Question about Canon Powershot SD450 / IXUS 55 Digital Camera
After pressing the on button when in camera mode (the lens is currently in the extended position), the camera buzzes briefly, the LCD screen does not activate, the lens does not retract and the camera shuts down. When in playback mode the camera buzzes briefly, the Canon chirping bird appears and chirps then the screen and the camera shuts down. I have changed the battery and memory card with no change in the problem. The camera has not been dropped and is in very good condition. It was purchased new in 6/06.
Again the same old compact camera zoom lens problems - sand in lens, stuck AF motor, chewed up plastic gears...you only have to look at them wrong and they will die... (A very cynical camera repairer that has tried to repair these damn things soo often!!) Even cameras with internal lenses like the old Nikon 950/990/4500 still have troubles with stuck motors and broken lens parts. I despair - these things are just made to last the guarantee out (if that long) and die horribly afterwards!!
