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

My camera turns on but I see nothing except a dark screen

Many cameras have an option to turn off the display to save battery power. Hopefully it is just turned off and not damaged. Try to turn your display on. A local camera store or can offer more help.

Camera will not turn on. Battery fully charged;

You can give it to an expert for repair, he can repair it for less as there must be just a fuse problem, which can be fixed for a very less amount.

Ixus 75 battery discharges overnight even if the camera is turned off.

That's it, the battery's defective, it's not the camera...unless you've tried another (new) battery...

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't power on. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

The manual states that the battery door was opened during use. Close the battery door and turn it on and off. You may need to push it closed to make sure the battery connections are made.
