Question about Canon PowerShot SD990 IS / Digital IXUS 980 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a Canon Power Shot SD990 digital camera. It takes great pictures except when I want to take a close up picture of an item I want to put on Ebay. I have read my manual, but can't seem to get the blur out of the pictures. They are okay, but not crisp like other pictures of subjects.

Are you taking the pictures in "macro" mode? This requires a steady hand so a tripod is a good idea.

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 this link for further info and a simple fix that may help:

I just had the same problem. I sent the camera to the factory repair place and they fixed it in 5 days free. Even tho the camera is two years old and out of warranty.

E 18 problem


the E18 means the lens system has a problem. I had it with my S2 and sometimes it worked, sometimes not. Eventually it stopped working. The only solution was sending it to repair, they changed the lens system.

Digital Camera Malfunction


mine just started doing the same thing a few weeks ago. I had downloaded pixes to the computer, went outside to take picture and it started acting up. strange lines appear on the screen, but the codes are all there, and you can view the pictures that are on the card. no, the card is not full, the batteries are fine. I think it has a virus built in to start trouble so we will go buy a new one!
