Powershot SD750, AF-assist beam / Red Eye reduction lamp / Self timer Lamp

Hi,

I was recently given a Canon Powershot SD750 Digital Elph.
I've had it for around two weeks, and the AF-assist beam / Red Eye reduction lamp / Self timer Lamp has just stopped working???

Any ideas why, and what can I do about it?

Thanks!

Ken

Hi

The part is probably defective and needs to be replaced, or its possible if the camera was dropped it needs to be unplugged and then plugged back in... maybe it's just not making full contact.

If you need the camera repaired, thats what we do, we are a digital camera repair business. Just let us know, we can check it out for you. If you want to buy just the part and try it yourself feel free to contact me and I will see if I can buy just that small piece or not.

Good luck from

Have a canon digital elph sd750. Pictures are now blurry.


You could have cracked the lens, damage the focus or a number of other things but the lens and focus are most likely. check your lens for scratches if there is none and no cracks take it to your nearest camera store or buy new good luck!

Turn off focus assist beam on Nikon


Custom Setting Menu A, autofocus, setting A3 "Built-in AF-assist illuminator".

"Choose whether the built-in AF-assist illuminator lights to assist the focus operation when lighting is poor"

Can't turn the flash off


Hi The product you have given has Built-in flash with Auto, Forced on, Red-eye on, and forced off (Red-eye reduction On or Off).
There is a 1 1/8" diameter lens with a built-in lens cover that automatically opens and closes when the on/off button is pressed. Above the lens is the viewfinder window, flash and tiny (almost unnoticeable) microphone. There is also a small circle that has three functions: the autofocus assist beam, red-eye reduction lamp, self-timer lamp. A wrist strap comes with the camera and attaches through a slot on the front of the camera near the side.
To the right of those buttons is the four-way controller, used for menu navigation as well as:
  • Up - Metering (Evaluative, center-weighted, spot)
  • Down - Drive (Single-shot, continuous, self-timer)
  • Left - Focus (Auto, macro, infinity)
  • Right - Flash (Auto w/redeye reduction, auto, flash on w/redeye reduction, flash on, flash off)
