The On/Off/VTR Switch doesn't function anymore and the camera is a month old. Basically anytime the battery is in the camera or the camera is plugged in, it remains 'On'.

That means you can't charge batteries or use VTR mode, or turn the thing off. Way to go on this one Sony.

Canon powershot SD1300 IS won't turn on, even with fully charged battery


Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Nikon d80 won't turn off. Stayed on after viewing slide show on TV. Operates properly with switch in "off" or "on" position. Tried:1. removing battery. it restarts with switch...


It may be as simple as a broken or worn out on/off switch. If the switch shorts out, the camera will always be on or always be off. The problem could also be the switching circuitry. If you need service, you should call Nikon's Service Department at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687)9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

Hi,

Initially, a couple of possibilities that you can check/explore:
  • starting relay (most likely);
  • start switch;
  • starter motor;
  • loose wiring, connector, terminal; and others that could not be discounted
  • insufficiently charged or weak battery;
  • neutral sensor/switch/light;
  • sidestand switch/sensor;
  • alarm/security system.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
