Thread: My dear Canon Ixus V3...

  1. #1

    Angry My dear Canon Ixus V3...

    I bought this awesome piece of equipment in Nov 2002
    Late 2004 it broke down on me and I had the whole lens funnel changed for S$210
    Now it happened again but I have no clue if its the lens prob

    Question... should I even bother repairing it again or just buy a new one?
    How much money I can get by selling a spoilt digital camera?

    you can now sent to canon for free repair if the problem is pertaining to CCD. only for certain models including your beloved V3.

    CCD is the sensor, the "film" of your V3, the thing that capture your images instead of the traditional film.

    bring to Canon at Harbourfront to check the problem, if its the sensor problem they will repair for you for free, dun sell your camera away for $20-30 dollars because these guys will go and send it for repairs and resell your camera for a premium.

    Canon has announced a problem with some of the CCDs used in its digital cameras and camcorders which causes images not to appear or appear distorted. This is due to a malfunction that means the wiring in the CCDs may come undone if exposed to high temperature or high humidity. The affected cameras are the PowerShot A60, PowerShot A70, PowerShot A75, PowerShot A300, PowerShot A310, Digital IXUS V3, Digital IXUS II, Digital IXUS IIs. Canon advises anyone experiencing these problems to contact them to arrange free repairs.

    nope, just feel funny that you purposely want to spend $20-$30 so that you will get pickpocketed overseas just to poke fun of the pickpockets? Some effort!

    eh cool guys! dont argue.

    and fidainc, i think its really just a CCD problem. bring to canon, and they will replace your sensor at absolutely no charge.
