Question about Cameras

Open Question

Have a canon e808e camcorder. Not been used for some time. Plugged it into the mains and used the mains connection. Power light comes on but only for a few seconds, then goes out again. Same if I press the eject button. Same happens if I try using the battery. Any advice would be appreciated

SOURCE: Canon A540 flash charge not holding

Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to a advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

SOURCE: lens retract problem

The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

SOURCE: When plugged in does not start up

Looks like the battery is screwed. This usually happens with laptop batteries when not recharged for a certain amount time(Usually around 2-3 months). Replace the battery and every thing will be back to normal.

SOURCE: Camera won't switch on

I thought the batteries had worn out because when I press the 'on' button the 'busy' light comes on for a few seconds and then goes out and nothing happens. Have changed batteries and checked installed correctly.
Any ideas please?

Check your wires they might be touching steel around your car mostly look at your yellow and red wires those are the 1' that give it power and light to your radio also check your radio fuse in the back.

I have a Canon FS100 Digital Video Camcorder. I am attempting to download some video on to my iMac, but then I select "Connect To Camera" I get the message "No Camera Was Found". I have the camera plugged...


The computer is no longer detecting the camcorder for several reasons. It could be the ports on the computer, it could be the cable that you're using to connect the camcorder to the iMac, or it could be the camcorder itself.

Try connecting the camcorder into different USB or FireWire port of the iMac.

Try using different cable.

Try connecting the camcorder into different computer to test the device.

If all else fails, power cycle the camcorder by turning it off and remove the battery for about 10 minutes. Then turn it back on. Otherwise, contact the manufacturer for second opinion.

Hope these helps and have a great day!

I am trying to load my video recording to my PC


I experienced the same thing. The compact power adapter is simply the power cord used also to recharge the camcorder. Plug it into the wall at the same time as you have the USB plugged into the computer and it should be able to download.

When connecting the dvd burner and the camcorder to a cannon fs11


I'm not 100% sure of the question your asking here but I believe that the message you're getting is because you need to have...

(A.) Power cable plugged into the DW-100 (I assume you're OK there).
(B). USB Cable connecting the DW-100 and your camcorder (OK there too)
(C.)You must ALSO have your power cable plugged into your camcorder.

Many people forget about 'C' but Canon works on the premise that offloading data can take time and drain the whole battery so you must have everything running on A/C in order to do your work.

Hope this helps.

Canon mv800i fault


OK after searching the net to fix this problem and no one having the answer I decided to fix it my self.
My Canon MV 800i cam had the same fault to I took it to bits. Inside there’s the cams main board that has loads of ribbon cable connecting on to it from its bits like lens, power supply, viewfinder , cassette deek. I unplugged all of these and removed its main board and cleaned all the ribbon cables connecting end with isopropyl alcohol, you can use most electrical cleaners should do the some trick. Then just reassembled the cam and tested all fixed
Give that a go and see how you get on
