Is this a regular thing? My sequence:

1> Get fresh batteries, preferably Nickel Metal Hydride rather than disposable alkalines. These will provide approximately 1.2v fresh, as opposed to 1.5v for alkaline, which we'll test next if needed. If this solves the problem, then you can be sure that the original batteries aren't cutting it. Perhaps they aren't holding a charge properly anymore... in working with this situation with a number of electronic devices, I am continuously amazed at just how many people I find who think rechargeables are like 'forever batteries'.

2> If that didn't solve the problem, we're not out of the battery realm yet. Now try it with fresh alkaline batteries to see if the extra 0.3v gives it a kick in the pants. If so, that would concern me that the camera is not playing nice at voltages that it should be perfectly functional with, and I would consider bringing that situation up with your service center.

3> If it still does this no matter what batteries are used, then the camera could be having an issue with the SD card having a filesystem error. Giving the SD a good Low-Level Formatting might get everything back on track (retrieve all files via an external SD card reader if necessary, first!). If you do the formatting via computer rather than on-camera, make sure you use the appropriate filesystem (some cameras, even a few recent models, do not like to use anything other than FAT16) and even then, if your camera has the ability, format again on the camera just to make sure any filesystem issues are taken care of and necessary support directories are created.

4> If after all that it's still not behaving, and your camera's firmware is older than v1.02, you might try a firmware upgrade.

5> If still no go, it's service center time.

Camera shutting off when trying to take a picture?


Maybe you should think about taking it to a camera shop or something to have a look at because the wires inside may be damaged or faulty. Hope you get it working again!

The following blog outlines some simple repair options for a lens error. But please first try the listed Fix #2. I heard that fix particularly works well for a camera who's battery had run down with the lens open. Please post back here with a follow up comment if any of the fixes work:
