Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Cannon Powershot SD780 IS. One day when the lense retracted the lense barrier or cap shutter assembly popped off. I was able to snap it back on but just the other day it popped off again and was unable to put back on because the tiny pins on the cap broke off. Is there any place I can purchase a replacement cap assembly. Thanks

The only way you can get a replacement cap assembly is to order it from Canon or go to a canon service center near you and get the replacemnet part from there.

My cannon power shot sd780 lens cover does not open when turned on. Just a black screen. The barrel does extend. Is there something I can do to fix it?


Its not easy to dismantle this kind of gadget, a broken gear inside or some mechanical parts of the lens assembly caused lens not to open or a motor controller itself, so better to find a cannon service center ear you.

Aperture sticky


I'm not sure if you mean the lens barrier on the out side of the camera, the shutter that takes the picture or the high speed shutter.
If the outside barrier is sticky, it may have water soluble stuff on it like jam or syrup.
I clean this area very carefully with a Q-tip moistened with ONE drop of lens cleaner. Carefully clean by pushing the barrier back into the lens sideways, gently, and cleaning under the edge of the lens cover slightly. This is easier to do if you remove the batteries from the camera with the lens out.
Caution - you CAN jam the lens barriers. You can pop out the barriers. I suggest getting a shop to look at it.

Dropped my canon powershot sd400, now it won't work fine


Hi there, there is two possibilities. The first one is to check the lens barrier covers at the front of the lens are opening correctly. If the front cap is dented in any way it may prevent them from opening fully when switching the camera on. If this is the case, you may be able to manually assist the cover by gently pushing them open with something soft like a cotton tip. This wont fix the problem but may temporarily allow you to use the camera. The other possibility, is that the shutter assembly inside of the lens has been damaged. If you gently shake the camera you may be able to see something shifting across the image on the screen or even when looking through the front of the lens itself. If this is the case you would need to have a service centre replace the lens for you. The same applies for the front barrier however that repair would be much cheaper. Best of luck!

Lens won't retract


Mine has done this twice, both times requiring it to be sent off for repair, both covered under warranty though luckily. Both came back saying they replaced the shutter assembly. Camera is fixing to go back out for a third time (not shutter related). I've lost all confidence in canon with this one.

Water damage - worth repair?


These are electronic devices, and have NO tolerance for moisture inside. The popping sound you heard tells the story. I suspect that you have lost this unit.

I have broken my HP Photosmart R817


I just fixed mine and what came out of the end of the lense housing was the shutter assembly. Your camera will still work but the shutter will not operate for protecting your lense.

What was on the ground from the shutter assembly looked like six parts but actually there's eight:

1 - Front round plate (what you see if shutter assembly was still in the lense housing).
2 - Hair size springs that hopefully stayed in the sides of the front round plate. IF NOT OR EITHER ARE LOST, THE SHUTTERS CAN'T BE SET TO CLOSE SO SKIP THE STEPS BELOW ABOUT INSTALLING THE BLADES.
1 - back round plate (black with four tabs).
2 - Larger L-shaped blades.
2 - Smaller L-shaped blades.

Place the front round plate with cosmetic (engraved 'PENTAX...) side down and look at the inside for two round mounting posts on the left and right. You will be using the larger of the two posts on each side for placing the L-shaped blades.

Place the larger L-shape blades with the hole end onto the posts. Blades should swing freely and their backs match with the shape of the inside of the front plate when open.

Place the smaller L-shape blades on top of their respective larger L-shape blades with the hole end onto the same posts used in the last step. Blades should swing freely and their backs match with the shape of the inside of the front plate when open along with the larger L-shape blades.

Springs (long ends) will need to notch into the smaller L-shape piece end (nearest the hole/post end). This is a real trickly part of the assembly and I used two tools like large pins or needles to pry the spring into the notch. If you can't do this, no sense in even leaving the four L-shaped blades inside of the front round plate since the shutter will not close properly without the springs.

Align and snap the back round plate tabs onto the front round plate. The shutter assembly is now ready to put back into the lense assembly.

MAKE SURE THE CAMERA IS IN THE OFF POSITION AND THE LENSE ASSEMBLY IS RETRACTED!

Align the front of the shutter assembly with the engraved wording properly oriented (not sideways, not upside down, etc.) and press gently into the lense assembly until completely in the end of the housing.

If blades were installed properly, they will open when the camera is turned on, and close when the camera is turned off.

If blades were not installed, the empty shutter assembly (back round plate snapped onto front round plate) can still be pressed into the lense housing...the shutter will just not work and the lense will always be exposed. Actually, this is one helluva lot easier than fixing the shutter assembly and not the end of the world for your camera's operation!
