This may sound like a dumb question, but are you sure that you had the camera set to the video recording mode? Several of the Canon digital PowerShots will show the movie icon on the LCD screen even when the camera is in image record mode. Why, I don't know. Ensure that you set the camera into movie mode by pressing your Func/Set button to go into the Function Menu and then selecting the movie mode that you want to shoot in. Press the Func/Set button again to get out of the Function Menu and you will not only see a movie camera icon on the LCD screen, but also a set of numbers in the bottom left hand corner representing the recording resolution (e.g. 640 pixels) and the frames per second (e.g. 30).
And just in case you did have the camera set in movie mode, make sure that you don't do what many people have inadvertantly done and mistake the video clip for a .jpg image in the playback screen. Videos will of course have the movie camera icon in the upper corner of the image and are viewed by pressing the Set button twice to begin the playback.
If both of these steps were performed properly then your camera may have a hardware issue. As a last resort, try performing a reset from within the menu just to be on the safe side and see if it makes a difference. If not you may need service. Hope this helps.
The following three settings are selectable during the movie recording: Continuous AF: The single-shot AF is operated in advance of recording, and AF is always operated during recording. Single AF: The single-shot AF is operated in advance of recording, and the focus position is fixed during recording.*This mode is useful for shooting a low contrast and hard-to-be-focused subject, such as fireworks. Manual: The focus point is to be set manually in advance of recording, and its position is fixed during recording.*Manual focus is useful when it is difficult to focus automatically.
