Question about Canon PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH / IXUS 800 Digital Camera
How do I use the above mentioned camera as a webcam for MSN Messenger?
SOURCE: want to change the language
Make sure the mode dial is in playback mode and the camera is turned on. Press and hold the Func/Set button, then press the Menu button. This will bring up the language selection screen. Release both buttons and use the arrow keys to highlight the desired language. Press the Func/Set button to select.

I understand that it takes a maximum of 2GB. Still loads of photo/video capability. Don't make the mistake I did of buying a 4GB SDHC card for it. It won't take it.

It may be able to be used that way (but its pretty iffy)...you would have to have to have a computer with an RCA-type video in jack (or an installed TV tuner card with the same RCA-type video in jack).
And if you have that setup on your computer, then you could use the AV cable that is supplied with this camera to send video out (either what is being shown on the screen in shooting mode, or already taken pictures/videos in playback mode) to your PC.
You would then need to point whatever software you are using to broadcast your webcam stream to the "video in" jack as the source of your webcam video (if it even allows for that option).
If you can do all that, it MIGHT be possible, but its probably a pretty long shot.

SOURCE: how to restart Canon IXUS 70
Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they are just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

This camera is designed to store images and videos to a memory card, not to stream them to a computer. It cannot be used as a webcam.

Problem: dust in the gaps near lens which makes it jammed. Effect: the sceen shows blk color. Solution: just blow over it or vaccum it.
