Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
On turn on lens now doesn't move. always stays in replay mode regardless of switch position. tried a spare rear switch pcb and rear cover - same problem. Helppppppp! any actual repair advice (inlc. diagrams if available) will be very appreciated. I'm quite technical-wise. Thanks for your consideration, Gerry.
Gerry, The mode switch is a very common problem that causes the camera to remain in either play or camera mode. The stem breaks off the top of the switch and no longer functions. If this is not the case, the flex harness (operations unit) can get torn on top if the camera has been dropped. If the switch appears to be good, check for ground switching between the two outer legs of the switch, the micro gets a low signal from the mode switch to determine what state the cameras in. Good luck, this is a nice camera! Joe Weibel Custom Electronics (customelectroncis.org)
