Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
I borrowed a friends Canon A75 to take some pictures but the problem is that it doenst go to the camera mode: It always stays at the preview mode. This happens even when the knob is placed at the 'Camera' mode and not the 'Preview' mode. Any idea why it is such ? I think the camera is some one year old.

Thank you for replying but I did mention that the switch itself wasnt working as it should. I did solve the problem though a little risky for some. I loosened all the screws from the back side and lightly raised the plastic part. I then carefully cleaned the metal contact and the switch spring with a cotton bud using some medical spirit. Put everything back and it has been working all right ever since. The problem was the contacts had gone a little 'dirty'. My advise to people having the same problem is to go to the closest Canon repair center and hint them about the problem and the probable solution.

There is a slide switch on the back of the camera, near the top right corner of the LCD screen. You apparently have it setting on the icon that looks like a triangle. Slide it up to the icon that looks like a camera.
