Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Water damage - worth repair?

Okay so a small amount of water (half a teaspoon at most) was splashed into my open shutter of my sd1000 elph. It would not retract the lense, adn the lcd started showing static and white flashes. I took the battery out, and let it sit for a day. I put the battery back in and it started popping like it was short circuiting. Canon has it now and says it is corrosion and liquid damage. Is my poor camera now just to be used for parts or is it salvageable by Toothy Sam or someone like him?

    Thanks for your response, Jig. I saw parts of it for sale, like the LCD, the battery cover etc on ebay. So, atleast the non electronic parts can be sold for parts, right? How much should a broken sd1000 fetch on ebay?

These are electronic devices, and have NO tolerance for moisture inside. The popping sound you heard tells the story. I suspect that you have lost this unit.

How to keep my shutter open for at least 2 seconds on canon powershot elph 115 is camera


The Elph 115 doesn't have manual shutter speeds so you can't set it yourself. If there isn't a menu setting for night time shooting the best I can suggest is to shoot three images, one of each stage and combine them in a photo editing program like Photoshop or the free, open source GIMP program. (Google GIMP open source for links).

My Canon SD1000 screen has gone blank.


First press the DISP button to make sure that you didn't just accidentally turn it off. Next, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras (very common for the SD1000 by the way, but also very easy to fix). The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Elph


there are some settings that can help with this (check out red eye and flash settings). The best solution I have found is to press the button down half way. The view finder will try to frame the picture, and then press the button all the way down. This 1) Eliminates Red Eye 2) Increases picture speed 3) allows for the "perfect" moment because you can leave it at half pressed for as long as you like, and 4) Allows you to take rapid fire pictures if you don't depress all the way.

Hope that helps

SD1000 _ Wont turn on and I'm on vacation!! WHY!!!


Withe the PowerShot Digital Elph cameras there is unfortunately very little that you can do for a power problem besides determining that either the rechargeable Lithium ion battery or the battery charger itself is not the problem.

Of course a good battery will work fine in another similar camera. Usually the charger works OK if the lighting sequence on the charger goes from Red to Green on a low battery within a 2 hour period of time (it should also alternate between red and green when the battery is approximately 90% charged).

If the battery and the charger are in good working order then the camera likely has experienced an electrical communications error within the power circuitry which, more often than not, is due to some sort of impact damage. Often users don't realize that their cameras have experienced impact damage but these cameras are unfortunately very fragile. A fall of as little as two feet can do sufficient damage to require service.

Given the scant amount of surface area that the contact plates actually have with the camera body, cleaning these areas will rarely effect a solution and resets cannot be performed on cameras with no power, so the result, unfortunately, is that the cameras will typically have to be serviced.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

The shutter


Have to know which shutter. If it is the shutter on the end of the lens, then more than likely the end cap is bent, and will jam the shutter. this may be able to be fixed by gently prying up on the bent area , also protect the lens cap with a small piece of aluminum or something similar as you pry gently up ward with a small flat screwdriver. Be very cautious on this, it may do a lot of damage in a split second....so be very careful...if you cannot do it, then someone who is good at repairs of small things may be able to help you.
Notice that you could damage the camera to not be able to be used at all.. so just take note.
