Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A480 Digital Camera ?

It seems like my usb port on the camera was disabled somehow... is there anyway to reset it? What could've caused this to happen?


Answers :

It may be that the driver software is incompatable with your computer. I've found they're incompatable with mine too (a Toshiba), but an SD Card Reader will fix this problem to transfer photos to your PC.

I just got my camera connected to my computer with the usb. Somehow it won't 'read' my photo's while last week there was no problem.

Hi. My Jazz DV179 camcorder won't upload videos to my computer. I used to be able to but I forgot. Is there any type of cord I need? I tried using a USB cord but nothing happened. Please help cause I'd really like to upload some videos. Thanks.

I took several pictures this morning. Then I plugged the camera into the cradle and pressed USB port and connected the line from the cradle to the computer, an operation I have completed numerous times. This time nothing happened. No "import" showed up. I looked at help in iPhoto. It said to turn on the camera. I tried, but it would not turn on. I took it off the cradle and tried many times. No luck. Have I somehow accidentally locked the camera? Does it even have a lock feature?

I was using my M763 model and taking pictures just fine. Then, I went to take a pic and the LCD was dark. I clicked the review button, nothing happened, so I turned it off and it wouldn't turn back on. When I try to turn it on it flashes green for a nano sec, then red a couple of times, then nothing. When I plug the USB cable into the camera and my computer USB port nothing happens, but earlier I was able to upload pics okay. So what's up?

Aperture Error My camera is displaying a code 0x58. I spoke with the Sony representative, and she said it is actually 0x5B, but it really looks like an 8. Anyway she said the error means a problem in the aperture programming. She had no idea what would trigger such a thing to happen or how to prevent it from happening again. We will have to pay $228 to send it in for repair with no reassurance it won't happen again. We take very good care of the camera. Never banging it around, letting dust or r

I have a ultra HD flip--have only used it a handful of times--no warranty. It will not turn on!! the screen lights up when I connect it to a usb port on my computer, reading--"connected" however, when I unplug it from the computer and turn on the power, it doesn't turn on. There is no reset button or small pinhole place anywhere on the flip to manually reset the flip. How do I reset it. It doesn't have any batteries What can I do?! I want videos!!
