Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera ?

Mode Selection Fault

\015 For some reason, my SD300 keeps going into movie mode, even when the switch is in the photo taking mode. I can turn the camera on, with the switch in the\302\240camera\302\240position, and it will start up in camera mode, but after a few seconds switch to movie mode (usually just as I am about to get a good picture!) Not sure what to do with it. Whether to give up and buy a new one, or try to get it fixed.\015

Hi

Your mode position switch could just be damaged or the switch on the outside of the camera might not be properly lined up with the switch on the inside. You have to open up the camera body to see what I mean, its not hard, just make sure you take out the battery first.

If you need the mode switch, its pretty easy to take off, I just pulled one off an SD300 to see whats involved and its pretty simple.

As for international shipping... Im starting to do it more, but only via US Priority Mail International which is $12 for a flat rate envelope. I just don't like stuff disappearing during transport and that's why I don't like shipping to the other side of the globe.

If you need the parts please let me know, we will get the shipping figured out.

Good luck from: Darntoothysam com

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.

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?

When I turn on my camera in camera mode, it says memory full. I go to the middle selection to delete some photos and the camera freezes.
