Hi this problem isnt something you can repair by pressing buttons it seems that the lense has got damged or forced pass its normal place causing the focus problem their isnt nothing you can do yourself as it will require the lense being replaced the problem is you cant get them replaced it just isnt financially worth it as it would cost more than the camera itself.
Unless the lense needs cleaning then their is no setting you can change.
Have you got any warranty left on it if not try giving canon an email or phone call and they might repair it for you just explain the problem and if its a known fault with that model they will replace the camera for you.
Sorry i couldnt give you good news but any camera shop will tell you that unless the camera is worth £1000 or $1750 they just dont repair them or even sell the parts you would need

When I look through my lens, the object is totally out of focus no matter what I do. The object looks blurry and color is grayish/brownish. What could be causing this?


You do not say if the pictures you take come out blurred?

I believe this powershot model (depends on the precise model/variant) has an optical adjustment just by the side of the viewfinder (small lever or knob). Try adjusting this to bring your view back into focus.

Check you have not set any special effects on eg soft focus portrait and sepia - probably safer to do a camera reset - see your instruction book.

Good luck

I cant view the picture clearly while shooting and playback too.i was on a picnic 2wks back,and was taking pictures with my canon SD550 POWERSHOT CAMERA.. all of a sudden the display in the screen blurred...


There is a focuing ring with electromagnets on it, and it swivels to focus. When sand, dirt, lint, or dust works its way into the lens assembly, it can get stuck, failing to focus.
Spray some compressed air into the lens area to try to dislodge it. Then bump it gently if the compressed air doesn't work. Here is a list of things you can try for a jammed lens:

If these don't work, your focus ring is jammed and you will have to fix it or have it serviced. Get an estimate first, since the cost of repair often justifies buying a new camera.
Good luck, these tips might help you.

Auto focusing not working, Lenses don't rotate at all


i did some research on this problem and one of the things mentioned was that there may be a firmware update to address an autofocus problem with this camera.
Here is a page that may help you get the firmware update.
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=215&modelid=17779#DownloadDetailAct

also another thing you may want to do to alleviate this problem is to reset your camera settings to the default setting and try it.

Good Luck

Canon EOS Digital Rebel 300D will not take pictures


Have you tried to take picture by switching off the autofocus to manual focus in a prperly lit environment?
If it takes a picture, then it has something to do with your auto focus system of your camera. In such a case: try taking out the battery, the memory card etc and switch off the camera and keep it for like that for about 5 minutes. And then insert only the fully charged battery and try again.
If it still gives you a problem and keep trying to focus You will need to take it to the nearest Canon Service centre.

Autofcous and manual focus do not work


excuse me if this is a dumb question but you wouldn't believe the things people do...., but in manual mode are you actually manually trying to move the lens? as manual mode means just that you take hold of the lens and turn it. If it wont turn it sounds like the lens is jammed and needs returning/repairing.

if taking hold of the lens and turning it works for manual mode, take the lens off and clean the gold contacts on both the camera and the lens with a pencil erasor this may bring the auto focus back to life, switch back to auto and try again, if not its most likely the lens but take the body to a canon store and try another lens just to double check the body is ok

drop me a line if i can be of further assistance

best of luck
