Canon Z90W 35mm camera

I am on my second Z90W now, the first one having been replaced by the retailer as an act of good faith, (It was sent for repair to Canon UK but came back with a "no fault found" report). A couple of years after getting the replacement the second camera has now developed the same fault. Before I have used the full roll of film, the camera starts to rewind, it is intermittent and can happen at any part of the roll or ocassionally not at all. I have tried changing the battery a number of times but that does not seem to be the problem. I would appreciate if anyone out there can help to remedy the fault as the camera is now out of warranty and if I do pay for repair I may get the same response as the first time from Canon. Robert

SOURCE: Powers on, wont load film, beeps constantly, Can't select a mode,

I had a similar problem today with my camera. I'm not an expert on Cannon cameras or any cameras for that matter, but this is what I did to fix the problem.

I removed the bottom cover(has 6 screws i believe) carefully sliding the cover up starting near the battery cover. Holding the camera still I checked what gears I could to make sure they were free, but one small gear that moves up and down was stuck. I applied a very small amount of force to the gear to free it, reattached the cover and all the screws, and BAM! I was back to taking pictures.

Hopes this helps.

p.s if you can't find one of the screws its under the battery cover flap :).

The film switch that rewinds the film needs to be replaced

SOURCE: hello, just found my 35mm

Did you remember to push the rewind release button, on the bottom of the camera first? Failure to do so will either not allow you to rewind the film (without applying a lot more force than needed), rip off the film sprocket holes, damage the camera's internal gearing, or any number of other nasty things.

There should be a small button on the camera's bottom baseplate, press it in and it should rewind smoothly.

I sent my canon a85 for repair to my local camera repair shop. The problem was the ccd.the camera shop was unable to repair and sent it to canon .canon said repair shop had made a mess when putting camera...

It is a pity you did not visit the Canon Website for the FREE WORLD WIDE Recall you could have benefitted like I did also if the product is out of warranty. I bought mine in 2003 in Berkshire (RG12) and got repaired by Canon for FREE in Italy.
Read the link below for the instructions.
Today is not wort repairing the camera and if Canon were not able to do it blaming the shop I would ask the shop to replace a camera at least for half the price it is worth a new substitute. In the UK you have great offers from Jessops.

Line in middle of screen

Does the line show in the photos when you upload them to a pc? If so it's a faulty sensor. If not it's a faulty LCD display panel. Sensor faults like this don't always show in the electronic viewfinder as it has a lower resolution than the LCD screen.

Either way, unless you purchased your camera just as it was released you should still be covered by the manufacturer's one year warranty. If not then you're looking at a very expensive repair bill if it's the sensor and around £100 (still fairly expensive) if it's the LCD, but Canon are usually responsive to requests for goodwill repairs when faults as major as these occur just outside the warranty, especially when it's still a current model.

If you purchased the camera in the UK you'll have additional protection for up to six years (five in Scotland) under the Sale of Goods Act. Amongst other things, it says that retailers must supply goods which are of durable quality considering the price paid and intended use. A camera which cost around £350 new should arguably be expected to be able to take acceptable photos for at least four years, and you'd certainly expect items which do not affect the image quality such as LCD faults to last at least a couple of years. if the Act applies to your purchase, then you can claim against the retailer for either a refund (full, or a part refund to take into account beneficial use to date) or for a replacement (doesn't have to be new or even the same model.just one which substantially does what your current model should be able to do). In practice, it's usually best to approach the manufacturer first with costly faults like yours.

If your camera is still under warranty then I highly recommend Colchester Camera Repair Service if you're in the UK.

Shutter stops half way

The only official fix for this is to replace the entire shutter assembly.

It is possible that the present assembly just needs cleaning and lubrication, but that is not a DIY job. In practice, a new shutter assembly will be fully guaranteed and the labour involved in replacing it is usually less than that involved in fixing and then testing your current unit. It's also true that with many modern shutter assemblies a sticking shutter tends to be a recurrent issue even if it is initially fixed.

Contact Canon in your country to get a warranty repair; your camera may be just outside the warranty period if you're unlucky, but in the absence of water or shock (fall) damage this sort of fault indicates faulty parts, material or construction at the outset and you should press Canon for a goodwill repair if necessary. Your argument will carry more weight if you can tell them how many other Canon products you've owned over the years. Note that if you're in the UK then the Sale of Goods Act covers you for up to six years (five in Scotland) so if Canon refuse to play ball then you can claim against the retailer who supplied the camera. A semi-pro camera which cost around £750 when new would be reasonably expected to last far longer than a year and a bit and even arguably up to the full potential five/six years that the Act allows for.

DO NOT attempt any DIY repairs on this unit; if you do so then all warranties and Sale of Goods Act coverage is null and void. Note that the manufacturer warranty may not be valid if the camera has been used professionally: check the warranty for details.

Although there's no quick and easy fix here I hope that you've found my posting to be of use and in return ask that you take a moment to rate my answer. Good luck with resolving this issue promptly.

I have a kenwood sjm350 and it keeps stopping during the boil cycle, have to remove from mains and boil again 3 or 4 times to get boiling water

Either the boil thermostat is faulty or the protective overheat cut-off is operating prematurely.

There is nothing you can do to fix either problem: it's a cheap kettle (no better or worse than average) and definitely not designed to be repaired. If the kettle is still under warranty you can get it repaired (in practice, Kenwood will usually just replace it). If the kettle is out of warranty then all you can do is to bin it and buy a replacement.

Note that if you're in the UK then you'll also have Sale of Goods Act protection; this means it's your right to demand that the retailer gives you a refund (full or partial, depending upon how long the product has lasted) or replacement as the goods have proven not to be of durable quality. The Act covers you for up to six years (five in Scotland), but allows for the fact that you can't expect a £32 kettle (current typical retail price) to last much more than perhaps a year to eighteen months. In reality, most UK retailers will try to insist you use the manufacturers warranty as it's usually more convenient for all concerned but you do have the legal right to insist that the retailer provides the remedy.

I hope that you've found my reply to be of use and in return I ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Broken Canon camera

Take it to a camera repair shop to get a quote (the camera should be able to be sent to a repairer through any camera retailer).

When you have the quote - decide whether it is more economical to repair or replace.

Good luck.
