Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon A75 won't power on

My Canon A75 won't power on. Just failed without notice or reason. Camera built in November 2004. Out of warranty. Symptoms: No display, no lens movement, nothing at all. Usual suspects checked: The batteries are good (replaced two sets, and tested all with voltmeter). The battery compartment has no bent or dirty terminals. Have tried with different, working compact flash cards and without any CF card at all. Carefully removed back case and inspected. The CF interlock microswitch appears to work. Can measure 4 AA (6 vdc) voltage at several terminal points. The internal, button battery tests at 3.5 vdc with a voltmeter. Any expert troubleshooters out there with ideas, or suggestions from a Canon Service Manual? Perhaps this problem has been solved for other "A" series Canon cameras? I want to fix it myself, since value of camera is not worth the $200 charge that repair shops typically charge. Thanks in advance, Cal

The only advice I can give is to check for a fusible link close to where the battery cables connect to the PCB. Look for a component with an F prefix eg f1001 or f001. I never desolder the fuse if it's open circuit, I just break a glass type fuse and solder the wire across the surface mount component. Just make sure the fuse wire is the same value as the original.

Canon Powershot A75 lens got stuck midway

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:

If the above don't work, then you may possibly be experiencing a lens error. Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty they're worth a try:

Canon A75 displays images in pink

The problem could be either the display screen has partially failed (red green or blue color is not displaying) OR the screen's connection to the control board needs to be cleaned. Either repair requires disassembly. The charge at my shop would be $49 labor plus parts if required.

How get parts or repair canon a75 ccd, for non USA residents

Contact Canon. I had the same problem and eventhough it was outside of warranty they fixed it for free because they recognized this as one of their own problems with the camera. Unfortunately I have the problem again. So I am going to see if Canon will fix it again for me. Good luck!

Canon Powershot A75 blurred LCD display

It sounds like the focus element in your lens is not functioning properly. Does the lens retract completely when you turn off the camera? When you push the button does the camera attempt to focus the image? If you do not see any change in the image when you push the button, and do not hear any sound - then your focus motor is either jammed or malfunctioning. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Canon A75 stuck between ON & OFF after uploading photos

My Canon A75 has the EXACT same problem. I have always handled it with care. When I was taking photos with it, the camera suddenly started shutting down without a low battery warning. It just started shutting down, but it stopped with the lens still sticking half way out. Like yours, the top green light flashes when I try pressing the power button. Any ideas?

Power On problem

Try the simple stuff first. Install fresh batteries. Remove the memory card. If that doesn't fix the problem, it is time for warranty.
