What kind/type of charger should be used with a Canon IXUS 86015?
Some tourists left this model of camera in the back seat of my dad's taxi and when he found did, it was too late to return it as they had already left the country. Now we wanted to buy a charger in order to use it.

You can find a new charger by searching for your camera's model number (add the word "charger") on Amazon, but it might be better to get one of the "universal" chargers instead. There are several makes of these, that will charge any of the small lithium batteries used in cameras and phones, so you won't have this problem again. And the universal chargers are often cheaper than the ones dedicated to a single battery type.
If your camera came with a charger for the battery, then it is unlikely that it will charge from the USB lead.
Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...
Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
Turn the camera on, and make sure you are in the playback mode (not picture taking mode). Press and hold the FUNC button, and while holding it press the MENU button. You should see a list of languages available on the LCD screen. Use the arrow keys to select English, then press the FUNC button again.
Sounds like you (inadvertently?) had the Color Accent Mode turned on (an icon which shows an eyedropper with an A next to it), which is available on the same menu where you select Manual Mode.
When you press the Func/Set button, with the icon in the top left corner highlighted, along the bottom you will see the options available, including the Color Accent Mode, any of which are selectable by using the left/right arrows and pressing the Func/Set button again.
Hey thaze, According to the manufacturer you need to press the playback button, which looks like a triangle pointing to the right. Next you need to hold down the func. /set button, and press the menu button. Next you need to use the up/down arrows, or the right/left arrows to choose the desired language and then press the func. /set button. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
