Canon Powershot A630 video recording issue

\015 I've had this camera for about two years now. It's always worked nicely, with the exception of poor quality when it's dark and no flash. But that's not the problem.Sometime last year, it stopped recording video as well. From recording as long as the memory card had the space for it, to only recording a minute or so. I've even emptied the entire card (4 gigs of space!) and recorded, and it keeps stopping. It doesn't even seem to always have a set stopping time-- it's USUALLY three minutes, but it sometimes stop at just a few seconds, but that seems to happen more often when the card has a lot on it (but still sufficient space for more than three minutes of tape).Anyone know the reason this is happening, or a solution? I really need to be able to record long videos for an event coming up.\015

Answers :

This could be your memory card going bad. Recommend trying a "low level" format of the card to see if that jump starts it. First download all images and videos as the format will erase them from the card. Next press the menu button and select the settings (tools) menu. Go down to the format option, and press the "Func Set" button. Make sure "Low Level" format option is checked before selecting OK. After you format the card, try the video to see if the problem is fixed. If the above didn't help, recommend trying a different card.

My camera (a Canon PowerShot SX10IS, if it matters) has this tendency to move in and out of focus when I'm using the video recording feature. For example, I can start the video by filming a stationary object (let's say, a person speaking at a podium a meter or so away) and the video will be in focus. However, even though the person in the video isn't moving except for subtle hand gestures, the camera seems to start to try to focus on something else deeper in the background or closer in the foreg

Canon SD1000 Two days ago, my son had a gig at his high school. I recorded it with the Canon Powershot and everything was fine after that. The video would play on the camera and everything.

Recently, my Canon Powershot A95 has had an intermittent LCD display problem. While beginning to frame and focus a shot, the image streaks from edge to edge of the screen. If the shutter is snapped, that is the image recorded. The image looks like the subject is rapidly moving, or as though it is a time-lapse photo. Could this be a CCD (chip)issue?

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video earlier because we reviewed the disc yesterday and was able to watch our daughter's recital. We recorded our son's pre-k graduation today but all video has disappeared including our daughter's recital. What is frustrating is that since the disc states that there is only 4 minutes left (60 minute
