Question about Canon PowerShot SD110 / IXUS IIs Digital Camera

2 Answers

No image through lens

Hi,

My Powershot SD 110 has recently gone haywire. When I turn it on and try to take a picture, the lens doesn't work. All I see is a weird black and white shape, no image related to what I'm trying to take a picture of. Suggestions?

Thanks.

    Shoots mostly black images with whitish streaks across them. Won't play back the perfectly good photos which are still on the disk. Disk is not corrupted, because I tried a second disk with the same result.

First try pressing the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. If that doesn't help, astuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras (including my wife's SD1000, which I have to fix every once in a while with the following easy technique).. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help. By the way, for your camera model, I've found it best to just alternate back and forth between opening the battery door while taking a picture, and gently flicking the lens barrel with the tip of my finger. Usually, it only requires a few tries for my wife's camera, then it's good for another couple months.

Canon Powershot A2000IS pictures corrupted be color wash.


This could be a failing SD card causing corruption of the stored files (the SD card isn't an ebay special is it? there have been some very bad quality cards coming from China recently). Recommend first trying another brand of SD card.

After you've tried another card and it's still doing this, then the symptoms could also be impending CCD image sensor failure. Unfortunately you cannot fix this yourself. But as the A2000 is a relatively new camera, it's likely that you've owned it less than one year and it's still under warranty.

If in US or Canada, call 1-800-OK-CANON to arrange for warranty repair.

Center of picture is soft (out of focus)


paulc846,
There might just be a smudge or fingerprint on the lens, that's enough to cause that to happen to the center of an image. Get some lens cloth on a q-tip and try to gently wipe it clean. If the image is really grainy and the camera has recently been dropped the sensor is damaged. Let's hope for the smudge.

Blurry pictures


I just checked out the canon website, there is a link there regarding the CCD image sensory advisory. They are aware of the problem of all of a sudden getting a blurry picture and will fix it for free. Just call the toll free number on the site and they will send you a free mailing label and tell you what to do. They said it will take 10 days to fix, buy hey it's free.
