Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD790 IS Digital Camera ?

Top right slider button won't slide to "picture" will only take pictures, and won't take videos also, the right side faceplate came off because both screws fell out.


Answers :

This is a very easy fix, Recommend first calling 1-800-OK-CANON to get an estimate for their repair. It really should not be costly at all to repair due to the ease of the repair.

\015\012But, if they seem unreasonable in their estimate, you'll need to move the back face plate backward just enough so that you can align the slide button with its inner switch. Just remove the screws (keeping track of where they go) along the perimeter of the back faceplate. Using your fingers only, gently pry the plate back a small amount sufficient enough that you can move the switch to its other position. Reseat the back and see if the switch moves freely. Then try out the camera, and reseat the screws.

Lens broken my camera fell off a table and now the lens is screwed up. when i turn it on it is just a black screen. but if i press firmly on the right side of the lens, the picture blurs, fuzzes, and then comes into focus, once i take my finger off it goes black. so i can take pictures, but only with my finger on the lens. it seems like this is fixable. what can i do?

My Olympus FE-370 has a broken screen, my fault. I bought a replacement off ebay for really cheap and it seems like it would work fine, but I'm having trouble taking the camera apart..A few of the screws, three around the screw-in tripod holder in the base of the camera, two on the right hand side close to the lens, and one right under the USB port, refuse to come out! If someone could help me with just that part, I would probably be able to figure out the rest! Thank you!
