I'm experiencingdifficulty in transferring photos to my pc from my recently purchased Canon XSI, ie: Windows does not recognize the USB cord from my camera to a port in my pc. My solution disk, ver 18.1 is damaged, I thought that I may have not fully downloaded the disc, and my local camera shop indicated that I may be able to download the disk from a Canon Website. That being the case, your assistance is requested, please. Some suggestion, too, that my pc may be the culprit. Thanks, Ron Russell

JVC Everio GZ-MC500 Camcorder. Video camera was left on unintentionally in the bag, and recorded around 1.3 GB of video. When this was discovered, the machine was switched off, and then back on again to capture video, at this point, the camera switched itself off. I thought it had just run out of battery power, but later found out that it would not switch on with a new battery, or with the mains adapter. Can you give me any advice on what may have happened, and whether it may be easily fix

Recently had to ship my canon Digital RebelXS/ 1000 digital camera for repair. It would keep showing me an error 99 code. the camera is only 7 mths old. I'm just learning to use this camera.. Is it something I could avoid or done to give me this code. I asked the place I had to ship it to what canon had done. All I was told there was a short in the camera and they cleaned the lenses. I really like to find out what shorted out.


This is what the canon people say to do for error 99Read this!!!The guy at tech support listened and then told me that the lens contacts were dirty and to get a pencil with an eraser on the end, just a regular old ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

My camera is less than a year old but has recently been giving problems with the battery connection - I believe. The battery shows full and the camera works perfectly, then with no indication why the camera will not turn on. When left and then turned on later it sometimes works again, without the battery being charged in the meantime and with it again showing full. As I am going on holiday in 2 weeks I have not time to send it back to cannon under guarantee. Can you suggest anything I can check?

Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin

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

Fuji Finepix I get black lines across images... I have studied previous answers and think this may be a terminal problem! If it is the CCD, a) what is a CCD and b) is it fixable, or should I give up and get a new camera. I think this camera is over 2 years old. Pity, it has been very good for this ignorant user!

No power I turned the camera on and the lens came out then the screen went blank. I thought the battery may be low even though it was recently charged, so I put it on the charger. The orange charge light did not come on. I removed the battery and checked it with a voltmeter and it was showing 8.4 volts. Everything points to a blown fuse or something like that. Is there a fuse in the camera? Hope you can help Neil Low

Even formatting or replacing the card, the error remains. Does anyone know what this error means ? Tks a lot !!!

Batteries need replaced constantly. I am using 2 AA alkaline as instructed. As soon as I put them in it says batteries are low and shuts off. This is happening with all brands of new batteries. What's the problem? Occasionally I may get to take 1 or 2 pictures before this happens, usually none. Seems to be a prevalent problem with this particular camera. This is my 2nd Canon and I'm pretty sure there won't be a third. Canon should recall these cameras and either fix them or give a reduction on a
