When you turn on the Camera it goes through a diagnostic self check, this includes the range finder indicated by the green light, next would be the lens operation. Question: when it reaches the point in the process immediately following the Green Light, does the lens start to move and then your camera locks up or does the lens initiate in a manner as you have come to expect these last few years? Typically, your problem indicates an issue with the motor powering the lens controls. This would be consistent with the age of your camera as well. What to do then? Visit a good professional camera store. Every city has one, and they are easy to find by their supplies they offer to the pros who still use darkrooms to develop and print from analog cameras. Their staff should be able to help you diagnose your camera, whether you purchased it there or not. The ability to have and hold your camera and then provide a diagnoses is much more easy than responding to a post here.

Still, reply with the power on cycle of your camera and the function or lack of this from your lens.

Regards,

Dear Sir/Madam,

Concur with the bad/dead battery scenario. Try to change the battery. Contact with manufacturer if u have warranty. The manual indicates that in order to fully charge the battery you need to charge it one hour after the light on the charger stops blinking.
The first impression of a battery can be misleading if you play a lot with it in order to learn all the controls, furthermore the batteries only seem to have their full capacity after a few charging/uncharging cycles. A fully charged battery gives few hundred shots, without flash.

Thanks
Good luck

Click the Display button few times until the display turns back to normal it might work sometime if not it must be a more serious issue.

You need to contact the canon because this suggests a loose connector in the internal board of the camera.

Hi,

I suggest you to once try switching over to 2500 mAh Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries. you will see a difference.Digital cameras with zoom lens need more power than what can be supplied by ordinary batteries.

How can auto settings on canon elph 310 be overridden for flash fill.


In Auto mode the camera decides whether it needs flash or not. To have control over the flash you need to switch to one of the semiautomatic modes or the manual mode.

Olympux sp600uz flash does not work


You mean, you see the flash logo on the screen, indicating the flash is charged, and then the flash does not fire at all?
Or does the flash logo not appear on the screen?
If the flash does not charge, this could be, because the batteries are low. Or when it takes a very long time before the logo comes on, same reason.
If your camera is on automatic and you did not select flash off, the flash should charge, when you pop it up. The logo on the screen should come on, and when not enough light is available, the flash should fire when you press the button.
Everything in the camera can go defective, but the flash on your camera is made, to last at least as long as the rest of the camera. So make sure you are doing everything correct (like in the manual) before you think the flash is defect.
The manual is still online.

E32 error when i turn my camera on


I can't offer a solution but you may be able to find answers on the Canon website. Look on the support pages, they also may have a forum where others have come across the same problem. Final resort, talk to Canon themselves.

Flash will not fire on Canon SD780 IS Elph


The flash circuit is defective. As it's only a couple weeks old, recommend just exchanging it for another from your place of purchase. You shouldn't be attempting repair while its under warranty.

Canon sd10 elph , screen is black,turn it on or off still black


Try inserting and removing the A/V cable plug a few times (that TV cable that came with the camera that hardly anyone uses). There's a little contact switch inside that turns off the screen when the cable is inserted. Sometimes the switch can become a little dirty with corrosion and can turn off the screen. Inserting and removing the cable plug a few times can sometimes clean the contact switch. Good luck!

Indicator ight


If it turns orange, it only means that the flash will be used. Green is when the flash will not be used.

Do you get an orange light?

Hope this helps!
