Question about Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon SD550 wont turn on.

I have the above mentioned camera, and it seems to be having the ''no power issue'' from what i've found by searching. However, nowhere can i find out how to fix it. There are plenty of places that offer repair for $69-89 including return shipping which leads me to believe this is probably an easy fix.

anyone have an idea of how to fix the ''no power issue'' on this thing? i really like this camera!

    im a little unsure of where i should see the micro switch. where would i see that?

    the power button functions as it always did and the battery contacts are fine. tomorrow i'll throw my multimeter on the battery and hopefully know where to check the microswitch.. will i need the cameras housing off to see it?

A few things to check...
1. Make sure the card/batt door is seated correctly and if you can see the micro switch ... make sure it's making contact when the door closes.
2. Check your battery contacts for bent/broken tabs etc.
3. Make sure the on/off button is making contact when pushed..
Not sure if these will help but worth a check...
let me know if you have any success.

    It should be a tab on the batt door that pushes the micro on the camera body...

I recently purchased a Canon EOS Rebel T3i SLR camera (July 2011) and already I am encountering a problem called "Err 05 the built-in flash could not be raised." Does anyone know how to resolve...


Hey Leo,

Unfortunately the problem you've mentioned is quiet common with your particular model.

Here's what Canon recommends, on its website.

-Turn the power switch to < ON > to turn on the power again.

And, if that doesn't work. Buddy, you'll have to drop by a service center. Hurry up, or you'll run out on the warranty period.

Toodles,

Rebel K

Canon PowerShot SD550: With two different download cables, the computer reports "No camera found". What do I do next?


Seem like you PC don't recognised your camera. Have you install the camera driver ? the driver CD usually come with the camera package. If you already install the driver but you get this problem, re-install proper driver until complete/success to make your PC recognize your camera.

Hope this help and if this helpful RATE please.

Canon sd550 no flash cant take pics. at night


Let me tell you the possiable causes of this issue you having with your camera and then you can decern the best course of action.

the flash has a capacitor inside the filles up with power from the battery then once charged dilvers a sustained voltage to the bulb to create the flash.

Now if this componet has failed or is intermittant then this would happend.

Keep in mind that a battery that is towards the end of its prime will do this to so do not just go for repair all of the sudden try a new battery. If the new battery does not work then you know you got the issue I am talking about thus you going ot need a camera shop to change out that peice.

thanks for your attention and prompt ratings and feedback today.

My lens for my canon powershot SD550 is stuck open.when switching the camera power on E18 appears on the screen in the bottom left corner.


The E18 error is 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.

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 40% of lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty they're worth a try.
