completely erased. Be careful when transferring or disposing of a memory
card. When disposing of a memory card, take precautions such as
physically destroying the card to prevent personal information leaks.
• The total capacity of the memory card displayed in the formatting screen
may be less than indicated on the memory card.

subject, while gray frames appear on other detected faces. The frames will
follow the subjects within a certain range (p. 73).

sounds. To turn the sounds on, press the n button to choose [Mute] from
the 3 tab, then press the qr buttons to choose [Off].

Taking Pictures (Smart Auto)
• What if the image comes out dark even if the flash fired when shooting?
The subject is too far away for the flash to reach. The effective flash range is
approximately 30 cm – 3.0 m (12 in. – 9.8 ft.) at maximum wide angle (j), and
approximately 30 cm – 2.0 m (12 in. – 6.6 ft.) at maximum telephoto (i).
• What if the camera beeps once when the shutter button is pressed
halfway?
Your subject may be too close. When the camera is at maximum wide angle
(j), move about 1 cm (0.4 in.) or more away from your subject and shoot.
Move about 25 cm (9.8 in.) or more away when the camera is at maximum
telephoto (i).
• What if the lamp lights when the shutter button is pressed halfway?
To reduce red-eye and to assist in focusing, the lamp may light when shooting
in dark areas.
• What if the screen turns off when you try to shoot?
When flash recharging begins, the screen turns off. The screen turns on again
when recharging ends.

List of Messages That Appear on the Screen
If error messages appear on the screen, try one of the following solutions.
No memory card
• The memory card is not installed in the correct direction. Install the memory card in the
correct direction (p. 13).
Memory card locked
• The SD memory card, SDHC memory card or SDXC memory card’s write protect tab is
set to “LOCK”. Unlock the write protect tab (pp. 12, 13).
Cannot record!
• You attempted to shoot an image without a memory card. Install the memory card in the
correct direction to shoot (p. 13).
Memory card error (p. 110)
• If the same message appears even when a formatted memory card is installed in the
correct direction, contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk (p. 13).
Y
P
O
C
Insufficient space on card
• There is not enough free space on the memory card to shoot (pp. 20, 25, 47, 65) or edit
images (pp. 95 – 96). Erase the images (pp. 24, 93) to open space for new images, or
insert an empty memory card (p. 12).
Change the batteries (p. 14)
No Image.
• There are no images recorded on the memory card that can be displayed.
Protected! (p. 92)
Unidentified Image/Incompatible JPEG/Image too large./Cannot play back
MOV/RAW
• Unsupported images, or images with corrupted data cannot be displayed.
• Images manipulated on a computer, that have had their file name changed, or have
been taken with a different camera may not display.
Cannot magnify!/Cannot rotate/Cannot modify image/Unselectable
image.
• Incompatible images cannot be magnified (p. 90), rotated (p. 94), edited (pp. 95 – 96),
or added to a print list (p. 105).
• Images manipulated on a computer, that have had their file name changed, or have
been taken with a different camera may not be magnified, rotated, edited, or added to
a print list.
• Movies cannot be magnified (p. 90).
Exceeded selection limit
• You chose more than 998 images in print settings. Choose less than 998 images
(p. 106).
• Print settings could not be saved correctly. Reduce the number of selected images and
try again (p. 106).
124
List of Messages That Appear on the Screen
Communication error
• Images could not be transferred to the computer or printed due to the large amount of
images (approx. 1000) stored on the memory card. Use a commercially available USB
card reader to transfer the images. Insert the memory card into the printer’s card slot to
print.
Naming error!
• The folder or image could not be created because there is an image with the same file
name as the folder or image that the camera is attempting to create, or the highest
possible file number has already been reached. In the 3 menu, change [File
Numbering] to [Auto Reset] (p. 111) or format the memory card (p. 18).
Lens Error
• This error can occur if you hold the lens while it is in motion or when using it in a location
with excessive dust or sand in the air.
• If this error message continues to appear, contact a Canon Customer Support Help
Desk as there may be a problem with the lens.
Y
P
O
C
A camera error was detected (Error number)
• If an error code appears directly after taking a picture, the shot may not have been
recorded. Check the image in Playback mode.
• If this error code reappears, note the Error number (Exx) and contact a Canon
Customer Support Help Desk as there may be a problem with the camera.
File Error
• Photos from other cameras or images that have been altered using computer software
may not be printable.
Print error
• Check the paper size settings. If this message appears when the settings are correct,
turn the printer off and back on, then make the settings again.
Ink absorber full
• Contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk for an ink absorber replacement.

Handling Precautions
• This camera is a high-precision electronic device. Do not drop it or subject
it to strong impacts.
• Never place the camera close to magnets, motors or other devices that
generate strong electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong magnetic fields
may cause malfunctions or corrupt image data.
• If water droplets or dirt become stuck on the camera or screen, wipe with
a dry soft cloth or eyeglass wiper. Do not rub or apply force.
• Never use cleaners containing organic solvents to wipe the camera or
screen.
• Use a commercially available blower brush to remove dust from the lens.
For stubborn dirt contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk as listed
on the customer support leaflet supplied with your camera.
• When you move the camera rapidly from cold to hot temperatures,
condensation may form on the internal or external surfaces of the camera.
To avoid condensation, put the camera in an airtight, resealable plastic bag
and let it adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from the
bag.
• If condensation has formed on the camera, stop using it immediately, as
continued use may damage the camera. Remove the batteries and
memory card, and wait until the moisture has completely evaporated
before resuming use.
