Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
I have had an A75 for about two months. It's worked generally well until today. It seemed to stop shooting while out on a shoot (I was also using an SLR with tripod as the main camera). The lens won't retract all the way and close. The viewfinder is out of focus in the wide mode. When you zoom in, it's sharper. The zoom lens control - it will zoom in but then it sticks and won't let you return to wide. The shots it take are blurry as well. I was taking photos in cold weather, so that may have been a factor. But hours later it still is having problems. I don't recall dropping the camera. I did have it in a coat pocket next to some keys, but can't see how it may have gotten damaged. The warranty is for one year. I'm considering taking it back to the Office Depot or Office Max and requesting a replacement. Should I call Canon first to see what the problem is? What could be the problem?

1. Stop shooting while out on a shoot: Perhaps the batteries were running low? 2. Lens won't retract all the way and close: Could be same reason as #1.? 3. Viewfinder is out of focus in wide mode: Could it be that camera was left in "Macro Mode" (Flower icon)? Did you set, "Custom Function 1, or 2," and accidentally set the unintended exposure mode? 4. Sticks in telephoto, won't return to wide, blurry shots: Probably cold weather related? Perhaps, "reboot" the camera by removing all batteries for over 10-15 seconds, and replace with a freshly recharged set of NIMH batteries? If all of the above failed, then I'd say take it back to where you purchased it, and get a replacement unit. Good luck. ^_^
