Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

Camera not working

Hi My camera is 4 years old and it was working fine until some days back when the battery life expired and we used other batteries to work. It did work with other batteries fora few days but it is not working at all. I mean no power is getting into it. Is it because we used other batteries. If we use canon batteries again will the probelm get solved?

    I have had my Powershot A75 for about 5 years now. It suddenly stopped working ... it will not turn on, there is no activity when pressing the on button. I have tried three different sets of new batteries - no luck.

Check the battery connections for corrosion if not that there is a 3.2 fuse (plastic) incasement under the on off button that may be open.

Battery won't hold a full charge


batteries don't have a life forever. And no one can predict the life time of a battery.
So many factors influence the lifetime. But if it is draining very fast, this mostly means it has reached the end of life. If the camera does not get excessive hot, it has nothing to do with the camera. It is just you need a new battery.
To keep a battery in shape for a longer time you should charge it also when the camera is not used. Like at least 4 times a year. Always charge the battery a day before you plan to use it. Don't over charge, like charging it every day. Don't leave it in the bright sun or on a hot place.
A new battery, should be charged and discharged a few times, before it gets a full charge.
The "New" battery you bought, could be in stock for a long time. Special when you could buy it very cheap.
Perhaps in a few days you say, he the battery works fine now. But if you did charge it 3 or more times and it still does not hold a charge. send the battery back (I hope you bought one with warranty)

Battery life nikon coolpix s3000


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

When switched on, the len's start's to come out but then goes back and switches off. Had camera from new 3 to 4 year's.


Hi there, I suggest you replace your battery. Because after charging it will showing full but it is not real. Because you using in last 3 - 4 years and thats why the life of battery is finished. If you changed the battery already then remove the memory card and try to on the camera. If that time its working well then replace the memory card. Thanks & hope its helpfull.

Camera won't charge


Hi!

It's a problem with the battery. It already reached it's life cycle. I had the same problem with my 15 month old casio camera a year ago - flashing red light on docking station. I even tried borrowing a docking station/charger to see if something else is wrong with it.

The only solution for this is to have the battery replace.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Canon A75 No startup sound & display on LCD, rest of things works fine


Think it might be your batteries. 700mah batteries are pretty weak by today's standards (most are at least 2,500 mah these days). I'm guessing your batteries are several years old? If so, they're really only meant to have a usable shelf life of a few years, whether they are used or not. Recommend trying a new set of rechargeable batteries.

Battery life


I bought a pack of Kodak rechargeable batteries at Walmart for $15.00 9 months ago and they are still going stron - they go for about 4-5 hours without needing to be recharge, not to mention 4 come in the pack and the camera only takes 2 so I always have 2 extra ones ready.  I love this camera and use it non-stop on a regular basis (I took over 200 pictures yesterday at my daughter's soccer game) - get the rechareables and I think you will be happy.
