Re: Won't Power Up

Hello Shooter, If the green LED blinks, the camera is either having trouble focusing, or there's a problem with the memory card. Since it turns itself off, I would assume that it is the memory card. (Also assuming that the battery is good) Try another card if you can, or try powering up the camera without the card in to see if it stays powered up. This is a great camera, and would be worth taking it to a camera shop if the battery and the memory card check out OK. Let me know how it goes. Best regards, nightdiver

I have canon sd 750. its lcd gets black. Shows pictures etc but view finder remains dark. display is zz. what to do?

Look for DISP or DISPLAY button in the lower-right corner of the back of your camera. Press this once while the camera is turned on. The DISPLAY button manually turns the screen on and off. This is to save battery power for extended use. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place.

Zoom pictures lower than what see in viewfinder

That's's called parallax error because the view finder is not in the same plane as the lens. Why don't you use the LCD screen to compose your shots?

Couple seconds after i turn my camera on, green

This was also an issue with my own camera and I was getting really really mad that it SHOULD have been working, but wasn't. I fixed the issue by removing the batter and taking a very very very small screwdriver and prying the contacts back just a little bit in order to make contact with the battery. I placed the batter back in and voila! Hope it works with you!

You can reset the camera to factory settings. If after that, you still have the same problem, make valid the Canon warranty since it's 4 months old.

Query Regarding No Display on LCD (view finder) in Canon Digital IXUS 750

With the camera on, have you tried pressing the DISP button once? It's the lower left button on the back of the camera. It manually turns the display on or off as desired to save batteries (you can then aim through the optical viewfinder).
