Camera wont switch on

I used my camera & it was fine, I then looked at my photo's on the camera... the battery was low & after a while it switched itself off saying "battery empty", which it has done many times before. Since then it will just not switch back on. I have two batteries, I have charged them both fully, but the camera still wont switch back on. Can anybody please help me? Thank you!!

Re: Camera wont switch on

Try to use another 2 batteries. The problem could be with the batteries or the charger. By the way, did you checked batteries voltage or tried to use them in another appliance ?

I have a canon SD1000 digital camera and I was looking at my photos and they showed up fine. When I switched to take a picture I got error 24. What is this?

Please remove your battery and the memory card, transfer all your photos into your PC and save. Now format the memory card and replace on the camera. Replace the battery and switch on to shoot. If the fault occurs there is fault in the CCD- the camera optical device- or on the main control board. It is ideal to take an opinion with the Canon support center to estimate.

My best guess is that you need new batteries. Even rechargeable batteries need to be replaced sometimes. I am pretty sure if you purchase new batteries for this, you will be just fine!

Hope this helps!

Camera switches off when i try to take a picture

Digital cameras need to run on rechargeable batteries, If you are already using rechargeables,have a look at tha mAh value which should be written on the side. Retailers recomend a value of at least 1800,personally i would go for 2100.

Low battery warning

What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

Wont switch on

Some cameras have a bettery setting in the menu. You need to make sure this setting is set to the type of batteries you are using. Usually when you use akaline batteries and even if you put in fresh batteries but still get the low battery indication then your camera is set to rechargable (Ni-Mh). Ni-Mh has more power to it then alkaline so this is why you get the low indication.
