Zoom lens problem

I bought my canon ixy 800 about 10 months ago, it has been an excellent camera, but when i turned it on 3 weeks ago, whenever the zoom lens moves it makes a loud grating sound i guess you would call it...It sounds like something is jammed in there or something, a friend of mine with the same camera is also experiencing the same problem....is this a factory default? or something we've both done

Most often these problems occur because of shocks received by the camera. The zoom mechanism in the lens assembly gets knocked out of place. Sometimes this happens just like that, without any clear reason. The lens assembly is a delicate mechanism if one small part gets out of the place it will damage or jam the whole mechanism. A service center can check for that. There is no way for the end user to proper realign the lens mechanism because it is sooo small. It requires specialised tools and hardware. Also, when you take the camera to a service, ask them an estimate of the repair, you will know if it is worth it. Repairs vary form a simple lens adjustment to the need of having the whole lens assembly replaced

Adding a lens to my camera


To be sure you can use the lens, buy a Canon EOS lens. The plastic ones, can be cheap. I bought my last lens 28 - 80 mm, couple of months ago, for 5 dollar. and a working EOS 500 was connected for the same price. (lens and camera are still in good working order) Don't try other brands, because even when you find a convertor, it could be the lens will only work on manual focus.

My lens is locked and i cannot zoom


I had the same problem with the same lens. Over a few months it got lose, eventually getting so sloppy that it dropped if my 40D was held down. 10 days ago it jammed and the zoom was locked. I sent it to Canon and received it back in a week and it is now like new. Please don't try and fix it leave it to the experts at Canon. Not sure what the cost was as mine was still just under warranty
I think that this is a common problem with this lens and beleive that something in the lense works loose and eventually drops into the mechanism.

Bought used ixy 10.0 mega pixels 3x15 zoom lens no instruction manuel. Battery is dead. can i recharge battery or must i replace...what is required...is manual available


If you have the IXY 1000, you can download a manual here (the US version is the SD900). The battery is a Canon proprietary battery, and there is a recharger available from Canon to charge the battery, The specific charger you need will depend on where you live -- different countries have different standard voltages and connector plugs.

Lens making strange clicking noise when turned on or zoomed in.


If the noise wasn't there for 3 days and is there now, it can only get worse. I would return it for a replacement.

Canon IXY Digital 800 IS


Find a few Canon repair shops, and describe them your problem, and they should be able to give you rough estimates. I've had estimates for same mechanical problem from $200 to $15.

If you are adventurous (and the manufacturer's warranty is expired), remove all the tiny screws, and see if this is something simple, and you can tell repairman what specific part you need - their estimate will be more accurate that way.

Canon powershot A75 -cannot focus and image not clear


This sounds like a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
