Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera ?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, remove the battery and let it sit for a while in that condition. This is to revert settings to factory default. Additionally, determine if your particular model has a coin size Lithium battery for memory back-up. If so, remove this likewise.

Should the above be not corrective, then it could be a number of possibilities. To determine which, the unit has to be opened up for a look & see as well as voltage checks. Fault could be:
  • LCD screen;
  • \015\012
  • mainboard/LCD interface;
  • \015\012
  • worst case scenario, faulty CCD lens (least likely).
Unfortunately, this type of faults could not be corrected with simple button/key pushing and would require electronics works/parts replacement. If you would factor in the cost of repair, the downtime and efforts needed to effect a repair, it may all boil down to no longer economically reasonable. This being the case, you may want to re-evaluate your options and consider replacing the camera.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
Please reset camera and check live view result.
If problem still exist, CCD Imager is suspected.

Memory Card I just got my new Canon Power Shot G9. The user guide pictures a different memory card then what came with the camera. The guide shows a memory card that has ribbing and a write protection tab. The memory card that came with the camera does not. It is smooth all around except for one squared off corner. My problem is I cannot figure out, since the guide diagram and the actual card do not match, how the card is inserted into the camera? Please help! Thanks, Liz

They tricked you. The picture in the guide is of an SD card, but the card that came with the G9 is an MMC card. On both, there is a row of brass-colored contacts along one edge. This is what looks like ribbing in the guide. These contacts should go i ... Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take.
