Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera ?

Unable to read mode. It remains in recording mode whatever mode I select.

\015 My SD 600 powershot is 10 years old and I have used it extensively. Recently it is not functioning well. It has stopped capturing images. It starts recording despite the mode. It records in all three modes whether it is display mode or picture mode or recording mode. When I connect it to laptop then also it does not show display mode hence laptop is not able to read it. Please help.\015

After years of use these wear out just like anything else, if the camera is 10 years old it is going to cost you more to have it repaired than it will cost to replace it. 10 years is a long time, and the price for repairs will be sky high.

I have just purchased a Bushnell Trophy Cam Model 119450. It will take one photo of a moving subject, then only records at the time interval rate ie every 2 minutes or whatever interval is selected. The result is that I end up with hundreds of images taken every 2 minutes (or whatever time interval is selected) but with no images of the animals I am attempting to photograph. I am using the cam in a remote location in India and I am very disappointed with the performance of this camera. Please he

Hi, I've a Panasonic LUMIX FZ38 (fw version 1.0). When I want to clear the SDHC content via pc (camera in Mass Memory Mode), or to transfer the pictures via cut, it says ''Unable to delete...the storage card is write protected''. but my card isn't protected! And it's impossible to set the photo folder out of ''Read Only Mode''. Instead, if I put the same SDHC in a memory card reader, I can do everything I want. Do you think it's normal?


Yes, it's normal. You should never try to delete, format, transfer to camera, or anything else with the computer. It's always from camera to computer...never the other way around. And when you're finished downloading, always use the "safely remove ha ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera

Blank screen My Olympus FE-170 display screen is white, rather than showing whatever the lens is pointed at (regardless what mode the camera is in). Oddly, icons display just fine and stored pictures can be viewed clearly on the display. This problem occurred without warning (it was not dropped or damaged) and the camera is just one year old. Have you ever encountered this? I?ve read the entire manual and can?t find anything on the problem.


This sounds like CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced . Camera works fine in playback mode generally with this problem but not in capture mode ( camera has gone 'blind'). Should be repaired free of charge if the camera is as old as you say. ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
