The option (override subject distance) was missing in the main menu

So does it work or not? I'm confused...

Ok.

Seems plausible, but I don't really know. I was mostly wondering if there was an actual connector, but I guess they don't bother with that on production hardware.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Interesting is the pad "line" at the SD-Card Slot (second picture). Maybe canon has a special sd-card fitted with some contact to connect to the pads?

Maybe there is simular stuff on other cams?

Do you want a cname that doesn't get censored ? ;)

Interesting thought, I don't see anything like that on D10. I have often wondered if the camera console is available somewhere on production cameras without disassembling, but maybe not. Searching on google I found "digital ixus 70, 75 service manual" and there's no mention of anything like this. It looks like service adjustment is done with USB.

I managed to repair my SD900  :)

It took me some time to figure out what was wrong...

A litte plastic piece at a lens before the senor did break away. This little piece does interrupts a small light barrier to detect the lens position. Without this piece, camera did extend the lens like normal, than producted a mechincal noise (i think the noise came from the gears which move the lens before the sensor up and down) and displayed "LensRestart" Error and shutdown.
I glued the broken piece back to the lens and the camera does work again.

Fixed Lens before sensor:

The used lens i bought in ebay did seem to suffer from an other mechanical problem, so i used only the broken flex cable from it.
