Canon A95 gone dead

Using my Canon A95 recently - took 20 second video clip then switched camera off. Next time I tried to switch it on the camera remained dead - no power. Replaced batteries with previously re-charged ones which have worked before - no joy. Bought new set of batteries - sill no joy. All covers (battery/flash card) are properly closed, so anyone got any ideas?

Re: Canon A95 gone dead

I ain't so lucky I'm in the UK too!!!! Generally speaking the cost pf packing, shipping repair, at any level is well on the way to the price of the next more recent higher specification device. Judging by the way the Megapixels go up by the week seemingly, settling for a replacement camera is usually the best option. I had a cheap[old] Fuji come my way because it had gone blurred and blue - sure sign of a CCD failure as this was at some time the subject of a recall for the problem I checked out Fuji Their response was to say no longer repaired but has a 1/3 off a new camera when I quoted a reference number. That seems to be the way to go.

Canon customer support will tell you what exactly what is going on[or not] I suspect a circuit failure- if the camera is out of warranty then a new camera will probably bt the answer.

My batteries went dead and camera shut off. Now I

if the camera wont turn on remove the memory card and make sure your pictures are transfered. Try using regular disposable batteries. Also when trying to turn it on try holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If it still doesnt turn on coud be a broken switch connection.

Canon PowerShot A95 will no longer power up

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't power on. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try. Pay particular attention to the small contact switches on the battery and flash card doors. Also inspect the battery contact prongs to make sure they haven't been bent to the point that they're not springing the battery to make contact with the battery door.

Memory card problem - video

I'm not sure how to fix the memory card, perhaps you can purchase a memory card reader (usually USB, runs about 10-20 dollars) that you can transfer your photos and/or video to your computer with.
As for the memory card itself, many older cameras do not have the capability to recognize and save properly to large capacity memory cards.

There are things called firmware updates, which can help the problems in some cases, you would have to go to Canon's website and find out if you have a firmware update for your camera (I didn't see what kind of camera you have, so if you can reply with that I can do some digging).

Let me know if this helps or if you need more information!

White streaks on all photos but not video

Your camera has a defective CCD imager. Please return the camera prepaid to Canon in New Jersey, they are replacing the CCD at no charge to the customer. This is a known issue and is resolved by many of the manufacturers using the Sony CCD element in their cameras at no charge. Good Luck my friend. Joe Weibel
