I have a canon power shot SD600 (around 3 years old now). When I go to download my photos on the computer it tells me (the computer) that it 'can not detect a camera connection' and to check the connection. The connection is definitely in properly but the connection button on the camera does not light up in blue (as it usually does). The battery is fully charged and can not find anything in the manuals provided regarding this failure. cheers, Maura

The battery is fully charged, the camera flashes saying it is 'busy' but there is no flashing red light to signify the photos are downloading. After a few minutes the camera goes dead (the

BATTERY DOES NOT CHARGE Received a "Vivitar T328" camera yesterday. Inserted the supplied battery and a new memory card into the camera and connected the camera via "USB" cable to the supplied charger. Left the unit plugged in over night. The battery did not charge. This morning plugged the camera into a lap top computer using the supplied "USB" cable. Checked after 5 hours and found that the battery still does not seem to accept the charge.

I have a Nikon Coolpix 3.6x. When I plug the cord in the camera to load the pictures into my computer, I then turn on the camera, the camera goes *beep*, the monitor flashes on a second. then goes back off. I've checked the cord connection into my computer and put new batteries in my camera. It has done this before, when I deleted the pictures from my camera. It was something between the scene and playback buttons I think, but I can't seem to straighten it out. Can you help?

Today when i connected my camera to my computer i thought of copying pictures from my pc to my camera. I opened 'My Computer' and opened the folder of my camera. There I pasted one of my photos. While copying they said that it might not open or not be copied, but still i continued. When I disconnected my camera and opened it, I saw the photo i had copied there(in the camera). After that I thought of copying more pictures into the camera. Again I connected it to my pc. This tie again that message

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
