Hello mohd, This is a known bug with some digital cameras. The firmware gets corrupted and doesn't "remember" the position of the lens when it is forced to shut down because of not enought battery power. When you power the camera back on, it will relly on the latest settings for the lens, and since they were corrupted when the power was cut off suddenly, these kind of problems can occur. In order to fix this you will need to have the camera's firmware rewritten. Because your camera is new, I sugest you go to the shop where you bought it and ask for an in waranty repair. Don't try to write the firmware yourself because you may loose the waranty. However before sending it to a service, you can try to reset the camera. If your model doesn't have a reset swich or nothing is told about this in the user manual, you may reset it by removing battery and then pressing the power button for 2 min (keep it pressed). Then release it and press every button on the camera twice (including zoom buttons, shutter, menu knobs ..everything). Then reconect the battery and try to power it back again. If you need more info please post back. Good luck.

2yrs old. Went thru 3 sets of batteries to get 20 pictures. Dead again. What`s the story?

Sounds like you have a short in the wiring. This is repair shop stuff, or buy a new camera time. Usually, if it is a point and shoot , it is not worth sending for repair as you'll playas much as a new camera is worth. I would look for a new camera, personally. Good luck.

Does not autofocus

Assuming you've made sure the auto-focus is turned on on both the lens and the camera, remove the lens, turn off the camera. Remove the battery. Wait about a minute. Put the lens back on, turn the camera back on . It's a computer basically. Sometimes it crashes. I've had this happen to me a few times.

I have a canon eos 1000d and as i was shooting i turned on the noise reduction on and i think i manage to take another 3-4 shots after that.Then i realized for some reason the lens was properly focusing...

This is a long shot but you can try to remove the battery for a few minutes and that should "reset" your camera. Put the battery back in and see if it works, if not you can try calling Canon service at 1-800-652-2666 and they may be able to help you.
Good Luck!

Camera is DEAD...batteries ok How do I get film out

Go to the camera store and buy an old fashion film change bag so you can take the film out of the camera and roll the film back on the spool. The bag is light proof.

Using up batteries in two days

if you are using "AA" size, do NOT use typical alkalines in your camera, they die too fast. Buy rechargable NiMH batteries and a charger at Walmart or somewhere. These will hold a charge longer for you. Also be sure to turn off teh camera when not shooting because the camera is always draining battery life when "on."

I have just replaced the battery and tried to shoot a picture and the battery went dead!


camera circuit has a problem. if the camera had liquid damage it's not repairable.
if impact damage it may be repairable if not too damaged. about the only thing you can do is check the battery compartment and clean if necessary.

Slight blur shooting variety of subjects

It is just a possibility but you may have overrode the auto focus. If you accidentally move the focussing ring it disables the auto focus.

Digital Canon Rebel DS6041 - Auto focus does not working

allow to dry for an extended period. leave lens off, put in dust free area.
it may 'come back' after a few days of being open.
moisture can cause malfunctions. is sensor clean a liquid? or air?
air can be driven by a propellant which can cause problems.
try removing battery if it does not come back, or maybe before.
good luck, otherwise, time for service'
