My Canon Ixus 750 autofocus has become faulty. It does not

This answer was rated:

My Canon Ixus 750 autofocus has become faulty. It does not show the green focussing frame(s) and the lower of the two lights to left of viewfinder flashes. Pics come out blurred.
It may work occasionally but the pic tends to be out of focus. I have had the camera for about 10 years. Is it 'dead'? .......or is there a fix?

Hi Peter. Welcome to justanswer.

Try resetting the camera to Factory Default.

Select (Setup) Menu. You will see Reset All. Press Ok and then press Func Set button.

Reply if you have any difficulty in following the instructions.

No, thanks. Reset doesn't cure the issue. Seems I may have reached the 'beyond economic repair ' point. Thanks for your time anyway.

Have you tried changing the focusing mode?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It makes no difference.

Then the fault is with the camera lens. It would require repair or you can buy a new one instead of investing money on this.

Is there anything else I can help you with?

It looks as if it has died. I feared as much. Thank you for confirming it. At least I know it isn't just me. I appreciate your help.

Thanks for the ratings. I am glad that I could help you out. Cheers!
