Our Canon powershot SD700 IS Digital Elph, behaves like the lens is closed off. I don't see anything in the Display. Is there something I can do to fix it?

That's either a problem with the irus, the main board, the ccd, or something came apart in the lens. Yes, it can be a few different reasons. A lot of people will blame that on the CCD Sensor but it's not always that. The best place to get help with this would be: They just specialize in service for the powershots only and they actually have this no image problem for the SD700 on their site under their service / repair section. It doesn't matter what the cause, the service packages with them are totally flat-rate so it gets fixed no matter what. They charge $79 for the repair, the total service package for the camera, return shipping is included to. They're tough to beat and their work is superb for the powershots. Best of luck with it.

I have the same problem. How do you restart the camera. I have pulled the battery and SD card, but can't get to a menu screen to restart to camera.
