Re: No power at all
If you're sure the batts are fresh, check for corrosion on the battery contacts. Hold the on-button for at least 5 seconds. If still nothing it's probably a blown fuse. Check with us for prices: www.crystalcamera.com

First lets try a reset by pressing the menu button for two seconds, if no luck the press both the menu and self timer buttons for 2 seconds... The last reset will reset the camera back to factory default.
If still no luck then remove batteries ,memory card for few minutes. Then remove the lens and check the mirror assembly, do not touch the mirror with your bare hands, use gloves or a plastic utensil. The lens should be down in front of the shutter. If up then try and release but be careful... After that just fix the battery back in camera and power on. Let me know the result. If the F--- gone the pix the lens and power on again. Then memory card. If you face the error again then the problem occur in memory card & you need to format that. Thanks.
make sure the batt is charging and working fine.check also the batt contacts.make sure its clean.insert batt to your camera.instead of pressing the power button, press the play button instead to power camera on. if unit turns on,might actually be an issue w/the camera unable to power on in camera mode.if it turns on initialize cam (p.75 of the manual).see if it works.if still wont turn on try using a diff batt (or if you have an optional ac adapter model#acls5k use it, attempt to power on cam to isolate issue w/power source).if batt or ac adaptor not available try to check batt with another cam if possible to test batt. if still unit doesnt turn on using a fully charged, diff batt, or using an ac adaptor,unit would reuire service. hope this info helps.thanks:)
The type or memory in the camera requires a charge in order to store data. So if you have any pictures on the camera it will constantly be pulling a charge from the battery until the battery is completely drained. If you have this problem even with a brand new battery it's possible that the memory may be corrupt and needs to be cleared. To do this just remove the battery and press both buttons several times each to make sure that the camera is completely discharged, replace the battery with a brand new battery and try again. If that fails I'd get in touch with customer service for a replacement.
it is fixable but best thing to do is take it back to where you got it for a replacement. Or send it in to Polaroid the lens gears are stuck and the zoom motor sounds like it has gone out. If you have no sucess doing that then let me know I repair these all the time.
Did you try calling Canon tech support or returning to retailer if the camera is really not functioning properly this soon after purchase, I'd try returning it once all troubleshooting issues have not resolved the issue.
