Question about Canon PowerShot S30 Digital Camera
I dropped my camera a couple times and it had survived until one day I realize (not right after the drop) there's some loose part. When I shake it there's a noise like something is loose inside. I turned it on and it turned on fine.. but about a minute or 2 after that it just died. The LCD went out and there's no sign of life. The zoom lens is in an extending position. I reseat/replace the battery but it didn't help.. It's completely dead - no power. So I tried to take it apart but seems like the front cover doesn't want to come off. In the process, I shook the camera and 2 screws fell off (no more noise when I shake it) but I have no idea where they came from.. I would like to get a disassembly guide or instructions to see if I can find where the screws belong. Any suggestions..
I need a disassmbly guide for the S30. i turned on my camera and it worked just fine. But it randomly just turned itself off and the lens is still extended. i shook it and heard something loose. I opened it up to find whatever was loose but now can't put it back together. If I could get help as to how to fix my problem and then put it back together correctly, that would be great!
Canon does not provide parts diagrams, even to camera repair businesses such as myself so I can't help you out with that.
I can tell you that the screws probably shorted out your fuse and that's why the camera will not turn on.
With the screws out of the sides and bottom, the two case pieces will separate at the top if you just pry them apart. As for where the screws go... hard to say, but you can probably see where they are from once you get it open.
Good luck from
