Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera
When I turn on the camera, I see a black screen with several icons in white: a camera in the upper left corner, ISO?HI, a zig-zag arrow, a rectangle and a small camera with an arrow in the upper left corner, 102 in the bottom right corner and L, 1/4 of a circle and a rectangle with an eye in the center in the bottom left corner. After a minute, the screen goes black. I am able to scroll through the pictures I have already taken, but I can't take new pictures.
I turned mine on today and out of no where it worked?!

Very odd... sounds like the camera is just in a power save mode and should still work.
Try pressing the "Disp" button, does the LCD turn on? Press it again after a second.. does it all now turn off? Press it once more and the LCD should turn on again.
If this doesn't work, then one of two things is most likely wrong. Your CCD is bad, or the aperture in the lens is stuck closed. Either problem requires the lens to be replaced, and no camera shop or store will do it for less than $150-200.
If the aperture is stuck no light is getting in the lens so there is nothing for the camera to record, but you can still see the menus and old pictures just fine. If the CCD is bad, the light is getting in but the camera can't convert it to a digital signal that it can record.. so once again you can still see the menus and old pictures but you can't take any new ones.
I've been building an AFFORDABLE digital camera repair business (Google Darntoothysam) for several years now, I'm just trying to reach people I can help. We offer a lens replacement package for about $70 in our store, you won't find a price like that anywhere else!

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Amazingly, I have the same problem. And whats more.. Canon wont assume responsibility for it. Whats even worse is that since i bought the camera from Canada and now I am in India the warranty isn't valid even though the camera is hardly two month old.
