Re: all of the functions of
Don't hit it. With the camera on, have you tried pressing the DISP button once? It's the bottom button on the back of your camera.
As a side note, the DISP button was intended for digital cameras with an optical viewfinder (something the SD750 and newer elphs no longer have). The idea was to allow the user to manually turn the display on or off as desired to save batteries, and then just aim the camera through the viewfinder. I'm curious as to Canon's justification for including this button on their newer cameras that do not have a viewfinder?

You would need to take out all moisture
trapped in the camera: Dry the camera, battery, any accessory, etc. with
cloth and wrap each piece, camera and accessories, in
newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place
the wrapped camera in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids
direct contact of rice
with your camera because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of
the camera. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with
the bag open) at least 24 hrs.
1.put in auto mode 2. Hit Function set button 3. Where it lets use choose sizefrom L, M1, M2...scroll to Post Card 1600x 1200 4. hit function set again 5. Hit Menu, now you can select time date stamp 6. took me awhile to figure it out
I had a Cannon EasyShare CX7000 many years ago, had the same problem exactly, Canon cameras are not that durable when it comes to dropping it, but I have a Cannon Powershot SD1000 and I have dropped it numerous times and it still functions like it's new. three words REPLACE YOUR CAMERA. oh, and there is no reset button, you are out of luck
If the camera is playing back recorded images but shows blank diplay at camera mode, you have a case of defective ccd chip. The CCD chip board needs to be replaced to remedy the problem. This model is not under advisory repair from the manufacturer so it will probably cost you for the repair. Canon was charging around $120-149 for the repair
