Canon A75 Battery door

Canon A-75 directions to remove and replace battery door

I have a canon S1 IS camera with a broken battery door. I have ordered and received the new battery door, but am at a complete loss as to how to take out the old one and install the new one. If anyone has some pointers, or better yet step-by-step instructions with pictures (never hurts to ask!) I would greatly apprciate it.

Never did it on an S1, but on other models it required removing the back face of the camera to access the battery doory hinge pin.

Examine your camera, and if this sounds feasible, remove all screws along the perimeter of the camera (keeping track of their sizes and where they came from, write it down with a crude drawing of their locations/sizes). Also look for screws in the battery compartment, and any visible screws behind flaps/doors. Once all perimeter screws are removed, you should be able to remove the back face of the camera by prying it open from the bottom. Once opened, the pin holding the battery door should be able to be slid out, enabling removal of the old door. Then in reverse slide the pin into the new door, and reassemble the camera and its screws.

Camera won't turn on


1. Most likely is discharged or improperly inserted batteries. Make sure to use freshly charged AA batteries that are inserted with the correct polarity. The Inner 2 have the minus side up and the outer 2 batteries have the + side facing up.

2. Close the battery door fully because the battery cover pushes on a small sensor that has to be closed before the camera will turn on. The battery cover slides and clicks into place. If the battery cover sensor is bent or damaged then the camera would not turn on. The battery cover sensor is tiny, and out of the way and probably not obvious that is has one.

3. Insert the proper memory card and close the memory card cover securely. If it's left open or not seated fully the camera may not turn on. I

4. Also remove the memory card and re-seat it, then close the cover again in case it was not fully closed.

5. Remove the batteries and check that the battery terminals are clean and they appear to be intact. For example, corrosion from leaking batteries could cause a poor connection.

6. Was the camera dropped? If it was dropped that can bend the metal battery contacts, then when you put the batteries in it doesn't really contact the battery properly.

7. If it still won't turn on have an electronics guy check it over, or at the local college electronics teacher. I've fixed these before and the main DC circuits are not too complicated. These camera's can even be powered up using a regulated 6V DC power supply connected properly to the battery terminals, (just for testing) and in that case you don't need batteries to tell that the camera works or not. These draw about 300mA of current when ran from 5V to 6V DC.

I attached a JPG photo showing a similar Canon A60 running via a DC power supply and no batteries. This one was apart at the time to fix a stuck zoom lens, and when it's apart there is no where to put the batteries so I have to power it this way.

You do not have to take it apart or use this method. I just mentioned this so it's clear that all it needs to run is 5 -6V DC from properly charged and inserted batteries (or an external source). Don't try connecting anything if you are not familiar with electronics because connecting it up wrong can damage the camera. Try the suggestions mentioned early and it will probably work since these are pretty reliable cameras.

Battery door replacement


Does this mean you have a replacement door already?

If so, you will need to figure out how the camera comes apart. This is not always easy to do. I suspect there will be screws or snaps hidden. Improper dis-assembly will cause damage to the case and/or finish.

I would contact Canon and ask if there are any repair shops near you that they could recommend.

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.
