Question about Canon PowerShot SD790 IS/ IXUS 90 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Cannon Powershot SD790IS will not longer take photos. It comes on when I press the power button but no image appears in the viewfinder and a "blue light" remains on in the back of the camera. Any suggestions? thanks, Ed Mabe

Does the lens extend, if yes, then it is possible that the pickup sensor (CCD) is defective and needs repair.

My lcd display won't show the camera image while taking pics but it will show the menu and previously taken photos by pressing the play button. What could be wrong?


Turn the camera on, and press the DISP button on the back of the camera. This turns the LCD screen on and off. The idea of this button is to save battery power (you would then use the peep hole optical viewfinder in its place).

Sounds like you just accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This turns the screen on and off in photo mode to save batteries (you'd then use the optical viewfinder in its place). Just press the button one more time with the camera turned on.

Try this: Take a photo. The put it in "Play" mode to review the photo.Press the Menu button. You should see 3 tabs on the screen. Go to the 2nd tab that kind of looks like a piece of paper coming out of a printer. Scroll down to Print Settings and press the Func Set button. Scroll down to Date and change it to On.

My problem is I can't get it OFF! :-)

Click the "disp" button. The display of the camera has been turned off in the LCD screen but you can still use the viewfinder, this functionality is just for those who prefer to use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen.

The image is getting blurred


Hi

The camera may have moved when the picture was taken. Try steadily squeezing the button intead of a quick press.

2.Try using a tripod, this could fix the blurred images.

3. faster shutter speed will be needed if you need to hold the camera, and cannot use a tripod.

4. Main reason for the lines could be that the subject is to bright.
A vertical bar of light(red, purple) appears on the LCD monitor/ in the viewfinder This is a normal occurrence in devices containing CCDs (Digital Cameras) and does not mean a malfunction. (This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded when shooting
movies.)

Solution to the last point would be to try and switch of the flash if it is in use. Turn the ISO setting (50, 100, 200) to a lower one as well.

Hope that helps.
