Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I have a new Canon 1000D. Battery is fully charged but when I turn it on the screen does not light and when I depress the shutter all I see is the ISO number and 'Busy'


Answers :

Check the manuals and see if there is a way to do a full reset / restore on it - maybe remove the battery for a while and also check the memory card ( assuming it is a digital one ) to make sure the memory card is not locked and try it again.

If it still does not work then I would contact the place where you purchased it and take it back and they can either look at it in store or replace it.

I can't seem to get my autofocus to work on my new Canon T1. The mode dial is switched to full auto, the fous mode switch is on AF, and the Image Stabilizer switch is in the "on" position. When I depress the shutter halfway, I get flash indication, some digital numbers, but no change in focus, no beeping, even though it is on and the focus confirmation light does not illuminate. I've searched through the manual to see what I am doing wrong, but can find nothing. Any help you can offer would


Hope I can help with some input to your problem. Let me suggest please that you switch the "mode" dial to "P" for program, check your ISO (I personally shoot ISO 100) and set it for a speed ISO 400 or lower. Most DSLR's use contrast to focus so a mir ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI Digital Camera

Minolta x-300 I have my father's Minolta X-300. It all seems to work, I fitted new batteries, but there is a delay in the shutter speed. When you look in the viewfinder, you see the speeds on the right and depending on the light/aperture/etc. 2 red lights light up the proper speed, but there is a flashing red light at 1 or 1/2 all the time,and the shutter works at that speed. Could anyone tell me what I have done wrong, my Dad used it some time ago and it was alright, so I have got it wrong. Tha


The X-300 is very similar to the X-700 minus a few features like program 'P' mode. The VF displays are very similar for metering and exposure. You can read the users guide for the X700 here on ... Digital Cameras

Hi, I have a two year old Canon PowerShot SX1. Recently began to think my shutter speeds have been on the low side, based on ISO, aperture, and general lighting conditions outside. Went out and purchased a Canon PowerShot SX130 just to compare. Took about 25 shots with each, same subjects each time, same settings, same position, about 15 seconds apart. Discovered that, on average, the SX130's shutter speeds were over 3 times higher than the SX1 for proper exposures. For instance, at ISO 100

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual

Black image Just bought a used Canon PowerShot A60 digital camera. Menus work fine but LCD is black. When shutter button is pushed half way down the lower light blinks.

Extreme overexposure Outdoor photos are mostly blank - white. Indoor photos are okay if there is very little light and I have it set on the "snow" setting. If there is light from a window then the indoor photos are over exposed as well, often with horizontal lines and/or blurry pictures. It seems that the shutter is open too long, but I don't know why. The ISO settings and the Exposure Compensation are set normally. I have 2 of these cameras, one works fine (but has a black fleck in the

My IR-500 will not focus whether I lock focus or not. When I half depress the shutter & get the green light I press the shutter & then get a severe motion blur. This occurs in all scene modes. It does not happen when using flash. Please advise -jim


Your shutter is staying open too long. Do you have it set on "bulb" or "time exposure" or something like that? It doesn't happen on flash pics because the flash is so short, it freezes the action. ... Olympus i:robe IR-500 Digital Camera

D60: I just got back from Certified Repair group where they said the camera is "okay". The Problem: It's like the ISO has shifted, and the readings on P, S, A, even M all result in a long exposure/wide open aperture reading. Frequently the reading is such that the shutter will not release, due to no focus or wrong light amount. Frequently the focus "peep" does not go off, and so the shutter will not release. Two weeks ago it was fine, don't think I changed anything, but it's like a setting is

Battery/Power trouble My C-770 is 2 years old and I still have the original L1-10B batterys that came with it. The camera goes through periods of non-use so has not been used excessively.

I switch the power button into the off position but it generally takes a min before it actuall
