Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera ?

I have a couple broken pins in the compact flash connector internal to the camera. Can I order a replacement socket and attempt repair myself?


Answers :

It can be done, but it's not easy and requires patience and a good invetory of parts and screws. Replacement card reader can be salvaged from a broken ebay camera (A75 and A85 readers are interchangeable). Here's a disassembly of a very similar A70:

BROKEN LCD Today, I had my camera in my camera bag. Somehow, the screen got busted. I took out my camera to take a picture and the entire full screen view is cracked. The camera turned on and off just fine; it seems that only the screen was damaged. No images are shown when I attempt to look at the pictures I took and when I try to take a picture, I cannot see anything on the screen. Is the screen repairable or is it best to purchase a new digital camera?


It is repairable. there are service centers around that can change just the screen for you. ... Polaroid i737 Digital Camera

I have a Canon HF M30 we bought in Dec 2010 and my husband attempted to plug in the cable into the USB port of the camera and discovered it would not 'connect' to the computer. In other words it wasn't recognizing it (we've used it many times before w/no issue) so he unplugged from camera and looked inside USB port on Camera and there was a plastic piece that was broken and just hanging in there. We sent to Canon since it was still under 1 yr warranty and they want to charge us $282 to repair it


This is a manufacturing defect for sure. Contact Canon support again and demand they fix it under the warranty. Explain you are prepared to contact the Better Business Bureau, the Attorney General, and begin posting videos on YouTube describing the p ... Digital Cameras

I have several Nikon D40 cameras for my yearbook program. We have generally had good luck, but the doors on two of the cameras have either broken or are not closing smoothly. I do not want to be without the cameras if I can order doors and put them on myself. Has anyone done this? How complicated is it to replace the doors? Thanks


Yes the doors warp and cause this problem, the real issue here is that you can't buy the parts or the tech manuals for the camera, that is the exclusive domain of the Nikon factory service centers, so what this means is if u want to fix the camera yo ... Digital Cameras
