Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pictures are coming out blurry sometimes depending on zoom

2 month old SD/750 camera suddenly stopped providing consistently clear, focused pictures. I took a bunch of pictures today trying to test and really come up with specifics, took indoor pictures of my dog using flash, then outdoors of my car and my patio furniture. More so than not for all three subjects, more pictures are blurry when camera is not zoomed in at all. Once I zoom in- even slightly, the focus improves. But, if I zoom too much, quality seems to get blurry again.

    Fixxmaster, yes, I have cleaned the lens thoroughly with scratch free cloth.

    Have also reset all settings, to ensure I had not pressed something accidentally.

    My Cannon PowerShot SD750 LCD screen does not show any images when in camera mode to take a picture. The screen remains black and no image shows or when picture is taken does not show the picture. Any advice?

    I have had this camera for about 5 months now. It was taking great pictures for the first 4 months but now it will not focus on anything. It seems to be getting progressivly worse. It used to be 1 out of three pictures were blurry, but last night, I could not get a single clear shot. I have tried playing with all the settings and nothing seems to help. To my knowledge the camera has not been dropped or damaged. Canon's website gives a list of 4 options for fixing the problem with the #1 answere being sending it in for repairs. Is this common for this camera? I have been very loyal to Canon in the past but this is turing into a bad experiece. Hope someone can help- Thanks

Blurry picture if zoom is used ( no Sharp mage)


I'm out of practice because my camera suddenly stopped working 6 months ago, but I don't recall having a problem with blurry pictures when I used the zoom. Sometimes, it takes a few seconds for a pic to come into clear focus. I think the trick is to just keep working with it.

I have a Kodak M1033 camera that I bought just over 6 months ago. I took it on holiday it worked fine and then suddenly it switched off. Since then it only powers up for about 5 seconds, shows a unfoc


I'm not sure why this works for me, but I think it's worth a try:

1) First, take your SD card out of the camera.

2) Then turn on your camera and let it turn itself off.

3) Read the next step first and be ready to press the shutter release button (take a picture) right after the LCD screen turns on

4) With the camera lens pointed down towards the floor (aim down), turn on the camera. At this point the LCD screen should not be blurry anymore. Immediately press the shutter release after confirming that the LCD is not blurry. If the camera stays on and you can review the picture (most likely of your feet), then you are almost done.

5) Turn off the camera and re-insert your SD card.

5) This may not be a permanent fix, but point the camera lens downward whenever you turn on the camera. It should work normally if you do this. Mine worked normally (meaning I don't have to point it downward when I turn it on) after doing this several times. Your results may vary.

Cannon EOS Rebel XS shows busy display stopped working


Just got a brand new camera. Played around with it a few nights to learn all the parts and buttons. Went to a concert tonite. While waiting for the show I took many test shots to see how the camera would work under these contiditions. Used a 75 to 300 Cannon lens. I had just got the settings about right when the show started. All of a sudden the display went dark and "busy" flashed in the view finder. But it would not take any more pictures. Taking the battery out and removing the sd card did not help. The auto focus and flash still worked but nothing else.
This camera is going back to the store if I can't get some help. PLEASE............. vj

I have a canon sd 750 have been using it for 4 months now, but yesterday the screen went black i can see the old picturs i took but cant take any new pictures all the new pictures i take are black the LCD...


YOUR PROBLEM MAY BE SIMPLE. IF YOU ARE USING THE ORIGINAL MEMORY CARD THAT CAN INSTALLED IN YOUR CAMERA THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THIS CARD IS JUST FULL AND HAS NO ROOM FOR ANY OTHER PICTURES. THE STANDARD CARD FOR THE SD-750 IS A 32MB-SD MEMORY CARD THAT WILL HOLD APRX. 20 PICTURES AT A NORMAL JPEG 3072 X 1728 MPIXEL RATING. YOU MIGHT TRY EITHER DOWNLOADING THE ONBOARD PICTURES TO CLEAR THE MEMORY, OR INSTALL A NEW HIGHER CAPACITY SD CARD. I WOULD RECOMMEND A 4 GIG CARD. THIS SHOULD TAKE CARE OF YOUR PROBLEM. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, PLEASE REPLY TO ARCLIGHT 1217. GOOD LUCK! IT THIS IS HELPFUL, PLEASE VOTE! THANKS!

Kodak Easy Share M763 Won't turn on!!


Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:
