    I have this same camera and I am having the same problem. I have only had it for ONE MONTH and it just stopped turning on. I am certain I didn't drop it or get anything inside the lens. I charged my battery, and even put in an older battery from a previous camera and it still won't turn on. Really frustrating. I had the same camera before I got this one, but that one I dropped and got that stupid E18 message because the lens couldn't retract... I love this camera so much, but I'm just having so many problems with it!

    I just got my Canon PowerShot SD1000 less than a month ago from Dell. It worked fine until yesterday when it just wouldn't turn on. The battery is fully charged and I haven't dropped it or anything like that. I have no idea what the problem is. Hopefully Dell can take it back :(

Did the camera sustain any damage (dropped, water damage etc)? If not I would check with Canon or the reseller to see if you can return the camera.

As a last resort you could sell the broken camera on Ebay. I know you would get around 80-90 for it. The SD1000s price is dropping now so you could turn around and buy one for around $160.

Battery wont charge


If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My Canon powershot SD1000 screen isn't working. Iv'e charged the battery but when I turn the camera on, the screent is black. It won't take any pictures


It's very likely the CCD sensor that needs to be replaced. If you need to have it serviced, this place is excellent for the Powershots and not much at all if you need to have one fixed: www.camerasandparts.com
Before having it fixed, press the DISP button first and make sure you just didn't turn the display off. If you end up needing service for the Canon, that place above is really great for these cameras.

When i try to veiw photos the camera turns off Canon Powershoot SD1000


Ensure that the battery is fully charged. If the battery is fully charged and the problem continues, export all the photos to a computer and format the memory card.
If there is an issue with the memory card, formatting may resolve the issue.

Canon SD1000 lens error


Turn off the Camera, remove the Battery pack, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Reinsert the Battery, then buzz around the lens for a few times then check if it works. Make sure that the Battery is fully charged.

The error message indicates that the lens is not able to adjust itself.

My Canon Powershot SD1000 has a fully charged battery but won't turn on at all.


Does your camera turn on when it's in playback mode? I have a similiar problem with mine. It only turns on in playback mode.

Canon SD1000 blurred pictures and blurred LCD, Camera wont focus! please help ive had it for 2 weeks


The best chance to use your SD1000 is to set to picture, push ISO (on top of the func. set ring) and set to hi. This works pretty well. Do not bother sending any camera to Canon, they charge the "standard charge" plus for all their manufacturing problems on all Canon cameras. Definately the worst customer service on the market.
