Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My flash has stopped working

Please help. I am in Vietnam, half way through a 4 month trip and my camera (only just over 1 year old) has stopped working when the flash is required. If I take a normal picture- without the flash it works, however if the flash is required it focuses but it just won't capture, the flash symbol is flashing in the top right hand corner.

Please help I have many more photo opportunities to come and I want it to work properly!

please contact racheee3000@hotmail.co.uk

thanks

Hi

Unfortunately you will either need to replace the flash unit... or if you're unlucky the main PCB. I don't think you will be able to do anything without either of those parts.

I have made my living running a digital camera repair business for several years now, wish I had better news for you about your camera. If we can help with the repair let us know.

Good luck: Darntoothysam com

I have a Canon PowerShot A530 camera which is around 4 years old. till recently it was working great but from last 3 months, it is giving false indication of low batteries and shuts down. Even after full...


if you are using this camera for 4 yrs with the same lithium battery then you might need to try a new battery
any lithium battery cell's capacity diminishes after long use. it reduces the cell's ability to deliver current. the older batteries do not charge as much as new one.
when you charge your battery it irreversibly loses approximately 20% capacity per year.
hope this help

Hi,
I have the same problem with my 1 month old EOS 1000D.
I tried cleaning the lens contacts, but the problem was not solved.

ERR 99 is a generic error. I think this is a common message for a lot of malfunctions.

Try the following steps.

1. Remove the lens and try some clicks.
If you still have the problem then it may not be the fault with lens or contacts.<go for step -2>
If u still have, you have to get it repaired by professionals.

2. Remove the memmory card and try some clicks..(without Card)
Hopefuly u will find it working...
Format your Memmory card & reinstate.

For me the 2nd option worked...(for now !!)

Taking pictures


First look on the back and with the camera on press the DISP or DISPLAY button. If you still have a problem after doing this, then it needs to be repaired. You mention the camera is only 4 months old, and is thus still under warranty. Call 1-800-828-4040 or 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666) to have it repaired for free under its warranty. And here's its warranty:
