    My daughter just replaced the batteries in her A550 and it won't turn on. Completely dead. We changed the batteries...no power. This is the second issue we have had with this camera. It has been returned once because of the "lens error" issue. I have the same camera and have had the problem with the lens opening and shutting but a little tap (more like a hit) seems to solve it. Would not recommend this camera.

If the batteries leaked, it could be due to corrosion on the contacts.  You could try using a pencil eraser to rub the contacts to clean off any possible corrosion.  Hope that helps...

I have a 2004 Kawasaki zzr 600 that does not keep the charge longer than 2 days. What is causing this problem


hi, you probably have a "almost dead" batery, but in order to properly check, proceed as folows:
1 - give the batery a full charge
2 - disconect both cables (+) and (-) from batery
3 - check charge and see if batery holds it - a good batery must keep 12,7 to 13,2 volts for a very long period
If after this test,considering that batery is ok, then chek your wiring loom for ground losses
good luck

It wont crank like not getting power


ok sounds like you have a dead battery
1) if turns but slowly:

posible causes:
1.1) old dead batery/
or underchaged battery >check altenator in this case

did you leave your headlights turnt on and drained the battery of its charge?if so get a jump start and then run the car for 30-45 mins to rechagre the battery

if you have at your disposal anothere batery that you know has a good charge
try starting your car with that batery(not using jumper cables) hook it up!
if the slugish turn over is still there

1.2) check your wire conections for corision this means completly disconecting 1 lead at a time (only on one end of that lead)and cleaning them with a wire brush or some sand paper.
(on the battery and the starter also the ground strap conection to the frame.)

2) WONT TURN OVER AT ALL:
posible causes:
2.0) dead battery >try charging it>get a jump start
2.1) blown turnkey igntion fuse
2.2) blow fuse for main har nes wires
2.3) bad starter
2.4) corosion on wire conection (most often the batery terminals)
2.5) starter replaced and hooked up incorectly.

2.6) alram system preventing the turnkey igntion system from getting power

The laptop is dead.


It does sound like your cmos battery. It is located on your system board. If your confident you can take the laptop apart and get the details from the battery and then goto a pc shop and buy a new one if not take the laptop to the shop and they can replace it for you.

Will start and run fo a short distance and cut off. I had the battery checked and charged and it tested ok. could it be the alternater?


Could be..... the batery is just used for starting, once the engine is running it pulls electric power from the altinator, if the altinator which also charges the batery, is not working power is pulled from the battery, and when the battery goes dead, the car does too. When the Car turns off, do you then need to jump it to start it? if so you could be pretty convinced that the altinator is the issue

What could be dragging my battery down after 2 days of not starting it?


Lots of stuff. An after market alarm,malfuntioning radio,bad battery,bad door pin switch for the interior lights. Best thing to do is charge the battery if it's in fact good, thenunhook the negative battery cable & connect a test light from the disconnected cable to the negative battery post. If it's a nice bright light it's got a draw. If it's really dim,that's the memory for the computer,anti-theft,radio memory. I mean dim,like barely lit! That's ok. If you don't have a test light disconnect the negative cable & touch it to the negative battery post a few times & if there's a big spark,there's a draw. If there's a draw & there's nothing on in the car,like an interior light,etc, than start with the inside the car fuse box & while holding the open door pin switch test each fuse for power. If anything has power that shouldn't with the key off that's where to start. Do the same for the under the hood box as well but disconnect the hood light. If you are using the Viper alarm system,junk the system. That alarm causes your problem & in alot of cases a fire.

Canon Powershot A550 flash will not work it just blinks on & off?


Hi
There are several things that could cause this. 

1- Check the battery door indicator switch under the battery door and beside the memory card slot. Is the little black switch damaged or missing? Try pressing down gently using a pen it with the door open and then press the power button. Does it turn on?

2- The fuse has blown and needs to be replaced. Offhand I don't recall where it is on the SD750 PCB or how hard it is to solder on a new one (depends on if its tricky to get at or not). Good thing is fuses are really cheap.

3- Other power problem with the PCB due to corrosion or impact damage. The PCB or 'motherboard' of the camera will need to be replaced.
