Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
I just got this camera a few days ago, and put some batteries in (but were too low) and got the green light, and the video signal too low, change batteries. I decided to use an AC adapter to turn the camera on to delete old pictures, and it didn't work. A few days later, I bought 4 brand new AA batteries, tried them out on the spot and it didn't work. I'm wondering if my camera screwed up because I used a AC adapter (which was made for a HP Pavillion laptop), or I'm just doing something wrong. Thanks in Advance, Rodolfo
Ouch! You can't use an AC adapter with any battery-operated equipment you choose to just because the plug fits physically. The A70 requires 5-6 volts, and a Pavilion adapter typically puts out 18 volts. You most probably blew out your Canon's power supply within a few seconds, unless it's fused somehow. Next stop: tech support/repair shop/camera cemetery. Sorry.
