SOURCE: Internal flash not working because of non compatible flash installed

Solution:
Look at the external flash socket.
With the camera in "normal position", i.e., poiting away from you, you shoul see a very small (I realy mean very small) piece of plastic under the rigth inside of the flash shoe... it is the "external flash sensor". It probably is stuck. Work with the point of a knife to try and release it.
In more detail, if you look carefully at the external flash shoe, the are two metal pieces that will help create some pressure. So the flash holder (shoe) is made of two parts: a very rigid one and the metal blades that create the pressure. Look under the blade located nearest to the shuter button.
If you can locate the plastic piece (black in my camera, but can be white) try to have unstuck.
Worked with my camera.
regards
Mig

Your camera uses a Compact Flash card so it's asking you to format the card.
Here is a diagram to show you were to go and the process for formatting the memory card

SOURCE: All the buttons are non responsive and the copier flashes 40 U 2. I can't get it to clear or do anything.

U2 error code reset.

Go to simulation mode by pressing # * C * (press these four buttons as soon as possible) the display will go off, then enter 1 6 and press start key. The machine will restart automatically. However if the toner chip is defective, the error will not reset. Replace the toner chip if required.

My images won't download onto any of my computers. When I plug the USB cord in, the indicator light flashes a few times then stops.


Having gone over a month without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem.

My Canon Powershot Pro1 will not accept the memory card. The screen flashes "Memory Card Error" every time I turn it on.

The built-in flash on my Canon Powershot pro1 is not firing. The settings are correct and I can hear it cycle, it just won't flash. The pin on the hot shoe is functioning properly.


In that case, either the trigger circuit has partially failed or (far more likely) the xenon flash tube has blown.

Either way the camera needs to go to an authorised Canon service outlet for diagnosis and repair. Or you could just put the repair costs towards a far more useful external flash unit.

I hope that this has helped and that you kindly remember to rate my answer.

Powershot pro1 viewfinder show blank white


Hi
When the LCD screen is open the viewfinder will switch of and when it is closed the viewfinder will switch on. You can switch between the two by pressing Monitor select button to the left of the Eyepiece (Viewfinder). as you look at the back of the camera.

Hope this helps.

Hi whenever I take photoes on cannon powershot sd 500, 5.1mp the image is getting blurred and horizontal stripes appear


This looks like a processor fault, or an internal RAM fault. You should send the camera back to Canon for service.
