Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera ?

Canon PowerShot SD1000 - Camera turns on, shoots fixtures, flash works, screen is on, but...none of the buttons or functions on the back work, nor does the zoom. Any ideas?


Answers :

This sounds like an actual internal electrical connection problem. or a problem with the board itself. If the camera is under a year old I would have it serviced under the manufacturer warranty. If its over a year you can still have it serviced through canon but the repair costs will not be covered.
Thank you,

The button that contros the zoom and shutter snapped off my camera. It appears that the tips of the three tabs sheared off. The small spring that brings the zoom button back to center is still attached to the camera. If you set the button back in place, the zoom and shutter will still work, but the button comes right back off as you take your finger away. Can a new button be ordered and snapped on? If so, where would one order this part?

Zoom Error Okay, I've looked all over this thing on how to fix the zoom error and nothing seems to work. I have a finepix a205 and the zoom is extended and won't retract. No matter what I do I can't get it to go back in. I've tried turning it on and tapping gently and that doesn't help. I've also tried the can of compressed air and that didn't help at all either. Any other ideas? The thing is this isn't my camera and I have no idea how but one day it just wouldn't work and it hadn't been

Canon SD900 selection options not responsive. The selector wheel, Function Set button and menu selector only work from time to time.

Sometime, I can bring all functions back to life by removing and re-inserting the battery and restarting.
