    This is the second time for my camera to freeze. The first time I finally got it shut off by just pressing buttons but now I can't do anything. It's just frozen on a picture I was viewing and no buttons will work.

    I have the same problem. Just bought this camera for Christmas and while looking at pictures, all operations freeze. The only thing I've come up with is to take out the battery, put it back in and start over. This works - but is annoying and probably not too good for the camera.

The tv froze up while watching netflix and won't turn off or do anything

Sounds like the CPU froze. Unplug set from power completely, then plug back in, should work. If not then the problem will have to be solved by a repair technician.

Camera is frozen and won't turn off. Can't do anything with it

The Casio Tryx has a tiny reset button next to the memory card slot, move the cover and you will see it. This should fix the problem. My screen froze on my wife and she thought, hell I thought she broke it. But works great now. Good luck

LCD frozen

These cameras are very heat sensitive, keep them cool. If your camera is still in warranty, Canon may replace it. Good luck, I really like my 410, it's easy on batteries.
