I swapped memory cards with my daughter as mine had a bigger memory. However it didn't seem to work properly in her camera. Her camera now freezes on the opening screen when its switched on and does nothing else, the lens also refuses to go back in. I put the card back in my camera and now mine just switches off when you turn it on after making 3 blip noises! Now both cameras don't work with or without the memory card. I've checked the manual for mine which has no explainations. Also checked bat

I took my camera to the beach, took a picture and put it back in my bag. I then took the camera back out to take another picture the lens extended but then it went back in again it went to go back out but stopped and a loud beeping noise started and a message saying lens error restart camera. I don't know how to restart the camera and if that means turning it of then on it still doesn't work. What can I do now?


If your camera went into "standby" mode, the lens retracted and you may have thought it was off. You put it into the bag and slight pressure on a button reactivated it and the lens tried to come out but may have been prevented by something in the bag ... Canon PowerShot A480 Digital Camera

Dropped Camera I leant my camera to someone and now it won't turn on. The front of the camera is slightly separated from the back and top (the part with buttons on top). Any suggestions? I'm tempted to open it with a small screwdriver and manually put the camera back together but I'm afraid that it's probably not a very good idea. I can't bring the camera in for repair because I'm in Rwanda and can't necessarily find a canon expert here. Any help is appreciated!

We just received our brand new canon t3i in the mail. We formatted the card (a 2GB 700X Professional High Speed Error Free (SD) Memory Card Class 10) and immediately started shooting to test out the camera. Everything seemed to work fine until we tried to apply a filter to one of the photos. The entire camera froze. We even tried turning the camera off and it would not shut off. We ended up having to take the battery out and put it back in. When we did and turned the camera back on we received a


Sounds like there was an error while the camera was writing information to the card. You can try reformatting the card using a computer and a card reader, then replace it in the camera and format it from the menu. If that doesn't work and the camera ... Canon EOS 600D Rebel T3i Digital Camera

Canon a560 I just got my camera for Christmas, last night I downloaded 12 pictures from the camera (with the original memory card)  today I put in a 1GB card and when I just got home and tried to download my pics nothing is happening.  I tried going to the start menu and manually pulling it up and it says camera is not detected.  If I turn the camera off and back on I can hear the computer chime so I know it's detecting it somewhat.  I tried uninstalling the software and then reinstalling it and

Put a new fully charged battery in - the camera would lasted for a couple of minutes and then would not switch on. The battery works fine in an identical camera. Put in a second battery - that worked for a bit then started flashing battery problem and wouldn't switch on. 5 minutes later - it did switch on - lasted for a short time and then started flashing ERR 99, and then wouldn't switch on again. Battery works fine in an identical camera. 10 minutes later - started working again, but the Sigma

Camera lens movement mechanism seems to be damaged, as when switched on, the camera lens does not extend out completely and the object appears blurred on the screen. Similarly when switched off, the lens does not retract back completely and it needs a manual push to put it in a little more. But even then it does not go in fully. Rest of the functions are working well. The damage is the result of an accidental body weight going on the camera, when it was in on condition.

I took my memory card out of my camera,erased what was on it, add new pictures from my computer,to it,then put the memory card back in to the camera,and hooked the camera up to my television so I could view the pictures. But the card keeps saying "no image" when I start to view. But when I check the memory card on the computer,it's showing that all the pictures are on there. Not sure what to do. I know the memory card works,because I took a picture and it showed up on the television.


Your mistake was in assuming your camera would recognize any information your computer put on the card. It won't because of the difference in the operating systems. To get your card to work properly in your camera again, you will have to format it in ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

My Kodak V1233, isn't working right. If I turn it on, it will only turn on a second and extend the lense and then shuts off (it's fully charged). I can eventually get to take pictures, if I start by hitting the favorite button, and then the camcorder button and then quickly hitting the the camera button. I can take pictures, but can't see them, I only see a black screen. The camera will not power off this way. If I take the battery out, and then put it back in, and hit the favorite button,

Canon EOS Rebel XT with EFS 18-55mm lens. Trouble-free for two years. During a weekend of lots of use, suddenly the camera would not autofocus. Switching to manual focus, the camera worked. Then it started working okay in autofocus. Later that day quit altogether. (Would not release shutter even in manual mode.) Removed the lens and cleaned the contacts on both lens and camera, started working okay but only temporary. Went through several cycles of this over the weekend, so I'm not sure

My camera has been on a easyshare dock a very long time. One time when the dock was unplugged, I plugged it back in, and put the camera on it. It had a blinking red light, which is had never shown before. I upplugged the dock and replugged and put the camera back on. It seemed fine, but Christmas day when I wanted to take pictures with my camera, the zoom lens would not work, and then I couldn't view the pictures anymore. My husband went and bought a new battery, we put it in, and put it on t
