If the camera is showing a black or distorted screen when set to photo, and photos that are taken with the black screen also show up black or distorted, then this would likely be a CCD imager failure, a common occurrence for your model camera.
If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.Please check this linkfor more info.

My cannon power shotA4000IS suddenly stop showing/focused pictures the scree show a blurred image of photo taken?


If you are convinced you did not switch the camera to manual settings, and the blur stays, please contact the nearest Canon certified service centre close to you. But before check the settings on the camera and start putting it on automatic.

The picture has a delayed action


It's not possible to take a photo in a second, because the camera needs to get in focus the object you're taking picture of.

You have a square on your display that indicates where the focus will be.
With whatever function you use, you need to press the shutter button halfway and wait for the camera to focus on the object. When it's focused you will hear the click and the square will turn green.
Now your pictures shouldn't be blurry.

I get blurred images, what seems to be the problem? please help


HI there blurry image came for 2 reason. 1. Lens not adjusting or focusing properly. 2. Sensor damage or your setting is on Macro / close up mode.
Just try this first and let me know. Set the camera as AUTO mode with flash and then take a day time photo. if that photo came blur then clean the sensor & lens external body and try again. If again the result same then you need to repair the lens settings. Thanks.

Photos are blurred.


Blurred images are caused by several reasons: motion due to camera shake, use of slow shutter speeds and failure of the camera to focus correctly.

Slow shutter speeds

When light is low, wide apertures and slow shutter speeds will be selected automatically by the camera. Most people can't take blur-free, hand-held shots when the shutter speed is under 1/60th of a second.

Cameras that have optical Image Stabilization help but even IS has its limits. Increase room lighting, increase the ISO setting or use a tripod, or use a combination of all three.

Blurred images or misfocus

If an image is blurred due to camera shake, the blur will appear throughout the entire image. If parts of an image are in focus, and others are not, you've misfocused.

My fuzzy photos are hard to avoid. How do I take a clear picture?


There are three main reasons photos don't come out clear.
The first is focus. If your photo has something in the near foreground and something in the distant background, you may not get both in focus. This is not as much of a problem with compact point&shoot cameras simply because their field of focus is so deep.
The second cause is subject motion. If you take a photo of a moving object, that object may blur. This is the case if moving objects blur but still objects do not.
The third and main cause is camera motion. If you suspect this, try placing the camera on a table or other stable surface, use the self-timer, and take a photo. Compare this photo with one you take holding the camera.

Blurred subject in middle of photo


I own Rebel XT and Canon 50mm f1.8 MKII lens with plastic mount and noticed many pictures with missed focus, either front or back focusing. Meaning objects slight forward or below the intended subject is in focus. I've sent my body and the lens to Canon for evaluation and thet adjusted my focus sensors on the body. I still have problems and there are many threads related to focusing on this camera with 50mm f1.8 that the sensors on this camera do not do so well with fast lens and prone to missed focus.
Test your camera's focusing ability with a book or magazine where you focus on just one specific line and see if it is truly in focus when you review the picture.
