Answers :

Zohail,

I'm sorry but it is not ccd image issue, it calls focus data error and camera requires Flange-Back adjustment by Canon Service Center Tech or Lens Assembly will be replaced.

Yes it is 100% ur CCD going BAD thats what i was trying to ask dont worry if u see noise in final output on pc and see lines and blurred pics after sometime they will be discolored as well

u can call canon for free repairs see the link if u confirm ur problem dont worry it is a known problem in 100's of models from different brands see the links below and just call them tell them abt bad ccd they will understand what it is and they will do it free the best part !

Canon Ixus 75 Auto Focus fails. It appears to be trying to focus and the small box appears on the screen showing where it it trying to focus. I think it's always focussing very close up. Macro is not set. Thanks for any help.


This usually happens when there's not enough contrast between the subject and the background or the subject itself is too 'flat'.Also if there's not enough light in 'flash off'-mode you cannot focus. Try using the focusing assist light. ... Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

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
