Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I am not a techie and I bought two Canon HV20 cameras for a small video project we are doing in Florida after reading some sensational reviews. We took the first batch of tapes to our "producer" who call me up screaming that they tapes frozeup her Mac laptop with Final Cut Pro. She then took it to her editor who is a techie and said it it froze up his Final Cut on a Mac Tower and it took him three hours to unravel the mess. I run a business and it seems really odd that Canon would ha

Thanks for using Fixya technical support. You have a nice day.
Yes..it's available from a reseller that works with Canon. If you can give me the actual model number from that unit, and perhaps a serial number, we'll be able to proceed.

OTOH, that question about the Canon and Final Cut, that's usual. Those folks don't even go to the same conventions or seminars.

Digital madness.

I filmed 12 hours of footage (6 tapes) over two days using two different Canon XHA1 cameras in HD mode using Sony HD tapes. 4 of the tapes are fine but two of the tapes are not showing a timecode consistently and I cannot get them to read in the camera or a Sony playback deck. I also cannot get Final Cut Pro to read any footage off the tapes. This is a desperate situation as the two tapes in question have footage from an actual wedding ceremony on them. It is strange because they were used at t

Dropped Camera I dropped the camera and now it wont turn on by the power button, but it does cut on when plugged to the computer to download pictures to computer. I took it to this guy around my hometown and he said it was the main circut board and it couldnt be fixed. He also said that he couldnt even get it to cut on the way that I do. After picking up my camera I tried my way of cutting it on and guess what! It worked. Please tell me what to do

I dropped my canon rebel xsi from about 7feet, but it still took pictures after i checked it. nothing cracked, not the lense, or the screen. but than about an hour later, when i tried taking pictures it said error 99. i took of the lense and tried cleaning it inside, and when i put it back on it still said error 99. it says shooting is not possible. turn the power switch to off and on again, or reinstall the battery. i did those, but the error 99 keeps poping up. i dont know what to do?


It could be several problems. One is a bad contact between lens and camera body, clean the contacts , check for damage and try another lens if you have one. Try another memory card. Another problem could be with the shutter which would need the camer ... Digital Cameras

CF error I own a Canon 400D. It worked perfectly until today. I inserted the cf card, and turned on the camera. It took a couple of seconds to light up, and I got a message that the cf card was faulty and needs to be replaced. I used another one...it said the same thing. I tried reformatting. It gave me an err99 and then said that "shooting is not possible" I formatted the card on the computer...no luck. The pins are in place, I checked.

I have a canon xh g1 camcorder with a timecode jackpack on it. i want to shoot music videos, and i want my camcorders free run timecode to sync to the timecode of a chosen song that has timecode on it with the audio. i want to be able to put my song into a playback device such as a cd player or a dvd player, and when i push play on the song, the timecode syncs my camera so i can have the same timecodes when i capture my video in final cut.

I have a Canon XH-A1s camcorder that I want to synch with my Sikonic Light Meter (cine mode). I know how to do that in theory, but need to connect the camcorder to Final Cut Pro's color tables to get a decent grey card reading from the camdcorder. So, in effect, I need to stream a signal (via Firewire) from the camcorder into FCP, bypassing the log and capture window. I've tried all sorts of ways, but have given up. Please, someone, tell me what I'm missing. Thanks.

Just had my Canon Powershot s1 is flash explode in my face at a meeting with over 30 people attending. I took a picture, the flash went up and suddenly it popped so loud that people ducked. There was also a fire/smoke smell coming from the flash area. Very scary. Those witnessing said they would back me up if suit filed. Checked the batteries and they work fine. The camera will take pictures still but without a flash. Hear of anything like this before? Recall issue?

I just got my camera back from Canon but it still isn't working right! I took it in because when I turned it on it said NO CF CARD. They fixed the metal prongs. Now, it still doesn't work to store or view photos on the camera without a cf card. I inserted my old CF (undamaged card) and formatted it and now it seems to take photos BUT nothing shows on my camera viewfinder when I go to take the photos. It shows I have over 3000 photos on my card but they will not display. Help!
