Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nothing on the screen

I have a brand new Canon Ixus 75, the battery is in place and fully charged and there is an SD card there too (the one that came with it) but when I turn on the camera, there is no image. The display is there but I can see no image on the screen and can't take a picture.. is this a problem with the camera or am I just missing something?

    I pressed the "DISP" button just now, all it does is show or hide the display options, the screen itself remains blank..

My canon ixus 75 reads card locked

Take a look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Ihave a Canon PS SD 750 digital camera, that wont start, even with a fully charge battery? Is this a battery problem?

I believe your camera's software will have to be updated. You can probably download the update from Canon's website.

Screen says card locked. how to unlock? Canon ixus 75

Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera.

But if you have already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

My canon ixus80is

The Digital ixus 80is is fully SDHC compliant so should work with all SDHC capacities. There are no reports yet of incompatibility with the larger capacity cards as long as they have been supplied from trusted sources.

Every SDHC compliant camera which I've recently dealt with has only had problems when fitted with cards from suspiciously cheap suppliers. If an SDHC card is too cheap then it's almost invariably counterfeit and what's inside the card does not match the label outside, often they're plain low capacity SD cards.

As long as you stick to major brands from trusted sources you should be OK but bear in mind that the 16GB SDHC variants slow the camera functions down significantly compared to using an 8GB model.

I hope that you've found my answer to be of use and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Camera will not turn on. Battery fully charged;

You can give it to an expert for repair, he can repair it for less as there must be just a fuse problem, which can be fixed for a very less amount.

Canon Sd 750

Hey kirby18,
I would try cleaning the battery contacts with alcohol and cotton swabs, and if this doesn't work you can try replacing the battery with a new battery. If neither of those options work I would suggest having the camera looked at by an authorized service technician.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Canon ixus 75 memeory card

On the SD card itself there is a little tab that slides back and forth. It should be closest to the the end you put into the camera first. If it broke off, then the camera is stuck in lock mode. If this is the case, it's not worth trying to glue something in its place...just invest in a new one.

Canon parweshor s400 ixus

First of all have you seen the answers you got on a parallel post? -,p294010/Canon-Digital-Cameras.aspx Some good suggestions there. Always try to leave the battery charging until fully charged. Batteries like to be fully charged and then fully drained, it's not 100% causing this specific problem, but it will prolong your battery life. Certain small brands for memory cards can have compatibility problems with some cameras, including a "card locked" message, when the card isn't locked. The big brands(kingston, sandisk etc) will usually work fine and fast with all cameras. Pretec is also pretty good. Try using another card, and see if the problem persists. And don't completely rule out the possibility that you have the card locked... ;] Good luck
