The camera is booting on ok but it does not show any response from half pressed autofocus. The lense does not move and neither does the photo, if it is blurry, it will remain so.

Canon PowerShot SD850 IS / IXUS 950 IS Digital Camera in this both models usually this problem appears, open the camera then take out the lens unit, below this unit you can see the iris control stepper motor and related small wheels this may be worn out or may be misplaced, correct it. if still problem,open the lens unit to check the possible break on the iris lens connecting cable.

Lcd is blurred, but when you took the photo the picture is very fine.

When you are taking the picture are you following the correct procedure? Press shutter button and hold half way till camera focuses. Then without releasing it press it fully down.

Camera not working

i have the same camera as you do and from what expert told me, i have to ship it to Canon or it's authorized dealer for repair. The repair costs about $100 dollars.

In my opinion, it's a rip off!!! :S

Canon ixus 950 shutter stuck half open . when turn on screen says lens error restart camera . tried leaving battery out for 1 hour but still same problem . any suggestions !!!!


The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.
