Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Can't Access Menu + Zooming in

Same problem as other user has but with different camera! My Canon IXUS 50 suddenly upon turning it on, immediately zooms out to max and does not allow me to do anything...like open the menu. 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.

    I have same problem on my Ixus-55. None of the buttons will do anything. I had this problem before and it was fixed under warranty. But now the warranty has expired.

I am that other user and just sent the camera in to Canon for an estimate. Naturally it is out of warranty. There does not seem to be a fix that I could do so finally just sent it in. I'll post what they say if you want to wait before sending yours in. Good luck.

Hi im using a canon digital ixus 9515 camera and I have the wrong date stamp on all my recent photos. How can I delete the date?


There is no way you can delete the date stamp from the photos you have taken.
For future photos you can either correct the date or disable insertion of date stamp.

My canon camera ixus 100is wont turn on and have fully charged battery need help getting it going my daughter goes on holiday on friday


it s probably the the camera have receive a pressure or is fall down??
problem can be different. the contact dont touch exactly on the batterie. prove to clean the internal contact with a cotton stik and alcohol. if you dont solve the problem. i think that the problem are serious. can be in the lens if the camera turn on and turn out immediately if the camera dont turn on completly the problem can be in the motherboard of the camera. prove if you have a friend with another batterie. its possible that the problem is in the batterie countact. but i hope that you are lucky..why mostly the problem is internal the camera. i am sorry.
sorry for my english

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.

I have a Canon IXUS 40 how do i turn on the digital zoom



Heres the support site for that model http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=224&modelid=10599
I would never use the digital zoom on a camera, as you can do exacttly the same on a computer - so keep the full optical setting and the you can zoom in and crop using a PC - with a lot more control

Hey!
Kindly look at your camera's User Guide. On page 72 you'll have the instructions on how to turn the digital zoom on/off.

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

Canon S70 does not work


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.
