Answers :

The only thing i can suggest is to buy a card reader that connects to pc via a USB. dont know where you are from, but here in uk they vary in price from about £5. if your card is an SD card, make sure the card itself is not locked, there is a little switch on one side, usually white, this switch slides one way is locked, the other unlocked. apart from that i cant think of anything else.

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.

These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras

Hi there, I have a Canon Powershot S3IS and just lately when you try to turn it on it comes up with a message that says E24. I have looked through the manual and cannot find anything resembling this message. It turns on for a few seconds and then the screen goes black and displays the E24 message. I was taking photos during a recent wedding I attended and then it cut out suddenly and displayed the E24 and since then will not turn on. Please help me as my brother and his family are arriving soon

Canon Powershot S410: cannot turn it on

I have a Canon Powershot SD1000 and when I turn it on, the screen to take a picture says it's on auto, but it's black and you can't see anything through it. If I switch to video mode or picture review mode, the screen can be seen through. I think that I accidentally put it on the wrong setting, but I don't know how to fix it.

When I turn on my Canon PowerShot S2 IS camera and set it to shoot mode, the screen is black.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very b ... Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

Our camera when you turn it on has a blank screen and you cannot take pictures. You can review pictures and see the different menu modes, but the screen is otherwise black. We have had it repaired once for almost $200 by a Canon repair centre with the exact same problem about 18 months ago. They said it was a shutter issue?? It sounds like it could be a CCD issue? I have written Canon customer service over 2 months ago, suggesting a defect, to which I have received no reply.

My Canon PowerShot SD850 IS has a lens that is stuck in the extended position. I get a screen that says lens error, restart camera, but when I try to connect to the software, I get a screen on the computer telling me the computer cannot detect the camera. Battery is freshly charged, and I get the little yellow bird picture on the camera when I turn it on. It beeps about 4 times, and then turns off. Is there a safe way to get the lens to retract?

Don't play around with that lens, you can do more damage to the camera and focus with some of the stuff people tell you to try. Your camera just needs to be serviced and you'll be working great again. The shop that specializes in service for the powe ... Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera

Grainy photos I have the Canon Powershot S3 IS. The had it in sports mode taking pictures of a baseball game and they turned out grainy. What do I do?

My Canon PowerShot A85 no longer shows scene on the LCD screen before shoot nor immediately afterward and records a blank on the memory card. Photos taken before this problem started can be viewed on the screen in review mode. Otherwise camera feels normal, i.e. turns on and off, zooms, sounds like it recorded a photo.

I called Canon customer service. Problem is likely due to a defective CCD image sensor. The camera is well beyond warantee, but they will fix it free including shipping both ways. No proof of purchase needed.I can't get the web site pasted i ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
