You really can't....however, there is a very small chance that it might work but you need patience though. First you need to take the battery and the casing off in order to expose the circuit board. Secondly if you can find a dehumidifier, you should run the dehumidifier and place the camera in front of it for 72hrs with no interuptions. Lastly, put the camera back together. Hope this will help. If not, the circuit board has short circuited itself and there is no possible way to replace any components.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. 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 the following two links for more info:

Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/300/400/430/500, IXY Digital 200a/300a/400/450/500

SOURCE: my canon powershot SD1100 IS camera lcd screen

You may have just accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. Press the DISP button once with the camera turned on to see if that corrects the problem. If this doesn't correct it...

A stuck 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, 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.

SOURCE: hi, i have a canon powershot sd1100 is digital

On the website you should be able to find all the drivers and software for your operating system and the camera as well.
But, if you want to avoid all that, use a card reader to view and copy the files to you computer, no matter what kind of computer you have. All newer operating systems will detect the card reader as a mass storage device.
Hope it works.

Depending on your OS, you can download the latest driver for your system directly from Canon here. Remember to select your OS in the dropdown tab to be able to see the available downloads.

But I'd also recommend that you take this as an opportunity to consider utilizing a much safer method of downloading your pictures and videos. Please see this link, as it describes the use of a USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive these days (some places less than $2 online with shipping).

My camer's lens is not going back in, and it's

Make like Michael Jackson and Beat it!

A bit of tiny grit can catch and stop the lens mechanism. Tapping the camera on the body or thumping it somewhat firmly & delicatelyonto a padded flat urface may help. Run a vacuum near the len and cycle it a few times after it works.
Beating these cameras is a strangely common technique.

My Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS says it has a lense error. It tells me to restart it so I do and it keeps telling me the same thing.

Your problem is your lens. Your lens could be blocked from getting out the right way when it starts up. Thats usually the case. And so if it comes out the way it should (or seems that way) The gearing in the lens is being faulty. I have the same series camera (Canon PowerShot SD780 IS) and thats what happened to me. Try calling a camera fixing company to see how much it would be to fix it because it seems like a bigger issue. Or if its still under warranty, file a claim and send it back.

Canon Powershot; "lense error restart camera" Cannot take pictures due to error. Lense seems to work OK mechanically on start up but has an internal issue causing error.

try these:-
  • connect it to pc and on it
  • vaccum the barrel of lens
  • changing mem. card and batt. for 2min.
  • shake it.
  • on and off in different positions
  • hit the part near lens softly with palm (trust me this made mine work)
