Try wiping the contacts in the battery cavity with a q-tip soaked with an electrical contact cleaner. Make sure the cleaner does not melt plastic. (Rub it on the side of the battery cavity.) Also clean your battery contacts.

Can see through the viewfinder but not the lcd screen

On this camera the display will turn off when closed. There is a microswitch that controls this. If this switch is bad, the camera will think the display is closed. Have it checked

I push the button but it wont take a picture

Did you try it like it is said in the manual? press the button half till the camera is focused and then press the button completely down?
Don't expect the camera to shoot with the same speed as a camera with film did. Give it some time to focus and everything will be fine (I hope)
If not let me know.

When I turn on my powershot A650IS last night the screen

If you've first tried the DISP button, AND also verified that your downloaded pictures are not also black like the screen, then it's probably just a loose flex cable connection. Please see this other post for info on how to correct the problem.

Transferred the pictures from the memory card onto the computer and put card back in. Tried to turn it on, but now the lens is stuck, it didn't open fully, and I need help. It seems to have frozen while...

This would need to be repaired if the lens is stuck so is the shutter. I would take it in and have it looked at. there is no other resetting then what you already have done ot the unit.

thanks for rating.

Canon Powershot SD1000. Not allowing to take pictures


Try turning the flash off and see if you can then take pictures. If that works then your flash is defective and needs to be replaced.

We are a digital camera repair business (Google Darntoothysam) and we can do that repair for you for a very reasonable price, or you can look for a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Somehow the lens has been twisted, or hit from the side so it's dented or off center. We turned ours in for repair. It doesn't take a lot to get them off center.
