Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

Somehow when I put the CF card in, I bent one of the pins all the way down. Not sure if it can be straightened or it might need new set of pins.

Answers :


Not sure what model you have, but the answer can change depending on model.

You can definitely try bending the pin back straight by sticking something down there; hopefully it won't snap off and all will be well.

If you need the card reader replaced, some come right off without too much hassle and no soldering... If you have a Canon EOS Digital Rebel for example though, the CF pins are soldered onto the PCB and it must be un-soldered then the new unit soldered back on... not an easy task.

Need to take photos outside but it is overcast. I need to make sure the details of the subject is absolutely clear. What would be the best setting? I have an OptiE10 6MP. It takes great pictures outside in the sun but this is new ground for me.

1 pin bent resulting in "Card Error" message. Attempt to straighten pin broke it off! Camera now appears to work well. What other problems might this missing pin create? Should I keep the camera or replace it?

Some of the CF card pins don't do anything. It could be one of those that broke. If, when it was bent, it shorted one of the other pins, that may have caused the "Card Error". Removing the pin may have no negative effect. ... Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera

Not really sure if this is a problem? I have an Olympus E-500 and E-510. When I changes settings on the E-500 (ISO, White Balance, Auto-Focus Mode etc.) it remembers them when I switch it off. The E-510 doesn't. Is it supposed to work this way or is there an obscure setting I need to change? It remembers the time and date and the quelity settings ok. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

If you are shooting in the Auto mode and make the changes when power the camera off it will reset back to factory defaults. If you change the dial to P mode, make those same adjustments and power the camera off and then on again it should maintain t ... Olympus Digital Cameras

My g9 was playing video clips very fast. i changed the setting back to "standard" and can record/play new videos correctly; however, the video clip that i previously recorded before i changed the setting back to standard still plays back fast and that is the video i need. any suggestions?

I believe the setting you changed set the RECORD method, not playback. The video is recorded that way. There are some Video software out there that can rerecord a video at a slower pace, but do you want to spend the money? Try Ulead.com for a low cos ... Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

My Kodak EasyShare DX4530 is not formatting. I got a new memory card for it and it isnt formatting to it, it trys to but just keeps doing the same thing over and over, "memory card needs formatting." over and over it says it is formatting then goes right back to saying that it needs formatting. is there a way i can set it up to format it?

Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. SD and SDHC cards fi ... Kodak EasyShare DX4530 Digital Camera

I am an artist. I am preparing new works for an upcoming show. I need to send them a file of one paiting which they can use for promotion. They are asking for a 300dpi at 5x7 inches.

Nikkon DS1 I have to go to an event this evening, New Year's Eve, at the Rio. I haven't had my Nikkon very long and I have had nothing but trouble with it.

Continuous shooting I'm new to this so bare with me. I just got my Nikon D60 and I want to shoot pictures in continuous mode. I set it on manual, go into the menu and change it to continuous. I rotate the dial so it changes the shutter speed but when I take pictures it's just a black screen. As a matter of fact any time I try to take a picture in M it's just black. I'm hoping that there is just a setting I need to change and there's not something wrong with my camera. Thanks.

Hey man. Im not sure how new you are but basically i think your problem is you need to decrease the shutter speed to around 1/200-1/250 of a second and increase the apeture to around f10/12 and see if that works. If your operating at a high shutter s ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera with 18-55mm lens
