    • Using your fingers, carefully pull the the back cover off by grabbing the bottom left of the back cover and pulling outwards.

  9. Disassembling Canon PowerShot G16: étape 9, image 1 de 1
    • Using your fingers, carefully pry the front cover off starting at the bottom right.

  10. Disassembling Canon PowerShot G16: étape 10, image 1 de 2 Disassembling Canon PowerShot G16: étape 10, image 2 de 2
    • Remove the 3.8 mm screw at the bottom right of the port cover housing using a Phillips #00 screwdriver.

    • Lift away the port cover housing.

  11. Disassembling Canon PowerShot G16: étape 11, image 1 de 1
    • Reorient the camera so that you are looking at the back.

    • Make sure to pull the connector straight down as pulling up may cause harm to the connector.

    • Unplug the button circuit board from the motherboard by unlocking the ZIF connector (gently lift the brown lock that keeps the cable in place).

    • Pull the connector downwards with the tweezers.

    This is not completely correct. In order to pull the connector down without force, the little grey tap on the top of the connectorbox has to be flipped up.

    This particular step cost me the connection to the button curcuit board. I would be grateful for an indication of where I can buy a replacement. Thanks.

    Martin Salamon - Réponse

    You saved my connection. Thank you. iFixit... I'm somewhat disappointed these steps haven't been corrected.

    It's worth noting that I had no luck with tweezers when attempting to remove the ribbon cable. The correct procedure would be to carefully lift the plastic clip with an iFixit spudger and then continue to step 12. The ribbon cable will pull out gently without any other coercion.

    Phil Howard - Réponse

    The clip is a red/terracotta colour, this should be lifted like a lid (the hinge is mounted in the grey housing). The connector should be pulled downward as described. This should definitely be corrected. Thanks for the comments to assist. I added this for extra clarity on the colours only.

    • Do not pull the connector upwards as doing so may harm the connector housing.

    • Unlock the ZIF connector for the large connector ribbon by lifting up on the brown flap with the plastic opening tool.

    • Unplug the small connector ribbon by pulling the cable outwards from the camera using a spudger or your fingers.

    Be careful with this step. I broke the black connector off the motherboard for the small ribbon cable. It is very fragile. You might want to push down on the black connector to hold it in place while gently pulling the ribbon to the right to extract it from the connector. Don’t let the black connect pull up or twist.

    • Remove the top portion of the casing by firmly grasping it and pulling it upward to lift it off.

    • Some force may be required, but be careful to not bend either side of the top casing up too much or you will damage it.

    At this point the tiny little ribbon cable and flat-flex with two diodes on it (face sensor?) may still be attached to the right of the viewfinder lens. It may just be caught on the two locating pegs. Pull it gently upwards before removing the top.

    Same precisation of Phil Howard! Please attention at that flat-flex, raise flat before remove machine top!!!!!

    Probably would be helpful to remove the memory card before doing this step. I’m not sure that was suggested previously.

    Also, just opening the battery compartment door may be helpful in removing the main board.

Excellent guide, thank you so much. My camera has an intermittent fault so I should now be able to save a lot of time and money by trying myself to find the possible loose connection inside.

Moisture ring on inside of lens. No way to clean this off. Also, shutter release button gone: no replacement found anywhere.

Thank you SO MUCH. One of our company cameras, a PowerShot G15 had a dead display. A person on the Canonforum…

https://community.usa.canon.com/t5/Power...

…recommended disassembling the camera via iFixit instructions for the G16 (slightly different than the G15), unplugging the display, and plugging it back in again…WHICH WORKED. Did the whole thing in about 30 minutes. Awesome. Saved us a lot of money. Very grateful.

Hi,

Could you describe how to disassemble and assemble the lens curtain - th esix leaves and two springs that cover the lens when the lens is retracted into the camera? I’ve tried to assemble it, but end up with the mechanism only closing 2/3rd way. It opens fine. I want to replace my scratched lens with an unscratched one, but the new one is the one with the curtain problem. Thank you!
