Question about Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera
The camera cut off after the icon flashes and the camera doesn't operate. I put new batteries in and had the same results. They are lithium good quality batteries
I am not sure if this will address your problem but it is worth trying.
Make sure the record/playback mode switch is not in an intermediate position. Push it firmly all the way up. Also ensure that the mode button is not between clickstops. Then try to operate the camera
If that does not help, try the following. Take all the batteries out, including the lithium battery which keeps the clock going. Also take the SD memory card out. Leave the camera sit overnight.
Obtain new batteries - conventional alkaline AAs and a lithium type CR1220.
Next day, clean all the contacts for the AA batteries with a cotton-bud and contact cleaner or isopropyl alcohol. Let dry. Then insert the new lithium battery. Next insert the new AAs and try to turn the camera on.
If it works, insert the SD card. If it does not work then there is probably an internal problem and it should be serviced.
