Playback function My Canon Powershot SD 600 has suddenly stopped going to the playback mode. The switch has three functions- stills, movie and playback. It suddenly stopped showing the playback when I move the switch to position. This means that I cannot do any of the functions that require me to use playuback, like for example erase. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unless your an electronics expert, you run a very high degree (89-100%) of probability that the camera will never work again. If your cameras aren't under warranty, than call the canon north america offices, and explain the problem they will more th ... Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

The video camera function on our PowerShot SX100 IS has switched to a feature that seems to be designed for emailing video files. We get a "compact" text box when switching to video, and there's a little envelope icon in the upper right. The problem is that we're ending up now shooting videos that only show up in tiny form, where before we had higher quality, bigger (view wise) clips. Any idea how to switch that Compact feature back to Not Compact (full-size?)? Thanks!

Try putting the camera in video mode, then call up the menu and set the resolution to a larger sized image...that might get it corrected. ... Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera

Wierd Antics Hello. My Sony DSC-W5 opens and closes three times when I switch on the power. After this little ceremony it seems to work fine. I get the same open and close action when I switch off the power as well. This has been happening for months now...thankfully the camera still functions but does anyone have an idea how to fix this? or what caused it in the first place? Thanks.

Check your power button or switch, it may need cleaning of contacts... ^_^ ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W5 Digital Camera

Power failure Canon G5 has had a complete power failure. Will not come on at all in any mode. Battery is fresh and functions in other cameras.

Does anyone know where to get Canon parts cheap?

When I turn on the camera, it will AF once, then nothing. None of the menus will work, none of the functions work, cannot review pics. If I switch to manual and back to auto, it will AF once.

We have a Casio EX-Z150. It was working fine, while taking pictures it suddenly froze with the last picture on the screen. It would not change pictures, modes, on/off , nothing.

My new Samsung WB650 camera has just frozen, whilst I was reviewing the various functions. It won't respond to any of the controls, and won't even switch off. If I remove and replace the battery it has no effect. If I then switch it on the 'on' light comes on, but it still wont respond or switch off. Can you let me know what has happened and if there is way to restore normal function?

I am aware of possible cause being the On/off switch under mode dial and how to replace that, and have a new mode-dial/power switch part, but while the camera is open where the switch can be function tested at ribbon cable connection, I need a check-list of the other most likely causes in the order of most likely to least likely.
