Hi andresen_3,

In order to reset the camera settings to its default values you need to do the following:

1. Press the MENU button
2. Use the left or right arrow keys to select the Settings menu (its icon looks like a wrench and hammer)
3. Use the up or down arrow keys to scroll to the choice that says "Reset ALL..."
4. Press the "Func./Set" button to confirm your choice.
This will reset the camera to its factory default settings

Hope it helps.

Thank You for using Fixya

Canon IXUS 100IS - 'Lens error, restart camera' message

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:


Lens error

Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the zoom lens......

Language display problem

Make sure the camera is in playback mode (not shooting mode).

1. Press and hold the Func/Set button, then press Menu button.
2. Use arrows to select desired language.
3. Press Func/Set button.

Sounds like you (inadvertently?) had the Color Accent Mode turned on (an icon which shows an eyedropper with an A next to it), which is available on the same menu where you select Manual Mode.

When you press the Func/Set button, with the icon in the top left corner highlighted, along the bottom you will see the options available, including the Color Accent Mode, any of which are selectable by using the left/right arrows and pressing the Func/Set button again.

How do you use the continuous shoot function on canon ixus 70?

These instructions are for the IXUS 70, even though the category is PowerShot SD500/IXUS 700.

1. Press the down arrow (bottom of main control button)
2. Press the up or down button until you see the icon for continuous shooting, which looks like three squares overlaid on each other.
3. Shoot your pictures. As long as you keep the shutter button depressed, the camera will continue to shoot until the memory card is full.

To return to single frame shooting, follow steps 1. and 2. but select the single square in step 2.
