Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera ?

Hi, I just bought Canon PowerShot A1100 IS camera. I am using rechargable battaries of GP 1.2V 2700mhz which only lasts for not more that half an hour. what should I do?


Answers :

Those batteries are Ni-cads or the like, they ONLY have 1.2 Volts, this camera should ONLY be used with "Normal"? batteries, of 1.5 Volts. It is all a function of VA/T Volts x Amps, over Time, and a 1.2 @ 2.7Amps = 3.24VA, now, even at same current 1.5 @ 2.7 Amps = 4.05.VA You see, the other first one does not have enough energy to last. It is that simple.

Last night was taking photos indoors with flash on auto setting. All appeared fine except thre was a vertical line on the viewfinder, not quite half way across. After about 4 flash photos, the flash turned itself off and it wouldn't allow me to adjust the settings back to flash again. I checked the setting and it was still on auto and there was plenty of battery left. Tried a couple of shots and they took, but no flash, so useless. Turned camera off for half an hour then tried again and it was f

Dear Fixya, I use a fixed videocam above a desk area at which I demonstrate watercolour painting. The videocam connects to a digital projector which projects to a large screen. This arrangement means that I may talk to my audience while completing a painting. During the demonstration, which lasts about an hour and a half to 2 hours, the videocam is set to record while projecting the demonstration onto the screen. That way I have a permanent record for later editing. My first videocam was

Freeze Up I just got my first digital camera, chock full of buttons, dials, wheels and screens. ;-) Anyway after a few hours of playing with it - it locked up...no buttons worked.(even the power button) I had to finally remove the battery from the live camera to reset it. Since then it has happened almost half a dozen times in the last few weeks. Has anyone seen this phenomenon ? Is there cure or is it necessary to send it for warranty repair.(return to store)


Sorry this post is probably way too late for fishi, but in case anyone else needs an answer;\015\012\015\012Yes. Return it to store.

I have a Finepix z10 and am having a problem. Last night I was using it to take pictures and it was fine until it said memory full, which was a possibility but I was surprised. When I looked at it this morning all of my photos from before and half the pictures from last night are not there, only 60 photos from last night showed up. I am sure they were not deleted, and the 'memory full' sign still came up. I connected it the the computer and uploaded the remaining photos and it also told me that

When recording two vhs tapes back to back on one disk, it will not finalize. But, will finalize if one tape is recorded. Mind you now each tape only has one half an hour recording on them, and the disk is capable one hour of recording time. I'm using dvd-r disks, and have tried everything I could think of, and have used many disks to try and solve this problem.


The disc requires some space for the finalizing process. Two half-hour tapes take up all the room on the disc and leave nothing for the process. You'll need to record at a lower speed. ... Digital Cameras

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
