HI, I have a Canon Powershot Sd 790 IS and it totally quit working on me so I took it all apart and then put it back together and now it powers on okay, and the lense opens and extends, but the image is blurry. I'm thinking there is a reset somewhere so that the camera knows when it is focused and then stays that way. Am I right or is there another problem? If I'm right, what do I have to do to reset it? Thanks Marty


This is probably a problem with the focusing ring. The focusing ring is inside the lens assembly, and there is a ribbon connector going to the main board. There's a chance that the connector is slightly misaligned, or loose. Another problem co ... Digital Cameras

My Kodak V1233, isn't working right. If I turn it on, it will only turn on a second and extend the lense and then shuts off (it's fully charged). I can eventually get to take pictures, if I start by hitting the favorite button, and then the camcorder button and then quickly hitting the the camera button. I can take pictures, but can't see them, I only see a black screen. The camera will not power off this way. If I take the battery out, and then put it back in, and hit the favorite button,

Power issues. Just recently I've encountered a problem with my camera. After plugging it into my computer (And not noticing the power surge notification on the desktop while doing so).

I switched batteries and it retracted the lense, but I tried powering it on and the lense only came halfway out and it powered off. I've tried 4 fresh sets of batteries a

Power doesn't work properly. When I turn off camera with power button, lense stays out. When I turn on, the lense goes in then back out again, but after a few seconds, I get the message: "Please turn camera off then on again." If I don't do anything, the camera will turn off by itself, and the lense will go in. Battery is fully charged, and nothing dramatic happened to start this problem...

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt. Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.
