Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera ?
Inability to take photos
\015 I recently received a second-hand Canon Powershot A70. I am able to view previously taken photos, however when i try to take a photo a purple-like static image appears on the screen, and when the phot is actually taken, it displays a blank image. \015\012I have read previous posts that have suggested that it is a fault of Canon, and that they can fix it for free, however does this offer still stand, and if so is it available to those in Australia?\015
I think Canon Australia will also support on CCD issue in A70 camera as its world wide canon camera problem.

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo with flash black lines appear all in the photo. I've tried finding a reset button, but nothing has been found. As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS

I was having troubles with my Nikon D2H as in it wouldn't take a picture. I then realized my memory card was full so I deleted a few photos and it worked fine. This afternoon I deleted all the photos from the memory card and now it's having the problem of not taking photos again. I played around a bit with the settings, but it will only take 5 to 10 photos before no it stops taking photos. It used to hold 100+ with the memory card I have. Help?
You and a few million others all delete their pictures from the memory card when you should be formatting. Formatting cleans the memory card surface of all data and makes it ready to accept new image/data. You said that the card used to hold over 100 ... Nikon Digital Cameras

My eos400d is taking photos but the lcd screen is not turning on at all. I cannot preview photos or access the menu. When it first did it the cf card started flashing wen I tried to take a photo. After taking some more photos I got a full cf card message. I deleted photos using my computer as I cant see anything on the screen but the lcd screen still wont come on. I have pressed the disp button also but nothing happens.

Hi, I have a Canon IXUS 95IS camera.. For some reason, when I attempt to take a photo, the LCD screen isn't displaying what is actually in view? In movie mode it comes up on the screen but when i flick it to Auto or camera mode, the screen goes black and only shows the little icons... Weirdly enough, it still takes the picture but the really annoying thing is it doesn't show up on the screen what you're taking a photo of so it makes it really hard for the person taking the actually photo... can

Photos taken now not visible on memory card. I'm currently on vacation and have been taking photos on my DMC-TZ5. Camera has been working fine, until yesterday. I took a number of photos of a particularly memorable day when none of the group had a camera with them. Every time a photo was taken the image was displayed for a second before being able to take another shot. A number of times I went back to check the photos, each time the photo was visible. However, when I returned home and p

I'm prety sure it hasnt always been this slow.. I got a new battery etc.. Thanks!
Most cameras take a little longer to capture the photo in darker conditions, with a moving subject, things like that, though if the photos you're taking now are under the same conditions as the ones you used to that shouldn't be the issue.

Casio exilim ex-z850, won't power up to take photo's, but does play back ok. Occasionally it will power up, take a couple of photo's, then the lens retracts and it will not take photo's again. Have tried removing the battery and resetting, it is when that action is taken that it will sometimes fire up for a couple of shots.

Blank photos Hi I've had a refurbished rebel XT for a little over a year now. It worked great until last september or so when all of the sudden for the first 50ish pictures i take it records completely black photos. If I take enough the complete blackness becomes a few black lines and finally it takes normal photos, but only until I turn it off and then I have to start the whole process over again. I made sure my software was up to date and I tried two different memory cards. Any advice?
