Having problems with your Canon Powershot SX110 IS Digital Camera 9.0MP ?

New photo files write over existing files.

\015 I have a continually recurring problem. When I take several pics at different times of the day, or on different days, it seems that, at some random point (after about 40 pics), the camera tries to write the new photo over an earlier photo, causing me to lose one of the earlier photos completely, while corrupting the bottom half of the next one. I thought that the problem only occurred when I tried to take photos on different days (i.e., Image 001 taken on day 2 would erase Image 001 and half of Image 002 taken on the 2nd day). So I tried to eliminate the problem by changing the camera's file numbering setup to "continuous" mode. I also tried creating a separate file folder, but the problem still happens after about 40 photos. And it's always the same - one photo gets totally corrupted, and the 2nd photo loses the bottom half of the photo. It doesn't appear to be a problem with the memory card. The files that get corrupted are totally ok until the problem occurs. Have you encountered this before? And is there a fix? Thanks\015

Answers :

How large is your memory card? If you're shooting at the full 9mp and highest quality, that takes up a lot of room on a small card.

I have a Fuji S 5200 Digital camera and the SD card kept coming up ''write Error'' every time I took a photo. I have replaced the card with a new one which worked for about the first 20 photos, 2 weeks. It now keeps coming up ''Card not initialised'' each time I turn on the camera.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 camera has a blurred display within 25 seconds of being turned on when in any mode other than playback. When the display blurs, it quite quickly becomes unviewable, and if I try to take a photo, an error message saying WRITE ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD shows on the screen. The card seems fine and pictures I took before today all look good, both on the display and in a computer. Is there any fix, or do I need a new camera?


This is a problem with the camera lens and yes this can still be fix but you need to have it check on a service center but that price will not be cheap so if I may suggest it will be better to get a new camera..... ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 Digital Camera
