Having problems with your Canon Elph2 APS Point and Shoot Camera ?

Can't get film out


\015 My film cavity is apparently locked. No amount of pressure will open it. I replaced the film yesterday and it worked fine then--there's been no damage to the camera since theat time.\015

Answers :

This same thing happened to my Elph-2 years ago on boat trip in France. The ship's captain offered to work on it and it came back with a lot of little dents in the lid but was open and didn't lock up again until last week. After tapping on it a bunch with a kitchen knife, I decided to pry it open. DO NOT PRY!! Theres a hook-shaped plastic catch in there that is just waiting to break when you pry. Now I'm looking to replace the lid to the film cavity or the entire camera. It will not stay closed. Due to his circumspection and the language barrier, I never got clear exactly what the ship's captain did that time to get it open, but he sure did tap heavily on that lid from all the little dents in it. Good luck!

Hi I am soooo annoyed with my camera, I want to download images from my Olympus FE-120 to my pc, but I cant get my camera to go into 'pc' mode, so I get an error message saying the Olympus software cant find my camera. It did it ok yesterday!!! I know from looking that people seem to say get a card, but I need to do this urgently. Any help very much appreciated.

I cannot get the video footage on my memory card to delete. I finally worked out how to transfer it onto Mac and now i cant clear the card? I am following the manual instructions.

I have a Samsung VP-D353i camcorder and since I used the Nite Shutter to film in darkness the other day, it will no longer allow me to record hardly anything at all. All I can get on the viewfinder is a bright white screen and when I try to play a tape back, I can only get any sound on it with the viewfinder pulled out, but then I get no picture as it's still all white. I read somewhere that the charge coupled device might be damaged? Can anyone help please?

Hi there, i recently purchased a polaroid 600 camera from ebay and some 600 film. However, when I try to shoot, I just get blank pictures coming out (completely brown - alomst negative-type look). I'm not sure if I have loaded the film incorrectly, or if i am pressing the wrong button (there is a large green and smaller black on on the side of the camera - i have been pressing the green one), or if there is something wrong with either the camera or the film. Any advice appreciated


More than likely, the camera is ok. It sounds like the film is either expired, or the previous owner did not store the film properly, therefore it cannot be exposed properly. If you bought it off of ebay, you do not know how the previous owner took c ... Polaroid Digital Cameras
