Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G3 Digital Camera ?

Camera only takes one picture

\015 With a fully charged battery, the camera will only take one picture and then is unresponsive (but still powers up and shuts down properly). After the camera sets off awhile it will take one photo. Recently I switched batteries with our camcorder because the G3 was not holding a charge. It worked for a few weeks before this problem came up. do you have any ideas . . . ?\015

I have a canon powershot sd1100 IS and bought it on ebay back in the fall. I havent had any problems and it was in great condition. One night I went to erase some pictures before going out- the camera was fine. About an hour later, I took the camera out of my purse and when I turned it on I saw the screen was white whether I went to take a picture or view one. I can still take pictures and load them on my computer but I can't see what I'm taking because of the white. Is there a way to fix this?

I have a Moultrie D-IR55 camera. Sometimes it takes good pictures, but on other times it takes a picture and then makes it look like a jigsaw puzzle with the pieces shuffled around. I have another identical camera and it has no problems. The only difference is that one camera is on single shots every 1 minute and the one that is having problems is on multi-shots every 15 seconds. Please advise.

The mode dial doesn't seem to work. The camera is stuck on the high speed sequential setting. When we select iauto, it takes one picture and then freezes. When we select the camera option on the mode dial, it takes 13-15 pictures in succession and then freezes. The pictures are taken without the button being pressed. We need to power off to change modes. The camera did work for a little while.
