Canon A710 left outside in freezing temps


\015 My Canon A710 was left outside overnight in the yard in below freezing temps. When I turn it on it starts to boot up showing the Canon brand on the screen, the lens starts to go out and then it shuts itself off. I have tried new batteries and have let it dry/warm up for about 6 hours. No luck. Any suggestions?\015

My Camera was in its case. the case is burnt on the outside and the camera looked dirty on the outside.

Canon Squeal I recently bought a Canon A1 35mm film camera off eBay. The outside is in amazing condition but the seller did not use the camera for a very long time so it had not been lubricated. I put a new battery in it and pressed the shutter release button and heard a squeal and the shutter was staying open way too long. I'm not experienced enough to trust lubricating it myself and wanted to know if you did this in your store and if you could give me an estimate on how much it would cost. I'm


This is common on the A series Canon cameras. It's a flywheel governor on the side of the mirror box that needs to be lubricated. We do that for $48. Let us know if we can help.\015\012\015\012Crystal Camera Repair\015\012Ashevil ... Digital Cameras

Battery Problems CANON A80 Battery Problems Have had a CANON A80 for nearly three years. The first two years were great. The batteries would last for ages between charges, and with a new baby we took lots of photos. Then the batteries started playing up. Fully charged batteries would only last a few days, or if left would not power up at all. Have replaced the batteries, and the chargers with no improvement.

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

PowerShot SD300 New to this stuff but flash isnt going off at all. Taking pics outside works perfect or if there is enough light.....Just called Canon and they were not that helpful at all. Told me i can send in at my expense but probably would cost about $90 or more to fix and/or I can upgrade my camera (for models that are older than I can get for under $200....they want to offer them at $150). Anybody have an issue with the flash not going off? the only thing the canon buy told me is there mi

E18 is the canon fault number for lens error. Is the lens stuck out? does it click when the camera is switched on? Try lightly tapping the lens on a hard surface. This sometimes resets the lens. If all this fails take it to bits! (but watch the flash ... Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

I recently picked up a Canon UC-X1 Hi 8 camcorder my father left me when he died. I have been trying to view tapes in it but it has bad distortion... and interference so makes it very difficult to view. Is this dirty heads or something more serious? It has not been used for approximately 8 - 9 years and left in a cupboard secure in a padded case.


Hi bumbleYes, it may be dirty heads, or a loose maladjusted tape guide, but also(more likely) could be failing surface mount capacitors. Canon camcorders of this vintage were plagued with problems from these failing. Best bet is to have ... Digital Cameras

Design defect I have been a long time user of Canon Digital Cameras. I began with the Canon Powershot S200, Powershot S330 and graduated to an EOS Rebel XT. Beginning when I first uploaded pictures to my Macintosh Powerbook from my trusty S200, I was literally blown away with the quality of the photos.
