Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS / Digital IXUS 95 IS Digital Camera ?

I will be using my PowerShot SC1200IS in below zero weather and taking many shots in very low light conditions. Any advice or suggestions would be of great help. Thank you.


Answers :

First of all, good luck. I hope your camera functions at that temperature...most won't. If it does, after your shooting session, I would place the camera in a cooler like the type you put cans of pop into. This will prevent condensation on the lens and internal parts when you come indoors. Don't open the lid for a long time to allow the camera to come up to temperature slowly.

My Canon PowerShot SD780 IS will not turn on. I purchased another battery to make sure that wasn't the problem and it isn't. I have tried pressing the power button and OK button simultaneously for a few seconds and that hasn't helped. The power light doesn't turn on, the lens doesn't open, it doesn't even beep. I desperately need help and would really appreciate any advice. Thanks, Vanessa A.

My Olympus FE-230 will turn on & the monitor will light up but will not display images or focus in on anything. I shot some pictures with flash (which still works), and all & then I plugged the camera up to my computer through the USB and I was able to view those pictures but yet the monitor remains lit up but blank.

I received a Canon PowerShot A1100 IS as a Christmas present in 2009/10. Right from the start, it seemed to use batteries like they were going out of style. So, I bought good quality batteries and removed them between photo-taking sessions. Recently, while on a 2-week vacation, I went through 20 AA batteries (Energizer and Duracel)! Any advice or suggestions to rectify this inconvenient and highly wasteful problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Leta


In my experience you'd better choose high capacity Li-ion AA batteries, and high capacity rechargeable batteries will be much better. ... Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera

When I turn my Nikon Coolpix S70 camera on it says battery exhausted. I thought that meant the battery was dead. I just charged it overnight & it now still says the same thing. I took the battery out & put it back in & now it doesn't say anything the yellow light just flashes. Any assistance would be great. Never been mishandled, dropped, etc. It's in great condition & stays in the case unless used.

My Panasonic PV-DV1000 has old batteries I admit but it will not power-up in AC or DC.
