Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lens error I keep this Elph in a tiny, padded Halliburton case because the last TWO I bought ended up with broken screens. I never had a problem, though lightly used. Last night I recharged the battery and inserted it. Immediately upon power-up, the lens went out and I got a "Lens error, restart camera" error. I turned it on and off about twenty times, left the battery out overnight: same thing. I jiggled the lens with the same result. Canon tech support told me to take the battery out and toggle the power switch seven times. Same deal. So they said to send it in. But I have no idea where my POP is and it may be over a year old. Any ideas? Thanks, Rick

Hi i had problems with the touchpad keys and keys not working, tuch pad did work for a while so know it was not driver problem and as my friend gave me this EEE PC 900 as its screen was broken which i...

the keyboards break real easy they are easy to change there is 2 or 3 tiny clips along the top of the keyboard you have to push them back with a small screwdriver and lift the keyboard away and disconnect ribbon from the main unit, the touch pad is built into the case and connected to the main board with a tiny ribbon connector, check the ribbon is connected correctly, be carefull its easy to break off if the case is opened, if it looks connected ok but still not working check the driver is correct, the drivers are available from the asus website

My se k850i has broken many times...i always have to sent the phone for repair because the sensitive touch button and the screen always broken...

Consider using a phone case if you are not already doing so. The slight amount of padding may be just enough to help the phone last longer between service. Results from looking on google suggest that this phone has a tendency to have issues with the touch display. Not much mention of the "mouse" though.

Camera won't power up

You might try cleaning the battery compartment of the camera to make sure that the contacts are not corroded.

Zero halliburton triple combination lock instructions manual

Depress the square release button, just to the right of the 3 dials on outside of the case, while providing an upward pressure on the small tab on the inside of the case just behind the 3 dials. Now select your new combination by selecting new digits for each dial.

Its possible though sometimes it is expensive so dont worth the work.

-Top screen broken: you can buy a replacement and carefully do the work by yourself with the help of a guide (youtube have many) and some tools (3 winding screwdriver is the less common though not much). The foil data ribbon can be bought separatelly for the original NDS though the new NDS lite have it soldered and very difficult to work.

-Broken plastics: a broken hinge means you need to buy a replacement shell. Anyway buy a complete shell from a DS modding shop or take parts from a non broken plastics DS (water damaged one may be good) in a place like ebay. You would be lucky if you find a non broken screens and good plastics DS for parts.

At the end you may be over your repair budget and not only that, you would be very near to buy a new unit with this money. Each one make its own choice.

Good Luck...
