Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

Hey, it's Emery again.

I tried your battery theory. One of my close friends has the same camera and I tried using her battery, but the camera still won't work. It won't show any signs of life.

I dont know what your first thread said or what the answer was, but normally no-power has nothing to do with the battery, though trying another known good battery is the first step.

There is a small switch under the battery door beside the memory card slot. Is this switch damaged or missing? If so the camera will not turn on.

Your other most likely problem is the fuse, if its burned out it needs to be replaced. You will need to solder a new fuse in, it's really not extremely hard if you know how to solder and the fuse is cheap to buy new.

Good luck, let me know if you need more help.

    Well in this case "DeviliveD", what's wrong with repairing a camera yourself if you know how to do it instead of overpaying somebody else to do it for you?

    I forgot to mention that you should check the switch inside the battery compartment beside the memory card slot... if that switch is damaged the camera will not turn on. Try pressing it down with a pencil and turning the camera on, does that work? Is the switch damaged, is it missing? Its a small black switch, without it.. no power.

    Don't EVER pay somebody $150 to fix a digital camera problem like this, you're getting RIPPED OFF. Even if you don't use my services, everybody needs to stop paying such high prices!

    It's like the brakes on your car. My local service station wants $375 to do my rear brakes on my truck, I can buy the parts myself for $125. Do they really need to charge me $250 labor to replace my brakes??

    Emery... Your camera either needs the fuse replaced or the entire PCB can be replaced, that will probably solve the no power problem. You can try buying a defective camera online and using the parts to make one good camera, or if you want a PCB I'm certain I can supply you with one.

    Pass the word around people... you don't have to pay hundreds of dollars to fix your camera even if some 'geek' (who actually knows nothing about repairing cameras) tells you so.

Camera keep on displating

OK try using some steel wool or emery paper (fine) on the terminals inside the batteryy compartement. I suspect there is some sort of corrosion or substance causing poor connection.
Hold the camera so no swarf gets retained in the battery compaertment. Wipe the area clean after rubbing contacts

Lens does not close anymore -

When you opened it the cog connected to the motor which opens and closes the lens probably shifted and no longer has traction against the ring around the inside of the lens which turns it to open and close it. If you open the camera up again be extremely careful - the lens has loads of springs inside it - lose one of these and it won't work properly. I opened up the whole thing to try and fix my lens which had been jammed in after a friend dropped it. I fixed the lens but couldn't put the damn thing back together again to many tiny parts and no guide to the jigsaw!!

Battery and card door slide is stuck closed

Hey marmof,
I would have it looked at by an authorized service center in your local area, and of course you can always bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and have them look at it. I would not try forcing it open as this could cause additional damage to the camera.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

DSC-W80 zoom extends, shutter opens, closes, zoom closes, 5x, won't work

Hey kbcinc,
I would try taking the battery out and waiting a minute and then reinserting the battery. Another option you have is to try and reinitialize the camera, but you would need access to the settings menu on the camera and it doesen't sound like you do. To initialize the camera go to main settings 1 and choose initialize. If this doesn't work I would bring it to an authorized service center to have it looked at.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

"Reinsert the Cassette"

If the warranty is no longer valid, try to identify what part of the camera is being scraped, then gently bend it back into place. There are a lot of thin metal shields inside the camera that could easily have been dented. I would strongly suggest a repair, as it is a very simple problem that can be easily fixed by moderately skilled hands.

Usually when I got that error message, I would take out the cassette, close it up, take off the battery, and smack it really hard a couple of times. It sounds odd, but it comes from a sony technician. It's the perfect temporary fix.

Everytime I try to take a picture my cam turns off

That happens to me once in a while...Just when I feel like throwing in the towel, it starts working again! But I am actually having a problem right now: Even with fully charged batteries, the camera goes into "low battery" mode when I turn it on, and right now I can't download some really important pics...ARGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!
