Question about Canon PowerShot SD10 / IXUS I Digital Camera

2 Answers

I have a Canon Powershot

I have an SD10 that is producing pictures with dark spots in the same areas in every picture. It started out with fainter and fewer and now it's getting more with some darker spots. Is this camera trashed or what? Anyone's ideas would be appreciated! Thanks, Bryce A

    I tried cleaning the lens with alchohol and a q tip. There are still spots in the same places; although fewer. can a lens get damaged?

Hi and welcome to FixYa.

If the spots appear only when viewed through the display of the camera, then possibly the camera's LCD screen. If however the spots could be seen when the images have been transferred to your computer and viewed on your desktop, then it would be the CCD of the camera. Due to the cost of the replacement part, the intricate repair and alignment involved, replacing the CCD of a digital camera is no longer economically reasonable.Based on the above, the downtime and the effort to effect a repair, you may want to re-evaluate your options and consider purchase of a new camera.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

It could only be the lens. Make sure to clean the lens first using lens cleaner and check if that helps.

There is a dark spot that is showing up on all my pictures and it's getting larger


To make sure this spot is where I think it is, on the sensor, You should put the camera in manual, A priority and whose the highest value. Shoot in bright light a complete white paper.
Then evaluate the picture on the monitor. If the spot is clearly viable the spot is on the sensor. With a fixed lens on your powershot, you can't repair or correct yourself. You should contact Canon. Don't tell Canon, you were in a moist environment. Perhaps a mould is growing on the sensor.

This is not an answer. The S3 normally does not produce dark pictures, and I have seen this issue before. It has to do with a setting somewhere on that camera that needs to be adjusted. I wish I knew what that setting was/is as my wife's camera has recently started doing this ...

Canon powershot SD10 cannot download pictures to computer


hi there
no you don't
just plug the camera in
open (my) computer
look for a hard drive icon that wasn.t there before (this will be your camera hard drive)
open it and inside will be 2 or 3 folders
one of them will have your jpegs in it
copy and paste to wherever you want.

The SD10 is an older, although very nice little Canon digital camera. It's known for its nice pictures in a vrey small package. Here's some info and reviews from owners:

Batteries and chargers for your camera may be found here:

You'll also need an SD card. A 1GB card should be more than enough for your 4 megapixel camera:
