Canon camera A75

The screen flashes on and off as soon as I turn the camera on. Any ideas? I changed the batteries and removed the card. It still flashes with or without the card.

There is a service notice for this CCD issue and Canon is repairing this model for free. Give Canon tech support a call and they will send out a shipping label and within 2-3 weeks, you should have a working camera!

Or if you can still take pictures that turn out ok, it may just be the lcd screen. If it is not the service notice, you will still qualify for the upgrade program. You should find out how much it will cost you to upgrade to a newer model with a 6 month warranty on it.

Hope this helps!

Lens retracts when turned on


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

Power shot a75 does not turn on.


First, check that the battery terminals are clean and in contact with the batteries. Next, there are two door switches on the A75 that need to close to operate the camera. One is by the flash card door, the other by the battery door. A small piece of plastic on each door activates the switches when the doors are closed. Check to make sure that both of these are indeed being pushed in all the way when the doors are closed. Hope this helps at least one of you peeps.

Canon A75 stuck between ON & OFF after uploading photos


My Canon A75 has the EXACT same problem. I have always handled it with care. When I was taking photos with it, the camera suddenly started shutting down without a low battery warning. It just started shutting down, but it stopped with the lens still sticking half way out. Like yours, the top green light flashes when I try pressing the power button. Any ideas?

Canon A75 won't power on


The only advice I can give is to check for a fusible link close to where the battery cables connect to the PCB. Look for a component with an F prefix eg f1001 or f001. I never desolder the fuse if it's open circuit, I just break a glass type fuse and solder the wire across the surface mount component. Just make sure the fuse wire is the same value as the original.

Power On problem


Try the simple stuff first. Install fresh batteries. Remove the memory card. If that doesn't fix the problem, it is time for warranty.
