Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera ?

I dropped my Canon PowerShot SD750. the lens comes out half way

\015 When i turn it on, the lens comes out half way and if i push it more than once it comes out a little more but then goes back in. The screen is totally off while i do this. But when i push the play button the lens comes all the way out then comes back in and then it shows the pictures on the memory card.\015

Answers :

Sorry, but there is no DIY fix for the lens problem, and any attempts\015\012at homebrew repair will likely worsen the problem. The camera needs\015\012professional repair, so I suggest that you take it to a camera shop (not the camera department at a large store) or contact Canon\015\012customer service via the Canon.com web site. Be sure to get a firm\015\012price before committing to repairs -- the cost to fix it may be close\015\012to the price of a new camera, and repairs typically only carry a 30-day\015\012warranty.

I have a Canon Powershot S3 IS and I was looking at picture I had taken and the lens was retracted. I switched to the camera mode and the lens started to come out and hit my leg and stopped half way.

The lens came all the way out but the screen is still black and I could feel the camera and just barely hear it making the noise it makes when the lens is coming out but it was already all the way out.

Won't Focus I have had my Canon Powershot SD1000 for about 9 months now. I have had problems with the lens error and it getting stuck but have always been able to get it to work eventually. I had another bout with the lens getting stuck, was able to get it unstuck but now it won't focus at all. Normally I press the shutter down half way to get it to focus on my subject, but now it simply won't focus. I'm wondering if maybe my settings are off, or if it's an internal problem. Any suggestions

I dropped my Canon Powershot SD750 digital camera and the extended lens was stuck open. I had no other options so I opened the camera up to fix it. I corrected it, but after I put the camera back together it takes poor pics. In normal light conditions it over exposes and pic looks really bright and also has many lines going through the picture? I love the camera and don't want to buy another one. I tried a different memory card and reset function under the menu.

Hi there, I dropped my Casio Exilim (EX - Z80) a while ago and the lens got stuck half out. However after a while it fixed itself and I can record videos on it perfectly but when I take photos they come out too bright, as if I'm taking photos in the sun with the flash on. Is there an easy way to fix this or am I going to have to spend a fortune? Thanks, Hollee

My Camera will not turn on I have a Canon PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph. About 2 weeks ago, it stopped working and just randomly would not turn on. The strange part is, I had just used it about an hour before it stopped working and it seemed to be just fine. I didn't drop it or damage it in any way, so I don't understand why it just stopped turning on just out of the blue.
