Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
I am following the instructions to strip down my Canon Powershot A70 found here: http://menthol.hit.bg/E18.html I'm having problems removing the camera housing. I can prise open the bottom of the housing, but the top bit, alongside the shutter, where the auto/video rotary dial is, just won't budge. The pictures show removing the shutter casing. Done that. Next they show removing a small green plastic square/cube. I can't see how to do this. It appears to be soldered onto a thin metal ribbon. Some other instructions don't mention this step at all. As an aside, the problem I am trying to fix is bent pins in the camera where the memory card attaches. If I can get in to the camera, I can try and fix or replace the part. Canon want £100+ to repair. No way! Any help gratefully received. Thank you, in anticipation! CD
The top is held in by two plastic snaps, one by the on/off button and the other beside the Canon lettering. The trick is to press down on the front half of the casing with your left thumb (on Canon logo) and use your right hand to gently twist the back half back and forth while pushing out the bottom until the snaps release. Be patient and it will eventually come apart.
