Contact the makers customer support.
The likely cost of repair however will be near the cost of simply replacing the camera.

I was taking picture and they coming out fine. and then all of a sudden the pictures started coming out messed up. I think there is something wrong with the focus. any ideas?


Could be a lens error or display error. The latter can be tested by viewing the pictures on a PC or Mac. Lens errors in a Canon are tricky and usually of mechanical nature - such as a grain of sand in the mechanism. Let the lense expand / contract a few times to test it.

I cannot turn off camera. Lense error appears.


you must have dropped or banged the camera,same thing just happened to me. i'v done some looking on the internet and it seems we have to bring the camera to a repair shop,but get a quote for the repair because one site advised just to buy a new one as its very expensive to fix. i'm going to get a quote and 1st for the work,just incase.

Flash Does not work. canon sd1000


This happened to my SD1000 and I followed the step by step instructions shown here:
http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Replacing+Canon+PowerShot+SD1000+Broken+Flash+Unit/7778/1

and when I got to step 15, I found that the small plug that connects the flash to the camera body had been disconnected when the camera had been dropped. I simply pressed the connection back in tight and reassembled the camera - and it works. Maybe this happened to yours too??

Sounds like you need a new camera. Canon's repair centres are not cheap!

Canon SD1000 blurred pictures and blurred LCD, Camera wont focus! please help ive had it for 2 weeks


The best chance to use your SD1000 is to set to picture, push ISO (on top of the func. set ring) and set to hi. This works pretty well. Do not bother sending any camera to Canon, they charge the "standard charge" plus for all their manufacturing problems on all Canon cameras. Definately the worst customer service on the market.
