Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

Canon S70 does not work

My Canon S70 suddenly upon turning it on, immediately zooms out to max and does not allow me to do anything...like open the menu. I have tried different batteries and CF cards, but nothing works. None of the other function buttons work and if I hold down the menu button for 5+ seconds it does not return the camera to it's factory settings. Any ideas????

    Can you expound a bit more on how to fix? The shutter button?

    I sent the camera in for an estimate and just got this reply for a price of $135.....DENT TO LENS SHUTTER. UNIT DOES NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY. CHECK ALL FUNCTIONS, REPAIR TO GOOD WORKING ORDER. FLAT RATE REPAIR MODEL, PARTS AND LABOR INCLUDED IN PRICE

    I never dropped or hardley even used the camera. Is it worth it to repair it since it is 2 years old?

    Many thanks !!!!

I was experiencing the same problem - I think the Button and Zoom had become jammed down slightly. I simply lightly applied pressure lifting the surround of the button up! My camera is now working perfectly.

Your electronics appear to have a poltergeist. Check with manual or mfg if there is a reset of unit to factory defaults. If this or a hard reset will not cure the issue then it is time to go shopping since repair is not cost effective unless this was a very, very expensive camera initially.

Optical zoom problem in movie mode


Your camera is not broken. That's by design. Canon cameras do not allow optical zoom use while in movie mode. Canon claims that using the optical zoom in movie mode would cause excessive noise in the movie. However, you can use digital zoom in movie mode. You'll need to go into the menus (press the menu button) and turn digital zoom "on" if it's currently off.

Zoom button is malfunctioning


tons of people w/ any canon elura series cameras including myself, with a canon elura 80 have the same zoom problem. It does not appear that canon has done anything to try to solve this mass problem with this series of cameras. Oddly enough the only way to solve this problem is to give it a tap and gentle hits near the zoom button to release what would seem to be a jam. Sorry that there's really no straight forward answer, but for now its the best i can give.

Camera refuses to zoom out


I had a similar problem. The lense extended when I turned the camera on and immediately retracted and turned off by itself. I pulled the memory card and then reinserted/reseated it. It appears to have fixed my problem.

Canon S70 does not work


Canon Technical Support is the next place to go. This is a firmware error- maybe not a correctable problem except by replacement
