Re: powershot g3

The battery is probably worn out, or the charger failed. More often it is the battery that is no longer able to charge and needs to be replaced.

The only way to absolutely know which is defective is to try the charger and a new battery, unless you have a DVM and a load tester to be able to test the charger.

Canon PowerShot SX110 IS Digital Camera charge fully battery after one pics show low battery sign

This is probably a battery issue and not a camera issue. Batteries with low output or low power can be due to them sitting and not being used for long periods of time. This can affect their ability to get a full charge as their "memory" is reduced regardless of what the charge light indicator displays. Even taking a battery that has been sitting for a long period and charging it to full charge, might only have limited power. Some of these can be returned to almost full capacity, but it takes multiple, repeated, alternating, charges and power deletions to rebuild the memory. In many cases, however, the battery just needs to be replaced.

The flash of my sx30 doesn't work, when i open the flash it was detected that the flash is open but the the problem is when i'm going to shoot even i press my shutter it doesn't take any...

hion flash defuser unit up position, it doesn't allow to take picture. This means technically flash circuit is continuously sending charging signal causes blocking shutter release.( but not all of model, it is depend on model of camera.). Like this case, it is obvious that either a fuse brown or charge controlling pcb defective. I recommend you send to your local repair shop or canonUSA. They would charge around $45 to165 depend on what they really want to charge.

Alternative Charging Methods???

Your out of luck. This method of charging is considered (nowadays) unprofessional. Thats why you rarely see manufactures such as Canon/Sony/Nikon (the big 3) use this - and company's like Kodak will. Yes, it is convenient, BUT, battery chargers are prone to go out. They work very hard, and get very hot, adding stress to other components. There is no such thing as a bullet proof charger. Many (quality) manufactures know this and avoid this added hassle. See, if the charger goes out then it's likely to disable the rest of the camera and it's not worth the risk.
