Re: canon sd 750 faceplate replcement
It's usually an easy fix. But really would recommend leaving it be if the camera is 100% functional.
The trick is finding a replacement at a reasonable price (usually from broken cameras off of ebay). Here's some examples of disassembly of older models from the sd series. Note that yours is somewhat different, but it still should be a doable project:
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.
- Provide details, support with references or personal experience.

First of all, make sure that you are using a standard SD card (2GB or less) and NOT an SDHC card (4GB or more). Though an SDHC card looks exactly the same as an SD card, it is not. As your camera came out before the SDHC format, there is no way to make an SDHC card work with your camera. If your card is SDHC, just hang onto it. Someday you'll have a newer camera capable of using it.
But if your card already is standard SD, see this link for additional things that you can try.
I've read that some of the "Handymen" out there have taken the faceplate off the T70 and put LocTite on the screws to hold them in place. OMG--not for me. Look on the web for a Canon authorized service center. I only paid $15 for my secondhand T70. I just leave the 500mm bazooka lens off it. A modest lens up to 135mm should be okay. Good luck.
Note that the product is not an item they keep in stock, so it may take 1-2 weeks or more before you receive them. Be patient.
Here are the steps to replace the bulbs. You will need a small (#1) Phillips screwdriver and a soldering iron (low heat). A very small flat blade screwdriver (1/8") will also be helpful.
1) Remove the faceplate from the radio and bring it to a well-lit work table.
2) Remove the four Phillips screws on the back on the faceplate.
3) Carefully separate the back half of the faceplate cover from the front half. There are three locking tabs along the top, and three locking tabs along the bottom. I used the small flat blade screwdriver to separate the two halves.
4) Once the back half of the faceplate has been removed, re-install two of the Phillips screws to hold the circuit board in place (one screw on each end). You don't need to screw them down tightly; just screw them in until you begin to feel them stop. These screws will keep the circuit board from separating from the front faceplate and causing the buttons to fall out!
5) Locate the two bulbs. They are labeled PL 901 and PL 902 (may also be labeled PL 1 and PL 2). Carefully unsolder the bulbs and remove them from the circuit board. You may want to do one at a time.
6) Each bulb has a colored cover to change the color of the light (I jokingly refer to them as 'bulb condoms'). Remove the covers and carefully slide them in place on the new bulbs. You may want to slightly dampen the bulbs to aid in sliding the covers on. Be sure to slide them all the way down.
7) Solder the new bulbs in place. They are not polarity sensitive.
8) Trim off the excess wires.
9) If you installed the two screws in Step 4, remove them.
10) Carefully re-attach the rear faceplate cover to the front faceplate cover, making sure that all six locking tabs snap in place.
11) Put the four Phillips screws in the rear faceplate and carefully tighten them.
That's it! Now, put the faceplate back on the radio, turn it on, and enjoy your lighted display!
I HAVE LOCATED THREE REPAIR SHOPS THAT WORK ON CANON AND GIVE FREE QUOTES. I DO NOT ENDORSE ANY OF THESE, BUT PASS THEM ON FOR YOUR INFORMATION. AS FAR AS I KNOW THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE. THE WEBSITES ARE BELOW. I HOPE THIS HELPS! GOOD LUCK! IF YOU NEED ADDITIONAL HELP,REPLY TO:ARCLIGHT1217
Start by removing battery. Then remove the camera plastic panel. After that you will need to loosen the screws holding the faceplate in on the top. You will require a special tool for this but it can be purchased from most places that sell DIY faceplate kits.After careful prying the faceplate should come loose. Keep in mind that the screen over the LCD screen is taped on and will need to be removed separately.
The part came in three days and it was SO EASY to replace. You just need a tiny Phillip's head scewdriver and about three minutes. Remove the three small screws that attach the faceplate to the camera (one on the bottom, two on the side). The faceplate pops right off and exposes the hinge that holds the battery door in place. Remove the final screw that holds the hinge in place. Reuse the original spring, pop the new door in place and then replace the faceplate.
