Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

HI, my Canon XH A1 stopped suddenly working. The odd thing is that it works in VCR mode but not as a camera, I forgot to turn it off today and then transported it, in it's safe bag, when I took it out (it was outside in this temperature) it wasn't working any longer. I thought it was the battery, but I recharged the batttery at home and it's still not working. What could it be?

SOURCE: New Rechargable Batteries Die after A Couple of Pictures

This model is renowned for poor battery life. Some people say using the CRV3 battery lasts a lot longer but my advice is to buy NimH batteries with at least 2600mah. Some Nimh are only 700mah and obviously will last less than a third the time of a 2600. Keeping the use of the LCD to a minimum will increase battery life and using the flash puts a tremendous drain on the batteries so if you can do without the flash switch it off. Combine these tips with a set of 2600mah batteries and I'll guarantee you'll be pleasantly surprised. As a sideline I always have a good laugh when I see an Olympics opening at night or a firework display and all you can see is thousands of flashes going off which the majority only reach about 12 feet maximum and the parade being shot is some 300 feet away.

SOURCE: camera will not go on

If you push the power button and do not see any signs of life at all, it is most likely a blown fuse. In this model disassembly is required to replace the fuse, and it is soldered onto the main power board. If there are signs of life, but the camera does not function there are other explanations. Jammed lenses are the most common cause of power-on failure. Check with your manufacturer for recalls and warranty service information. Failing that you can find a repair provider online.

SOURCE: Canon PowerShot A510 "change the batteries"

Take a look at the following recall advisory for the A530/A540.

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=12914&keycode=2111&id=28800

Look closely at the second picture. Does the spring on your battery door stick out and overlap/touch the metal battery contact plate as shown in the second picture? If so, affix a small piece of tape to the contact plate between the plate and the spring to insulate the plate from the spring. Make sure that the spring should not be able to directly touch the plate, and is shielded by the tape.

Note that currently Canon has not included the A510 in the recall, but if you experience this problem, this fix should correct it.

SOURCE: Cannon Digital Rebel xt died will not turn on , recharged nothing

Hello,

I think you have a faulty fuse (there are three in total) inside the camera. The fuse might have blown because of bent pin for the memory cards or a faulty cf card. In wich case, you have to repair it yourself, there are pages on the web that describe what you have to do (search for fuse and 350d), or send it to a canon service center ( they will change the complete motherboard because the fuses are soldered to the mainboard and they won't change them)

Sorry budddy

Why won't my Canon XH A1 power up


The most likely cause is a component failure in the power circuit. This can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be looked at by a qualified technician. Here is a link to a repair shop that should be able to help you.

Firewire worked once but not anymore...Canon XHA1


Solution? Maybe, but PC's vary greatly. Pass it on if it works for you. If Win-XP. Device manager. Un-install IEE1394. Close & Restart. Let the system restore the 1394 then try to reconnect the unit, cable to the PC first, then to the powered down camera. Power up the cam. What are you using to ingest? I recommed http://scenalyzer.com.

Check your little lock and standby lever at the back of your hand strap, its likely positioned between standby and lock.
