SOURCE: camera will not power on


The battery contacts are dirty.

The batteries are inserted wrongly.

You have a problem with the lens mechanism.

Shake camera and listen for anything rattling around. If metal it could short anything out.

SOURCE: camera will not power on

sir this is my solution
try to refresh it by detaching your battery and attach it back. charge it for the time that the battery come in full charge and turn it on. just be sure that your new battery was compatible or not high voltage to accept it on your camera. if not, it must be the hardware inside the camera was broken or damage. hope that helps!

SOURCE: Blinking green light, lens not coming out, not able to take pics

I had the same issue with both my D550 and D560 that I just picked up. If you are using normal AA batteries, change to Lithium. Now both my camera's are working. I used to be able to use AA's but for some reason, the ones I have picked up recently were not strong enough. Worth a try at only about $10 for a 4 pack at your local Walgreens or CVS.

SOURCE: my camera wont turn on when i try the amber light

The 3 beeps probably means your lens has failed.
I would guess the lens extends only about half way.

I was quoted $US80 for replacement.

I shall probably give it to my 2 year old as a toy and save up for a better camera.

Camera wont turn on/off

I went to another problem, knowing my camera was stepped on, I messed around with moving the lens part around, barley moving it, and then I tried holding the on/off button and the button to take the pics with, and then put in new batteries and it turned on. I would suggest doing that.

Your camera is set at twilnight mode which has the flash suppressed and you won't be able to turn it on because of the fixed setting of twilnight mode to get the proper result of the picture. Due to the mode setting requirement, a shakey hand icon and no flash icon will show. If you press the flash mode button, it beeps. The twilnight setting has a low shutter speed, i.e. the shutter opens longer to allow more lights in, therefore it shows recording to let you know that the shutter is still open, and any moment of the camera will result in a blurred picture.
Now, check your camera mode dial and turn it back to the 'green' camera and see if you can get the flash to fire.

Focusing Still Photos with SD870 IS

If you check page 45 in the manual, you'll see that the orange light during the half press indicates that the flash is turned on. A single beep means that the camera is having difficulty getting a "focus lock" (usually when shooting in low light conditions). See page 100 of the manual for suggestions on how to improve the chances for getting a well-focused picture.

My batteries died in my pink i733 and when it shut down the "zoom lense" did not recede. i put fresh batteries in it but all that happens is that the green light flashes. it wont come on or...

This can sometimes be fixed if you remove the batteries over night and allow the camera to sit and discharge it should correct this problem. hope this helps.

Camera wont stay on, please help

Possible that the Lens Mechanism is out of sync. If its still within warranty just bring it in and have it serviced. If not I may be able to help you out but it requires dismantling the camera,..

If any one knows a quicker and easier way maybe they can post it here But as far as experience goes thats what happened with mine,

Hope this helps
