Question about Canon PowerShot SD30 / IXUS i Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Powershot SD30 taking blurry pics.

I've had my camera for 3-4 years and it has just started taking really blurry pictures. There are no warnings on the screen and it doesn't say I need a new battery. Was wondering if somebody knows what's wrong.

Dust could have gotten insode making the focus lens to stick.

you might have to take it to a camera shop for a good cleaning.

dusty places are always bad for electronics.

but sounds like the focus lens is failing, there might be an option to clean the lens electroniclly, most canon has the option. not sure about sony.

good luck

Camera taking bad pictures, looks good through the viewfinder but not when i go to look at them. They come out very poor quality.


To be honest the cost of repairing this camera may well be more than a new one. You can buy this camera on Amazon for £67.

Blurry picture if zoom is used ( no Sharp mage)


I'm out of practice because my camera suddenly stopped working 6 months ago, but I don't recall having a problem with blurry pictures when I used the zoom. Sometimes, it takes a few seconds for a pic to come into clear focus. I think the trick is to just keep working with it.

Blurry pictures


wipe off the lense with a clothe or something, that might be the problem. Or if you move the cam too much when you are trying to take a pic, that also mighht be the problem. If not, I have no idea.

Sorry to say this sounds like a stuck open shutter mechanism. Put the camera in any mode other than auto and make certain that you turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself in the following step). Next look down the center of the lens barrel and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker (wonder where that website got that name?) in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen then it's likely stuck.

Some people have had success in unsticking Canon S2 IS shutters with the following procedures. It may or may not work for you:

The lens assembly needs a repair service.

Either it as internal damaged parts, or a moving part got stuck.

This mean a professional repair service for it.

The cost of it may be $120.00 or more in most camera repair centers.

I have same problem. I turn on the camera you hear it trying to come on, shows display pic for like 3 seconds and then shuts down. If I could get the lens to retract I am sure the camera would work.

Then it sounds like there may be an error with your CCD (what comverts the light going into your camera into a digital picture, like digital film). even if your warranty is expired canon may still repair this for free. Contact canon at 1-800-OK-CANON and explain to them the problem and that you think the CCD may be defective.

Everything is blurry and out of focus


error code e18 means that the focus motor gears a jammed, dirt or grain of sand in them. you can try to fix it by gently banging the camera on somthing soft, their are also instructions on web on how to disasemble and fix this fault. BUT unless you have some skills, the right tools and conditions i would not attempt it. leave it to the experts
