Question about Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera
I have a Canon IXUS40. The rubber(?) seal between lens rings & the body keeps popping out. Is this something I can replace myself? It started to happen when I was travelling somewhere extremely hot. I suspect the heat expanded or softened the ring so it became over-sized for the original diameter, or the adhesive keeping it in place melted. Thanks.
It can be replaced, but requires removing the front face of the camera. Here's an example disassembly. Proceed no further than removing the front face to install the seal:
Not sure where you could find a replacement other than from another (broken) camera. The seal is mainly intended to minimize sand and grit from entering the camera, but is not necessary for operation of the camera.
