Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S230 / IXUS 179 Digital Camera ?

My powershot s230 camera does not work together with my windows 7 pc. Where do I find the right driver? Edwin

Answers :

Hello and welcome to Fixya.

I'm afraid canon has no made any software for this camera for windows 7. The camera should show up in my computer or computer which you will find from start menu, most likely as a removeable storage device.
If the camera does not work right away when you plug it to a usb port, then the camera will not work with windows 7. Please buy a card reader, and use the cardreader to transfer your photos to the computer.

A card reader will cost you 5 to 30usd depending on what kind of a card reader you purchase. You can get a card reader from a local store, or from a camera dealer. Take your existing memory card with you to make sure you get the right kind of reader for your computer (USB) Any card reader will work with windows 7.

Let me know if you require anything else or if you have any questions.

When I turn on my camera, all I see on my screen is a blank white screen with two large black blobs running from upper left to lower right. The same screen appears when I try to preview past shots. My menu won't work either. Any clues as to what's wrong? I carried my camera in my right back pocket before this happened and I may have sat on the screen without knowing it. Is there any way to find out if my camera is still workable? Thanks. Bob Jenks [email protected] 561.694.8326

Windows Vista can't find my camera. This is a new problem as it worked fine last winter.My old computer with Windows XP has no problem. Control Panel - Scanners and cameras shows the Canon A80.

HI, I have a Canon Powershot Sd 790 IS and it totally quit working on me so I took it all apart and then put it back together and now it powers on okay, and the lense opens and extends, but the image is blurry. I'm thinking there is a reset somewhere so that the camera knows when it is focused and then stays that way. Am I right or is there another problem? If I'm right, what do I have to do to reset it? Thanks Marty

This is probably a problem with the focusing ring. The focusing ring is inside the lens assembly, and there is a ribbon connector going to the main board. There's a chance that the connector is slightly misaligned, or loose. Another problem co ... Digital Cameras
