lab and ask for a repair quotation.Following the repair cost,you should decide whether it worth it. Good luck!

My camera is from Digital Concepts. I lost the botom cpver of it because it broke off.i pit in batteries and decided to put tape of it so they wont come out. I try to turn it


But it does not work.
Every battery cover of a camera has a switch, powering down the camera when the cover is opened. This is to prevent damage to the memory card. You should not remove batteries while the camera is writing to the memory card.
Find the little switch and press it. Then try to switch on.

Sanyo VPC-S1285 what is the best memory card for this camera and how do i put it in?


You want an SDHC Memory card UP TO 8GB's in size. A good one is shown at: http://www.jr.com/sandisk/pe/SAD_SDSDB8192A1/ but you can Google the above type memory cards and take your pick.

Then, open battery cover on camera. Slot for dropping memory card into is right next to opening for dropping in batteries. You will see a little picture on camera of a card in-between the battery openings when looking straight at the slot (with one corner appearing to be cut off which is how memory cards look) showing how card should go into the slot but also read instructions that came with memory card.

Two sets of photos?


I was having similar issues. My memory card was ejecting itself unkowingly. So some of your pictures are on camera memory (fills up fast) and some are on the memory card. My card was randomly ejecting with the door closed. So you never know if you are taking shots on camera of disk memory. You also seem to be missing phots when reviewing because the card is out of place. I am sending my camera to Nikon today.

Brand new Powershot S5 IS


Have you checked the batteries?

This camera should only use Alkaline AA batteries or NiMH batteries.

Are they flat or the wrong type

Also check that your memory card is installed properly and all covers are closed

I was on vacation and my pictures were on my disk when I RETURNED ,but now they are not there,I was using the Cannon Digital ixus 400, Is there a way to retreive them


Hi,
If the pictures were in the cameras internal memory there isn't much you can do unless the camera has an un-delete feature.
However if the pictures were on a memory card, firstly don't use the card.
There are many programs that can help you recover faulty formatted or corrupt memory cards. Do a search on google and try a few as some are better than others and some work better in certain situations than others.
searches to try
memory card recovery
memory card repair
Corrupted Memory Card

I wish you the very best of luck..
If I can be of further help drop me a line

Memory card not reading in canon a75


So as not to spoil your vacation, go buy yourself a new compact flash card locally. They should sell them anywhere electronics are sold, including WalMart, etc. See if you can get this new card to work in your camera. If so, then you can work on trying to get your current CF to work, by trying to format it in the camera. If you can't get a new CF to work in the camera, then you likely damaged either the pins in the CF socket in the camera, or some switch that is pushed when the card is inserted (to tell the camera there is a card in it). It is unlikely you will be able to have this fixed during your vacation, unfortunately.

My lens won't come out.


It sound like the lens mechanism was damaged during camera's drop. Only way (to my regret)is to sent it to be repaired in a professional lab.
