Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera ?

Canon SD850IS not powering on at all

\015 Went to the beach, camera was not submerged but was lightly splashed once while in my hands very minimal. After the power button did not work? Is it worth sending to the manufacturer or a repair shop such as yourself? Please advise\015

Hi

Water exposure of any kind is very BAD. You can short out the fuse or you can cause bad corrosion to the PCB (printed circuit board).

You can try replacing the fuse on the board if there isn't heavy corrosion seen, the fuses are very cheap and if you know somebody who can solder well then can do the repair fairly easily once you locate the fuse on the board.

If there is bad corrosion, you will need to replace the PCB. Problem is NOBODY out there will sell you a PCB for a decent price because they are very expensive to buy new from Canon... roughly $150 I would say, if not more.

We take pride in being an affordable digital camera repair shop, and if we can we would love to help with your repair. I don't have current pricing for this PCB but I can check with my overseas supplier and find out how much they are new. I can also see if I have a used one (I think I do...) that we could use to do the repair if that is what your camera needed.

Again as I said... corrosion is bad. If there is ANY corrosion Canon will refuse the repair.

If you would like to give us a try, please contact me or visit us online. (Google: DarnToothySam)

Even if you dont use us let me know if I can be of any further help.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Canon Powershot SD450 E18 problem: The camera lense would not open and reported error code E18 on power-up and then would shut down.

A Canon A570IS will power on and and everything works with external power (3.5-3.7V, 2A. 3rd party) but is dead with batteries (two fresh alkaline or NIMH AAs).

Again, lens, flash, storage, LCD, etc. work with external power, but not with batteries. I am at a loss. Any suggestions?


Since the external power works, we need to know, first off, if the battery terminals have continuity with the external power supply contacts. That will tell us an important part of this puzzle. The one hard thing about this problem, is that what ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple
