Error code 99 indicates detection of a system malfunction. Try switching on the camera and while it is still switched on remove the battery. Leave it for about 30 secs then re-insert the battery once powered up switch the camera off wait 30 secs then switch it on again. This action sometimes will remedy this problem but failing that it may need a visit to the repair shop.

SOURCE: flashing icon when taking pics

Based on the settings that your camera is in, it is telling you that you are at risk of camera shake. This is just telling you that you can expect to see a blurry picture if you continue to take that picture and that it will slow down the shutter speed to achieve the proper exposure and that is why you are at risk of camera shake. The longer the shutter is open, the more chance that you are going to move so to solve this you have a few options:

  • turn up ISO
  • use tripod
  • use flash
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Canon Powershot A75 Flash Problem

If it is a malfunctioning unit, you may qualify for an upgrade through Canon rather than going out and buying a new one, paying full price, you can get a deep discount through their loyalty program. Give them a call to set your camera up for service and the service technician once they have your camera will let you know if you qualify for the program and which camera you will qualify for and how much it will cost.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Canon S2 IS - LCD screen is white after taking an outside picture

the image is all white or has lines through it.Definitely sounds like a repair issue, and has been a previous problem with the camera in the past. There is a defect in the sensor of the camera, and happens quite frequently in this model. I would try and contact Canon about it, and see if they'll repair it for free. If not, its probably going to cost more than the camera is worth to repair it.

Sorry to say this sounds like a stuck open shutter mechanism. Put the camera in any mode other than auto and make certain that you turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself in the following step). Next look down the center of the lens barrel and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker (wonder where that website got that name?) in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen then it's likely stuck.

Some people have had success in unsticking Canon S2 IS shutters with the following procedures. It may or may not work for you:

Check your ISO...set it to a lower number. You could also go into the menu and find "reset" to set the camera back to factory default settings.

Image is burning with the sun light


sounds like either a stuck aperture or you have the camera in manual mode and you need to adjust the setting of either the shutter speed, aperture, or the iso... try just putting your camera in auto and see if yuo still have the problem... if it is taking good pics at night then it is you aperture if you are in auto.. if it does not take good pics at night then it is a bad ccd

Tip

Get more out of S4000


ISO
Set ISO Setting to FIXED RANGE and set the range to 80-400. The camera produces noise at HIGH ISO setting.
NIGHT SHOTS
Get a small Tripod and you can take wonderful night time shots of city-scapes. Use a tripod and set the camera White Balance to Incandes. Make sure the FLASH is Off Set the Exposure Comp. to -2. Set the self timer and then frame and press the shutter and back away. Some exposures can be 1 second long so a tripod is not optional. Small plastic Joby ones work. If you are holding the camera during the shot it will move with you. A self timer is used to take the photo after you are not touching it.

When you use the flash set the White Balance to Flash (Unless you are outside on a sunny day. then use daylight)

I do NOT recommend using Auto Flash. Set the flash to OFF or turn it to SINGLE BOLT for fill.

When you want to photograph people outside in the sun set the White Balance to Daylight. On sunny days use the Fill Flash (Single Bolt) to fill faces better. Yes good photographers use flash in the direct sun. When cloudy are in shade turn flash off. If the subject has a bright background get close to them and have the flash on.

This camera makes red eye. In most cases when you are taking a photo of people in low light, when the flash supplies most of the light, you will get horrible red eye. You have to edit these later to remove the red eye.

Hi. Turn on the camera and go into the menu and find the reset function. Reset it. That may solve your problem. If it does not, you could go for a repair or a replacement. Some shops will give you a free estimate. Joe

When taking pics of paintings or sculptures,have flashback glare


The glare is from the flash and/or direct source of light behind you or from the reflected angle. The only way to get a super detailed, glare free picture from a 90 degree angle of the surface is with no flash and all sources of light being soft, really bright, and /or indirect. Have you seen the large white inverted umbrella things on movie sets and such? That is what you need. Another option available, which I use on my ebay pics is to take it outside in the sun and take the pic from a slight angle. This gets the big fiery ball off the item and your shadow does not interfere. Cut yourself some slack because the pro quality pics of artwork are done in a professional photography setting like a studio or with lots of on site equipment.

If the pink & white pics are a small percentage of your photos you should probably just live with it. I have 6 cameras in operation for 2 yrs & they have about 10% like this. Great pics otherwise. Probably caused by the angle of the sun or reflection of the flash off a nearby object.
