Repair of an Canon Powershot S400 digital camera. back to projects

The camera would not do anything anymore, after a short check the fuse was blown. Fuses are used commonly in small devices, however mostly there is something more wrong when a fuse is blown...

Taking the camera apart, count the screws and remember the place of every part

the fuse is the black part in the middle of the photo

the fuse is temporary restored with a wire and the camera worked again

close up of the wire, later this wire is replaced again with a proper fuse
