Having problems with your Canon G12 Digital Camera ?

G12 sensor failure; how much to repair?


\015 Results look extremely over exposed.\012I see others have had the same problem, wondering if it's more or less expensive to have the camera repaired or replaced.\012thanks\015

Answers :

It's usually not the actual sensor in the camera that fails, it's a connector with weak solder points on the G12 going from the CCD to the main board in the camera. This is a very common problem on the G12 until it's actually corrected properly in the unit. Very difficult to repair at home, go through a shop that is actually familiar with the problem. The place we recommend is www.camerasandparts.com since they do the internal correction to prevent this from keep happening. They are really good and under $100 for this repair and cleaning and servicing the camera at the same time is included.

Nothing works!!!!!!! I have been having problems with my 5D for some time now. The problems started with a piece of black felt on the sensor, which I noticed when reviewing my pics on the PC.

Erratic shutdown of Panasonic ag dvc7 camcorder due to dew sensor malfunction. Have tried the obvious solution with hair dryer. Can periodically resolve by removing/replacing battery or by smacking the case. Makes me think it is a loose connection, but have no idea where to look for connection. Any way to disable this dew sensor or repair without sending back to factory?


Based on vibration (smacking the case) sometimes resolving, it seems like you're on track with the problem being a loose wire or solder connection. Other than going in and fixing that, there isn't much that can be done. There's no setpoint or menu ... Digital Cameras
