Canon Powershot SD850 won't focus

Not a solution, I'm afraid. Everyone who bought this camera is regretting it for this very reason. It's a design fault, but Canon are not admitting to it.

Can't download images to computer using Canon Powershot SD850 IS

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

How to make a black

See the instructions in the "Shooting in a My Colors Mode" section of the manual (page 62 in my copy). Among your choices are "B/W" for black&white and "Sepia" for an old-fashioned brown-tinted look.

If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

Images are blurry, fuzzy

Good day,

I have heard a lot of complaints about people taking Blurry Photos.

There are a few possibilities for it and a few easy fixes.

The first possibility I would identify is a dirty lens. To fix this simply take a clean microfiber cloth and gently clean the lens until there are no smudges visible.

The other possibility I would identify is that the pictures are out of focus.
This problem can be caused by a dirty lens or because the object or person was not focused on. To ensure focus on your photos, line up your shot and wait for the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button half way down. When focused press the shutter button in all the way and hold the camera still until the photo appears on the screen. By doing this you will eliminate any motion that might mess up your shot.

Please let me know if these tips work for you!

Regards

Camera not working

i have the same camera as you do and from what expert told me, i have to ship it to Canon or it's authorized dealer for repair. The repair costs about $100 dollars.

In my opinion, it's a rip off!!! :S

Canon ixus 950 shutter stuck half open . when turn

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Canon PowerShot SD850 IS all buttons are locked

I believe this is normal, that is that you can only do one thing at a time, you may have slow memory, getting faster may help speed things up.

Card is locked

There is a small lock switch on the side of the memory card, slide it to the other position and try again.

1. Turn the camera off
2. take the memory card out
3. slide the lock slider to the other position
4. place the card back in to the camera
5. turn on the camera.

if the problem remains repeat steps 1 to 5.

if the problem still remains its now obvious the issue is not with the memory card, you may try another card on the camera if you wish.

The most likely cause for this issue is in the memory card reader of the camera. there is a small lever/switch on the side of the card reader that detects if the card is locked or unlocked. You would have to take the camera apart and pull the stuck lock "detector"/switch up so that it doesn't touch the the metal.
