Sounds as if it needs a repair but get a quote first as it may be better to purchase new

Remove batteries and clean contacts of battery's host (include cover). Check as well that contacts are not bended and didn't lost their springiness. Good luck!

Try this: with the battery installed and battery door open, take a pencil, fine tip screwdriver, or anything long and skinny and push the tip of it into the little nub circled in the picture here. There's a spring inside that little nub... keep the spring depressed and try to turn on the camera. If it works, then either a small piece of plastic broke off the battery door or the nub got broken/pushed in too far for the battery door to trigger it. Try using a dab of hot glue to keep the nub pushed into the down position.

SOURCE: no battery life

Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some brands may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Walmart sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

SOURCE: Change the batteries message even with new NIMH RShack batteries

The solution is to change the small 'date/time' battery. You can have the regular batteries as charged as you like, it won't make any difference. The tiny date/time battery is in the same compartment as the regular batteries, on the opposite side of the hinge. Extract it with a fingernail, it is situated on the left hand wall of the battery compartment (when the camera is inverted and the compartment open).

Testimonial: "I don't even knew about the this date-time battery. I will buy a new one and replace it. I am pretty sure this will solve my problem. Thanks"

SOURCE: when i turn on, it says lens error, restart camera

Try one of these two fixes, if they dont work for you follow the link below for further troubleshooting.

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html


Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
Fix #2: If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 (for older Canon's) means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time

Camera wont turn on


I actually fixed mine... please read all instructions b4 making actions...
i dont know how but ill tell u wat i did. (brace urself.. i will rambling a bit with unnecessary details, but it may help u... SO
i went to target... where i bought the camera and

1. bought a new battery b/c other forums said its the battery thats deffective.... This didnt help because i put the new battery in and it did the same thing.

2. i cleaned the new battery with a q-tip (the 3 metal parts.. and the inside of the camera where the metal parts connect) This did not work either

3. Clicked it to FAVORITES cuz i knew it was able to review pictures... i clicked menu and i reformatted the Month day and year and time (because it said it was wrong)... that didnt help...

4. finally... i decided this may work like the iPod.. so i held down the ON/OFF button while holding down the Time/Ascending Folder button (its in the circular panel where OK button is ... it is the button under OK on the circular panel) ... and eventually that green blinking light kept blinking... and all of a sudden i the monitor was showing picture again .. i took a picture of myself... deleted it... went back to camera mode... turned off the camera turned it back on... and its back to normal....

4- 1/2. I but back in my old battery... and it works like normal

IN CONCLUSION.... maybe its not ur battery. .so b4 u go out and spend 29.99 onn a new rechargable... follow my instructions and maybee it will work for u too!!

Camera wont turn on


Very odd that both cameras would stop working at the same time, has someone else abused them?

Removeing the batterys for a while is a good enought reset, check the battery connectors and contact your dealer if they both have warranty you will get them repaired or replaced for free. other than that I can recommend you a repair man if you provide me the city you live in.

So your power shot has gone south. Shame because they are really good cameras. Unless it is a very ex[pensive model repair is never cost effective.

Camera doesn't turn on or do anything


I had a similar problem. Mt battery was dead but showed a charge when I put it in the camera. See if you can borrow a battery from another owner or camera shop and try it.

Canon Powershot S410: cannot turn it on


personally, I would ring Canon and ask for some idea of what might be the problem, and go from there. I assume it is out of guarantee, otherwise I would certainly have it back to them under guarantee. However, it can cost more than a new one to get repaired in some cases if out of guarantee. It could be as simple as needing some contacts cleaning of grease in the battery housing - try cleaning this first is one of the most obvious.

PROBLEM WITH PENTAX OPTIO E10


It could be that the battery can't hold a charge anymore.

You will probably have to get a new battery.

Make sure the camera is working fine and that youre able to take pictures with the power cord plug in. If that works it isn't the camera, it's the battery.

Black screen


This is a CCD sensor ( see pic below from Canon camera with same pixalage and specs ) problem : outputting too much noise or nothing at all so the sensor must be replaced ( not a big job but ha sto be done by someone with experience and the right parts ). Fuji will repair free of charge , if I am not mistaken, so you need to contact your Fuji agent .b16210b.jpg
