I actually own “TWO” Canon SD750s because I dropped my first SD750 in the sand. The first one “magically” started working fine after I bought the second one but if I had known such lens replacement DIY was available, I wouldn’t have had to buy the second one. Here’s how to replace your Canon SD750 lens if it breaks or you drop it in the sand like me.
One more thang, even if you don’t own SD750, any other Canon SD series will probably similar.
One day, after a short adventure with my toddler son, my Canon SD750 developed an odd dark spot in the middle of the image. It was just bad enough to ruin every photo.
At first I was not sure if it was a lens issue or a LCD issue, but the dark spot only showed up on new photos. When I viewed old photos, the camera didn’t show a spot, so it was the lens. Zooming in confirmed this. As I zoomed, the spot got darker and had sharper edges. A crack also seemed to appear in the image.
Damn. This camera was only about 14 months old, but out of warrantee. Damn.
