My canon EOS 100D digital SLR is saying 'card write protected' when ever I turn it on. It just started to appear on my screen for no apparent reason one day and it won't let me take pictures anymore. It's not the card it's the camera, I have tried sliding the switch on the side of the memory card and even tried new cards in my camera but it happens with every card I insert. I have googled the problem and can't find any solution to fix the problem. Would be very grateful if you could help at all

Review switch Having had no problems since new 18 months ago, my A85 is stuck in review mode leaving me unable to take any pictures. The switch now has no effect. The unit has been very well looked after and not subjected to any shocks or damage. Is this a return to Canon to fix it or would it be economical simply to buy a new one? (not under warranty)
It seems that the switch to toggle between camera mode and playback is broken, as it happens in most of the cases. the replacement of the switch will do the job. ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
I can't seem to get my autofocus to work on my new Canon T1. The mode dial is switched to full auto, the fous mode switch is on AF, and the Image Stabilizer switch is in the "on" position. When I depress the shutter halfway, I get flash indication, some digital numbers, but no change in focus, no beeping, even though it is on and the focus confirmation light does not illuminate. I've searched through the manual to see what I am doing wrong, but can find nothing. Any help you can offer would
Hope I can help with some input to your problem. Let me suggest please that you switch the "mode" dial to "P" for program, check your ISO (I personally shoot ISO 100) and set it for a speed ISO 400 or lower. Most DSLR's use contrast to focus so a mir ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI Digital Camera

I've had my Canon SD880 for awhile and have never had issues uploading pictures to my old PC. However I recently switched to Mac and seem to be having issues now. I downloaded all the camera software and once I tried to upload new pics, I received a "Failed to initialize program" message and can't seem to get any further. Any thoughts on what to do here?

My Canon PowerShot A85 hasn't been used much. Every now and then - when I switch the camera on - I just just get purplish mess on the screen. It's not the screen itself that doesn't seem to function (the review mode with taken pictures does work). The CCD seems to be malfunctioning. But then, after a while and while, the camera just decides to act normally again. Could it be I need new firmware? If so, how and where can I download that? Thank you for your attention. Frank.
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

I have a canon xl2 camera which is presently at an event that my company is supplying equipment for. the camera is experiencing intermittent video output to our video switching system (which is new and we have thoroughly gone through with a factory tech and has been eliminated as being part of the problem).

Hi there We have a Canon Powershot A570IS digital camera, about a month old. Since changing the batteries once, the camera "low battery" warning light blinks every time the camera is switched on, and then it just cuts out with a "change the batteries" message. The new batteries are fine. They have been checked with a voltmeter and are giving spec of 1.5 V each. Any ideas? Thanks for your help Andrew James, Wantage, Oxfordshire, UK

Received a new SD990 IS today. Charged battery, inserted and switched on. Blue Canon screen appears but no request to set date and time, and none of the buttons have any effect. After about 30 seconds it powers down again. Seems to me it must have been damaged in transit. Any advice about things to try would be welcome, but I guess I may just have to send it back. Alistair.

Best bet is to send it back for a new one. ... Canon PowerShot SD990 IS / Digital IXUS 980 IS Digital Camera
My computer doesn't recognize my camera ViviCam 3785 I could not get my new Canon SX110 to be recognized by my pc. I was using a similar cord for another device. After I switched to the white cord that actually came with the camera - voila! No problem, it worked like a charm. I guess all cords are not made alike? This site helped me, I hope this helps someone else who may need a little more description.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter (a.k.a. "faulty optical assembly") are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck clo ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
