SOURCE: battery pack

I don't know if this will work but it worked for my PowerShot A300.

Take a pencil eraser and clean the battery connections inside your camera. Just be sure not to let any eraser flakes inside the camera.

The Canon rep indicated it would work for the A300 ... Not sure why it wouldn't work with yours as well.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Battery Fully Charged Camera Won't turn on

Hi

There are several things that could cause this.

1- Check the battery door indicator switch under the battery door and beside the memory card slot. Is the little black switch damaged or missing? Try pressing down gently using a pen it with the door open and then press the power button. Does it turn on?

2- The fuse has blown and needs to be replaced. Offhand I don't recall where it is on the SD600 PCB or how hard it is to solder on a new one (depends on if its tricky to get at or not). Good thing is fuses are really cheap.

3- Other power problem with the PCB due to corrosion or impact damage. The PCB or 'motherboard' of the camera will need to be replaced.

A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.

Don't bother trying to send the camera to Canon if it is out or warranty (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.

I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.

If we can help with your repair then please let us know.

Hope this helps,

Thomas

SOURCE: My camera won't turn on. It is an older cannon rebel sx (8mp).

I just got off the phone recently with Canon. I explained the problem to them and they stated that it appears it is due to the cold weather. I saw some stuff on these posts about Christmas Time, etc...They said that most of the time the camera will be ok after it thaws out, but some issues can be caused because of this. One of them is total lack of power. They said that the camera I have has a minimum temperature that it can handle of 30 degrees. This can cause the LCD to freeze, can cause short circut problems, etc...Thus leaving your camera totally in-operable.

The technician tried to help me first rule something out. He had me REBOOT the camera....seems odd to do that if there is no power, huh? Here is how I did mine....

Power on the camera....Remove the battery...then the Disk battery....leave the battery door open for one full minute. Now turn the camera off.....put the disk battery in, then the regular battery....close the battery door....power on. If you have power and your LCD monitor goes on it will say something like 00007 or something like that.

Unfortunately.....Mine didnt. So they are sending me info on my email to send in my camera. It will need to be repaired/replace the parts etc...

I hope that your cameras end up working. They guy from Canon suggested that in the cold weather while carrying it, keep it under your shirt close to your body to keep it warm, dont change lenses in the cold air, and if you are photographing an outdoor sporting event and its cold enough for you to be covered up, then do the same for your camera.....he himself wraps a hand towel around his whole camera except the end of the lens and the view finder (the one you put your eye up against, not the LCD) Wrap a rubber band around it to keep it in place on the lens and unit.

So....like i said, please...I hope this helps.

Keep me posted!!! Would love to hear positive things that your camera has started working again.

Hello,
You can give it to an expert for repair, he can repair it for less as there must be just a fuse problem, which can be fixed for a very less amount.

You may need to remove the battery and use a screwdriver to scratch the battery contact point in the camera. It may have been coated or corroded.

Camera won't turn on


If none of the suggested causes helps resolve the issue, then I suggest you bring it in for repair.

Please check the following things when the camera does not turn on.

Possible causes and how to handle them
1. The camera is not on

Turn on the camera. (Operation procedure varies between camera models. Please refer to the camera user guide supplied with your camera.)

2. The rechargeable battery is not fully charged.

Make sure the rechargeable battery is fully charged. If the battery has not been used for an extended period of time, or if it is being used for the first time, it may not be fully charged. In cases like this, fully charge the battery and then discharge it completely in the camera several times to bring the battery back to its normal performance.

The rechargeable battery's capacity diminishes the longer the battery is used. When the battery consumption becomes quicker, the battery life may be at its end. Replace the battery with a new one.

3. The battery terminals are dirty.

When camera does not operate with a brand-new alkaline battery (for cameras that use AA-size batteries) or with a fully charged rechargeable battery, the terminals may be dirty.
Polish the terminals with a dry cloth and make sure the terminals are clean. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor contact and power may not be fully supplied to the camera.

Also, polish the battery charger terminals with a dry cloth before charging the battery. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor contact and the battery may not be fully charged.

4. The batteries are not installed correctly (for cameras that use AA-size batteries)

For cameras that use AA-size batteries, multiple batteries are used in one camera. Make sure the direction of each battery matches the direction indicated on the camera. If any of the batteries are improperly inserted, the camera will not operate.

5. The battery cover or CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely closed

Most cameras have a lock mechanism on the battery cover. The camera will not turn on if the battery cover is not locked or securely closed, or if the CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely closed. Make sure these covers are securely closed.

If your camera does not operate after checking each of these things, or if there is any visible damage on your camera that could be the cause, please contact the nearest Service Center.

I have a brand new Nikon D3100. The battery was fully charged and placed in the camera. I took about 4 photos, and then turned the camera off. When I turned it back on the battery wasn't working to...


The solution to your problem is simple, Kathrynbax.


The battery never comes in fully charged. It's always charged only so you may be able to check if your camera is working. I suggest, you take out your battery and put it to charge for exactly 90 minutes as the manual says. Then I'm sure you won't face any such problems.


Hope this solves your problem.

Good day!

My battery is fully charged but when i turn the camera on it shuts right back off


SOunds like your battery is bad. try discharing it :
  1. Place the battery in your camera until it itself turns off. In this situation, the battery is fully discharged.
  2. Take out your battery and slide it into your battery charger.
  3. Connect your charger with power to fully charge the battery. It is normal for a new battery that battery indicator shows 100% capacity in 10 to 15 minutes. Please keep charging until there is no time left for charging.
  4. Fully charged and fully discharged or "cycled" as much as five times to condition them into performing at full capacity.
Try it and see if it works? If the batteries are not rechargeable then the problem is in the cameras power supply and you need to take it in or replace it.
