My camera and computer won't link up. What did I do wrong? I installed the Canon Digital Camera Solution disk. I restarted my computer. I attached the camera to the laptop via supplied cable. I clicked on program, Canon Utilities and clicked on each of the three camera windows. I get the response camera not found each time. I unloaded and reloaded the software, rebooted the system and got the same thing. Any idea what I could be doing incorrectly? Thanks. I have the Canon SD890 IS Power Shot.

Zoom Error Okay, I've looked all over this thing on how to fix the zoom error and nothing seems to work. I have a finepix a205 and the zoom is extended and won't retract. No matter what I do I can't get it to go back in. I've tried turning it on and tapping gently and that doesn't help. I've also tried the can of compressed air and that didn't help at all either. Any other ideas? The thing is this isn't my camera and I have no idea how but one day it just wouldn't work and it hadn't been

Every time I turn on my Canon A540 Powershot I get the black date/time screen. The date/time is all zero (the photo properties default to 1 Jan 1980) and I have to either enter the date/time or press Func/Set to clear the screen. Whichever option I take.. the same thing happens every time. Is there a way to make the date/time "stick"? I first noticed the problem when one set of batteries was low.. but new batteries didn't solve it. Any ideas? Camera doesn't have a lot of miles..

Lost pictures I had pictures in my camera that were very special to me. I believe when deleting some photos from my camera, I accidentally deleted them all. I have no idea whatsoever how to recover them either. I had taken some other pictures and kept them on my camera so far, but really would love to be able to get the lost ones back. This occured on January 1st. Is there anyway to get them back? Please help!!!

I get a Camera Error message for no apparent reason. It appears on either lens at random times. I bought the camera new in September, and it worked fine until about a month ago.

There are numerous things that can cause a lens error, and none of them good. The camera is almost new and shouldn't be experiencing any of these messages. You should contact Sony support and see what can be done. Here is their support site: ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A230 Digital Camera
