This is caused by a bad lens motor, contamination in the transmission, or mechanical damage from dropping. The only fix for this is to have it serviced by Canon or other camera repair facility.

Canon IXUS 850 IS digital camera, video sound is not clear, can hear sound and voices, but very faint with mostly static noise, tested in multiple rooms in door and out with same issue


Possible that the mic within the camera is bad or there is obstruction to the mic. Please check and clean any dirt , place the camera and shoot without holding to confirm if the sound is better or not.

My external is making a faint tick, tick, tick


I am sorry to inform you that your drive is failing. Normally drives will start with a faint ticking then move onto a solid clicking sound and maybe even a grinding noise. You will need to backup all of the data on that drive and then download the diagnostic utilities from your drive's manufacture and run the testing tool. If you can hear any ticking there is a very good chance the drive will fail the diagnostic tests. Assuming it fails you will then be able to RMA your drive for a working one as long as it is still under the warranty period. If your drive passes all the testing from the manufacture's tool I would advise you backup your data from that drive regularly and run the diagnostics weekly until it throws and error code.

Ticking sound


We have a similar problem which was from a bad coed to receiver connection.
Try holding the point to where you hear the 'tick' and wait for the connection.

Lenc cover will not open


This can be caused by several different situations. Most commonly the camera has experienced some kind of impact which knocks an element out of alignment, preventing the lens from rotating normally. Symptoms of this include: *you may hear no mechanical sound at all when the camera is turned on *you may see visibly mis-aligned components of the lens *you may hear a loud "snap snap" sound as the camera tries to move the lens when the camera is powered on The second most common cause is a particle of sand getting stuck in the focus motor drive gears. This prevents the focus element from moving normally and causes the camera to shut off to prevent damage to the lens assembly. Symptoms of this include: *A loud "buzzing" sound when the camera is turned on, followed by the beeping and shutdown. Finally the third most common cause of this problem is a broken tooth on the zoom motor drive gears. Symptoms of this include: *the sound of the running motor with a regular "click click click" sound for several seconds. This will not be a "snap snap" sound, that is a different problem. *the lens will move in and out easily by hand as if free from any resistance. All of these problems require disassembly to repair. The charge is around $125 labor at my shop.

No Picture No Sound


I think you have a short somewhere inyour set most likely the horizontal output transistor which may have shorted by the high voltage transformer going bad. The faint ticking sound that you hear is the power supply trying to start but the shorted load won't let it. Stargazer
