Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera ?

Camera suddenly stopped working. Tried new battery no help. Camera is approximately 4 years old, has been in case and had excellent care


Answers :

Hi,

\015\012
Check whether your batteries are actually making contact with the battery posts, and that these posts are clean. If not, bend the posts up/down a little, and maybe clean them with a little rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip.
The next thing to try is examine both the battery and flash card door. There's usually a little switch on both doors (note some SD card doors do not have this switch) that activates when the doors are closed. If they don't, the camera won't start to prevent damage to the flash card or camera startup sequence. For most cameras its usually a little piece of plastic on the door that pushes in on a pin switch when the door is closed. Closely examine both doors to try to identify these switches. A lot of times that little plastic nib wears down or breaks off, but can easily be jury rigged with a small glued-on replacement.
If you've tried all of the above and still no luck, the problem is then likely to be internal to the camera. One example would be that if your camera uses Compact Flash, check to make sure all pins are present and aligned in the card slot (if bent, simply unbend/straighten them with a skinny "jewelers" screwdriver, then insert the flash card for final realignment).

We have removed the lense, batteries, and cf card, put them all back and depressed the shutter before turning the camera on.

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem?

I have a Sigma 18-200 3.5-6.3 lense and use it on a Canon xTi Rebel. The lense is a year old and have recently noticed that at the 18mm focal length that the f stop no longer opens up to 3.5 but only to f4. I have not dropped or jarred the lense. Also I have noticed that at the 200mm focal length the f stop opens up to 5.6 not the 6.3. Any advise would be appreciated. Jim Caldwell

Hi..... Years ago I purchased a Vivitar Series 1 70-210 zoom lens with macro to fit my Konica SLRs. I also aquired a similar lense to fit my Minolta 101b. I have recently bought a Sony A100 digital SLR and would like to know if there are any converter rings available to use my old lenses on the new camera. I just love the one-stop zoom and focus operation. Any help appreciated Grayham

I recently picked up a Canon UC-X1 Hi 8 camcorder my father left me when he died. I have been trying to view tapes in it but it has bad distortion... and interference so makes it very difficult to view. Is this dirty heads or something more serious? It has not been used for approximately 8 - 9 years and left in a cupboard secure in a padded case.


Hi bumbleYes, it may be dirty heads, or a loose maladjusted tape guide, but also(more likely) could be failing surface mount capacitors. Canon camcorders of this vintage were plagued with problems from these failing. Best bet is to have ... Digital Cameras

I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.

We have a Kodak 8.2 mega pixel camera that is approximately 1 1/2 years old. I took pictures and then uploaded them onto my computer. Unplugged everything.

We purchased a new battery thinking that was the problem and still nothing. When the charger in plugged in there is nothing - no lights at all.
