Digital Zoom not working


Check the camera's "shooting mode". By default "digital" zoom is NOT on. Instead, according to the manual, you actually have to set it on as part of the camera's shooting mode setting. It's accessed from the main menu (Ok button), choose right arrow, then up and right to choose the "camera" settings. You should see the setting for "digital" and you may see it's OFF, in which case just turn it ON.

There is also a group portrait mode shooting program that can set the optical zoom to WIDE only. This is accessed by hitting the left arrow when you turn the camera on (the circle with the dots). By default it should be "P" for auto program, but if it's set to the icon with 2 people in it, that appears to set wide angle only.

Alas, I checked this last thing on mine and it just seems the lens is stuck (I hear a short whir and that's it, and it is set on "P"). Any suggestions for a mechanical repair?

Canon sure shot 90u


Take the battery out then push some buttons - the zoom buttons or the release button - til the LCD goes blank. This sometimes resets the circuit if there is really no problem. Then reinsert the battery and try again. If the H reappears, there is a problem with your zoom. It'll have to go to a repair shop.
