Canon SX40 HS wont reset to factory settings


I own a same model camera but the problem you mention is new to me. I would try re-setting individual menus to their defaults first, then switch off the camera for sometime then re-start. This time, try the factory re-set option. This is no definite solution to your problem, but it;s worth trying because I had a smaller (pocket-size) Canon camera sometime back that worked that way.

I received a Leica Digilux 2 from a relative and i cant seem to see anything thru the viewfinder or the lcd screen. Its just black. Is the shutter not open? I can see all the numbers and settings around...


Open the back of the camera. **** the camera as if you were advancing the film. While looking in the back, push the shutter release, like you were taking a photo.
You see the mirror flip up and glimpse a flash of light as the camera cycles.
If you do not see the mirror flip up and return, the camera needs serious repair..
As for the LED Display, put some new batteries in it.

Photos have a black band at top and bottom. This has never occurred before on my Canon EOS Rebel XT. I use auto mode for all functions and have not changed any menu settings.


If you use the lens in wide and the f lash is not wide as same (if the lens is 18 wide and the f lash is 28 wide ) you will not get good photo so if use 18 mm wide lens then use 18 mm wide f lash and ( i have told about external flash )

Screen border


You are probably in the "3:2" ratio print setting. This is accessed through the "F" button, under image quality. The 3:2 is a ratio of height to width which corresponds to a 4x6 inch print. The other settings are approx. 4x5.33 inches in h to w ratio. Just change the quality setting to the larger megapixel settings and the bars will disappear.
