I have a Powershot A70 it will not record a picture, it will play a picture and will turn on and off but thats all. I have replaced the card but that doesnt seem to mater. any help you can give I would be greatful for. thanks

Answers :

I've had three of the A series Powershots, and there is a common problem with the lens assembly. The assembly either jams in the telescoping zoom gears, or in the digital imaging assembly in the lens, in both cases the camera will not take pics. I've had both problems, and was told by Canon to send it in for repair, because the entire lens assembly had to be replaced. So, if the reset, that Ekse suggested, doesn't work, then I'm afraid you'll need to send it in, or take it to an authorized service center. I now use a Kodac Easyshare, the camera is great, but their software isn't quite as good as Canon's.

You can try replacing it with new batteries.

PICTURE TAKING Wonder if anyone can help me? Whenever I try to take a picture on my C-350 Zoom there is a long delay, of about 3 seconds, between me pressing the button and the flash operating to take the picture. This means I can never take any action shots and am even struggling to take family snapshots. I've checked this against other cameras and they only seem to take 1 to 1.5 seconds. I've looked through the operating manual and can't seem to find any solution. Any help would be greatly
