Question about Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera
Hi i saw your solution to another person's problem earlier
i think i broke the whole thing when i pushed it in...
so do you know how i could fix that part?
or how i could take the camera apart and fix it?
Not quite sure where you are having the problem with your camera, but there are several places on the internet that can help fix your camera and/or lens.
Here is one listing I found on eBay for you - http://cgi.ebay.com/Canon-SD500-Camera-LENS-BARRIER-SHUTTER-FLAPS-REPAIR_W0QQitemZ260164183646QQihZ016QQcategoryZ64352QQcmdZViewItem
You can email him your model number and he should be able to help you.
Best of luck!

Try this: with the battery installed and battery door open, take a pencil, fine tip screwdriver, or anything long and skinny and push the tip of it into the little nub circled in the picture here. There's a spring inside that little nub... keep the spring depressed and try to turn on the camera. If it works, then either a small piece of plastic broke off the battery door or the nub got broken/pushed in too far for the battery door to trigger it. Try using a dab of hot glue to keep the nub pushed into the down position.

Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the SDHC card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera.
You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.
