Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Canon Ixus 75 dropped and won't start

I dropped my camera today, it fell onto the LCD side and the battery compartment opened although the battery didn't fall out. The camera was turned off and the lens closed when it was dropped Now the camera will not turn on. I hoped it was the battery and have since fully charged it and the camera will still not turn on. I have removed the memory card and downloaded all of my pics.

The camera feels entirely dead and there are no external breakages or marks ie the LCD is intact.

Could it be a simple problem that I can try and fix myself overnight as I need it for work tomorrow, or is it worth taking to a local electronics repair? I won't be sending it to Canon. If you think it's most likely some hideous internal issue than I'll just have to buy a new one tmw am.

Your help will be most appreciated as I cannot really afford to buy another one.

Thanks
Wendy

These models are notorious for dying mysteriously. I have 6 of them in such a condition and must assume it is a defective component that only Canon is aware of as no one on the internet has come up with a solution. Two things you can check. There is a switch that is activated by the closure of the battery door and clearly visible. Make sure the plastic piece in the switch has not been broken off or partially split in two which may prevent it from being activated when closing the door. With the battery installed and the door open use a toothpick to press on the left side (towards the centre of the camera) and press the on button to see if you get a power on condition. The solution then is to jam something inside the switch. Number 2 involves opening up the camera and locating the single fuse that I'm aware of. It looks like a surface mount resistor with a "T" marked on it. Go to the top of the mother board. Locate the internal clock battery, to the right is a connector and beside this is the fuse. Check it for continuity with a meter. If it's blown all you can do is solder a shorting wire across the contacts. If you have the skill and tools to do this make sure the battery is out when you do the repair. Good luck.

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. As you mentioned the door fell off, would recommend focusing your attention on inspecting the door switch and the plastic nib that pushes in on it. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

My canon ixus 75 displays a black screen when in the shoot mode,this happened suddenly while taking a number of pictures,although I can still veiw pictures on the memory card.


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

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.

My camera fell & when i tried to open it it says memory card error


Digital cameras are very sensitive to drops/falls. 2 things possible, 1 try removing and reinserting the card hopefully that clears it up, if not take the battery out and allow it to reset for about 30 sec. If either of these doesn't solve your issue Your next step is camera shipping.

Battery display on canon ixus 75


Its same for everyone. You can only see the battery when its about to run out. IN that case a red flashing icon appears on the upper right corner of the screen otherwise there is no indicator for ixus 75.
