    Should also mention that I removed the battery and memory card, loightly dried with a hair dryer and have left it to air out for about a day and a half now. When re-inserting the battery it the camera now does absolutely nothing. Yet it shows itself charging (light blinks) when camera is plugged into charger.

SOURCE: Battery EXTREMELY Exhausted

As the other person says Nimh rechargable batteries are the best....Also somewhere in the menu system you will find that you need to define which type of battery you are using, this may be the cause...Nikon UK have an excellent after care team if all else fails.

SOURCE: dropped camera while it was

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

There is a capacitor dump that you can try.

Remove the batteries, wait 5-10 minutes.
With the batteries out, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds or so.
Put the batteries back in and your camera will start over (re-boot). You will know if it worked if you have to reset the date. But if that lens is really stuck you may be out of luck. The cost to repair it will exceed the cost of a new camera.

SOURCE: The camera was exposed to

Hello. Please follow these 5 easy steps:

1. The most important of all, DO NOT try to start your camera.
2. Loosen the battery cover, remove the battery and put it somewhere to dry.
3. Wipe the camera immediately with a paper towel or anything that absorbs water well.
4. Use a powerful vacuum to absorb the water droplets which you can't reach with a towel (such as those inside the case).
5. Put the battery and the camera in a bowl of uncooked rice by covering it completely. The rice absorbs the moisture from the air very well so that it will help drying your camera. Keep it there for 24 hours or so.


I hope it helps!
If you have any other questions, please leave a reply!
Thank you for using FixYa.

My acer 5315 turns itself off occasionally with no warning. looked at the power settings , no problem there


Is it overheating, and then automatically shutting itself off, to prevent the heat from causing damage?

Turn it off. Disconnect the AC power. Remove the battery.
Buy a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job" to remove dust from inside it,
because a layer of dust is acting like an insulating blanket, i.e., retaining excess heat.

Computer automatically powers down with out warning


It could be overheating, and shutting itself down, to avoid heat-related damage.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC adapter.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed air, and give your computer a "blow-job" -- shooting compressed air everywhere "inside" your laptop, to remove dust.

The dust is acting as an insulator, preventing your computer's fans from cooling itself.

Or, take your laptop to a qualified computer technician, for more trouble-shooting.

Computer shutsdown unexpectedly


It sounds like it is overheating. Take the side off the case and see if your CPU fan works. Replace any fans that do not work or feel loose. And while you are at it, take a can of air and blow the dirt out of it.
Leaving it off overnight will not prevent it from overheating. A computer can overheat in a matter of seconds under the right circumstances.

Batter won't hold it's charge if left in the camera overnight


Apparently you shouldn't leave the battery in the camera when you're not using it - the on/off switch doesn't turn the thing off completely. Weird!

Camera stays on


this sounds like a systemic problem. (responding to 3 different inquiries with similar complaints)
the light stays on when writing to mem to warn/prevent you from losing images which happens from premature power down actions.
in this case you have signs that the mother boards are bad. call canon for advice,but i am sure they will instruct you to ship them for service. aside from damaging your camera, it does not sound like a user interaction issue.
good luck

Camera was dropped, lens will not retract, when on/off button is pressed the initial screen and sound appear but then the camera makes a kind of warning sound and E18 appears in the lower left hand co


Perhaps the lens got bumped (if the camera was one when it was dropped) and is out of place. Mine did the same and I sent it in (it was within warranty) and Canon fixed it.

My camcorder is turning off by itself.


For Models: CC4252, CC4352, CC4362, CC4392, CC4393 If your camcorder is left in Record-Pause or Play-Pause for several minutes, it turns off automatically to prevent wear on your tape. Set the CAMERA/OFF/VCR switch to OFF and then to CAMERA or VCR to turn it back on.
