Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

The shutter speed priority setting on my Canon 40D keeps jumping to a different speed that I haven't set. E.g - set at 200, jumps to 25 when I go to take a photo. I have spoken to Canon regarding the problem and they have suggested that I clear the user settings. This initially solved the problem for all of an hour, but the problem has now started up again. I'll probably be sending it in, as I think it might be a problem with the hardware, just thought I'd check here first. Any suggestio

Canon Powershot G10 image quality problems... I have had my Canon Powershot G10 for 2 years and have had the same problem from the start... it is now driving me mad! When viewing photos in anything other than the supplied Canon Zoom Browser or Photo Professional the quality is poor. The images are noticeably blurred and appear grainy. I normally shot in manual mode with ISO80 and record images in RAW+JPEG. Processing the RAW photos seems to slightly improve the blur (though it is still there)

My canon 20d stopped taking photos for no aparant reason. Kept getting error 99 and when I re insert the battery it starts clicking on it's own whether turned on or not. I sent it to Canon repair who wanted to charge me more than it was worth to repair but that was before they even started to analyse the problem. I decided to buy a brand new 20d. Put in the battery and the CF card and exactly the same thing has happened. I can get the cameras to come on but when I press the buton the flash jumps

Battery Problems CANON A80 Battery Problems Have had a CANON A80 for nearly three years. The first two years were great. The batteries would last for ages between charges, and with a new baby we took lots of photos. Then the batteries started playing up. Fully charged batteries would only last a few days, or if left would not power up at all. Have replaced the batteries, and the chargers with no improvement. Here in NZ there is a huge wait for repairs, so if it is beyond repair I?ll just re

3 times i've the same problem with my camera, 3 times they've sent it back. The problem still exists. A new battery, properly charged by me, the camera takes between 1 and 5 photos and then the camera goes dead. I was told by Canon that the battery lid on the camera was causing a short, they said 'Problem solved.' Nope, the problem is still there and i've run out of extended warranty. Please, please help.

Hi there. I suddenly have a problem focusing my canon digital rebel xt. I have done nothing different to it, but cannot get it to focus AT ALL now. I am a professional photographer so tried other troubleshooting routes that I thought might cause focus problems (i.e. not enough light; played around with the shutter speed, f stops. etc.). I also took battery out, and put back. I took lens off and put back on. Any other ideas that you can suggest that would be causing this problem? Thank you for yo

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

Nothing works!!!!!!! I have been having problems with my 5D for some time now. The problems started with a piece of black felt on the sensor, which I noticed when reviewing my pics on the PC. I opend up the camera to check the sensor only to find that there was a piece of felt loose on the shutter. I sent the camera off to Camera Tech in South Africa for repairs.

I have a new (3 weeks) D700 and while taking photos yesterday with camera and a 16-35mm lens, the exposure meter went ape. Pictures taken ok but ERR started to flash where shutter speed reading should be displayed in viewfinder. Tried everything, including resetting to factory settings, detaching and reattaching lens, checking switches, and then went home in despair. At home I switched to a 50mm lens and the problem disappeared. I put the 16-35mm lens back and problem seemed to have disappeared.
