Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

No image appearing

I was re-charging the camera battery, when the driver called. It was time to leave for the airport. I was not able to put the battery back on the camera. I arrived at my destination and did not use the camera. After 10 days, when I needed a camera, I realised I had not put on the battery. I did that, and it is fully charged. But no image appears. Help!

It is likely the battery has gone flat again. Rechargeable batterys do go flat if not used promptly Or if you left it charging all that time -destroyed it self. Go for a new battery.

My camera takes pictures which look fine on the monitor, but the captured image is covered with horizontal jagged lines. Any ideas what may be occuring .... help please?


It is an error in the camera as the picture/image caught into the memorry is having some noise when reproduced.
remove the battery for some time (10 min) and put it back without the memory , then after some time remove battery and insert the memory. Iff possible put the camera on charge for some hours .Also put the camera on continuosuly . check if the fault has changed, if so some capacitor is weak and on charge gets rectified.

Laptop turns off as soon as power cord is removed. I was in the library last night and had it plugged in for awhile. When I went to leave I unplugged it from the wall and the whole computer just *******....


It appears that the battery is not charging. Simply reseat the battery, remove it and put it back, If its still not charging, you may try a another battery. If the other battery is still not charging, you may have to call your laptop manufacturer for motherboard replacement. Hope this will help you.

Camera keeps loosing the time and date settings. When turning the camera on the lens does not open, then a screen asking to set the date and time settings appears - once date reset the camera works...


have you check the settings for time and date have you saved it? You can also try to remove the cam battry for 2 mins. then put it back in then turn on the camera and then after few secs. turn it off, then see if the issue persist.

Battery keeps going dead - second time around


Okay, well depending on the batteries it has different amounts of time you should charge it for, the packet of the rechargeable batteries should tell you this. Check this first because you may be charging it the incorrect amount it needs.
Ask in store you brought it from if you aren't sure.

No matter how long I charge my Kodak V1073, it just says insufficient batter when I turn it on. I'm lucky to take one picture before the battery dies.


If you just recently purchased this camera, please contact or call the Kodak help line. You may have received a battery that won't charge. Batteries need a charge at least once a month to keep them at maximum preformance. Leaving the camera battery uncharged for long periods of time can cause the battery to fail sooner than it should. If you do need to set aside your camera for a long period of time, put a full charge to it and then remove it from the camera. Most cameras (video cameras included), even if they are turned off, can trickle the charge down on your battery.

Camera would not turn on


try removing the battery for 24 hours and allow the battery to charge for that long as well unless you charge the battery in the camera with a docking station then just leave it out also take a good look at the lcd when you try and turn it on see if the image is really dark but their is still a image. one this that I have noticed while working on casio is that a lens error can cause the lcd to be very dark and you can barley see a image but it is there so it causes you to thing the camera is dead. If you do see a image then the problem lies inside and needs to be serviced but if you don't then it lies in the power source. ie battery or power circuit of the camera. after the battery shows charged have it tested with a ohm meter it can help determine if it is a good battery. you can have it checked sometimes at radio shack or a place called batteries plus if you do not have one. I hope this helps out I know it can be frustrating but it happens. good luck.

Battery not charging


The same thing happened to my Casio Exilim EXZ75 camera. Whenever I tried to charge my battery, the battery charger light just keeps blinking. And it didn't stop. So after a period of time doing the same thing over again I called the casio customer service and they were very friendly. I told them my situation and they asked me a few questions,like my number, where I live, the serial number on the bottom of my camera and they told me that it was very common of lithaunim batteries to have a red light blinking. So they sent me a new battery for free. Thats right no extra charge and now my camera works like it did the first time I bought it. Casio customer service number: 1-800-435-7732. The most important thing about them giving you a new battery is your camera's serial number. I mean they just can't give a free battery to just anyone. Hope I've been a great help to anyone.

It wont turn on


Hello

First, you must be certain that your battery pack is still good.

You have to clean all connecting point (between the camera and the batterry) with a dry clean cloth inside the battery pack compartment.

Another think to check, is the date and time battery (dime size battery located inside the battery pack compartment) to remove it, slide the battery case out and change it. Since the battery is install at the factory, it verry possible that there is no more power. At the end of your owner manual, you will find, before troubleshooting section, the way to remove it, it verry easy, no force need it.

A deffective flash card can also cause the problem. Remove also the flash card and replace it by a new one or another one that you have.

When the battery is fully charge, install it along whith the new time and date battery. Leave the camera alone for a couple of hour in order to let the board get some refresment. Try to put it on, if it not work, slide in and out the battery, couple of time, close the compartment and try again.

In many cases, the camera will start and you will have to put the time and date, if the battery (time and date) was warn out. Make sure that your screen is on. You ready to go. :)
