Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera ?
A550 date/time problem
\015 I have a 3 year old Canon Power Shot A550. It has worked fine until this past month. Every time I turn the camera on I have to set the date and time. It used to hold this information, but no more. The batteries are not being changed - I am just turning the camera off.\015
Open up your battery door, and you'll notice another tiny door labeled "CR1220". Pry open that door with your fingernails, and you'll find a little button watch battery that keeps the time settings for your camera. It's time for a new battery. Take that little battery down to your local drug store (Walgreens or Rite-Aid). Should only cost about $4. Note that Walmart is more expensive for these type of batteries, and drug stores are usually cheaper (I know, it's hard to believe).

I have been using my Canon A550 for a few years and have uploaded many photos. It normally automatically uploads on connecting to my computer. This has now stopped working. The EOS utility "starts to download images" button is greyed out. I have checked preferences and it is set on "starts to download" as the Startup action. Any suggestions on how to resolve the problem and upload photos.

Color problem The same issue as the one who asked about the color problem. We bought this Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera March 2008 i think. It started to have this color problem last month which is April. The problem is whenever I turn on the camera the screen has this red violet color and it doesn't capture good photos. What do you think is the problem? How can I solve this? I already tried removing the battery and the memory card and tried changing the settings but still it never changes. Help

Connection Problem My Olympus D-560 would lock when I tried to connect it to my PC, a Compaq Presario 6000 about a year old. Since the camera was brand new, I suspected the computer and spent many frustrating hours uninstalling this and reinstalling that. Finally, I sent the camera back and Olympus did a firmware upgrade, which fixed the problem. Then I stumbled across a post on another board that said that the Oly has problems with AMD processors.

3 times i've the same problem with my camera, 3 times they've sent it back. The problem still exists. A new battery, properly charged by me, the camera takes between 1 and 5 photos and then the camera goes dead. I was told by Canon that the battery lid on the camera was causing a short, they said 'Problem solved.' Nope, the problem is still there and i've run out of extended warranty. Please, please help.

Hi, I have two Cannon 40D Cameras and am experiencing problems with both at the moment. One Camera is very slow after pushing the button to take a photo. I have checked all of the batteries and this is not the problem. The other camera will take 4/5 shots without a problem then as I am taking the shot I feel like the camera flutters, the lcd screen shows an error symbol and says the contacts between the lens needs cleaning. When I turn the camera on and off it fixes the problem temporarily but i

I have a problem with my sony cyber-shot dsc T-3. Everything is all right except that there is probably a problem with the lense as the image (on the screen when I want to take a photo or film) is not right (it is pink, dark with lines on it). It is not a problem with the screen, because I can look at my photos / videos which were done before this problem happened. I think it is because I tried to use the camera in a hospital (I had a baby last week) when I was in a surgery room. Maybe too magne

The shutter speed priority setting on my Canon 40D keeps jumping to a different speed that I haven't set. E.g - set at 200, jumps to 25 when I go to take a photo. I have spoken to Canon regarding the problem and they have suggested that I clear the user settings. This initially solved the problem for all of an hour, but the problem has now started up again. I'll probably be sending it in, as I think it might be a problem with the hardware, just thought I'd check here first. Any suggestio

Focus There is one problem that I have with this camera - Auto Focus in low lighting and it has really limited manual focus. Outdoors this camera is outstanding, I haven't found any pitfalls outdoors yet. 10x optical zoom plus 2.5" LCD WOW. Although the LCD is littly choppy, but I don't care about that, pictures turn out really gooood. Anyways back to Auto Focus problem. Do any of you have the same problem? Or this is my ability problem? That limited manual focus really bugs me! I'd like to hear

Focus problems Hello, I just got the new A95 after enjoying the A80 for a few months. I'm experiencing two major problems, occurring especially when shooting in low-light conditions: a. The image displayed on the LCD screen is very dark, while in the A80 it would automatically become lighter after pressing half way. b. The auto focus won't work lower indicator blinks yellow).

File error very so often after clicking a few photographs the camera shows FILE ERROR . On the first review the camera displays the photograph there after the photos are lost. the only solution to the problem is to format the memory card after which it clicks a few photographs & then the same problem occurs. is it the problem of memory card or a problem with the camera
It could be either. There is not any way to tell, but if the problem is too bad I would replace the memory card first and then address the issue within the camera if it continues.\015\012\015\012David Millier\015\012Advance Camera Repair ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera
