Re: Camera will not power up

Hi, I had the same problem. One fine day I tried to switch ON the camera but it will never turn ON. Batteries OK and condition of switch OK too. Being a technical person, with the help of some colleagues, I decided to open the camera, assuming that sending it for repair would cost too much. We found a blown smd capacitor marked 4710d. We replaced it with a 47uF capacitor and also a blown link just adjacent to the capacitor. The link resoldered and the camera is working fine now. I must say that even though very complicated, the way this camera is assembled makes it easier to handle.

Camera will not power on

Assuming that the battery is OK, there are two switches that if not operating the camera will not power on - one for the SD card door and one for the battery door. Both must be closed for the camera to power on. Also, the main switch is a micro switch. You can see the battery door switch with the door open. Carefully check to make sure the little arm is closing. Sometimes if the battery door is worn it will it not close enough to close the switch - try pushing up the battery door all the way and see if it then turns on. You would have to remove the back cover to check the on/off switch, and to replace it you have to replace the entire back cover assembly. The other common cause is one of the bottom board screws coming loose and shorting the board. Most of these problem require professional repair, but if it is the battery door you can usually find them on eBay.

Power switch not working

hello sir .. does your batteries are charged already??
if your batteries are fully charged and your camera didn`t turn on,
there`s a possibility that your camera has a problem. You can visit the store where you bought your camera and you can ask questions there why does your camera didn`t turn on whenever your batteries are ok .. :)

The camera will not turn on even though batteries are new.

Hi Kris - If the camera worked before changing the batteries, but now it doesn't; check the batteries for proper insertion. If just one battery was installed incorrectly, the camera will not power up. Also, check the charge of the batteries. If even a single dead battery was included in the mix of new batteries, the camera will not power up either.

If all these conditions check out ok, the problem may be related to defective hardware (power switch, lens, etc.). When the camera is powered on, it goes through a quick self test. If any of these self tests fail, the camera shuts off immediately. This will often require that the camera be evaluated professionally. Hopefully, you'll find the problem is battery related.

Canon G3 camera just stopped working completely

Do you have a way to test the battery and you know it's ok?

Those batteries have built-in protection circuitry that can cut out or turn off the battery entirely if it detected a problem like a short circuit, etc. And it may not get over it.

Try a 2nd battery or the AC power adapter directly.

Also check that the 3 little pins in the camera DC input jack are intact, straight, and not touching each other.

Some camera's won't turn on if the memory card door is open or the card is ejected but I tested that on my G3 and it still turns on either way.

Ah.... and lastly... there is a little electrical limit switch connected to the battery cover door that disables the camera if the battery door is open. It gets pressed by a small plastic piece attached to the battery cover when you close the battery door. If the plastic piece or the tiny, recessed switch has an issue then the camera won't turn on The switch could be bypassed internally (not easy to do) if that was the problem.

Look for a tiny, thin, black plastic switch about as thin as a staple down in a recessed hole (slot) near the battery cover hinge. Try gentle pushing the battery closed switch "over" a little. You can tell which way to push by observing how the battery door slides into position as you close it. I was able to turn on my camera with the door open by doing this.
The switch is very tiny, don't break it.

If the battery door isn't closing all the way that would also cause the same issue.

Camera wont turn on-batteries are OK

Here are the steps for M763 no power problems: 1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Turn the camera on. 2. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a no power repair with KODAK or a new cable.

Try resetting to factory settings - here's how

  • Firstly press the 'menu' button, then the up button above the 'OK' as many times as needed, until you see the top folders are highlighted.

  • Press the right button near the 'OK' until you see the last folder highlighted. You will know this is highlighted when you see the first menu option that says 'Language'. The 3rd one down from that says 'Clear Settings'.

  • Press the down button under the 'OK' until 'Clear Settings' is highlighted, then press the 'OK' button.

  • Scroll up to your choice and press 'OK' to reset your Canon 400D back to default factory settings.
Now try - it could have fixed it. If not, keep turning the dial back and forth, and see if it jogs the camera's operating system. Try switching on and off. You should know, by the way, that the on/off switch doesn't really switch the power off - it tells the internal computer chips that you want the camera to switch off, and then the program closes it down enough to not respond until you either switch it on again, or take the battery out and re-insert it, when it will indicate a red light on the back of the camera to show the battery has made connection, then you switch on again; good luck - if not, phone Canon in your area
