Re: Canon Powershot PD630 will not turn on!
Either the fuse has blown or there is another problem with the main PCB or possibly the battery door indicator switch.
Open the battery door, by the memory card slot is a tiny switch; is the
black tab for the switch still there or is it broken off and missing?
Is it jammed down? Try holding the switch down with a pencil and press
the power button... does it work?
If it doesnt seem to be the switch, it's probably the fuse. If you can
solder well you can probably replace it yourself, and I will get the
fuses tracked down and listed in the store so they are available to
anyone who needs them.. they are cheap!

Couldn't find a firmware upgrade for my PowerShot A720. Tried putting a piece of rubber under the spring on the lid to make it tighter and it helped because I can take more pictures before I get the dead battery message (even thought they aren't dead). I bought the Duracell that you can check the charge on because I'm sure I've wasted dozens of batteries by now.
Do you using Ni-MH batteries? Canon cameras judge the battery is low power by the real-time voltage of the batteries. And the voltage of Ni-MH batteries are lower than Li-ion ones, so the camera will notice low power even there are new batteries. Try Li-ion ones and see is anything help. best wishes!!

Your problem is likely due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can
prevent the full power of the batteries from
flowing into the camera.
Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and
wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full
charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may be due for replacement, or the
camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
Did you reolaced battery that evening, if you did then try holding the battery door tight and the turn it on. If this will solve it it means that there is a play in battery door that happens very often if someone is not careful enough while replacing battery or merory card.
Wow, this is trully amazing. I went to do a search on why my camera wouldnt turn on the past couple of days, even after i charged all THREE of my batteries and found similar complaints within the same time frame!! WOW. We need to get together and fight this, cause its suspect!!! I bought mine in Mass, anyone else?
