Canon G2 'dead' after not using for over a year
\015 My friend has a G2 that has not been used for over a year, and now found that the battery would not charge. He took it to the camera shop to see whether it is the battery. It is not. Taken to Canon service, they say it is the 'circuit board' and will cost US$200 to repair it.\015\012\015\012I also have a G2 that has not been used for over more than a year. So I tried to see how mine is -- lo and behold, the same problem. The camera is 'dead'. Checked out that it is not the battery problem.\015\012\015\012Anybody has encounted this problem? No sense of fixing it at $200.\015\012\015\012We live in Hong Kong.\015
If the battery hasn't been used for awhile, it may have lost it's ability to recharge. Go to bargaincell.com and buy a replacement for $8 + shipping. It will be delivered for <$15. Replace the battery and recharge. It should be fine. It fixed my problem. Unless you are leaving the camera in a hot window or a humid shower room, the electronics should last a long time. I've had my G2 for 8 years without electronic malfunction.

No pictures Suddenly my Canon S230 does not write to the compact flash card. I've swapped out cards to no avail. Flash, display are normal. I've used the camera for 4 years and am completely familiar with its operation. I'd hate to think it is dead. EllenB

My Sony H1 can no longer work with recargeable batteries so I had to use AA alkaline last year. Now this year it will only take 4 or 5 pics with new alkaline. So am using Lithium, it takes about40 pics then shows batteries dead. What is the problem with it needing stronger batteries as it gets older? Can that be fixed so I can again use rechargeable batteries?

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops. If I use the same functions with my Canon 18 -55 kit lens the exposure is correct so I would presume the camera is not causing the problem. The only way I can get a correct exposure with the Sigma lens is to compensate manually for each shot. Please note the exposure p
Try your EOS in AV (aprature value) mode. You should be able to adjust your aperature value in 1/3 or 1/2 steps dependind how you have your Custom Functions set in your camera's menu. Possibly the lens you purchased is for an EOS 35mm. If you use a 3 ... Sigma Digital Cameras

So I took the family to Luray Caverns in Virginia last week, and took lots of pictures of my wife and kids in the caverns. As my six year old leaned over the "fried eggs" formation, my Canon A570is beeped. The screen showed the battery was running low, and then the dreaded "memory card error" came up. Are all my pics lost, or is there a way to recover them. I'm using rechargeable batteries, and have not checked the CR1220 internal battery. I'm also using a 4 year old class 2 - 2Gb SD card.
Don't worry, your lost photos that are very precious can be recovered with ease. I would like to introduce you a very good data Recovery software, called tenorshare data recovery which can be used to recover images from SD card and from other storage ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

Just started using Canon Rebel EOS XSI that we got last year. Landscape picures are not crisp and clear even using landscape mode. What are we doing wrong?

Your battery will no longer take a charge. Replace the battery with a new one. Your computer probably does not supply the power to the camera. You need a fully charged battery in the camera to view or transfer photos onto your computer. ... Casio Digital Cameras
