    Thank you for the quick response. I fugured i was gonna get a an answer that i did not want to hear, but im not the one who messed it up. Please, if you dont mind, i noticed you said pc board in the plual sense. I have this thing apart, so i am assuing that you do mean the 2 pc boards that are looking at me in the face. If i had another camera of the same kind that had a physical problem making it no good but the internal mental stuff seems to be working good. If i was able to swap them out and get everything tacked back in place, should that work? or are the pc boards only good for the camera they came in? I hope this question makes sense.



    PS. Should i just give it back to her and thell her to use it for a paper weight? LOL

Sorry there is nothing you can do to fix the camera. To fix it you need to replace the PC boards in the camera. Your friend shorted the camera out and there is no down-loadable repair manual for it. I would just replace it sense you can buy one on-line for 199.00 It would probably cost around 100.00 to 150.00 ro repair it if you take to a shop that can fix it.


I hope this answers your question.

    Yes you can try to change the pc boards with another camera. There is not one board for just one camera. They should be inter changeable. I will not guaranty it will work though sense the other camera was damaged. You said just physical but it can be more.

The latch for the battery cover on my Power Shot A720 IS is broken. Can it be fixed?


Probably not as the cause is most likely broken molded plastic parts that where to small and thin to last very long. Seems to be a common problem on this otherwise great pocket camera. Use tap or a rubber band to keep the battery cover closed so the contacts still work. Bad design by Canon.

Plug charger in and will not charge the fan on the charger quits running in a few seconds it will beep with charger pluged in and when you unhook charger it clicks like a dead battery i wonder if charger...


David Are you leaving the power on while you are charging the Chair? If you are try charging with power off at the joystick. The manufacturers of all power batteries do not recommend charging with automotive chargers. I would try to locate a friend or neighbor that also has a chair or scooter and borrowing their charger for a few hours to see if it will charge your chair. If not contact your provider and borrow a charger from them. If the different charger works then yours is bad. You shoud be able to order a charger through your provider or by calling Pride Mobility @ 1-800-800-8586 Hope this helps you PS I didn't say you couldn't use the "other" charger. But I wouldn't want you to think I approved of it

The phone has been dead for more than a year


You cannot usually charge a totally flat battery from the USB port. These are only used to "Top UP" the battery... You need to replace it with a fully charged one,and then us the USB to keep it fully charged.

Have a Canon A720 IS won't download.


Blame Microsoft updates. Try using a separate card reader instead of your camera.

How do you recharge the battery on the power shot sd 1100?


A quick look on Cnet reviews says the specs for battery and power are:

Power
  • Power Device Battery charger - External
Battery
  • Supported Battery Canon NB-4L
  • Supported Battery 1 x Canon NB-4L Li-ion rechargeable battery ( Included )
An NB-4L battery charger is what you need to charge the battery for that model. My Canon charger is a small box with fold out wall socket prongs and a mount for my battery to slip into.

This looks like a Generic version sold on eBay, that includs a Euro/mexico Socket adapter.

Canon powershot A720is continually powers my computer on and off


Don't thru the camera out the window as it is working on the other system.

I assume you are connecting the camera to the computer USB port; if yes, please check the USB drivers of the operating system on the computer. there might be a physical USB port issue, or USB driver issue or USB port over current issue.

Check all this things before connecting ur camera or check with any other USB device.

H700 wont do anything


I think the charger is the problem. I ordered one of these and then it wasn't charging the day I got it....it's supposed to go from red, to orange to green as it charges, but the red LED just goes off after a while, before the headset is fully charged. I solved this by charging it through a USB-to-miniUSB cable on my laptop USB port. This worked beautifully....unfortunately I think the H700 chargers are faulty.
