When I attempt to use the camera in Auto Focus mode many times I depress the button and nothing happens. The camera is on and I depress the button half way no beeps to focus and when depressed fully nothing happens. I then turn the camera off and twist the camera mode dial and and turn the camera back on and it works again not always but many times.

The mode dial doesn't seem to work. The camera is stuck on the high speed sequential setting. When we select iauto, it takes one picture and then freezes. When we select the camera option on the mode dial, it takes 13-15 pictures in succession and then freezes. The pictures are taken without the button being pressed. We need to power off to change modes. The camera did work for a little while.

My SD800IS was working fine while in the very hot/humid environment of Yap. I took it out of my air conditioned room and went to take a picture almost immediately.
