Took out memory card to transfer photos. returned card to camera and it indicated memory card error shut down leaving lens out.


Never remove or insert a memory card while the camera is turned on. Try removing the battery, waiting about 30 minutes, and then putting in a freshly charged battery.

Change the batteries message keeps appearing even with fresh batteries. The camera turns on then immediately turns off What's up?


This actually a really common problem among Canon point and shoot cameras. There are a couple of methods that have worked well for others.

1. Open the battery compartment and remove the batteries. Then take a regular wooden pencil and place the eraser end down onto the battery contacts. Rotate the pencil to remove any corrosion. Sometimes a lack of proper battery contact will result in the low battery indicator.

2. Take a toothpick and wedge the tip under the battery contact and break it off. This will put more pressure between battery and contacts.

You can also try installing 3rd party firmware at http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_in_Brief
This is a bit technical and will probably void your warranty, but might be worth the try.

Every time I turn the camera on, it takes 2 to 3 minutes to come on and always makes me verify date and time. Why?


This usually indicates that your rechargeable Li-Ion battery is starting to lose its ability to retain adequate charge due to age and usage (about 500 charges or 18 months of 'normal' use). Try putting a new rechargeable Li-Ion battery.
Hope it helps!

I have a samsung 860 digital camera ang my problem is the lens... the lens is still retracted even its turned off... before it happened the camera have a low battery.. and when i charged the battery for...


This may be similar to another solution posted. Try heavy duty batteries - I used ACDelco Super Alkaline, but any brand of "heavy duty" AA should work. Make sure battereis are not cold; low temp causes any battery to lose power. If fresh heavy duty batteries do not help, it may need professional service. (DO NOT try to force the lens back to retracted position - something WILL break.)

My camera won't turn on


Take out the battery for like 10 minutes then put it back and turn it on.

It it doesnt work, then try putting a freshly charged battery on it.

The main batter will not hold its charge when left in the camera.


After 12 months use camera batteries will not hold a true charge, but they can still be used for clocks, or remotes. Buy new ones. We all have the same problem.

Unfortunately this camera is very bad for battery life because the zoom lens itself takes up alot of power. I would have the same problem with putting fresh batteries in and they would only last a couple of minutes.
I went to Blacks and asked their opinion and they suggested a Lithium Ion battery which came with the charger.
The charge only takes 30 minutes and I have been using my camera all week and the batteries are still going strong!
The price for the pack and charger together was a about $29 and it was totally worth the money

Focus error is displayed in my Camera...


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it. Never put in a freshly charged battery in any unit, let the battery cool down for five minutes or more, a freshly charged battery has higher voltage or power than normal battery and you may have a chance to damage your unit. Some people will say its not true cause they are doing it for a long time, they are just lucky I may say. Never take bad chance if theres any.
