Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera ?

Camera will not take clear photos

\015 The lens makes a noise when in comes out or goes back in. The camera will not take a clear picture. the camera will not focus and takes very blurry pictures.\015

Answers :

As you have noted the lens is the root cause of this noise problem. I really believe there is grit in the lens gear thats preventing it from zooming or re-tracing. As for the blurring this can happen due to shutter lag.. a notorious problem in some of the powershot models. Either ways your camera needs service by an authorized professional. I would not advise you to try and clean the lens gear yourself as it can very easily get messed up and it would significantly rise the cost of the repair.

Good luck

Clearing Memory Hello, I have a DSC-T10 with a 1GB card in it.  I have deleted all photos from this camera but the amount of photos I can now take is not the amount it should be.  It's almost as if the photos are still on the camera.  This is called 'ghosting' I think??  How do I clear the camera and card memory properly??

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image

Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or s ... Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

My Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7has bought up an issue where it brings up an 'usb connecting' screen for one or two seconds occasionally when using the camera. This does not effect the photo taking quality at all, it just means I have to wait for the screen to clear. Do I have to get a tech. to fix it, or can it be done in camera. 2 years old and out of warranty. Very annoying. Any thoughts. Thanks, Ian.

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. The view finder, the LCD image and the lens were all fogged. The camera worked but took foggy images. Eventually the fog cleared and my photos were fine but most of the controls no longer work.

I have a Olympus C-750 UltraZoom. I was taking pictures and everything was normal, but then I noticed the viewfinder was blurry.

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work.

As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS
