No power !

Have a prob with my camera,went to use it and seemed to have no power,i thought the battery maybe flat so i charged the battery then put it in and still no power.I put battery back onto charger to see if the abttery had charged and the battery had gone completely flat again within a couple of secs...i thought it must be the battery,i bought a new battery ,put it in and i still have no power to the camera. When you slide the lens piece across to turn it on the lens it does not protrude,just nothing! i don't recall camera being misused or being wet. Is there a way of eliminating what`the problem could be? any ideas will be appreciated....thanks

Re: no power !

As indicated in solution #2 dirt deposits in the channel that prevents the cover from moving the switch to turn on the camera. To get at the channel to clean out the **** remove the 6 small screws (two on each side and two shorter screws on the bottom of the outside of the camera). Remove only the six screws that are holding the front of the camera body on. The silver band seperates the front of the body from the rear. Wiggle off the front of the camera body. With the lense cover closed you can wiggle off the plastic inside of the front cover from the exterior of the body. By doing this you'll expose the track that the lense cover rides in. Notice that the top track moves back to contact a black plastic switch. **** will typically be in the channel preventing the lid from contacting the black switch. Clean it all out and reassemble. Camera should work fine.

Re: no power !

Yes the usual cause of this problem is that dust/dir deposits in the channel that slide the cover and it is blocking from closing the switch....... the solution is simple....... remove the fromt cover turn it upside down so that your are looking at the cover from the back...... take a ver fine jewellers sflatheas screwdriver and gently prise out the inner front....for the front face plate... it will pop out...... look very closely at the channel the mecananism slides along,,, your will finf that dust/ dirt is prevening the it from opening fully........ clean out the dust.. that will cure the problem.. hope this helps

Re: no power !

My wifes had the same problem, and just tonight I took it apart. I found that the shutter cover, was not making contact with the on switch. when I put it back together, I made sure the top right hand corner of the face, was pressed tight to the camera body. problem solved. Hope this helps and isn't to late in reaching you. Rob 5-18-2007

2yrs old. Went thru 3 sets of batteries to get 20 pictures. Dead again. What`s the story?

Sounds like you have a short in the wiring. This is repair shop stuff, or buy a new camera time. Usually, if it is a point and shoot , it is not worth sending for repair as you'll playas much as a new camera is worth. I would look for a new camera, personally. Good luck.

Will not charge when plugged in

have you tried an external battery charger and a different battery?..... maybe its the camera not sending power to the battery..... or the battery is good and the camera is dead, the external charger will help you decide where the fault is.

I have a polaroid i634 that has an issue with power. Initially I put in alkaline batteries and it worked for awhile (or at least as long as my daughter used it). Then it stopped working. I was told to use...

Hello ..
I hope that really problem with charging.
However, it look like cause from battery. Whatever type of new battery that you used, that no meet the requirement as original battery that included with camera. During testing the camera, they also don't use other battery except that original battery. Maybe it seem like have same power, But it chemistry is different. However, you can try using same battery from polaroid also.

TRy look here
I don't want to scare you, but is good to have new battery same like original and also from same company. As long you are using other type battery, It maybe will effect components in camera. So beware and careful.

If you think that charging is problem. THen try recharge back around 8hours. However if u are using external charger. and not using camera to charge battery.If you only can charge through camera, try recharge around 2-3 hours. Pull out battery from camera. place safely and avoid any magnectic environment . Around 2-1 hours, charge again 2-3 hours. After charge, around 10-15 minutes, try used it. It still have problem? If still face same problem. I advice to find suitable battery.

I was taking pictures, but paused for a moment to find a better angle. I guess I got distracted for a few minutes. I went back to the camera to see that the screen was black. I thought it had turned itself...

Hi. Yes, that happened to me once. Battery went dead and doesn't have enough power left to retract the lens. Camera worked fine after I put in charged battery. I hope this is your case too.

Battery keeps dying

Most likely the charging circuitry has failed. When you fully charge the new battery what does the battery meter read on the camera? Your two options no matter what the case are repair vs. replacement. If you need further assistance let me know.

Canon S2 IS won't turn on with rechargeable batteries??

I would let them charge til you get an indication that they are done. TV remotes require very little power to operate, while digital cameras need a lot, so that's why the batteries would work in the remotes though not fully charged.
