Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
My powershot A75 was recently having power problems where new alkaline batteries wouldn't power the camera at all and my nimh batteries that have worked for two years were saying change the batteries when they were fully charged. I checked the charger and batteries and they are ok. Now the camera won't power on at all. I've opened the back case and can see two lots of pos/neg terminals (one next to the ac in and one in between the flash charge and the eyepiece. Both show 5.2 volts, so I think the power is carrying though at least that far. The lens doesn't appear to be stuck because it won't power up in play mode and I have tried tapping the lens in shoot mode. Can anybody help. Thanks.
It is worthwhile testing your batteries. My new charger showed that two were duds. I replaced these and now the camera is fine. My former charger did not real the problem, and I was about to give up and take the camera for repair.

Hey - thanks for the advice. Same problem with my daughter's A75. Problem has been slowly evolving and today the camera wouldn't turn on at all. I removed the contacts from the battery door - 2 tiny screws - and cleaned the contacts with an emory board and also used a tiny screwdriver to raise the prongs of the contacts. Put in fresh batteries and camera fired right up. Hope it helps for you . . . .
