Question about Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Black pictures Exactly the same problem here but zooming the lens in and out hasn't helped, sadly. Neither has restoring factory settings. I have had an on-line quote for £79.95 from eurohightech.co.uk but am not sure if they are reputable. I've bought a new camera anyway but would love to have this one repaired togive to my daughter as it's such a good camera.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

My picture was like 1380x640 but now its 680x480 and i cant play my xbox because the picture is messed up how do i change this... ive tried going into setting and nothing works..


Have you tried adjusting the aspect ratio by pressing the ZOOM button. There you can select Normal, Wide, Zoom, and Cinema modes. Normal mode: selects the aspect ratio that matches the source's aspect ratio.

If this doesn't work, try power-cycling the TV by turning it off, unplugging it & leaving it unplugged for a few minutes. Then plug it back in, turn it on. You can also restore factory default settings.

Press MENU.
Press LEFT or RIGHT to select SETUP, then press DOWN to open the SETUP menu.
Press UP or DOWN to select Restore Default, then press RIGHT or Enter.
When a message asks if you want to restore factory settings, select YES to restore the settings, or select NO to exit without restoring settings.

Are you connected to a cable box with its own remote control, if so, some systems have a zoom control on the cable box remote. Check to see if it is setup to "Movie" mode or similar.

My zoom kens wont come out


If your lens fails to extend or retract, try cleaning it with a lint-free cloth and some lens solution. If it still won't move, try resetting it. Many cameras have reset buttons that restore the camera to the default factory settings.

hope this helps you

please do rate me on this issue

I have a black smoky blur in the top right hand side of my screen, is the camera out of line, rest of the picture is crystal clear dissapears when zoom is at maximum.


It sounds like you have a spot of dust inside your lens. When you zoom to maximum, you are using the "digital zoom" in addition to the optical zoom, and so the camera isn't using the pixels that have the dust spot covering them up. It may be difficult to get the dust out on your lens without taking it apart, but try using one of the dust remover cans you can get at a hardware store. You might have to send it in or take it to a camera shop, and they may have better ways to get it cleaned out. It could also just be a spot on the surface of the lens, which you can clean with a lens cleaning cloth. Post a comment with your rating if this doesn't help, and maybe you can post a picture that shows the defect. That would make it easier to see what exactly is happening.

Problems after repairing a Lens-error (E18) on a PowerShot A530


I think that the lens system is in different groups, which move independently based on a cam system. (This is based on watching the lens move while running the zoom lever.) I would suspect that your "cam timing" is not set quite right. You can either try to correct it by trial-and-error, making only small changes at a time, or send it in for factory calibration.

White Spot


If this white spot is always exactly the same, but moves off the picture when you start to digital zoom and not optical zoom, there is probably something on the sensor. You mentioned that when zooming, eventually it moves. Are you in digital zoom mode at that time? (The switchover from optical to digital zoom is automatic, but you can disable it). Is this white spot blurry or sharp? Can you see fringes of the image at the edges? (This would suggest something on the lens).
If there is a piece of dust inside the lens ,you may be able to see it looking down the lens. How big is this spot?
Either way, if the camera is new, can you still return it?
