Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

My camera won't turn on!!

I replaced the batteries, which I thought was the culpret for my camera not being able to turn on, yet it is still in active. I replaced the batteries again and nothing. I didn't drop it on the ground, or in the water, other than a few scratches the camera is in good condition, and barely a year old... I don't want to shell out money for a new camera... but I need it to work! what should I do!?!?

I also have this problem. I tried to use upgraded batteries and it still won't work. I contacted Canon and they advised me to send the camera to them so they could look at it. I received it as a Christmas gift so I don't have the receipt. So - they probably will make me pay for any repairs. Please let me know if you came to any other conclusions about this problem. Thanks.

I have this problem too. I put rubber bands around the camera, tightening up the battery compartment lid. I do not like this fix and feel that Canon should provide a solution.

My fuji finepix s5000 has lost power


see this causes and proceed . God bless you
If the camera won't turn on, check the batteries, or connect the camera to an AC adapter. If that doesn't work, remove all batteries, disconnect the AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and reconnect the adapter.
If the flash doesn't work, the camera won't take pictures, or the screen keeps turning off, check that the batteries are strong.

My Lumix DMC-LX5 camera won't turn on


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.

My camera won't charge, and won't turn on. Should I assume I need a new battery, or is there a problem with my camera?? It's only about 2 years old. Not sure what to spend money on...


If you can't neither charge the battery through USB nor the wall charger, I would advise to first replace the battery. If that does not help, it will be difficult to tell if it's worth repairing or replacing the camera.

My Minolta Freedom Zoom will turn on and zoom but won't take pictures. The numbers dissapear when you try.


Hi. It could be that the camera needs more memory. Also replace your batteries. if the batteries are low the camera won't run properly.

Communication error with JVC Everio 32x/30GB Hard Disk Drive Cam.


Are you using original JVC Data batteries? The knock off batteries use a small cable to the charge port to defeat the battery chip in these JVC's.
