Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera ?

I have a Canon SD1100 IS that suddenly shows a small out of focus dot or blur in the viewscreen. It appears just above the upper left intersection thinking of the rule of thirds. Are there any solutions? Thanks Don


Answers :

Hi Don.

The defect is only incidentally located in rule of thirds intersection. The problem is either concerning the lens or the CCD sensor.

If problem is concerning lens you will get a fixed shadow or a proper out-of-focus blur spot.
If problem is CCD the blur will be a deformation of the image in that area rather than a proper optical blur.

In either case the problem may be difficult to fix, as repair involves taking apart and cleaning lens, and eventually replacing the optical sensor if needed.

To get a quote on repair call Canon, or get a quote from a third party service here:Repair.

Focus Problem Dear folks, I just bought a (new) Canon A75, and it doesn't seem to focus. At all. Even on manual focus, not only can I not get it to focus properly, the focus doesn't change at all. When on AF, it doesn't beep like the manual says it should, and the yellow light blinks, as it's supposed to when there's a focus issue. The focus assist light is working. Can anybody think of anything I should try? The manual is of no help. This is my first digital camera, so I'm not ruling out the po
