Question about Canon PowerShot SD780 IS / IXUS 100 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

We have a SD780IS since Jan 2010 which was fine. However in recent weeks, it is not focussing correctly and when we take photos, they are out of focus.

    Thanks, Lee. I just wanted to check that there were no settings that we might have inadvertantly set on or off. Bob

Being that the camera is under warranty, and assuming you have already done basic troubleshooting I would have it repaired/replaced under warranty by contacting canon directly at this link:

My LG KS360 phone has developed a date fault since 1 Jan 2011 whereby it is saying 32/83/2010. I cannot fix it. Please advise.


Noticed the same problem today. The "set date" option wouldn't let me reset the day, month or year to anything sensible. Changed the date format to MM/DD/YYYY (it was previously DD/MM/YYYY). Then it let me set correct month, day and year. Reset the date format back to DD/MM/YYYY and it's still correct (and will now let me change it while in this format). Don't understand it, but seems to have fixed the problem. (Guessing it was something to do with 2009 changing to 2010??). worked for 2011 also.

My camera will not focus. I have a 50mm lens and 200mm and neither will focus


Which exact lenses are you trying to use? The N2000 (aka F301) is a manual focus camera so if you're trying to use autofocus lenses you have to focus them manually. Sorry if this seems an insulting suggestion, but you did state "my camera will not focus" and I've learned that on FixYa it's best not to assume any prior level of knowledge with regard to those who post questions.

The next thing to check is whether the viewfinder has an eyecup attached, if so slide it upwards to remove it as sometimes they have a corrective lens fitted if the previous user needed corrective optics. If your vision is fine (with glasses/contact lenses if necessary) then a corrective lens on the viewfinder may make things look blurry.

Other than that, the only other possible cause (other than a pair of broken lenses) is if the focussing screen has become dislodged downwards (or somehow fitted upside-down) then the viewfinder image will be unsharp. Officially the F301/N2000 had a fixed focussing screen but it could be replaced with one of three designed for the higher specified F501 (which does have autofocus), and if not seated correctly you'd get the focussing issue you describe.

You can test if the focussing screen is the problem in one of two ways:-
1. A visual inspection (you may need to get a more experienced photographer to take a look at it);

2. Set the lens to focus at infinity and at the widest possible aperture and take a photograph of a distant object (ignoring the blurred viewfinder). process the film and inspect the photo. If it's sharp then you have a focussing screen problem. If not, then it's a lens problem.

If the problem is a poorly fitted focussing screen then it may just need reseating or to be removed and refitted. It's vital to do this in a dust free environment and to avoid getting fingerprints on the screen. Some screens sit in a hinged frame which then clips into place when pushed up, others push into a pair of clips towards the top rear and then the front is held in place by a spring clip: it's been a long while since I worked on the F501 or F301 so I don't recall which system is used.

I solved the problem, by tipping the dishwasher back about 45degrees, I think this re-adjusted the flood sensor, and it is now working fine. Thank you

Repairing negetives


This is a tricky process. You will needa soft cloth and some rubbing alcohol and a ventilated area. Use the alcohol on the cloth to GENTLY rub at the mould without rubbing the negative away. The same can be done for pictures that have gotten mouldy over the years. I have used this on some of my slides that had been attack by mould and was somewhat successful, but did not completey remove the mould. I was able to complete the job with my photo editing program.

Unfortunately, a blury negative cannot really be refocussed. To some extent (very limited) you can try to use the sharpening tool in some photo editing software to give bluriness a more focussed appearance. But it is a subjective decision.

MMS PICS DONT SHOW UP


I started having the same problem about 2 weeks ago. Found out that my photo went to my photo album online because whatever was sent was too large for the phone. I went in and went to the recent photos and there it was. Carrier doesn't know either. I also went to the Browser, menu, options and browser configuration and checked the appropriate boxes to allow certain media files.

I was having the same problem with my D40... but I read your post, tried switching the 18-55 lens to manual, then back to auto, and it seems to be working fine now. Hmmmm... think maybe there's a circuitry issue with the lens?
