Hand Icon I just bought the Canon SD850 IS & am familiarizing myself with it. (or trying to) As soon as I inserted the memory card an icon showed up at the bottom of the LCD. It looks like a hand in the "stop" or "halt" postion. It stays there even when all of the other data on the screen is turned off. I cannot find an explanation for it in either owner's manual. Can you plese tell me what it means?
HiIt means there it not enough light to take a picture without it being blurry and you should switch the flash on. Try setting the flash to Auto and you should be fine.Happy shooting from Darntoothysam com (an affordable digit ... Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera
Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.
These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras

My Camera will not turn on I have a Canon PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph. About 2 weeks ago, it stopped working and just randomly would not turn on. The strange part is, I had just used it about an hour before it stopped working and it seemed to be just fine. I didn't drop it or damage it in any way, so I don't understand why it just stopped turning on just out of the blue.

Hi, the flash card card-eject lever spring is broken and wont eject the card. u have to manually push the card in place and pull the card out. the lever stays up until u shut the card slot door.once the card is in place the camera can read the card if images already exist. but...it will not record an image and shows up as blank on the screen after the shutter takes the image? is this the cause of the broken eject lever. thanks.
I have the same problemI think that the reason that the not record the image is that the card slot door is pushing down on the card eject lever and ejecting the card when the door is closedThe only answer I can think of is to shorten the leverdavidh ...

I have a Canon PowerShot A2000IS. The zoom lever is no longer function to the right. As in, the zoom lens still works but the zoom lever will not control it, I have confirmed this by attempting to use the zoom lever in the playback mode. Is this repairable, or an extremely technical mechanical error?

My Flash stop working, do i need to replace it? The built-in flash does not stay up. I can hear the clicking sound when it wants to pop up, but it stays in place. At this point it's pretty easy to open it manually, so I noticed what it seems to be a small spring on the right hand side. I guess it is there to hold the flash and it looks like it is off it's place. Is there a picture somewhere of how it is supposed to assembled? Thanks in advance, Gene

I have a Sigma 18-200 3.5-6.3 lense and use it on a Canon xTi Rebel. The lense is a year old and have recently noticed that at the 18mm focal length that the f stop no longer opens up to 3.5 but only to f4. I have not dropped or jarred the lense. Also I have noticed that at the 200mm focal length the f stop opens up to 5.6 not the 6.3. Any advise would be appreciated. Jim Caldwell

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops. If I use the same functions with my Canon 18 -55 kit lens the exposure is correct so I would presume the camera is not causing the problem. The only way I can get a correct exposure with the Sigma lens is to compensate manually for each shot. Please note the exposure p

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

Movie Watermark Just purchased a Canon SD300 and shot a test video. After downloading to the PC using the provided Canon software it now has "PC Video" and "www.jpg.com" stamped on each frame. Why is this occuring? It does not show up on the in-camera preview, so I assume it is being added by the downloading software. Any help on how to stop this from occuring would be much appreciated. Thanks.
