The Canon SD790 has a problem where the two screws in the side of the camera work themselves loose over time, then fall out. Many times people lose the two side body pieces of the camera as well!

Both screws need to be put back in place and held in with 'Locktite' so they don't fall out again.

If you do a Google search for "Canon SD790 screws " you will see in the #1 position Darntoothysam com, where you can buy the exact OEM Canon screws for $7 including shipping.

Hope this helps!

This is probably not going to help you much but I left mine into a little shop which has sold cameras for years and does repairs. They managed to find some screws that fit the camera. There's no point going to a jewellers or opticians because the screws that they use are smaller than the ones that are in cameras. I know because I tried!

I have the SD790 IS, and the zoom button seems to be stuck/sticking making it very difficult to get the camera to zoom (or playback to zoom) however, when it does, it "jumps" to where it wants to...


The SD790 has a problem with the power button and sometimes the zoom switch, thankfully they are on the same assembly. You can get a new part for $35 incl shipping, or have it installed for just $30 more.

Another design flaw of this camera is:

If you haven't checked the screws recently on the handstrap side of your SD790 to make sure they are tight, I would advise doing so. Actually, take them out and secure them with Locktite, because if you don't they will fall out and the whole side of your camera will fall off.

If you need the zoom switch replaced, I happen to know the shop linked below would check and secure your screws for you at no additional cost!

My canon powershot sd790 will not shut off


That's a known power issue on the SD790. Try camerasandparts.com as their no power service covers no power or any power problem at all which is what you are having. Not turning off is a power issue. They'd be the place for this one, they just do powershots and nothing else at all. They are totally amazing when it comes to service for the powershots, good luck with the problem it is having.

Sounds like two things are happening here. You may be putting the card in improperly...check the manual to see if the card should be face up or face down. Also, be sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position.

Canon sd790 screen is black


Thi is probably just the sensor that went out in the camera. You just need to have the ccd sensor replaced. There's an amazing site that a lot of people go to for help with the powershots, that is all they specialize in and they're amazing if you need some help with one of these. That website is: www.camerasandparts.com and your specific problem of no image on the SD790 is right there on the site so you can get help with it. They're fantastic with these Canons, good luck with it as that's really a fantastic camera.

Set the correct time, using the 24-hour clock. If you do this at 3PM, for example, set the hour to 15, not to 3.

I need the plate and screws that cover the side of the camera with the wriststrap holder on a Canon SD790IS.


Those screws always fall out, you can get replacement parts online and make sure you put a little "Locktite" on them to hold them in so they don't fall out again.

If you do a Google search for "Canon sd790 handstrap piece" you will see a listing in the #1 position where you can buy them for about $15 for the parts including shipping.

Hope this helps!

Replacement screws


FYI I just called Canon (1-800-828-4040) about the screws.
They are sending 2 screws out to me free of charge "as a one time courtesy."
Perhaps they got lots of complaints.
Thanks for your help
