No connection between camera and computer, sometimes it connects but won't stay connected long enough to download pics. Its not the wire as it has worked with a different camera. I tried putting the memory card in another camera and using different computer but that didn't work and after taking the memory card out of that camera it no longer will connect either.

I have a 2004 Canon video camera (mini dv cassette) and a 2007 Macbook. With long-time intentions, I am finally getting around to connecting them, though when I did, the software included with the camera seemed to be out of date. I was hoping to easily download video into iMovie. Can it be simple? Do I need to get updated Canon software?
You don't specify which model you have, but all models produced in 2004 and later are compatible with Mac X OS 10 operating systems for downloading video. The software that came with the camcorder is primarily for downloading still images, not for vi ... Canon Digital Cameras
Canon Squeal I recently bought a Canon A1 35mm film camera off eBay. The outside is in amazing condition but the seller did not use the camera for a very long time so it had not been lubricated. I put a new battery in it and pressed the shutter release button and heard a squeal and the shutter was staying open way too long. I'm not experienced enough to trust lubricating it myself and wanted to know if you did this in your store and if you could give me an estimate on how much it would cost. I'm
This is common on the A series Canon cameras. It's a flywheel governor on the side of the mirror box that needs to be lubricated. We do that for $48. Let us know if we can help.\015\012\015\012Crystal Camera Repair\015\012Ashevil ... Digital Cameras

Switch glitch When i turn on my camera it goes off again within a few seconds (or maybe less). I have to turn it all the way off (slowly) and on again. Sometimes it stays on (at least long enough for a photo) and other times not. Has been getting worse so now the camera is pretty useless. I am presuming that the switch has had it (any other suggestions?) Interestingly while it was under warranty i had switch problems and it was replaced so this is the second switch on the camera. Is the switch a

When i try to download my images the camera just turns off.

My Nikon CoolPix 5700 seems confused about OFF and ON, and now I can't take a photo becase it won't stay ON long enough for me to press the shutter release. The problem appears a bit like a low-battery issue, but I have been placing totally recharged batteries (as fas as I can tell) in it (two different ones) over and over, and still the camera turns on and off at will. Any ideas? Is there a way to totally reboot the camera, like one reboots hard drives? Thank you.

When filming a video my camera shut down after 10 minutes, even though there was enough memnory for 6 hours of video. How do I change the settings so it will stay on until I shut it off?Its a Sony Cybershot DSC W150.
It is extremely unlikely that a digital camera has enough memory for 6 hours of video unless you are shooting at very low resolution and/or frame rates. Even highly compressed video eats MBs a second.\015\012\015\012This camera has a built-in ... Sony Digital Cameras
