Green Light Won't Turn Off

I can't get the green light on the front of my canon powershot G7 to turn off. I believe it is the AF assist beam. What's wrong?

    I have exactly the same problem with my G9 camera. Even though I select the AF Assist beam in the menu and turn it off the beam still comes on. My 1 year old grandson now squints everytime I point my camera at him and there's nothing I can do to prevent it!

Why is my led screen blurry in low light before I take a picture?

It sounds like your camera settings have the( AF Assist Beam) on Off? That is the Amber Color light you see when you half press the shutter button. If that setting is set to OFF, then the camera can not focus in low light giving you blurry pictures as it can not see any light to assist the camera on focusing. If you turn on the (AF Assist Beam) to on, they when you press the shutter button half ways down you will see a Reddish/ Amber light, that light helps the camera find a focus point, giving you a slightly better low light photo.
