Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Water behind lens of Canon Powershot

I just dropped the lens portion of my Powershot 890 IS as I looked straight down at a cup of tea I was photographing. There are spots behind the lens. It is extended and the battery is out so it will stay that way. Is there any way I can help it dry? Can it be repaired if the spots persist?
Thank you,
Karen
Note-this specific camera was not on the dropdown list. I chose what I think might be close.

If you can see condensation, then please do not switch on the camera.

Let it dry off. You could mildly use a blower(hair dryer) to dry , but not very powerful.

Once the condensation is dried, then if light spot remain and does not interfere in the quality of the photgraphs, it might go away in time. But if it is bothering you. Then you better take it to the nearest Canon service center, who will open and service your camera.

Best of luck.

How do i replace lense cover on a canon sx170 is?


Since I cannot see your pieces, I can recommend actual replacement. You can Google your camera's make/model with replace lens cover and pick from the listings. You can also go straight to Canon USA and search their store as they have replacement lens covers. I did this here for another customer as an example.

Crooked camera lens


Camera got dropped, lens got pushed in on one side? If you can straighten it yourself by pulling it out straight on that side, it might work perfectly afterwards.

Dropped Canon PowerShot into salt water


You're not going to like my answer. Salt water is very corrosive. Once it gets into a camera, even if you allow the moisture to dry out, will continue to corrode the camera and lens elements. Repair shops will not even touch a camera that has been dropped in salt water.

Canon Powershot S2 IS Disassemly guide?


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it without disassembly. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Canon SD 850 says lens error,


There could be a number of reasons for the lens error. ie. . sand in camera, impact damage etc. Typically the lens can be dissasembled and repaired by a competent camera repair technician. If you are certain that you did not damage the camera in any way I would send it back to canon for a warranty repair. If you however think you could have damaged it you are probably looking at around $100 to repair the camera. Hope this helps!
