My problem is that its not functioning properly it stays in "View Mode" instead of "Shoot Mode" all the time even when the switch is at "Shoot Mode" also the lens won't come out. At first I thought I needed new batteries but to no avail still not working. I tried turning it on and off again and again its still not working.
Help would be greatly appreciated.

Set the shooting mode to a Creative Zone mode. Press MENU to enter the menu. Under the Setup tab, select [Live View function settings] then press SET. Select [Live View shoot] and press SET. Select [Enable] and press SET. Press MENU to exit the menu. Press SET. The image should now appear on the LCD instead of through the viewfinder.
Refer to "Live View Shooting," Chapter 5 in the manual for more details and the limitations of the LiveView mode.
The A75 was a great camera, but after about a year of use, many complained of problems such as the one you describe (search on "Canon A75 Black Screen of Death" to see :-).
I believe that for a time Canon was offering replacements, but that was several years ago, so it is likely that this program is no longer available (might be worth a try at canon.com, but don't get your hopes up). The only good news is that you can get a much, much better version of this camera, the Canon A590 IS for just over $100.
Hi, Prepare to Live view shooting: 1. Set the lens focus mode (on the side of the lens) switch to <MF> 2. Set the shooting mode to a Creative Zone mode 3. In menu under the settings tab, select Live View function settings and then press <SET> 4. Turn with quick control dial to select Live View shoot and press <SET> 5. Turn with the control dial to select Enable and press <SET>
With the camera ready to shoot, press <SET> - image will appear on the screen in real-time
Use the audio-visual cable that came with your camera and connect your camera to your TV. Now turn-on your camera and switch to "view mode", e.g., to see a already taken picture on your LCD. You will not see anything on your LCD but may see an image on your TV, even if the image is "F18".
I used the above trick to clear an F18 error on an A75. Right now I am trying to get the camera to focus properly, but somehow the above cleared the F18 error.
If the above does not work, try connecting your camera to your computer's USB port using the other cable that came with the camera. Your camera will want to be on, and in the "view mode". I have read that this trick can reset an F18 error.
Good luck. At least it costs zero to try these two tips.
