    I have the same problem as above, with a PowerShot A75. The camera worked perfectly from 2005 until Christmas 2008, when it "froze" and powered-off with the lens extended. I really thought that it _froze_ because I was taking outdoor shots in freezing cold weather in the snow. So I set it in the house and let it warm-up abd dry, then began monkeying with it... I replaced the batteries, removed the lens, blew-out some dust and sand, pulled up the battery contacts, cleaned them off with the tip of an eraser, and eventually it powered-up and I resumed taking pictures. 


    Today -- Mother's Day (what is it with this thing crapping out on family holidays??) -- it did it again. Is there any insight to this issue yet, or do I need to take it to a camera shop for repair?


    Thanks for your help.

Unfortunately, that now means that the camera has failed internally. You will have to check with the Canon service center on repairs - sometimes they offer a fixed rate to fix out of warranty, but some times, the cost can be more than just replacing the camera.

Camera has brand new batteries... when you turn on the power, the green light comes on, then nothing happens... and after a few seconds... there are three beeps and its shuts off


its probably that this is a motherboard error, if the camera are dropped or have received a pressure. this is not a good signal. have you see if the lenns prove to open in the moment taht you turn on the camera??
if you hear a little rumor of the lens....is probably that this is a lens damage. if you hear nothing its possible that is lens damage or motherboard damage. to first control better that the batterie charger dont are faulty??? it s possible that the batterie are new but the charger dont charge the batteries proper . if batterie and charger is ok. this is a charatteristic, lens or motherboard failure. its important to find a onest camera repairer. to open the camera and look if the camera have eletronic damage, or only a faul contact problem, from a internal contact flat. good luck

I have brand new lithium batteries installed & when i turn camera on, it immediately shuts off. camera is only 1 year old


I have the same problem... cleaning the contacts does not work. I'm using NiMH 2450 mAmp batteries, brand new, and I get a low battery indicator immediately. Camera shuts off unexpectedly. A short search online indicates that HUNDREDS of people are having the same problem. Kodak help not very helpful. I'm ready to buy something else!

Will not power up


There are several reason why digital camera doesn't stay ON even when the batteries are fully charge or use brand new batteries. You can try to do the following steps to make sure that there is something wrong on the camera and not just batteries.

- Remove the batteries from the camera and the memory card
- Make sure that your using a brand new batteries
- Clean the battery contacts with a clean dry cloth
- verify that the batteries are inserted correctly
- Set the camera in Auto then turn it on
[Listen if there is a grinding sound on the lens part of the camera.]

Most Digital Camera turn itself Off when the lens won't zoom. So, if your camera start up and lens moves before it turns off and you can switch it on a different mode and it works. You need to contact your camera manufacturer and have the camera sent for repair. It might be wiring issue on the lens part of the digital camera

Kodak Easy Share Z1275 stuck lens


**** a very common problem with most cameras. There hasn't been much of a solution for this problem except to try to wiggle the lens zoom while pushing and holding the power button.
Also make sure you have brand new batteries installed. Even the slightest dead battery will cause a problem.

I had the same problem - found the answer on another forum: remove battery and memory card, press shutter button twice, replace battery and memory card, and switch on.

Wont turn on but light is blinking


Are there any error messages on the LCD display?

Will the camera lens stay out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

If the camera will not turn on even with a fresh set of batteries it could have a system or lens error in the camera.

a possible lens jamb when closed and the green led on top comes on then shuts off after the lens attemps to extend but cant.
