Question about Canon PowerShot SD10 / IXUS I Digital Camera

Canon Ixus-I 4.0 Meg

I can capture a photo, after clicking the button, my preview photos are distorted, when I hit playback, still I have distorted image, I have "Vertical Lines" on my photos. I Went to Canon Service Center, asking me $200 for the optical lens replacement and labor, I rather get a new one for that price, but I still want my Old Ixus-I to work.

They said it was the optical having problem, when i used video, no problem previewing the video. It must be capacitors also, burnt due to heat maybe?

Do what the pros do....use a card reader instead of the camera. When you plug it into the USB port, an icon will appear called "NO NAME". Double-click on it and the pics will open in "preview". From there, you can import them to a folder you create on your desktop or into iPhoto. d05ed6a.jpg

It wont focus and the photo is blurred

If the camera is showing a black or distorted screen when set to photo, and photos that are taken with the black screen also show up black or distorted, then this would likely be a CCD imager failure, a common occurrence for your model camera.
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 this linkfor more info.

Try to see If you can see a photo in Playback mode from your memory card (Transfer a good photo to the card first) Do all the menus display correctly? If so it would seem the camera sensor (ccd) is bad. Canon had a recall on these models with bad sensors and will repair them free of charge.

Blank LCD screen

First, let's try the obvious. Did you accidentally hit the "DISP" button (bottom row of buttons, third from the left)?

If not, you mention you can see the photos on the PC. Do they look fine, or are they also black or distorted?
