Great guide, used it to tear down my A2200.  Found an internal battery:MS6145E located on the top ICB (where the flash is,) does anyone know what this does/powers?

My camera, according to Canon USA has a bad sensor(?) because the display fails after taking one photo, but they did not say what sensor or its location.  I tore it down looking for sensors and found one for the flash/redeye and a questionable object (I don’t think it’s a sensor.)
