Question about Canon PowerShot SD100 / IXUS II Digital Camera

Canon digital camera A75 fault no CCD image

I see there is a known fault admitted by Canon re the CCD connection failing in humid weather conditions. I live at the coast. I have worked in electronics and computers in the past and have some experience of taking gadgets apart to repair them. Is this a fault I might attempt to repair myself without risk to the camera?

Unfortunately the periods for free repair under the Canon Product Advisory have ended. Last one was the PowerShot A95 and that one ended July 31st, 2012. I have two affected cameras: A75 and S200. I think I will try to open them up and see if I can get to the faulty connector.

This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info (Cano makes this return/repair a relatively painless process):

Canon A95 - Intermittent problem. Image is purple and distorted - not all photos. First occured in hot humid weather. Thought it was heat related. Happened again in cool weather. Sometimes helps to turn...


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

Affected cameras with this problem include: A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/V3/300/400/430/500/II/IIs, IXY Digital 200a/300a/320/400/450/500/30/30a
