I sent my camera off to Canon and they repaired it under warranty for free. It took about a week for them to fix and cost me about $10 to ship with postage, insurance, etc. There was some issue with the optical zoom getting stuck. If your camera has this problem, I would recommend sending it into Canon for repair. Worse case, if it is not broken - you are only out shipping costs. I was lucky since by brother-in-law and I were able to compare camera's side by side and then I knew for certain that it wasn't a user setting.

Short answer no, all digital cameras have a reset in the menu and some have an external reset switch. Chances are your camera has an internal error.

I have the same exact problem and called the Canon number 1-800-828-4040. They said it sounds like a manufacturing problem (just as mentioned above) and will send me a label to ship Camera (at their expense) to them to be checked out. Even thought I purchased this in Oct. 2005- they will repair it and send back to me ...if the image sensor is bad. If it isn't a manuf. problem they will let me know & give me the option of upgrading at a discount price. Thank goodness- this camera wasn't cheap and they were very helpful!! It doesn't hurt to call!! Karen from NC
