Question about Canon IXUS Cameras
Power issues are common in anything electronic, including digital cameras.
A digital camera can fail to power up for a number of reasons, but fortunately, they're often related to the batteries, making them minor in nature.
If your digital camera won't turn on, check several things to diagnose the problem.
It is common to try to turn on your digital camera, only to see that it will not power up. A highly likely cause of this issue is the power in the battery or batteries. If you've used the batteries for an extended period of time, mistakenly left the camera on or are using old batteries, they may simply be dead. Remove the batteries from your digital camera and test them in another electronic device, such as a remote control. If the second device won't turn on, the batteries may need to be replaced or recharged. b> Battery Position b> Though it sounds like a mistake that is too simple to make, it's easy to insert the batteries incorrectly into a digital camera, especially if it's new and you're unfamiliar with it. When the batteries are put in backward, the digital camera will not power up, leading you to assume there may be a graver problem. If the camera will not turn on, open the battery compartment and verify that they're in correctly. If not, rotate them appropriately, close the cover and try to power up the camera. b> Lens Track Problem b> Depending on the camera bag you use, the camera may occasionally and accidentally get turned on while it's in the bag. When this happens, the lens may begin to extend outward from the camera, but get blocked by the camera bag. All this can happen completely unbeknownst to you, which can lead to the camera not turning on the next time you need it. In some cases, the lens can get knocked off its track, which can result in your camera's power light illuminating once the camera is turned on, but the lens not emerging from the camera body. In more severe cases, the lens' repeated attempts to emerge while stuck in your camera bag can burn out the small motor that operates the lens. When this is the case, take your camera to a repair shop and have a technician look at, and fix, the problem. b> Defective b> Although not likely, there's always a chance that when you buy a new digital camera and load it with fresh batteries, it won't turn on. If this is the case, the camera may be defective in some way. Because new cameras are covered under warranty at many shops, take the camera back to the shop and explain the issue to a technician. Hope it helps.
