Hi I have a Canon PowerShot 460 Digital Camera and it works great when I want to take pictures or make movies. The problem is that when I try to connect it to my computer to retrieve the pictures on the camera, my computer says that my camera isn't detected. I don't understand why that is because the camera's software works fine. I thought it was a problem with the USB cord, but it works fine with other electronic devices. The USB doesn't seem to work with the camera. I don't get whats the iss

Won't Focus I have had my Canon Powershot SD1000 for about 9 months now. I have had problems with the lens error and it getting stuck but have always been able to get it to work eventually. I had another bout with the lens getting stuck, was able to get it unstuck but now it won't focus at all. Normally I press the shutter down half way to get it to focus on my subject, but now it simply won't focus. I'm wondering if maybe my settings are off, or if it's an internal problem. Any suggestions
You still have a bad lens the internal focus gear is out of alignment. or is offset. a repaired or new lens is required. Sorry :( ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

My canon powershot a95 display screen does not show an image when I am trying to take a picture. The image that is displayed is black with white lines and varies in the amount of black and white. No matter what setting I turn to, I can not get the image to appear. It had been working fine till a couple of days ago. It has not been dropped. I get the same result when trying to view a picture of a card. Is there any way to reset the camera?
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. ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera
PowerShot SD300 New to this stuff but flash isnt going off at all. Taking pics outside works perfect or if there is enough light.....Just called Canon and they were not that helpful at all. Told me i can send in at my expense but probably would cost about $90 or more to fix and/or I can upgrade my camera (for models that are older than I can get for under $200....they want to offer them at $150). Anybody have an issue with the flash not going off? the only thing the canon buy told me is there mi

Canon Powershot SD450 E18 problem: The camera lense would not open and reported error code E18 on power-up and then would shut down. I followed a procedure on the web for this issue and got the camera lens to open and it was working (able to take pictures for about a minute). When I powered down, the lense did not completely retract. I tried re-powering on but nothing happened. The camera is not getting any power. I figured the battery died so I re-charged it.

The batteries in my canon powershot A460 get used out really fast. Too fast! I tried using rechargable and unrechargable batteries, bought a whole bunch by now and allways the same problem. I know a bit about electronics and I'm guessing the supply circuit in the camera is not working as it should, my opinion is that some capacitor has a wrong value.
Hi,That is a possibility but in most cases the camera's are just very very greedy and eat the power like a starving dog.The best way around this problem that i have found (my camera does the same) is to purchase plenty of batteries, prefe ... Canon PowerShot A460 Digital Camera

Hey, I just purchased a Canon Powershot A720 IS today and as I was messing with it the LCD screen just went black. The icons on it show up, but when I take a picture its just black, as if the shutter isn't open or something. Is there a setting I accidentally hit or what? Help please, I'm going to Germany in 4 days and need to get this all worked out.
First turn on the camera and press the DISP button on the back of the camera (lower left corner). The DISP button manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. But if that doesn't fix it, then take the camera back for exchange. Black pic ... Canon Digital Cameras
