PowerShot SD1100 - camera seems to have frozen

\015 It is our first week with the camera. None of the buttons will work other than the take the picture button. Pulled the battery and put back - does not help. Can not view previosly taken photos. The screen says ISO 200 and there is a small green box outlined. Pressing the ISO button (nor any other helps). Is some lock feature engaged? The manual does not seem to help. Thank you.\015

When i turn my camera (cannon powershot SD1100 IS) on the screen is black like it can not see through the lens. I can still see all of the menu options on the screen. If I try to take a picture it will still take a picture and the picture shows up just like it is supposed to. I can still review the pictures on the camera. Everything else seems to be working fine.


This could be a firmware problem.First, check your screen settings, should be in the setup menu. You may have the screen switched off, often used as a power save option.Secondly, if its still under warranty, go back to the ven ... Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS IXUS 105 Digital Camera

Lens barrel is stuck in the out position on my Canon Powershot SD1100 IS. Error message reads: "Lens error, restart camera". To my knowledge the camera has not been dropped and the barrel seems to be properly aligned. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. O ... Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera

I received a canon powershot as a gift last year and am just now really starting to use it. The pictures seem fine, but the it seems like I am frequently requested to put in the date and time (i.e. about every 2nd or 3rd time I turn the camera on). Is there somethign I can do to get the camera to retain the date and time? It is sort of annoying that I can't turn it on and take a picture quickly since it won't let me take one until I have entered the date and time. Also, I don't think it is stamp


There is a button battery in your camera (CR1220) that remembers the date and other settings when you remove the main batteries. It probably needs to be replaced. It's in a slide-out holder next to the AA batteries (see page 184 in the manual). ... Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera

Brand-new Canon Powershot SX120 IS and have put in the batteries and card included in the pack.

My Canon PowerShot A85 hasn't been used much. Every now and then - when I switch the camera on - I just just get purplish mess on the screen. It's not the screen itself that doesn't seem to function (the review mode with taken pictures does work). The CCD seems to be malfunctioning. But then, after a while and while, the camera just decides to act normally again. Could it be I need new firmware? If so, how and where can I download that? Thank you for your attention. Frank.


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

My Canon powershot SD20 seems to constantly have a drained battery. I have two batteries for it, and each one seems to be good for about five minutes, then the camera says change the battery pack and it shuts off. But when I plug the battery in to charge the green fully charged light comes on within a minute. Are BOTH of the batteries defective, or is this a problem with the camera itself?
