Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I have a Canon MV600. when switched on to 'camera', all I get is a blank screen. Occasionally it will work normally. I suspect the iris is not opening and the iris motor sounds a bit rough. do you have any idea what the problem is likely to be and how much this repair is likely to cost. Incidentally, I also had this same problem with an older analogue Canon model so it would seem to be a common failing.


Answers :

The US version of the MV600 is the ZR60. Canon has issued a service notice for this model world wide that seems to address your issue. The US version can be found at this link. Canon will repair any unit regardless of warranty status if this is found to be the problem. Contact your regional Canon service agency for details on getting your unit evaluated/repaired.

Hi, I have a Canon 20D and a Sppedlite 550EX (I use for almost every shot). My problem is that 80-90% of my photos always return back from the printers too dark. I know this sounds like a printing issue, however I have tried 4 different printers and still have the same problem. I have tried up'ing my exposure both on my camera and flash, but this just overexposes parts of the photo too much. My histogram also looks relatively correct on these shots. I appreciate that photos will be taken too dar


Your exposure maybe off. Unless you are trying to suggest that the LCD displays pictures taken with a flash differently than those taken without one!On an LCD, underexposed picture will still look "ok" but, the Histogram tells the tale. I ... Digital Cameras

I have a canon EF 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM lens that has a zoom lock switch. When in the unlocked position and I try to zoom the lens it sticks at around the 200mm mark and cannot seem to move it below that positon, I need to wiggle the barrel before the zoom seems to "let go" and the lens goes to other positions. This is quite a problem as the lens cannot be operated in all its positions. Also when trying to get it unstuck, it feels like I am applying too much force and could further damage

Hi, my canon g9 powershot, suddenly stopped working, the screen is black, takes pix but they're all black, do you know what i can do, they told me at a camera shop it would cost £150 to repair as it looks like a CCD problem and i'm out or warranty but i can't afford this. Are there known problems like this with this model? Help!!

Our camera when you turn it on has a blank screen and you cannot take pictures. You can review pictures and see the different menu modes, but the screen is otherwise black. We have had it repaired once for almost $200 by a Canon repair centre with the exact same problem about 18 months ago. They said it was a shutter issue?? It sounds like it could be a CCD issue? I have written Canon customer service over 2 months ago, suggesting a defect, to which I have received no reply.

I have a Canon Powershot S30 with a bad LCD. Otherwise working. I also have one with a working LCD, but the lens will not extend. I'd like to make one out of two. Is there a manual with exploded views available so I can do it myself or is that unrealistic. I have several cameras, so I suspect that a professional repair would cost more than the camera is worth. Like most electronic relics, it seems to be cheaper to replace than repair.

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

Fokusing .. I have repaired my stucked lenses but along the way, made another problem. I've broken a little flat 6-wire cable that goes into the lenses. Managed to repaire that also, but now I haven't managed to have a bright focused picture in zero fokus position. Is it called bad back fokus? So , i have been told. If a fokus picture just a little bit, everything is fine. Now I am looking for service manual with zoom/lenses assembly instructions. I have an idea, what should I do, but I would ra

Hi, my camera may have been knocked as I have a black splurge like a spider with a black strands on the bottom left of the monitor. There are no cracks on the screen. I am wondering if this will spread. If it doesn't and I'm careful I shall leave it, but if it should become a problem, I am considering getting it repaired so long as it doesn't cost too much. Are you able to tell me what the problem is and how it may have been caused? Plus, whether it is easy to fix? Many thanks

I have a Canon 20D camera that I use with two lenses. The lens that I have most of my problems with is the 28-70 f2.8 red ring lens. When focusing It always seems to focus on what is behind the subject. No matter how much I concentrate on the focusing sensor to focus on the subject -AND it looks like it focuses on the subject-UNITL I load my photos and look at them in disgust that it focused behind it!! What is going on?? I use the same lens on my friend's cannon 5D and NEVER have this problem.

I have a Canon Ixus. Recently the pictures have become very foggy. Is it cost effective to get it repaired and can you give me some idea of the likely cost please?


The average repair cost is around 30-60 dollars. Price depends on if you need parts or not. It sounds optical related and not digital. Could be moisture in the lens or on the CCD imager glass. Could be a jammed focus motor. ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have an olympus camera. It's a stylus 850SW. Apparently its supposed to be drop proof but it took a bad fall I guess and the side part that plugs into the computer is now having problems opening. Also, this is going to make it seem like I'm always dropping my camera but a piece of the bottom broke off and I'm unsure how. I got it a little over a year ago. Is there anyway I have a warranty on this camera. I paid so much for it and I really don't want to buy another one. What do I do?!


A "little over a year ago" means no warranty. Besides, the warranty wouldn't cover damage due to dropping the camera. If the camera still works, you can use a card reader to download your pictures and eliminate the need for "the side part that plugs ... Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera

When I turn the camera on, the canon logo appears on the display and the red light in back above the menu button keeps blinking, but nothing happens. When I turn it on in the "taking pictures" mode or "view pictures" mode, it just hangs and acts like it has trouble reading the CF card. I've tried multiple cards and had the same problem, so I think it's the camera and not the cards. Any ideas?
