This is usually caused by a defective shutter release switch - it'll have to go into a repair shop - independent shops will charge about $110 USD - Canon charges about $180

    My XTi was killing batteries as soon as I put them in.... even with the main power switch off.... I was set to junk it but after reading this I tried pushing the shutter release a few times and all is well now... I'm guessing that this is just a early symptom of further problems... So I'll probably get a new camera so I don't get stranded without one... With 2 granddaughters and I need a functioning camera at all times :P

Canon 450d lcd will not turn on at all, viewfinder says busy, and camera will not take pictures


In menu option C.Fn-12 you can choose to switch the display off (or on) when you switch on the camera. The display stays off even if you switch of and on the camera.
Press the button <DISP> and switch off the camera, while the settings for recording are on the screen. After you switch on the camera, the LCD screen will be switched on again.
Please refer toy your english manual, I had to translate, because I don't have the English version.

When I turn on my camera, the screen is dark, and I can't see the picture when I take it


Hhhmmm. This sounds like a 2 case problem. 1) You may have either switched your display to viewfinder. Many of these cameras let you flip back and forth between the viewscreen and the viewfinder.
2) It can either mean that your lcd screen is off. Make sure that you take the cover off the lens, and turn the lcd screen/display monitor on. Or it can mean that your optical sensor is down/dead :(
If you have warranty for the camera than you can resend it to Kodak and get a new one. If you don't then just go ahead to a local camera shop and they can get your sensor switched, will cost a few bucks. Try radioshack, they always have some insight on these type of problems. If you can't, then just go ahead and buy a new camera. Cause without the optical sensor, the camera is not much of use.
Hope I was of any help!

Pictures are appear blurry when reviewing them. I focus the camera object appears clear after I snap the picture it becomes blurry as it is being save for review.


Question : Why are my pictures out of focus (blurry)? Answer : This problem can occur for one or more reasons. Here are some common causes and suggested solutions.
  • The lens is dirty. Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt. Wipe the lens gently with a soft, lint-free cloth or an untreated lens-cleaning tissue. Do not use cleaning solution unless it is designed specifically for camera lenses.
  • The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera has a recommended distance for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures.
  • The subject was not within the effective range of the flash. Each camera has an effective flash range.
  • The camera did not focus or expose the picture correctly. For the best possible pictures, press the shutter button halfway and hold. When the Ready light or framing marks turn green, press the shutter button completely down to take the picture.
  • The LCD screen Preview feature was not used to take a picture in Close-Up mode. Always use the Preview feature in Close-Up mode to confirm focus and to frame the subject properly. If the Preview feature is not used, the LCD will not display an accurate view of the subject.
  • The subject or camera moved. Hold the camera very steady when taking a picture, or place the camera on a flat, stable surface. You may want to consider using a tripod or monopod.

Canon Powershot A75 blurred LCD display


It sounds like the focus element in your lens is not functioning properly. Does the lens retract completely when you turn off the camera? When you push the button does the camera attempt to focus the image? If you do not see any change in the image when you push the button, and do not hear any sound - then your focus motor is either jammed or malfunctioning. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

There are several factors that can contribute to getting better focus and improved results. 1. Auto Focus / Auto Exposure lock. Press the shutter button down HALF WAY. The camera will attempt to adjust exposure to the current lighting environment for maximum benefit. Then the camera will automatically correct the focus based on objects in the center of the display. If the camera can automatically set the focus and exposure, the LED by the viewfinder will turn GREEN. If the camera can not adjust the settings automatically, the LED will turn RED. This process usually takes about two to three seconds. 2. Be sure not to cover the sensor on the front of the camera with your finger. This will disable the automatic focus and exposure controls. 3. Only us the MACRO MODE (Flower Icon) for CLOSE-UP photography. Be sure to use MACRO MODE if you are taking pictures of an object at less than six inches away. Using MACRO MODE improperly will result in poor focus. 4. Rely on the Rear LCD Display. When in doubt, trust the LCD. The LCD will display the subject more accurately than the viewfinder. This will help with "framing" the subject, or determining if you have enough light for proper exposure. 5. Motion can cause a "blur" effect. Either motion of the subject, or motion by the photographer. This phenomenon is just like traditional photography. Moving objects may appear to blur, and this will be even more evident in lower lighting situations as the shutter speed slows down to allow for more light. The shutter will react faster in bright light, and motion will not be as apparent.
