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.

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

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate.

Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Upon turning on the canon power shot s 400, the screen lights up like an old tv with horizontal gain problems - flashing horizontal lines in very rapid succession. can you help?


See this link. Canon has issued a world wide service advisory about the CCD image sensor in several models of cameras. If they determine that this is the problem (and your symptoms indicate it is), they will repair your camera at no cost, regardless of warranty status.
