Power issues... I think

When I try to turn on the camera it only shows the words Cannon on the screen then shuts off.Even if its trying to get out the lens camera it will shut off during the middle of it leaving the lens partially out and I can't get it on long enough to take pictures or to get them on my computer or anything.

There is a watch battery in a small slot behind the regular batteries that says c1120.  Has this been replaced?  See if that helps.

I press power and the lens opens and shuts but dows not allow me to take picture. The screen reads ''tune the power off an on again'' but turning powers on/off does resolve anything.


Hi!

You may try removing the Battery from the Camera then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then, reinsert the Battery and turn the Camera ON. Please make sure that the Battery pack is fully charged. Next, check if the Menu options or home screen is accessible. Then try resetting the Camera to the original factory settings.

If the issue persists even after performing all the above steps then service is required.

Cannon SD 750 - when i try to take a picture a black screen appe


Think that you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

I have a Cannon Powershot SD600, just got it recently and it worked great, then all of a sudden I noticed the cover lens's that slide over to protect the lens when you shut it off were messed up. Onle 1...


The Canon series are fine camera's, but they seem to suffer from lens errors (check how many people suffered from this by googling lens error canon). 
The problem seems to come from sand/dust entering the body and jamming the lens gear. A handy person may be able to fix it, but I think Canon should have designed an enclosed lens gear so sand/dust can not enter. 

Camera's are commonly carried in pockets, so it is logical sand and dust can be expected. 

There are some issues with getting perfect focus in some situations.

Cannon SX100 Display is reversed/backwards


think the only way to fix that is service, you have a year warranty provided the camera wasn't dropped any to cause it
