Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD30 Digital Camera ?

Canon powershot sd30 digital elph

\015 My camera lens did not retract back in when I shut off my camera. So now it won't turn on either. It's just stuck! HELP\015

Answers :

I have same problem. I turn on the camera you hear it trying to come on, shows display pic for like 3 seconds and then shuts down. If I could get the lens to retract I am sure the camera would work.
Most lens errors on the SD30 are caused by the camera being dropped or bumped while the lens is extended. The impact causes the brass pinion gear to shear teeth of on the ring gear that extends and retracts the lens assembly. Even if the teeth are OK the impact may cause the tracking pins on the inner lens housing or front lens carrier to jump their tracking groves.\015\012About the only solution is to disassemble the entire lens assembly; replace the inner housing that contains the ring gear, or realign the tracking pins in their proper groves.\015\012Fortunately I have written an extensive repair manual that covers the step by step procedure of doing just that.\015\012It is available by emailing Jim at [email protected]

What are the optimal settings for my digital camera? I have a brand new Canon PowerShot 12.1-Megapixel Digital ELPH camera, but I've been really disappointed in the quality of pictures it takes. For example, sometimes there are these smallish blurred white circles on the pictures. Can you recommend optimal settings that I should be using? I use my camera indoors and occasionally outdoors, so whatever settings best cover all different conditions would be ideal.


Small white circles usually means dust on the lens.  Remove the dust with a blowerbrush - not a tissue.\012You are asking for a "1 size fits all" solution for your settings, and indoor and outdoor use really means different settings.   ...
