Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera ?
How do you get the case apart?
\015 I have removed the 5 screws outside the case, 2 inside the CF compartment and 2 in the batery compartment. I removed the zoom and the case is loose at the bottom but something seems to be holding it at the top in the area of the mode selector.\015\012Thanks for any help.\015

Lens spring/s A couple of weeks ago I got the dreaded lens error. In my case it was probably due to sand. I took the camera apart and when I came to disassembling the lens - the spring popped and fell on the floor - as I picked it up it caught in the carpet and I ruined it. So my question is where do I get a replacement without sending the whole camera back to Canon? Also is there 2 springs, as there seems to be hooks for 2?
I had teh same question, I'm trying to repair mine atteh moment and there is only one spring.\015\012\015\012still trying to get teh lens back together propoerly, managed to rip a cable track so have to get another anyway... spewing.. ... Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

I bought a replacement LCD screen for my Nikon S3000 camera, but when I remove the back case, the connector for the LCD is under the silver plate. I can't figure out how to get the plate off to reach the connector so I can install the new LCD. I've removed screws, but it still lifts only halfway. Is there some kind of trick I'm not seeing to get this thing open?

Hey I have a Nikon P100 and recently it developed a snag i was not able transfer my Pictures and apart from that i realised after sometime there was another problem my camera was not charging properly. However it shows my camera is charging but it doesn't get charge or gets discharged after couple of shots
This is usually caused by slightly oxidized battery contacts. Clean the contacts on the battery and inside the camera with a qtip and at least 90% isopropyl alcohol. Check your charger output, and if good, you might have a bad battery. One neve ... Digital Cameras

Olympus 570uz is not working and is not worth the cost of professional repair (as told to me by Olympus), so I'd like to take apart and see if I can get lucky fixing it myself. Otherwise, it's a paperweight. Can anyone tell me the secret to removing the back cover? All discernable screws have been removed, but it's getting hung up by the hot shoe and flash. My next step is to take out an x-acto blade and start cutting, so please let me know the secret. Tried finding a repair manual online with n

I have a powershot a620. The battery compartment is coming undone...where you hold it..so the batteries have a little jiggle room. When it first "popped out" a small amount it was fine. on a recent trip it started coming apart more and the batteries then quit holding a charge. A fresh set of batteries now lasts about 20 min. I am guessing it might be because they don't have as good of a connection but I cannot get that part of the camera to go back under the "lip" and am afraid to take it apart

I had taken many pics in Florida in the last several days with my camera and then 2 days ago, I tried using the camera and I am getting the message "Card Not Intitialized". The camera was kept in its case and did not get wet. Does this mean I have lost all of my photos on the card? Is there a way to correct this ???? The camera is a Fuji FinePix A360 digital camera. The card is a Fujifilm XD-Picture Card, 1GB. Thanks for any help you can offer. JW

I received a Canon PowerShot SD870IS Digital ELPH as a present for Christmas. Unfortunately, my apartment caught fire three weeks ago. My Camera was in its case. the case is burnt on the outside and the camera looked dirty on the outside. It seems to be working but I am just worried that there might be some more damage in the inside. Shall I send it to Canon for an overhaul? What do you suggest? I cleaned the outside but I am still not sure. Please help!

As I was putting my beautiful camera back into the case, the camera switched on and I think there may be a problem with the zoom as it seems to do a little dance. I believe the lens slid out and pressed against the case before I was able to get the camera turned off.

Lens Jam My G6 turned on accidentally in its case and the lens tried to extend but was forced to stop. Now, when I turn the camera on, the lens makes a ratcheting sound and gets halfway before stopping. It beeps and says "LENS" on the top LCD screen, before powering off. I've been quoted £160 just to have it looked at which is half the value of the camera! Does any one know how to open one of these up (safely) and what to do when you get inside to fix the problem?! Many thanks

Won't work Have a C875 for a year now, and it has been working just fine. The other day I decided to try a AC adapter on it. Well, the AC adapter I used is one of those variable voltage ones. I set the voltage for 3 volts, plugged it in, it doesn't work. O.K. I put the batteries back in, still don't work. And, to top it off, the batteries get hot. Took the camera apart and I don't see anything burned up. Lost. Any help on what the solution could be and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.
Oh no maybe you used different adaptor some adaptor have reverse polarity. check the adaptor before plugging it..if you using variable voltage set to 3v then adjust also the polarity. the polarity should match the polarity of your camera. ... Kodak EasyShare C875 Digital Camera
Lense Issue When I turn on the camera the lense started to move out and then got stuck. How when you turn it on it just trys to adjust the lense but again it is stuck. I am required to remove the batteries to get it to shut off. I was going ot open the case but three of the screws requires a nice special allen wrench, but guess what, they did not provide it. Any ideas where I can score one?
