Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

Re: view finder screen

I need to clean the backside of the viewing screen. White wine was splashed on it and now there is a blotch under the screen. Can I open the camera and clean the backside of the glass.
The camera still works but I took out the smart card and battery and let the camera dry. The smart card and battery and probably the inside of the camera, except for the screen , are dry.

Hi

It's very simple to remove the back half of the body and clean the inside of the LCD window, and any 'shop' you take it too will either cringe and hide (because they don't know how to repair camers) or they will tell you it's $100+.

I'm not going to give a long detailed description, but it it's not hard to do. Remove the screws in the sides and bottom of the body, then the front and back will come off if you pull them apart at the bottom, and there are small clips holding them together at the top. Sometimes they stick together, but there are no screws at the top. Take off the back, theres nothing attached to it, clean it up and put it back together.

Please don't pay somebody $100 to clean it for you. If you really need somebody to do it we will for $25 incl return shipping of the camera; we are an actual digital camera repair business. (Google darntoothysam).

Good luck.

Thomas.

I would suggest you to take it to some camera stores and get it cleaned.Because if u try to remove the camera and fix it,it might work fine it might completely kill the camera.So why u wanna take risk while there are ample stores near you.It wouldn't cost much........

I don't think anything is wrong with your camera. Just check the Manual.
Your camera has a view finder, to make pictures. Yes the little screen on the top left (Backside) As an extra the camera has live view, that can be switched on and off. because the live view consumes lots of power, it is advised to use the view finder. If you want to switch it on, you can do so in the settings menu. There go to the live view en switch it on.

Water Damage to View Finder


Hello,
Try cleaning the viewfinder with a damp (again?) soft cloth. You can use a product recommended for cleaning camera lenses. You can still use the screen to view the scene you want to shoot. (I am assuming that what you call the viewfinder is the small eye that used to equip all cameras, before it was replaced by the view screen.)

Hope it helps.

View screen on back


The XT does not have a "live view" feature. You have to use the viewfinder.
The LCD is strictly for data and picture viewing.

Dust inside my d200


The view finder and focusing screen are separate from the CCD sensor. The mirror reflects the image to the view finder until you take a picture. Then the mirror goes up, the shutter opens to expose the CCD to capture the image.

If you have a lot of dust, you should look into a cleaning kit, or have it professionally cleaned. This will show up on your images as white and/or black specks.

Screen or main board failure. If it is still under warranty you may have a chance bit if over a year or so old - not worth considering for repair- though you could try. take a look through the file here http://www.fixya.com/support/p423-nikon_coolpix_5600_digital_camera/solutions
