Canon Powershot SD750... battery or camera problem??

Okay, sometimes the camera won't turn on, and i have to take the battery out and put it back in, and then it will turn on, but then if the camera is tapped on the body or something it just turns off. i think it might be the battery, because I JUST got this camera back from warranty repair. Also, when the battery is charged, it still sometimes shows up as "almost dead" with the red blinking in the corner of the screen... I don't know if I should get a new battery or if it's just the camera again, but i just got this back from repair, so in my mind it should have been fixed. BTW, i had the camera at the beach, and i got some sand on it, but i was very careful with it and it was still working after that... it started acting weird after i charged the battery later that night... what should i do?

Try to clean the battery terminal inside the battery compartment, use barbecue stick with cotton buds with little drops of alcohol and rub the terminals. Also check the terminal spring, maybe it is loose or not pressing the battery enough.

Dropped SD750 on floor, now won't turn on

That's a hard one to analyze through email. A camera tech would have to use test equipment on it to see if the power section got shorted when the door opened when it hit the floor. It may not be a cheap or easy fix, but only a tech can tell. I have heard of cameras getting damaged, just from putting batteries in backwards, so a short circuit might have damaged a chip inside. Of course a warranty does not cover dropped cameras, but you might want to have them look at it and tell you what it will cost.

Display not open [I X U S 70]

There is small switch under the battery lid near by the battery. Use a tooth stick to press the switch down and turn on the unit. If the unit won’t turn on you need a new main board.

Canon SD750 does not turn on. Battery is fully recharged and tested on another camera. Just no power to this camera.

Your problem is the fuse on the main board or the battery door switch. if you cannot repair we do it for 85.00

Canon powershot SD750 will not turn on.

There are several things that could cause this. 

1- Check the battery door indicator switch under the battery door and beside the memory card slot. Is the little black switch damaged or missing? Try pressing down gently using a pen it with the door open and then press the power button. Does it turn on?

2- The fuse has blown and needs to be replaced. Offhand I don't recall where it is on the SD750 PCB or how hard it is to solder on a new one (depends on if its tricky to get at or not). Good thing is fuses are really cheap.

3- Other power problem with the PCB due to corrosion or impact damage. The PCB or 'motherboard' of the camera will need to be replaced.

If purchased less than 30 days ago, take it back to the store for a replacement. If the store can't help you, Canon should then help you under your warranty. If Canon won't help, try these as a last resort:
