Camera won't turn on
If none of the suggested causes
helps resolve the issue, then I suggest you bring it in for repair.
Please check the following things when the camera does not turn on.
Possible causes and how to handle them
1. The camera is not on
Turn on the camera. (Operation procedure varies
between camera models. Please refer to the camera user guide supplied
with your camera.)
2. The rechargeable battery is not fully charged.
Make sure the rechargeable battery is fully
charged. If the battery has not been used for an extended period of
time, or if it is being used for the first time, it may not be fully
charged. In cases like this, fully charge the battery and then discharge
it completely in the camera several times to bring the battery back to
its normal performance.
The rechargeable battery's capacity diminishes the
longer the battery is used. When the battery consumption becomes
quicker, the battery life may be at its end. Replace the battery with a
3. The battery terminals are dirty.
When camera does not operate with a brand-new
alkaline battery (for cameras that use AA-size batteries) or with a
fully charged rechargeable battery, the terminals may be dirty.
Polish the terminals with a dry cloth and make sure the terminals are
clean. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or similar
matter, this may cause poor contact and power may not be fully supplied
to the camera.
Also, polish the battery charger terminals with a
dry cloth before charging the battery. If the terminals are covered with
oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor contact and
the battery may not be fully charged.
4. The batteries are not installed correctly (for cameras that use AA-size batteries)
For cameras that use AA-size batteries, multiple
batteries are used in one camera. Make sure the direction of each
battery matches the direction indicated on the camera. If any of the
batteries are improperly inserted, the camera will not operate.
5. The battery cover or CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely closed
Most cameras have a lock mechanism on the battery
cover. The camera will not turn on if the battery cover is not locked or
securely closed, or if the CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely
closed. Make sure these covers are securely closed.
If your camera does not operate after checking
each of these things, or if there is any visible damage on your camera
that could be the cause, please contact the nearest Service Center.
