Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera
The zoom is stuck in one place, when i turn the camera off, it retracts but only a bit and when i zoom as far as the camera can go, the zoom wont retract at all.
Hi there. I can help you with that.
The number one problem with cameras with lenses that won't retract or or move out into position is dirt, grit or sand in the lens mechanism. The best way to fix this is to get an air compressor and put the tip up the lens and blow air into the space around the lens. Run the tip of the compressor nozzle around the lens and turn the camera back on. See if that helps. If it doesn't do it one more time.
If it helps, great. Stop there. If it doesn't help, let me know in a comment and I will tell you a couple more things to do. I want to wait, because they are things that you should only try if you are ready to trash the camera, but they usually work. Hope the air compressor works.
