Having problems with your Canon Powershot SD450 / IXUS 55 Digital Camera ?

Explanation desired on Power Fuse

\015 Hello, I read your post :\015\012\015\012"Comment by MeKiwi, posted on Apr 17, 2008\015\012Do you feel comfortable opening up your camera? How good are you with a soldering iron? There's a tiny fuse inside the Canon SD series cameras which, if blown, will cause the camera not to power up. Sometimes soldering a jumper wire to the two legs of the fuse will get your camera to power up again, but the fuse is literally about as big as this equals sign: =If you feel comfortable about opening up your camera and confident in your soldering skills, let me know and I'll go into detail about where to find the fuse, etc."\015\012 \015\012I would love further information. I am in mexico and the availability of people who know what ehy are doing with digital cameras is low. I opened up my camera to install my LCD, finishing the install the camera will not power up. I believe I have the need of soldering the fuse together, can you send me some further information about what i need to do? Thanks\015\012 \015\012-Devbryce\015

No power I turned the camera on and the lens came out then the screen went blank. I thought the battery may be low even though it was recently charged, so I put it on the charger. The orange charge light did not come on. I removed the battery and checked it with a voltmeter and it was showing 8.4 volts. Everything points to a blown fuse or something like that.

I think I'm going to explode if I hear one more "worn out battery" explanation for what seems to be a pretty common complaint. This is my 3rd camera...all ending up with the same problem. I've had the Canon Power Shot A570 for less than a year. Someone suggested changing the settings...but even with brand spanking new batteries, I can't even get it to last long enough to get into the settings. There is clearly a problem here that has NOTHING to do with the blasted batteries.

Sounds like you have a faulty board in the camera or it could be something as simple as a software upgrade, I know some of the Fuji Hine Pix had the same problem and it was the software. Take it back to the Canon. ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera
