Question about Canon Wordtank G50

Open Question

Turns on and off unpredictably

The batteries seem somewhat loose in the battery container. The machine has a tendency to turn on and off as a result. I'm currently jamming a little aluminum foil in to hold the batteries in place, but it's not a good fix.

If no one has a fix, do you have suggestions on where to get it repaired, preferably in the Boston or Chicago area?

Call Canon tech support. It's free support and you may end up coming out cheaper by upgrading your camera through their Canon Loyalty program than having it repaired.

SOURCE: Stuck battery/ScanDisk card

Unfortunately, you have to force the battery door (very carefully) to open it, and find what is wrong with it.

It is more likely that when closed the battery door, it was forced and it slided out of one guide channels.

You need to practice a little bit before to try it with force (genlty but with firm force), but the only way to do it is slide the button to open it, and at the same time slide to the side and pull the battery door, everything at the same time. Try it until you are able to open it.

Using any kind of tool (such a plastic pry tool, a small screwdriver, etc) to force will leave marks in the housing, and it's very possible that the plastic locking tabs will break, causing that you will open it, but unable to close properly again.

Best regards,

SOURCE: Battery door latch broke off body of Canan A590

The same thing happened to me this week. I called Canon Canada directly and asked to order the part (The battery compartment door). They gave me a phone number to call and I was able to order the replacement door for about $8.00 + $10-$12 shipping. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I am missing the peice that holds the battery in

You could try wedging something between the battery and the side of the compartment to hold it in place. Leave a tab so you can pull it out.

My car was jump starting another car and we suppect the must be something wrong on computer control unit

The battery run down as a result of the processes of jump starting. The cars providing jump power should have a strong battery to attain success. Second, the car with jump power should be turned on extensively during the jump starting. Later, the power provider vehicle should continue to perform to regain the battery deffect during jump start. Usually, old batteries performing jump start may be depleted completely of capacity. Contact an auto electrician to ascertian the remaining battery functionality to avoid an unpredictable malfunction.

Toshiba L675 won't turn on sometimes. If I take out the battery and put it back in the machine turns on

Could be a loose connection or dirt/debris in the connectors. Chech the metal connectors in the laptop and battery are clean and not loose. .

See if it turns on when you take the battery out and plug into the mains. If it doesn't then the battery is not at fault and you have a PSU problem

I had a bad water pump and radiator and replaced both and also the thermostat and battery now my car wont start but the lights are on till i try to turn it and they dim somewhat i had a clicking at one...

check your battery again and especially the terminals. it just sounds like you got a bum battery or a very loose connection. check in the terminals too. corrosion builds up in there and doesnt allow for good contact resulting in this very problem. happy holidays

Have a front loading washing machine, it is making a horrible noise when it turns

Either something has gotten between the inner and outer drums or the inner drum support bearing has gone bad. Almost complete tear-down to fix it. Lift up and down on the inner drum (when machine is off) to see if it seems somewhat loose and makes a clunking sound when you do so. If it does, that indicates a failed shaft bearing.

Initial gm-510 gps has intermittent gps signal and loose antenna

well a loose antenna can cause intermittent connections, but so can a low battery, despite it being plugged into a power source. Make sure battery is fully chatrged before use. I would suspect the battery chage first. Even get a new battery

Harley 03 Ultra overcharging, 16 volts

14v is not overcharging. 16v is pushing it. I'm with the regulator opinion, but I would also load test your battery. If the charging system thinks your battery is low it will try to compensate by putting out max voltage, putting additional strain on the regulator, which in turn overcharges the battery... creates a vicious cycle. Is the regulator in a spot where it gets quite warm? They have a tendency to overcharge when hot. If that is the case, try relocating it or directing more airflow over it.

I have a navman f20 that has suddenly stopped working just wont switch on?? it was working perfectly yesterday then today when i went to use it it just wont turn on if i plug it in to charge instead...

I had the same problem, turns out that it was a flat battery, which was caused by the usb socket on the gps. The socket was loose and not allowing the battery to be charged.

The usb socket on mine is now not attached as it came completely loose. You may have to get a Tech to resolder it for you.

Phone turns off its own

I have a N95-3 and have found that the problem seems to be a combination of Loose battery and faulty or flaky headphone jack. I have tried wedging the top right side of the battery with a few thicknesses of 1/4" wide paper between the battery and the battery slot. This seems to push the connectors on the left side a little tighter and reduces the shut down incidences. If the battery is loose just handling the phone and especially pushing the side buttons or squeezing the case will disconnect the battery and shut the phone off. Sometimes the shutdown is immediate and other times the display will slowly fade to black and the phone needs to be restarted. If the battery is really loose the restart button will not give the jolt start feel and you'll be forced to open up the battery case and fiddle to get the battery making better contact.Hope this helps.
