Camera won't turn on... how can I tell what happened to it?

I boyfriends sister has the camera and she was taking pictures of her bro outside... all of a sudden the camera turned of and at first functioned some what, but the screen wouldn't turn on... then a few minutes later the camera didn't work at all... I noticed the yellow light was on and the green light was blinking before the camera completely stoped working don't know if that means anything... I am wondering if she dropped the camera or got it in some liquid before hand and it finally seeped in to the camera... or maybe it was in the sun to long... I really don't know much about cameras... and I asked her if she had gotten it wet, she said no, but she is also only 16 so, you know how it is... please help

It is possible that the camera got wet. But it is also possible that a circuit connector has loosened. Only a camera technician can tell you.

Camera exilim ex-s600 will not take pictures outside,pictures turning out white,yet will take pictures inside this a worthwhile repair

This seems to be a software problem with your camera. Your camera should, if on AUTO mode, automatically expose your photo accurately. Try half pressing the shutter button (used to take pictures) while outside to adjust focus and exposure, then press the button fully to take picture. If your camera cannot adjust to take a properly exposed picture (not bright white), then it is possible that the shutter speed is stuck on a too high speed, outside daytime shutter speed should be fast (1/1000 sec). Or if your shutter speed adjust accurately, it could be the aperture if the aperture is not small enough for daylight shooting. This is likely a software problem. Try adjusting your settings manually and see if the picture turns out!

Blackness ... everywhere

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Camera beeps 3 times

I had the same problem. My boyfriend suggested that it had to do with the camera holding a charge after the initial battery failure. He told me to take the batteries and memory card out for 10 minutes or so then try it again. I tried it and it worked like new. =)

If that is the case, you need to turn off your flash when
taking outdoor pictures because it seems that the pictures are overexposed.

Try to avoid the sun when taking pictures outside.

But you could try the steps below:

- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Return batteries
- Turn on camera

- Turn on camera
- Press MENU button
- Scroll to the right until you see SETUP
- Scroll down and look for RESET
- Press right button so you could see YES or NO
- Select YES
- Press MENU button
- Turn off camera for a few seconds so that
settings will be refreshed

* If it still does not work, call the Manufacturer so they
could tell you how to send camera for repair.

Screen is Black

Oh sisters! Give her this camera and buy another. The screen has failed for a any number of reasons If you cannot record an image[point the camera at something press the ****-did you get a picture? Yes then it is a circuit board failure. No then it is a CCD failure. If it is fairly young a year or less - contact Canon for a replacement[or the place you got it from] If it is moer than a year Contact Canon - it may be a failure they know about and will replace the camera free or offer a huge discount on another.
