Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannon powershot a570

About a month ago my camera hit the floor by accident. I started getting lense error messages. My husband fixed it and it worked for about a month. Then last night all of a sudden it started acting up again. The lense now comes in and out but when I look in the screen it is blurry and now takes blurry shots. My husbands unemployment ran out so not much money here but need camera working so I can continue to sell things on ebay to make money, any advice I can not afford to send it to anyone. I need to be able to fix it myself.

    It has gotten worse. It is a power shot canon a570 is. She makes this horrible noise and then beeps. It was going in and out but then back to getting stuck either way, and her pictures are blurry even wiith lense all the way out. I am discouraged because I am having to have my old man take pictures of my ebay stuff, and I hate having to bother him, I think something is broke in there or bent and not sure how to fix her.

THERE HAS BEEN SOME LUCK WITH THE FOLLOWING SOLUTION. YOU SAY THE LENS COMES IN AND OUT. DOES IT COME ALL THE WAY OUT AND STOP? DOES IT GO ALL THE WAY IN? THE SOLUTION THAT HAS BEEN MENTIONED FOR THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM IS TO APPLY GENTLE PRESSURE ON THE LENS WITH THE CAMERA ON TO TRY TO HELP THE LENS
ALIGN ITSELF AGAIN. THAT IS TO GENTLY PULL ON THE LENS ON THE WAY OUT AND GENTLY PUSH ON IT WHEN IT GOES IN. THIS MAY HELP ALIGN THE LENS WITH THE GEAR TRACKS. THIS IS NO SURE THING, BUT A POSSIBLE FIX THAT HAS WORKED ON SOME CAMERAS. DROPS ARE ******* DIGITAL CAMERAS. I REALLY HOPE THAT THIS HELPS AND IF I CAN BE OR MORE HELP REPLY TO:ARCLIGHT1217! IF THIS IS HELPFUL, PLEASE VOTE! THANKS! REMEMBER,IF THIS HELPS EVEN SOME, REPLY AND I'LL SEE IF I CAN HELP YOU MORE! OK?

    OK, THE NOISE YOU ARE HEARING IS THE GEARING AND DRIVE SYSTEM THAT DRIVES THE LENS IN AND OUT. IT IS OBVIOUS THAT THIS SYSTEM IS BADLY DAMAGED AND IS NOT TRACKING PROPERLY AND IT IS NOT POSITIONING THE LENS PROPERLY AND THIS IS WHY IT IS OUT OF FOCUS. THE ONLY HELP IS THE CURE I LISTED ABOVE AND IF THAT HAS NOT WORKED I WOULD GUESS THAT YOUR CAMERA IS NOT USER REPAIRABLE AND IF IT WILL NOT LOCUS, NOT USABLE. SORRY, BUT IF THE LENS WON'T RESET IN THE TRACK THAT THE MOTOR DRIVES IT IN AND OUT TO FOCUS IT, YOU JUST WON'T BE ABLE TO FOCUS THE CAMERA. TRY THE ABOVE PROCEEDURE AGAIN AND SEE IF IT HELPS, OTHERWISE I THINK YOU MIGHT NEED TO FIND A USED OR REFURB. CAMERA TO USE FOR YOUR WORK. I WISH THERE WAS SOME MAGIC FIX I COULD OFFER, BUT AFTER A DROP, CAMERAS USUALLY JUST DON'T WORK AT ALL. ARCLIGHT1217

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Canon A570IS lens frozen half way-no power


I have a a570 IS that the lense locked out on. fixing it was going to be the same price as buying new, so I took mine apart and after two tries, i fixed it. I would be willing to take a look at it for a heck of a lot cheaper than Canon can if your willing.

Cannon A590 "Change the batteries" after replacing new batteries


Off-the-shelf NiMH rechargeable batteries, and the special lithium nonrechargeablebatteries sold as esepcially good for camera use, don't have enough voltage output for this camera. Try using regular alkaline batteries or the rechargeables sold by the manufacturer.
