Re: Hey, it's Emery again.
I dont know what your first thread said or what the answer was, but normally no-power has nothing to do with the battery, though trying another known good battery is the first step.
There is a small switch under the battery door beside the memory card slot. Is this switch damaged or missing? If so the camera will not turn on.
Your other most likely problem is the fuse, if its burned out it needs to be replaced. You will need to solder a new fuse in, it's really not extremely hard if you know how to solder and the fuse is cheap to buy new.

hello , some digital cameras go dead because of non use, low battery, if you have a/c adapter please use this and try, check the contacts of the battery and battery chamber if it corroded, use a mild emery paper and clean, bang the camera gently with flat of your hand, hope this helps
OK try using some steel wool or emery paper (fine) on the terminals inside the batteryy compartement. I suspect there is some sort of corrosion or substance causing poor connection. Hold the camera so no swarf gets retained in the battery compaertment. Wipe the area clean after rubbing contacts
When you opened it the cog connected to the motor which opens and closes the lens probably shifted and no longer has traction against the ring around the inside of the lens which turns it to open and close it. If you open the camera up again be extremely careful - the lens has loads of springs inside it - lose one of these and it won't work properly. I opened up the whole thing to try and fix my lens which had been jammed in after a friend dropped it. I fixed the lens but couldn't put the damn thing back together again to many tiny parts and no guide to the jigsaw!!
I would have it looked at by an authorized service center in your local area, and of course you can always bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and have them look at it. I would not try forcing it open as this could cause additional damage to the camera.
I would try taking the battery out and waiting a minute and then reinserting the battery. Another option you have is to try and reinitialize the camera, but you would need access to the settings menu on the camera and it doesen't sound like you do. To initialize the camera go to main settings 1 and choose initialize. If this doesn't work I would bring it to an authorized service center to have it looked at.
This is actually a very good camera.Did you insert the batteries in reverse accidently?? this seems to be a problem with the switching circuit from battery and power adapter.. did you keep the camera with batteries for a long time with out use??
U can give it to the nearest service to get the circuit checked.
all the best my friend..
That happens to me once in a while...Just when I feel like throwing in the towel, it starts working again! But I am actually having a problem right now: Even with fully charged batteries, the camera goes into "low battery" mode when I turn it on, and right now I can't download some really important pics...ARGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!
I see that the S40 uses AA batteries. I have been reading on many of these forums about the regular alkaline batteries causing "strange" problems with digital cameras. My suggestion is (if you are not already doing it) is to get some 2000ma - 2500ma NiMH rechargeable batteries and a charger. This will probably solve your problem.
