I have owned a Canon G9 for a couple years. I dropped it back in May. Lens wouldn't retract. Did research - must get it fixed professionally. Instead of sending to CANON - I sent to Teleplan Digital Camera Repair (worthless hucksters) to save some money. STUPID! Horrible experience - just now received my camera back after them having it back and forth since June. After the fixed the initial problem I noticed having some focusing problems. Almost every picture wasn't focusing correctly. Not a

My Canon SI/IS Power Shot digital camera is not able to bring up image on normal operating picture modes. It does however still show stored pictures when I change back to images already stored in camera. In picture mode all I get is a dark screen and lines. What's up?

I was able to retrieve the pictures off the memory card but can't delete them. I tried putting the SD card in my Canon Digital Elph, same deal. I thought a reformat of the card in the camera would solve the problem but nope. It spits back at me "Memory Card Locked". The format option isn't even available on the Canon. Grrr, I TOLD my mom to get a Canon but she had to have this one because it's pink. Haha!

There's a tab on the side of the SD-card which sometimes slides to lock(=write protect) position when you enter the card in the reader/camera. Can you take photo's? Are you sure the tab is on 'write enable'? ... Digital Cameras

Missing pictures I recently went on a trip and took some pictures that disappeared from my camera. Later I started getting the message 'Card cannot be read' so I purchased another memory card.

I turn the camera off and back on and the missing pictures are gone again. WHERE ARE THEY???

I have a Digital Rebel 40 D camera less than 1 year old and I removed the memory card and I cannot get it to go back into the slot. The eject button is still depressed after I depressed it to eject the memory card out of it. This is the first time this has happened. I had the original Canon Rebel with over 100,000 pictures taken on it and this never happened. This camera has less than 5,000 shoots and not it is unusable. Any suggestions ? Thank you, Terry

Im no expert, but i would use a flashlight to look inside the memory card holder and see if anythings messed up, and maybe jiggle the eject button a bit, and just maybe the button doesnt come up again until you push in the memory card. give it a litt ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

I accidentally pressed the formatting button on my digital camera, canon powershot SD790 IS. Not knowing it erases all pictures. My question is can i get my pictures back, and if so how?

The answer is it depends on whether or not you conducted a "low level" format or not. Such a format will actually write over the card making photo recovery unlikely. But with Canon cameras, format is normally a quick erase (which is recoverable), U ... Canon PowerShot SD790 IS Digital Camera

In May we purchased a Canon Power Shot 590IS. We love the camera, however, battery life with camera is poor at best.
