Hi

Sounds like you dropped into a bowl that contained liquid? The title is chopped off, we don't know what you dropped it in.

If the camera has liquid damage.. Im sorry to say but it's probably going to have a lot of corrosion inside it and will need more parts than it's worth to repair.

I hate telling people that, but corrosion is awful, if you have bad liquid exposure it's game over.

Sorry I don't have better news for you, good luck.

Hi,
since you have dropped the camera there must be some slight internal problem which is not letting u do some small functions.So u can take to a camera doctor.He can probably fix it and it wouldn't cost much.

Can I get a still photo from a video taken with my SD750?


Just about any video-editing program should be able to isolate single frames from your video. It won't be a very good picture, since the video mode records at most two megapixels per frame instead of the seven megapixels the camera can record for stills.

My camera Canon powershot SD750 is recording very fast forward movies..please help


It sounds like you're in "Fast Frame Rate" video mode. Turn on the camer to video mode, then press right/left to select normal 640 pixel video. (Depending on the camera model, you may or may not have to press "Func" or "Func Set" first).

Dropped SD750 on floor, now won't turn on


That's a hard one to analyze through email. A camera tech would have to use test equipment on it to see if the power section got shorted when the door opened when it hit the floor. It may not be a cheap or easy fix, but only a tech can tell. I have heard of cameras getting damaged, just from putting batteries in backwards, so a short circuit might have damaged a chip inside. Of course a warranty does not cover dropped cameras, but you might want to have them look at it and tell you what it will cost.

I just dropped my Canon SD750 and now it won't turn on. Is there a reset button?....or am I out of luck?


I had a Cannon EasyShare CX7000 many years ago, had the same problem exactly, Canon cameras are not that durable when it comes to dropping it, but I have a Cannon Powershot SD1000 and I have dropped it numerous times and it still functions like it's new. three words REPLACE YOUR CAMERA. oh, and there is no reset button, you are out of luck

My sd750 will not start up


Does the lens cover move when you do this? If it doesn't, it sounds like that might be the problem.

Canon powershot SD750 will not turn on.


Hi
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.

Canon SD750 Video


if you read your manual it says that movies recorded with high recording pixels and frame rates may experience problems such as yours and also running the movie on computers with insufficient system resources

i don't know if this applies to you though, seeing that i don't know your computer Specs.

Parjeet: have you checked your camera settings and memory card and that it doesn't have the lock switch on the card so that its protected from images/videos from being taken off.
