SOURCE: The Auto focus just stop working

Hey Sammymalone,
This lens should have a 1 year manufacturers warranty on it, and if my guess that the USM motor is burned out is true I would have it serviced by an authorized service technician. Before you do this though I would try cleaning the lens contacts to make sure it is communicating with the camera body. I of course am going on the assumption that you have tried other lenses on the camera body to make sure the problem is the lens and not the body. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: Hello, We have a Canon

I've seen that before and in my experience it's usually due to the autofocus motor going. Your best bet would be to contact the Canon Imaging in your country and see what they suggest you do.

How do I turn off the flash for the canon powershot a630?


First of all, the flash can not be turned off in "Auto" mode. You can turn it off in any mode other than Auto. Would recommend Program "P" mode, which is very similar to Auto, but allows you to modify certain minor items such as flash and white balance.

Rotate your mode dial to "P", then press the button on the back with the "lightning bolt" icon. Press until the lightning bolt with a slash shows up on your LCD screen. The flash is now turned off in Program mode. Try taking a picture.

Remember, if in low light conditions you'll need to keep the camera extra steady without flash to get a clear picture. Recommend placing the camera on a table or chair (or even better, use a tripod), then using its autotimer to snap the picture.

I am trying to set the self timer, can anyone help me with that?


Self timer is not available in AUTO mode.
Please check the other options ( As I do not remember the other right now)
Select the other options available (eg: Tv,Av etc) and hit function key and scroll down.
In the self timer it self you can also mention how many shots you want to take.
Also you can see teh manual. In the last pages it is being under teh section Self timer.

Lost manuel to canon powershot A630 and I wanted to know how to take a black and white picture.


By pressing the center button on the four-way controller, you'll open up the Function menu. This menu has the following options:
  • ISO speed (Auto, High ISO Auto, 80, 100, 200, 400, 800) -
  • White balance (Auto, daylight, cloudy, tungsten, fluorescent, fluorescent H, underwater, custom) -
  • Drive (Single-shot, continuous, self-timer [2 or 10 sec, custom] -
  • My Colors (Off, vivid, neutral, sepia, black & white, positive film, lighter skin tone, darker skin tone, vivid blue, vivid green, vivid red, custom color) -
  • Flash exposure compensation (-2EV to +2EV in 1/3EV increments) - in manual mode you can adjust the flash strength in three steps (1/3, 2/3, full)
  • Metering (Evaluative, center-weighted, spot)
  • Compression
  • Resolution
