Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Focus is completely out of whack

Suddenly when I look at the screen of my trusty old camera everything has become distorted. It seems that it has become fixed on a macro function and pointing it at anything more than a couple of centimeters away becomes just a distorted series of lines.
Has it died?

I'd probably say try a repair place. It's a problem with retractable lenses.. better quality, but prone to problems.

Camera will not focus


There can be so many issues, but to make sure it has nothing to d with any setting, remove the battery and after you replaced it, set the camera to automatic (green camera logo on the main dial)
then try making a pictures as described in the manual:
position a subject to the middle of the frame, press the shutter release button halfway and wait till the subject in the focus area glows green. (I hope this time it works) then press the shutter complete. If it now works, perhaps it is clear where the camera setting was wrong? Be aware the camera needs a subject with enough contrast and enough light to focus correct.
You also could shoot by taping the part the camera should focus on, on the screen. And because yur camera has so many options to focus, i do advice you to look in the manual and check what modes the camera has. Perhaps in the future you can recognise how or on what the camera want to focus.
I hoop your camera does not have any defect.
success.

Focus error? The camera won't focus. Focus Error is displayed in the viewing screen. Zoom action & everything else seems to work fine. Won't focus, won't take pictures.


This is a known issue with Fuji S3000 cameras caused by dust and dirt that get in through the loosely mounted lens mechanism, there are only three solutions.

  1. If under warranty you can send the camera in for repair.
  2. Saturate around the lens with WD40 and wiggle the lens until it becomes responsive again every month or so.
  3. Dismantle the camera and clean out around the internal gear-box and lens components about once a year.

Distorting


if it is wavy lines across the top it is probably the scan converter/ hyper bd they are becoming hard to find/expensive you can repair them but it requires many surface mounted capacitors and requires some VERY skilled soldering.
