Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera ?

Video I'm suddenly unable to record any video. The little movie camera is visible on the screen when I think I'm recording but there is nothing when I attempt to play it back. Thanks. Liz

Answers :

\015\012This may sound like a dumb question, but are you sure that you had the camera set to the video recording mode? Several of the Canon digital PowerShots will show the movie icon on the LCD screen even when the camera is in image record mode. Why, I don't know. Ensure that you set the camera into movie mode by pressing your Func/Set button to go into the Function Menu and then selecting the movie mode that you want to shoot in. Press the Func/Set button again to get out of the Function Menu and you will not only see a movie camera icon on the LCD screen, but also a set of numbers in the bottom left hand corner representing the recording resolution (e.g. 640 pixels) and the frames per second (e.g. 30).
\015\012And just in case you did have the camera set in movie mode, make sure that you don't do what many people have inadvertantly done and mistake the video clip for a .jpg image in the playback screen. Videos will of course have the movie camera icon in the upper corner of the image and are viewed by pressing the Set button twice to begin the playback.
\015\012If both of these steps were performed properly then your camera may have a hardware issue. As a last resort, try performing a reset from within the menu just to be on the safe side and see if it makes a difference. If not you may need service. Hope this helps.

I can't find my photos. I was taking pictures and all of a sudden all the photo I took looked smaller on the screen and said unidentified image. I started playing with the settings and then I think I may have somehow put some of the photos into catagories. Now only a few of the photos show up when I press play. Also, when I took the chip out and put it in a developing station, the photos that said unidentified object didn't even show a picture on the screen. On the the camera screen some do

Not focusing I'm not sure what happened, nothing seems to be obstructing and to my extent of knowledge nothing has happened to my camera. However when I turn it on the lens comes out once, goes back in, and comes out again.

Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today. Tried to use for the first time but on pressing the record button I get a red 10 second countdown on the screen and then it beeps and the recording stops. Am able to play back the 10 seconds of footage ok but can't get it to record for any longer. Have gone through the instruction booklet with a fine tooth come and probably missing something really simple - but want to use
