Question about Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera
My camera turns on and the lens comes out, but when I push the button to take the photo it will not take the photo. Can you help? Seems like everything is working.
Please check your batteries. If they are rechargable it's possible they are losing their abilility to store electricity and if you use Alkaline then I'd advise switching to NIMH rechargeables or place a brand new set of High Output Alkalines in the camera.
Quite often low batteries can have enough power to switch on and light up but just don't have enough to fire or even charge the flash if it's switched on. Or to focus and take the picture. Batteries are the digital cameras biggest problem maker. It's the first thing I always go for because of this and also it's the cheapest repair if they are faulty. Even if you do use rechargables it's possible for one cell to suddenly die and that stops the other cells from doing their job. Obviously, in your case some power is getting through but check them anyway with a known good set.
If your fresh batteries don't do the trick then it looks like you will have to call into your local service agent. Obviously if your camera is under warranty it will be covered by the manufacturer and you can take it back to the place of purchase. Just remember to take you purchase receipt with you.
