Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Troubleshooting

Camera will not turn on

The camera shows no signs of life after pressing the power button.

Bad/Discharged Battery

The first thing to check if your camera won’t turn on is the state of your battery. It might be as simple as recharging your battery.

Dirty Terminals

There may be particles preventing a good connection between the camera and the battery. We suggest cleaning the terminals with a cotton swab.

Loose Connections

There may be a connection break in the internals of your camera. Open up your camera and check for any loose ribbon connections.

Faulty Camera

If none of these solutions work, you may need to have the camera repaired by Canon or another camera professional.

Function buttons are sticking or do not register

The function buttons next to LCD display not functioning.

Sticking Buttons

If liquids or dirt have spilled onto the camera, the contacts may be filled with particulate matter. Take the camera's back casing off and clean the contacts with a cotton swab.

Faulty Contact Unit

The unit that registers button input may have malfunctioned. Replace it using this guide.

Loose/Faulty Ribbon Connector

The connection from the contact unit to the motherboard may need replacing.

LCD display is not functioning correctly or won’t turn on

Camera indicates that it is on, but an abnormal image or nothing at all appears on the display.

No Image Displayed

Your display may be turned off. Try pressing the display button until the display turns on. If this does not work you may need to replace your LCD display.


The LCD may still display partial images, but we recommend you replace it to restore functionality.

Horizontal Lines Appear

This indicates that the LCD is damaged. Replace it using this guide.

LCD displays message “Memory Card Locked”, “No Memory Card”, or “Memory Card Error”.

Card is locked

Take out the memory card. The write/protect switch may be set to lock. Set it to unlock.

Bad Memory card

The memory card may be damaged. Try using another memory card.

Bad Connection

The ribbon connecting the flash unit to the motherboard might be disconnected or loose. Check to make sure these ribbons are connected properly.

I have same problem with wife's camera, never been dropped, infrequently used and extremely well cared for. When first turned on it appears to focus correctly then immediately adjusts to out of focus. Driving me crazier than normal
