Question about Canon PowerShot SX160 IS Digital Camera
All other functions seem to work.
Please check if yu did set the camera in AF mode continuous. In that mode, the camera is focusing on whatever is aimed at. Even when the shutter button is not pressed, allowing you to shoot without missing opportunities.
The mode where you see the camera focus when the button is pressed half way, is called single. This setting will conserve battery power.
Look in the manual under Switching between Focus Settings. I can't tell you war page that is for your camera, in mine it is page 100.
On the last pages in the book are all settings for each shooting mode.

If you check page 45 in the manual, you'll see that the orange light during the half press indicates that the flash is turned on. A single beep means that the camera is having difficulty getting a "focus lock" (usually when shooting in low light conditions). See page 100 of the manual for suggestions on how to improve the chances for getting a well-focused picture.

SOURCE: Shutter don't stop halfway
Yes, there is a small 2-stage micro switch that needs to be replaced. 1st stage is permanently pressed and not switching/returning back due to so many time it's been pressed.
It just time. Switch is right under top cover.

SOURCE: Auto focus problem
If you set the camera on "manual", it assumes you focused manually and allows you to press the shutter without having to stop half-way. Check your settings.
