Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera
Help me please! My new camera wont turn on. I have tried a new battery and nothing! I brought it overseas so my warranty is not valid :( It just died mid way through my sisters wedding, fully charged :(
I have never heard of a memory card shorting out a camera... but I guess anything is possible.
Your camera takes a proprietary battery, it can only be inserted in one direction and will not fit if inserted the wrong way so it is impossible to reverse the polarity.
There are several things that could be wrong, ill very briefly describe them.
1- There is a small switch under the battery door beside the memory card slot, if this is damaged the camera will not turn on. Is it damaged? I've seen cameras with the switch actually missing, so if there's no small black switch visible thats most likely the problem.
2- The fuse has shorted for whatever reason causing the camera to not power. If you're really handy you can replace it yourself; they are cheap and all you need is a soldering iron with a really small tip.
3- Something else on the PCB has shorted out the camera and you need to replace the PCB. You won't find one of these for cheap easily.
1- Buy a defective camera online and use the parts to make one good one.
2- Go to a store and they will tell you its $150+ to send it in for repair
3- Find an online repair business that charges REASONABLE amounts: (google: darntoothysam)
4- Sell the camera online for parts and get a replacement (not the best choice I dont think)
I think we should try and repair items like this whenever we can, please don't throw it in the trash, I hate to hear about it when people do that. You DON"T have to pay $200 to fix the camera, no matter what the "Geeks" at the "Squad" tell you.
Good luck from Darntoothysam com

If you are using a memory card then please take it out and then check if its turning ON.and check with the battery polarities and also check if they are compatible.it should work fine.
