Okay so many months ago i dropped my canon powershot 540 and the shutter button popped out and I could never find it. Since then I have pickup a few powershot models to attempt a minor repair with no luck,

I still need a shutter button for the 540 i have camera.

Anyways tonight I was out at Circuit City looking at the camera and they had the Canon powershot A590is for $149.00. I thought it was $129.00. I'll have to go check on that again.

Nope is was 149.00

Those are said to be quite good cameras. If you ever want one you won't break snag an olympus 770sw or whatever the newer version of it is now:thumbup

Sorry for the typo's :doh

I can still use the 540 but I have to use a paper clip to press the button. Of course that's metal so I'm looking for a small plastic button with a spring that I can pop in so it will work. If I can find that I may take the 590 back as I really don't need it.

Repaired my Canon A540, only one problem. I failed to notice a little rubber gasket behind the lens. It shields the lens from the plastic of the bezel. I'm now wondering if the new front camera bezel had this rubber seal on the bezel or was I suppose to use the old one.

I have not yet tested it for pictures so ...

1. I wonder if it's needed.
2. I'll see soon if it works.

Rats, reviewing the instructions that I posted here I found my dust ring. :banghead If the new cover did not have one I'll have to pull the cover back off. No way to know with out pulling it back off.

I should be okay I did not break anything the first time.


A540/A530 ir cut filter removal tutorial (pics)
This tutorial will show you how to disassemble a canon a540/a530 to the sensor to remove the ir cut filter.

Tools:
#00 philips screw driver
soldering iron

couple of notes:
- there is 300 volts or so inside the camera. canon has done a pretty good job shielding those areas, and I haven't gotten shocked even though my fingers have been everywhere, but be careful anyway. it's enough energy to kill you several times if you're unlucky.
- you may end up with an ir sensitive camera, or you may end up buying a new camera.




remove the green and red screws. the green screws are identical. take off the back cover. the back cover snaps together with the front cover at the top of the camera.




remove the screw and loosen the clips holding the lcd. disconnect the cables connecting the lcd and set the lcd aside.




remove the screw and take off the front cover. there's a thin dust ring between the cover and the lens barrel, don't lose it.


Edit redone.

Now to test it....

I don't take that many pictures for such a nice camera. If if I had the monies I don't have the talent. If I did I'd have my own PORNO site :devious

Well there is that religion thing and my kids potential embarrassment that prevents me, but it sure is tempting. I'm tired of working for under 40K a year.

Camera FIXED :hail
