Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

How get parts or repair canon a75 ccd, for non USA residents

I have a Powershot a75 since November 2004. Now when I try to take a picture or take some video I just see a distorted pink image. Where I live, Dominican Republic, we do not have a canon service center. I went to a generic service center to check the camera, they just see it, and they told me it was a ccd problem. They estimated the camera repair about 155 dollars, 108 for new ccd and 47 for the service repair. I think this is too expensive. I can buy a new camera with accesories for less than that. What can I do? Can I buy the ccd replacement? Do you know the specification of this part and where can I buy it? Is it cost effective to send the camera to USA service center or another canon service center in Latin America? I will appreciate any help I can receive.

Contact Canon. I had the same problem and eventhough it was outside of warranty they fixed it for free because they recognized this as one of their own problems with the camera. Unfortunately I have the problem again. So I am going to see if Canon will fix it again for me. Good luck!

CCD sensor


This is such a specific request, I'll assume you know what you are doing ..... the ccd sensor is quite a difficult part to change.

From my perspective, best option would be to find a donor body thats defective in a different way. There are lots on eBay ....

One thing you might consider is buying a reasonable secondhand one - again from eBay they are less than $50 ......

Finally, Canon had a recall on the A75 for bad sensor problems - I'm not sure if you qualify, but .....
