I got 2 pins of CF slot has been broken.
Tried change battery to 2 fully charged with now the whole camera not functioning.
I try to bring it to Canon Authorized Service, they need to replace the whole camera motherboard with the new one.
Decided to take repair by myself, hope internet community can help..
Then I opened the camera to find if any fuse has been burned, located fuses with E, P, K mark, test it but look okay (still connected).
They i suspect an IC with burnt looking

but cant find the replacement in the market.
Anybody have idea for my situation?

None of this sounds good. I would start by checking the condition of the pins in the CF card slot. A small light and a loupe will help. If any of the pins are damaged, bent, or even missing, then the camera may have had a short circuit and blown the internal fuses. Neither the pins or the fuses are user replaceable.
Hello,i had the same problem days after i bought my camera.It was my fault actually trying to put the CF card on the wrong side.Anyway i have send it to the canon service for repearing.The guys there were very nice,and changed the pins without any charges,since my camera was brand new.So my advise is to send it to any of the canon services and they will keep you inform about the status of your order rapairing.Good luck.
Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, you can take it to be professionally repaired by replacing the card reader. But you may also want to consider repairing it yourself by unbending the pin.
To do so, remove batteries and card. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. The jeweler's screwdrivers that you see at the dollar store will work fine. Another tool that I sometimes use is a stiff wire with a bent hook on the end to get very flattened pins started.
Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed).
It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's the best that you can get it, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.
