Hi

If you have the purchase information you should contact Canon directly and get them to repair it under warranty. That should be your first step. You can call Canon in the US here: 1-800-828-4040 Have your camera with you so you can give them the serial number.

One thing you can check easily yourself is the battery door. Is it closed properly? There is a small switch that is triggered when the door is closed, if this switch (beside the memory card slot) is not activated the camera will not turn on!

If that's not the problem then I would suspect the fuse has shorted out due to static shock or some other source.

Hope this helps! If I can help with anything else please let me know, we are a digital camera repair business!

Good luck from: Darntoothysam com

Camera does not turn on


Rosa, I think the only thing you did was get out the batteries and tried to charge them and then jut put them back in the camera.
Only a few things could have gone wrong.
One or more cells could have died, during charging. It can happen, special with batteries that have a uneven use. Like once or twice a year the camera comes out the box and then the batteries are charged. Even when you don't use he camera, make it a habit to charge the batteries every few months.
Then it could be your batteries are still in good shape and fully charged, but you put in one or more calls the wrong way around.
Please check carefully if all the cells are inserted correct.
If nothing works, and you can't check the voltage of your batteries, try another set of batteries.

Hi, It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new battery.

Does your camera use a compact flash card? I've heard that some Nikon cameras have a problem with the flash card draining power when not in use. Try removing the card when not using and see if the battery lasts longer.

I keep putting in new or recharged batteries and every time I get ready to use my camera if it over a week, it says change the batteries. This has just started happening the last 3 months. The camera is...


The rechargeable batteries, especialy NiCD and NiMH ones, loose they're charge over time. Even if fully charged, they loose all of the charge within a week or two. This is not a malfunction.

However, if you are using alcaline batteries and still get this problem, probably you have some electric problems inside (maybe some batteries leaked in the past). In this case try cleaning the inner contacts of the battery slot. If the problem persists, go to a local electronist for repairs.

Mine is over a year old. I typically need to charge it once a month if not in use and otherwise after about 800 shots without flash or 300 shots with flash.

Kodak Easy Share z712 IS not detecting charged battery


I have the exact same camera almost a year too. It is a total "swinka" on batteries. About 10-15 shots on super ni-cads, and quits without warning.

A pair of Energizer 7X gave me near 500 shots. Much cheaper but still ...

So 4 months ago I bought a charger and 2 rechargeables. Charge one while using the other one.
I may get 70-90 shots per charge on these lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, without flash.

Testing the batteries without a load doesn't really tell you anything.
What's the reading? Should be well over 4 volts when fully charged. Mine show 4.2V
