Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera ?

Megapixels on camera needs to be reset?

\015 My husband was messing with the settings on my camera and somehow changed the megapixels settings????? I went to develop a normal 4x6 picture and it said the megapixels were too small to develop the picture. I printed it anyway and it came out fuzzy\015

Answers :

Check the sizes and quality pressing the FUNC button while in shooting mode. The left side options on your screen, at the left bottom corner will display the size and compression for the images, and select the desired size. See the manual for the correct size which corresponds to proper printing size. I suggest you to use always the maximum size for the S3: 6MP and compression at superfine, no matter what the size of your prints will be. Always check your SD card. A good practice is to carry a second SD card. 1 MB is OK if you don't use the camera for videos.

Is a good practice also to check always some basic settings prior to use the camera.
You can check the user manual to change again the resolution settings, or just reset the camera to the factory settings through the menu settings (last and bottom setting option).

It seems to have frozen while turning on - the screen is black etc. I took out the battery, and meory card, replaced them both, nothing happeneing. Power button does nothing. Is there a reset button?

This would need to be repaired if the lens is stuck so is the shutter. I would take it in and have it looked at. there is no other resetting then what you already have done ot the unit.\015\012\015\012\015\012thanks for rating. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S650 Digital Camera

When I plug the camera in it says the usb device could not be found. Everything worked great and now it does this on every PC I try it on. I tried to reload the usb drivers for it and it says they are not needed and won't let me go any further.............. this was happening with my iPod, too, but I took some advice and turned if off, plugged it in, and reset it while plugged in and it worked.

I own a Canon EOS Rebel XTi. This camera is unpredictable; i.e., I never know when it will decide not to record an image. I have reset it many times to the manufacturer's default settings, and then it SOMETIMES works, but then for some reason stops recording images. I have started to always carry a second camera (a point & shoot). However I am enrolled in a number of photography classes in the new year where I need an SLR. Is this camera issue serious or something I can fix? Thanks.


Okay at least the memory card isn't locked or it wouldn't be taking any pictures. Couple things one is did your format the memory card before using it? Do you format the memory card after downloading pictures to the computer? Do you just unplug the U ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI Digital Camera
