Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera ?

I have verified my Canon A95 drains batteries by doing an amperage test. Starting with new batteries I install them in the camera and then layer a thin copper wire then piece of paper then copper wire and close the battery door. Touching the wires together closes the circuit and the camera functions. With the wires appart I measure the camera amps. The camera measures 0.6 amps when on and 0.14 amps when off. Doing the same test with my A80 Canon yeilds 0.45 amos when on and zero amps when off. T


Answers :

I assume you're using a CF type 1 card. Some CF cards have been known to drain batteries. As an experiment, remove the card and see if the batteries drain at the same rate.

We just received our brand new canon t3i in the mail. We formatted the card (a 2GB 700X Professional High Speed Error Free (SD) Memory Card Class 10) and immediately started shooting to test out the camera. Everything seemed to work fine until we tried to apply a filter to one of the photos. The entire camera froze. We even tried turning the camera off and it would not shut off. We ended up having to take the battery out and put it back in. When we did and turned the camera back on we received a

Recnetly while doing a photo shoot, the camera which is a Canon Rebel XP suddenly began to take shots that showed only the very top of the shot with the remaining showing all black. Initially, I thought perhaps it was the battery but have tested that and it's not the problem. This particular camera has had approximately 10,000 photos shot from it. Any ideas?

Movie Watermark Just purchased a Canon SD300 and shot a test video. After downloading to the PC using the provided Canon software it now has "PC Video" and "www.jpg.com" stamped on each frame.

I want a list of the likely different faults which can cause an Olympus C-5060Z not to power on. I'll do the rest. A wiring schematic would help too. I am aware of possible cause being the On/off switch under mode dial and how to replace that, and have a new mode-dial/power switch part, but while the camera is open where the switch can be function tested at ribbon cable connection, I need a check-list of the other most likely causes in the order of most likely to least likely.
