One year before I brought canon IXUS700 digital camera.
It was working fine till last week. Last week I suddently found that the zoom button is not working. I do not remember any dropping of the camera.
I can not use zoom button in any of the mode. All other functions are working fine.
Can anyone guide what should do to rectify this zoom button problem?
Thanks & Regards

Have you ever connected the camera to your computer for downloading and then disconnected it without using the "safely remove hardware" function? If so, you could have corrupted the camera. Try going into the menu and find "reset" to get back to factory default settings. Also, have you ever tried using a separate card reader for downloads? It's easier and faster and it's entirely possible that your missing pics will show up.
The camera has limited ability to zoom out. I believe you have a 3x optical zoom, and a 7 x digital zoom. Once you go beyond the optical zoom, the camera attempts to digitally render the zoom which can cause pixalation, or bluriness. This should never be an issue inside the optical zoom range as the image is going directly through the lens.
The ixus 700 is only specified to be compatible with SD memory cards (and MMC cards). The protocol for SD cards only covers up to 2MB. Cards of higher capacity are the SDHC (high capacity) protocol, but this protocol did not exist when the ixus 700 was introduced. As far as I can tell, there is no way to upgrade to be compatible with the newer protocol.
Digigtal Zoom is simply a method of cropping the image in the camera.
The optical Zoon actuates the Lens
This seems to have failed
Check custpmer support for a repair option
Not very hopeful I am afraid - New Camera may be best option
