    My camera won't turn on either. I put new batteries in, it took one picture and then froze. I closed it to turn it off, took the batteries out and back in. Now it will not turn on at all.

Well, I hate to say it but that sounds like a job where you're going to have to pry open the shell, or take it to an electronics shop and have them do it. What most likely happened is that one of the wires, resistors, Capacitors (the capacitor makes an electric current larger, resistor makes it smaller) was disconnected, so the power cannot get the the motherboard (main "computer") and power the camera.

Wont take a photo - wont focus


Assuming it is not a new camera and you do not have it set to manual mode and you know how to operate it appropriately - it could be a broken lens, dirty contacts, frozen firmware, or broken camera. First try turning your camera off - wait at least 15 seconds - then try a different lens. If the camera works with a different lens - then it is your lens. If you do not have a different lens, using a pencil eraser, clean the brass (gold color) contacts that can be found on the lens and camera where they connect. Make sure you do not get any eraser particles in the camera or you will have more problems. Once done turn your camera on. If it works it was dirty contacts. If it still does not work it could just be frozen firmware. Turn the camera off and remove the battery. Then replace the battery and turn the camera on. Remove the batter will get the camera to "reset." If it still does not try uploading the firmware again - preferable with an update if available. If it still does not work it is with the camera - sorry.

Flip busted


Mine is doing the same thing.
It did it before and I called tech support.
They said to leave the batteries out for three days then put them back in.
I did that and it started working again.... for 2 months.
That isn't working this time, but maybe it will for you.

Mine still opens on my pc and let's me access the video's on my camera!

S630 wont turn on


I have this camera and mine did the same thing. YOU SHOULD DEFINATELY TRY DOUBLE AA RECHARGEABLS. I know you probably have ehard that they're no good, bubt my camera works for days if i fully charge the batteries, So, try some new and FRESH batteries for your camera.

Camera wont turn on even with new batteries.


I have the same problem as well. I have had my camera for a bout 2 years. The first time this happened was in March 2007. We had been using regular AA batteries, then we decided to go lithium and bamm! The camera started working. I was elited. Then in the beginning of December 2007, it let me take one last picture and then it wouldn't come on again. The lithiums wouldn't even work. We recently took it to a camera shop and they suggested the same as the other posts. I think it would be cheaper just to buy another camera and I think there should be a recall on this camera, if there are so many other customers having the same issue. I really did enjoy it while it lasted, though.
