I have owned a Canon G9 for a couple years. I dropped it back in May. Lens wouldn't retract. Did research - must get it fixed professionally. Instead of sending to CANON - I sent to Teleplan Digital Camera Repair (worthless hucksters) to save some money. STUPID! Horrible experience - just now received my camera back after them having it back and forth since June. After the fixed the initial problem I noticed having some focusing problems. Almost every picture wasn't focusing correctly. Not a
Just to rule out any owner error, put the camera on a tripod or firm surface and take a few test shots to check the focus. If the problem still exists, then you have a decision to make...deal with the same guys or send the camera to Canon and have it ... Digital Cameras
When I turn on my Canon PowerShot A75 digital camera, it has streaky pink lines. When that finally clears up,(which may take several minutes) it usually has a pink tint. If I try to take a picture, the picture is streaky or pink. Is this the problem that Canon will fix free of charge? The problem has been getting progressively worse since last year. What do you suggest?
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

Problem with the Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera Turning on camera in picture taking mode has lens going full zoom. In picture review mode no controls work. Out of a sudden I can't preview anymore, and in camera mode the zoom goes to 16X and I can't take pictures. Just doesn't work. I did not drop it or harm it in anyway.....please help.
This is going to be an internal problem. It sounds like you might have two problems going on. The zoom switch might be broken, and jammed in the on position. As for previewing your pictures, this could be a slightly loose ribbon connector from ... Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera
I am having problems with my Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS IXUS 105 Digital Camera. when i am in the playback mode, looking through pictures, the screen will cut off at the last picture (when instead, it should just go straight to the first picture). the lens does not retract and if i press the on/off button, the camera turns back on, but then cuts off again whenever i'm trying to look through pics. I can't figure out if I need to send it back and exchange it or what. Please help me, thank you!

I have Canon EOS 300D digital Rebel. I have had intermittent problem with the camera display screen going blank even though I put a freshly charged battery in. Usually I can take a couple pictures then the camera becomes non-responsive with a blank display screen; if I pull the battery out and re-insert it, the camera will take a few more pictures before the same things happens. Any suggestions?
Strange, intermittent problems with the EOS Digital Rebels can be caused by a defective shutter release switch. We charge about $85 to replace it. ... Canon Digital Cameras
Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....
Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera
My canon EOS 100D digital SLR is saying 'card write protected' when ever I turn it on. It just started to appear on my screen for no apparent reason one day and it won't let me take pictures anymore. It's not the card it's the camera, I have tried sliding the switch on the side of the memory card and even tried new cards in my camera but it happens with every card I insert. I have googled the problem and can't find any solution to fix the problem. Would be very grateful if you could help at all

I was able to retrieve the pictures off the memory card but can't delete them. I tried putting the SD card in my Canon Digital Elph, same deal. I thought a reformat of the card in the camera would solve the problem but nope. It spits back at me "Memory Card Locked". The format option isn't even available on the Canon. Grrr, I TOLD my mom to get a Canon but she had to have this one because it's pink. Haha!
There's a tab on the side of the SD-card which sometimes slides to lock(=write protect) position when you enter the card in the reader/camera. Can you take photo's? Are you sure the tab is on 'write enable'? ... Digital Cameras

Take a picture with the camera and download it. If the pictures also shows up white then this probably is a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's w ... Canon PowerShot S60 Digital Camera
