    I did as what the solution said, when i push the spring in, in was broken, so i tried jaming some pieces of tissues in, but when i pushed it in, the tissues when through inside the camera...what should i do, i completely destroyed the switch in there.

    I have the same problem as him, so when i pushed the spring in to jam it, it broke down, so i have to put some tissue papers in to jam the switch. But when i pushed them in, the tissue papers when through in the camera body...I think i broke the switch itself and pierced through the switch...what should i do? Thanks

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.

SOURCE: Canon Poershot sd300 digital elph. It just wont turn on period.

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.

SOURCE: Can you use an SDHC card in the canon powershot

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.

I have a Canon SD300...it will power on just fine, and the image screen will focus, but when I try to take a pic it just freezes (not black) and will not take the pic.


Maybe lens needs adjustment. The info on this page may help. Copy and paste this link for more info.

No it won't charge through the USB port. Just buy a new generic charger for the NB-4L battery. They're very inexpensive. Here's some from Amazon:
