My A40 is having some problems. The only button that works on the back of the camera is the power. I can take pictures, but I can't change any setting (including zoom). The Mode Dial still works, so I can switch between modes, but still can't change settings. One other odd thing is that after taking a picture, the camera goes to full zoom and I can't un-zoom without turning the camera on and off.

I can connect to the camera via the Remote Capture Utility that came with my software. I am able to change all of the settings in Remote Capture.

I'm wondering whether or not anyone else has had similar problems. This camera is a couple of years old. I don't plan on spending any money to get it fixed unless it's cheap. Does anyone know how I can diagnose my problem without sending the camera to Canon or taking it to a repair shop?

Thanks
