Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
My Canon SD1000 will no longer power on. I have 2 batteries for it. I have charged both up fully (the light on the charger turns green) and tried both batteries. I have cleaned the contacts on the batteries with a dry Q tip. The contacts look very clean. The camera was working beautifully one day and then in the same day it failed to power on and remains this way. The camera has not been dropped. The camera has not been wet. What do you think is wrong with it. It is just out of warranty. I purchased it in May 2007.
There are several things that could cause this.
1- Check the battery door indicator switch under the battery door and beside the memory card slot. Is the little black switch damaged or missing? Try pressing down gently using a pen it with the door open and then press the power button. Does it turn on?
2- The fuse has blown and needs to be replaced. Offhand I don't recall where it is on the SD750 PCB or how hard it is to solder on a new one (depends on if its tricky to get at or not). Good thing is fuses are really cheap.
3- Other power problem with the PCB due to corrosion or impact damage. The PCB or 'motherboard' of the camera will need to be replaced.
