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........

Toner blotched on printed material When printing


If the line has a 1/8" white margin on either side, clean your glass and mirrors.

If the line is all the way across your page, consult your users manual for cleaning the sawtooth electrode (open the front door and take out your waste tank, there is a green rod on each drum cartridge you can pull and hear a zipping noise) and cleaning the laser lens (there should be a cleaning wand under your waste tank, turn pad side down and insert in the gap underneath your drum cartridge)

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 camera. Condensation inside lens has dried leaving two blotches behind that show on every picture. How can I clean this inside once blotches are dried there?


You can't. In the future, when coming in from the cold with your camera, place it in a 6-pack cooler that is the same temperature as the outside. Put some silica gel packets in the bottom and don't open it for a while to let it slowly come up to room temp. Cleaning the lens on your present camera could be expensive depending where you take it. Use your computer to ask for estimates.

If that is the only problem with the photo, you can use Photoshop to change the pink to white. You will need to go to Image/Adjustment/Levels. Use the eyedropper on the right to click in the pink space to make that white.

The other option is to see if the bottles are bouncing color on to the white. You may want to tape some white paper to the sides of the bottle (out of camera view) so the bounce is only white.

Macbook screen blotches


If you go to turn on your laptop and loads to your os and the spots on the screen remain there then most likely you have ruptured the liquid crystals in the screen by pressing too hard when you were cleaning the screen with the computer off. you could lightly touch the black spots with your finger and if it displaces the black with a white halo effect around your finger (DO NOT PRESS TOO HARD OR WITH FINGERNAILS DIRECTLY ON THE SCREEN) then it will mean that you will have to replace the screen because it has busted the crystals definately.

What is the part number for the lcd screen on a samsung s850


If your camera costs less than $350.00, parts plus shipment will hit you over $90.00.

Oh, they come with no warranty.

Best just use the camera like a film camera. Shoot and download into computer to view or delete photos. This step is slower, but still cheaper than repairing or using film camera.

Lcd screen comes up in spots


Once your LCD has gone blotchy, that means its probably time to get a new one. Water has either leaked inside and ruined it or there is damage in the wiring. As for opening your camera, once all screws are out, it usually a matter of clips on the inside that snap the 2 halves of the camera together. I don't own this camera so I would suggest using a small flat head screwdriver and gently prying around trying to find the clips.
