My dad had the exact same prob and I found a solution that worked! What you do is you take you memory card out and you slot it into your computer (if you do not have the slot on you computer try you printer, if not again try asking around see if anybody else does) go into my computer computer and click on the name of the memory card slot look at all of the images and save any images that are not marked by a red X, and then when you have them all transferred delete all the pictures that do have a red X on the memory card. When finished take the card out of the computer and put it back in the the camera and it should start up. If not re-charge the battery one more time if that doesn't work well sorry cant help!

Once again I don't have a solution, but my Canon A95 has also just failed to power up after it was perfect the previous day. Tried new charged batteries and even a new set of alkaline AA's. Contacted Canon who said it sounded like a hardware fault and sent me a list of repairers here in the UK. Found that minimum service charge would be almost as much as a decent 5mp replacement camera. The camera is 2 years and 8 months old and only came with 2 year warranty. Ironically the shop where I bought it now gives 3 year warranty! However, they wouldn't stretch mine any further. I am encouraged by the fact that Ozie says their cameras are over three years old and Canon seem to be helping. I will now contact Canon UK again for their views on your story.

We, and a relative have the same camera and both have recently failed. We have returned one to Canon and they have replaced it advising that there appears to be a common problem with this model. We have now returned the second camera and are waiting on their response (either repair or replace). Both cameras were over 3 years old. Hope this helps.

Our camera just stopped powering on. We have


Here are the steps for the no power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)

Camere jammed and wont turn off and retract


Install new batteries.....really! They will just up and die when your camera's on and then there's nothing else you can do. If you have rechargeables....swap them out for any fresh batteries just to close your camera...then put your recharged rechargeables back in. Or put them back in and recharge on your camera dock.

Batteries


You can try switching over to 2500 mAh Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries and you will see a difference.
Digital cameras with zoom lens need more power than what can be supplied by ordinary batteries.

Brand new batteries and its tellin me to change them!


please check if the batteries u used before have leaked any oil inside the camera. this damages the metal strip that shorts and two batteries. if there is no damage then tat portion s safe.
the small battery inside battery compartment is for camera date. dont disturb it.
after changing new batteries tha camera works for few time and then shuts down means your camera CCD s consuming lot of power. use a camera adapter to confirm that the camera works in normal power atleast.
even after this. camera shuts off itself. take it to service centre soon.
