Having problems with your Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens ?

Partial image suddenly i take photos and only a part of the photo appears. it's not the card - it's the camera. more of half of what is taken is simply not there.


Answers :

Had the same problem few days ago. Seem it is a problem with the mirror mechanism. The problem itself it's not big (just a piece of plastic broke, or a spring, ...) but it could be a tricky job to "open" the camera yourself..
I took mine to service, cost me around 30 Euros. Don't know to say if the price it's ok or not, I'm in India...

Help, I took about 80 pictures on my olympus sp-350 camera, an xd card was in it. Took my camera out the following night and half way through it seemed as if the camera switched to taking pics on the card/ internal memory (not sure which!) because I could only view the last ones taken and not those before. I have been onto photo rescue and that only recovered the ones that were on the card. I pray to God I haven't erased them they were taken on a special holiday in fRANCE! PLEASE help

The screen on my camera says 'Memory Card Locked'. The solution is to take out the memory card and flick the switch on the side. But I can't take the memory card out- it appears to be stuck. At the same time as the screen starting to say 'Memory Card Locked' the memory card only comes out half way so I can't flick the switch. How do I solve this problem??

I haven't used my Olympus FE-20 camera for about half a year, and I just brought it out to take pictures of the snow. Everything was great, but then I had to search for the cord to upload it.

Photos unread I have an Olympus Stylus 720 SW with the same problem. When I upload photos, some are corrupted and are chopped with parts of the photo misplaced. It has nothing to do with computer as it does this on all computers. I'm not using a reader, but simply uploading VIA USB cable. Some photos are so corrupted, I cannot even get a partial view of the choppy remnant of the photo taken. Could this be a memory card problem or a camera problem? I don't know.
