Taking apart a Canon S40
As I mentioned on my blog, I started having trouble with the sliding lens cover on my Canon S40 digital camera. After reading a bit on some forums about others successfully taking their cameras apart and fixing them, I went ahead and did it myself.
Pretty simple. Only took out 7 tiny screws - two on the left, two on the right, two on the bottom, and one underneath the rubber flap that covers the USB connector.
After carefully putting things back together, the sliding lens cover is still physically a bit wonky, but I can at least get the camera to turn on and work now - most of the time.
