Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera
I used the camera for hours last night, haven't had a problem with it yet. This morning, it will not turn on. I've tried with the memory card out, in, recharged the battery, etc... Help, help, help!
These models are notorious for defective mother boards. First check the tiny switch inside the battery compartment for physical damage. If the plastic piece does not pivot freely or is partially broken you can pop this black plastic piece out of the switch with a pin or needle very easily. The camera will power on ok without it. I have quite of number of these models with defective mother boards and Canon service will not give me any help whatsoever. If enough people complained perhaps they would issue a recall notice.
