Canon IXUS 40

Hi ... not sure if you can help? I've had my Canon IXUS 40 for a while. Recently I took it to the office & someone else was using it. Somehow they've changed settings & all my images appear out of focus or in focus with vertical lines down. Can you help?

Ixus 40 maximum SDHC card

Your camera is not compatible with SDHC type cards. No 4gb cards for you. It looks like 2gb (non SDHC) cards are the biggest you can use.

UNIQUE PROBLEM: Camera stuck on Movie mode

It's a small world. I have an Ixus V2 on the bench with exactly the same problem. The sliding button on the camera mates with a switch soldered to a flat ribbon cable inside the camera. There are two small teeth which move the internal switch left ot right. What's happened is one of those plastic teeth has snapped off the external part and now it can't push the switch anywhere. If you pulled the camera apart you could push the switch into either record or review but that's it. It will stay in either of those positions. Which is a bummer. The only way to fix it is to buy the complete flat cable ribbon with switch attached and boy it's a long cable. Except for sending it away for repairs (expensive) buy a damaged one on Ebay and do a transplant. Just make sure it's suffering the same fault.
