If your SD memory card contains more than 1,000 images, the camera will display "Communication Error". Use a card reader (if available) to import your images into the computer, or see about having some CD's made at a photofinishing business.

The manual states that the battery door was opened during use. Close the battery door and turn it on and off. You may need to push it closed to make sure the battery connections are made.

communication error when uploading pictures on computer

okay, so when I tried to upload pictures from my camera to the computer it said "communication error" on the screen. Couple of days ago, my sister had used a different USB cordaccidentally(have no clue how she pulled that off!) to upload pictures. And, so when it wasn't working with the canon USB cord tried the one she used, which is a sony USB cord. That didn't work either! Heeeelp please. Is there a way to reset the camera or something?

I had the same problem. My problem was that there were more than 1,000 images stored on the memory card. Once I deleted some of the images from the camera memory card, I was able to download pictures again.

Canon Powershot has black LCD screen

Hi,

When I turned on my Canon Powershot SD750 today, the display screen is black. All of the functions work (I can take a picture - although it comes out black, change the scene, etc), but nothing shows up in the LCD screen. It is almost like there is a lens cap on the lens (which obviously isn't true). The camera has not suffered any trauma, and it worked fine yesterday. Do you know a quick fix to make an image appear? Thanks

These models are notorious for defective mother boards. First check the tiny switch inside the battery compartment for physical damage. If the plastic piece does not pivot freely or is partially broken you can pop this black plastic piece out of the switch with a pin or needle very easily. The camera will power on ok without it. I have quite of number of these models with defective mother boards and Canon service will not give me any help whatsoever. If enough people complained perhaps they would issue a recall notice.

To get the date/time to be on your photos while taking the picture so you don't have to use the software later do this:

When in the mode to take pictures, press the round "Function Set" button and change the recording pixels to "Postcard 1600 X 1200". "Postcard" is the only setting that will allow the time/date stamp to be recorded on the picture.

Then press the "Menu" button and scroll down to "Date Stamp". You can select "Date", "Date & Time" or "Off". You can only do this when your pictures are set to the "Postcard" mode.

Check the switch on the side of your SD memory card. It is a small sliding switch which has a lock position. Sounds like the switch is in the "locked" position. Unlock, reload card, & you should be good to go. If not, the card is probably damaged.

Hi there, my name is Rob and I can help you.

To put the date stamp in a picture do this:
1) Make sure you have the correct date and time set in the camera. To do this:
Push the function/set button. Press the directional button down to select Date and Time.
Push the directional button to the right then down or up to set the date and time. Then press the function/set button to save it.
Then:
2) Push the selector button up to the camera icon, and press function/set. Scroll down to Date Stamp.
Scroll right to turn on the Date and Time Stamp, then up or down to until it says On.
Press function/set when your done.

That is your solution. Remember once the date/time stamp is embedded in a picture, you can't take it out.
