Introduction

Replacing the speaker in the Canon PowerShot G3 is not a difficult task, but can take some time to disassemble and reassemble the camera.

Note: There are many screws to be removed before you can reach the speaker. It is advised to not continue until you have a magnetic pad to place the screws on.

  1. Start to remove the screws around the camera: from the front, back, sides, and bottom.

    • Order a new speaker from the manufacturer or take it to a local electronics store to see if they have one.
