Camera turns itself off

My camera turns itself on for about 1 second, can't focus itself, and turns itself back off straight away. I tried charging it, thinking it was a battery problem, but had no luck. Please help!

I have a canon powershot sx20..looking through the view finder looks blurry,but after takingt the picture and looking on the screen the picture does NOT look blurry...It's only blurry when looking through...

Your camera is equipped with a optical diopter that will allow you to adjust the optics in the viewfinder to your eye. meaning bringing everything into focus as it should. The way I use this (set it) is to let the camera auto focus on a subject and then turn the diopter until I see the subject clearly.
It really helps if the subject is about 12 feet away (get it real sharp) and the camera is mounted on a tripod. Once set I put a little dot of paper white out on the diopter adjustment knob so if it gets turned I know and can quickly return it to the correct spot. I'm including a diagram where this adjustment knob is on your camera, have fun.

My camera (a Canon PowerShot SX10IS, if it matters) has this tendency to move in and out of focus when I'm using the video recording feature. For example, I can start the video by filming a stationary...

I have the same problem with the same camera. I believe the problem can be solved by turning the knob to MOVIE mode, then push the menu button. When the menu screen pops up. Go to the "camera" tab. It should be the first tab to your far left.

Once you are at this tab, scroll to the very first option which should be the AF FRAME option (Auto Focus Frame). Select "CENTER" for the Auto Focus and do not select "face detect." I think when it is in face detect mode it is sometimes searching for the persons face. If you just leave it in CENTER mode, then it just fixes itself in the center. This is what I am going to try. I think it should work.

Hope that helps.

While shooting the same daylight scene the camera will alternately produce good pictures and then pictures that are very dark.

It sounds as if the iris which adjusts to allow the correct amount of light to enter the camera is sticking. Maybe due to foreign matter being wedged between the vanes of the iris. About the only way I can think of to remedy the problem without visiting the repair man is to set up in a dimly lit room with a torch pointing towards you. Turn your camera on and in the auto mode alternatively point the camera into the torches beam and then away from the torch. This may open and close the iris suficiently to dislodge any fluff or grit from between the vanes. You may have to do it a number of times. A few seconds of bright then a few seconds of dark about a dozen times may do the job. If you have a manual mode try using it by adjusting from wide open to fully closed also a dozen times.
If the camera behaves itself after trying this it should be cured. An old trick but it does work occasionally and well worth a try. Otherwise the iris may need replacing. Which could prove expensive.

One other thing, are you waiting for the camera to set itself up by half pressing the shoot button before each shot. You may be underexposing if you just push the button straight down to take the shot. Make sure you only push halfway to allow the auto focus and auto exposure time to set. Then push all the way for your shot.

Camea keeps switching off doesn't seem to be charging

Could be a problem with either the charger or the power unit in the camera. I would contact a service center to get it serviced.

Focus error show up and can't take any pictures

Had "FOCUS ERROR" appear on my Finepix S9500. The lens seemed to be stuck at the extremity of focus range. I resorted to hitting the camera on a table while turning it off (because this is when it sounded as though the focus motor was trying to move the lens back). Guess what? It worked!!!!!

Camera no screen display

I wish this guy with the twist it blow it and bash it would take his advice eleswhere. He reckons it's the cure all for every digital camera with an extending lens. I've had a couple of the RR10s exhibit no life except a few flashes of an LED. The simple fix was to firmly squeeze the lower half of the camera's front and rear together. What happens is that either over time or if subjected to a slight shock the two main circuit boards part company at a rather large multipin plug and socket. Squeezing the front and rear (just above the hump at the bottom front of the camera)makes this plug and socket return to where they should be. The first one took me about 2 hours trying to figure out but the second took me about 4 seconds to get working again. WARNING don't overdo the squeeze be firm but not aggressive. I use both thumbs on the front and fingers on the back but stay clear of the LCD.
