This model has had problems with the switch block assembly. The shutter control is a two stage switch which gets stuck and attempts to fire the shutter when the camera is powered on. This is not a very serious problem and is easily resolved by a qualified technician. Replacing the switch block takes a bit of skill and should be done by a Canon service facility. Good Luck my friend Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

Cannon A610 shuts off when i push button to take photo


OK, long shot, but you never know. Press the top cover dowsn when you shot a photo. If camera is not powered off, then fasten the 3 screws that you may find at the top of the batteries housing unit.

Canon Powershot A495 Wont power on using the ON/OFF button


The problem is short on playback button due to humidity (see differences between the buttons on foto no.1), wich can be removed mechanically using a pin and making two holes(inlet/outlet) at the side of the button where no wiring running(!) and with a hypo carefully shooting air beetween the foils. It is useful to lift up little bit the spring button from the bottom foil to remove the short. A hair dryer can be also helpful to dry out the space between the foils. Please check the fotos and link too.
The camera will not power on by battery insertion when short is over. To protect buttons against repeted defects I used an adhesive tape to close the openings on the top of the buttons.

No image is available to view on the lcd screen canon ixus85is


Click the "disp" button. The display of the camera has been turned off in the LCD screen but you can still use the viewfinder, this functionality is just for those who prefer to use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen.

Cannon SD 750 - when i try to take a picture a black screen appe


Think that you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Cannon G6 - Picture shows as portrait not landscape


Sounds like an oversensitive autorotate sensor. Recommend holding the camera very steady when taking a picture. If it still acts up, recommend just turning the sensor off, as you can use just about any photo editing software to rotate your photos if desired.

Press the Menu button, find and select the "Setup" menu, go down the list to find the "Autorotate" selection to turn it on/off.
