Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Camera froze whilst taking pictures, lens stuck.

My 3 year old takes pictures but tends to press other buttons at the same time. Whilst taking some pictures the camera stopped working, all the lights are off and it is locked. Cannot seem to power up/power down. I've replaced batteries etc but it appears dead. Wonder if a button could be jammed down or whether anyone has experienced a similar problem.

It happend to me also. I think it is caused by the lens mechanism. It is stuck and it disabled all other functions.

I had the same thing with my camera. I think it is due to the lens mechanism. It is stuck in one position and thus disabled all other functions on the camera. Try to get the lens un-stuck...

Have you ever cleaned the contacts on the lens and the camera body where they meet? If not, do so now with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

I HAVE A PROBLEM W/ THE LENS OF MY KODAK EASYSHAREDX4530.WHENEVER I TRY TO TAKE PICTURE WE CANT SEE THE IMAGE ON THE SCREEN


Ok not sure if you mean whilst taking the picture or after, if this is whilst you need to select the picture mode i.e Auto, Sport, Night, etc, the camera will display the config on the screen for a few seconds, in this time hit the OK button this will set the picture to Liveview, you will be able to see them on the screen,
Now to see the pictures you have taken you need to push the review button and scroll through the images,
Let me know if this helps if not i will look into it more for you.

Nikon lens 18--55mm stuck


Dropping is the most common cause or a knock whilst whilst the lens is out.
Dirt ingress is another possibilty.
It is almost always physical damage - or a low battery.
There is- as always this out of warranty items of this class no repair opportunity

Camera mode won't come up. . .


Just a quicky, this happened to me whilst in warranty and it required a replacement PCB (printed circuit board). Sorry for the bad news

Lens motor is shot. If an older camera- buy a new one a repair will cost nearly as much. If young-[less than a year] send it back
