Camera not turning on

I've been having a proble turning on my camera since coming back from my vacations (thank god it didn't happen at that time!). Batteries are fine, memory card is in, all covers are closed but when I press on the ON/OFF button, the camera emits a "triple beep"-like sound and nothing happens, it does not turn on, nor does a error message appear on the screen. Any hints on what it might be...? The first time it happened was following a memory card change, I might have opened the memory card cover too fast while it was still turned on but to my knowledge, it didnt' happen that way, it suddenly happenend. thank you

Re: Camera not turning on

The Same thing just happened to mine said my card wasn't formatted, tried several card with no luck, the tell me too much money to have looked at $150 min they say buy a new camera. Always get extended warranty for 2-3 years the 49.95 is worth it in the long run.

1) memory card slot/batter covert is open
2)batteries are loades in the wrong direction
3) insufficiente battery voltage
4) poor contact between camera and battery terminal
5) swtich is fault, measure continuity.
God bless you

Canon power button stuck

I have had this happen before and I put WD-40 on a Q-tip and rubbed it around the button. It took a while but it worked for me.

Hello, I have a Lumix DMC-FS10, I have found that some of my photos have downloaded to thumbprint size which won't seem to go any bigger without distortion and some are normal I unfortunately deleted...

Actually, you still might be able to get those photos back, even though they've been erased. Try not to take any more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.
This sounds like the problem may have occurred because you might not have formatted the card in your camera as recommended by the manufacturer. If true, after you've recovered your photos, format the card in your camera using the camera's format feature. This will prevent this from happening again.

My camera won't turn on. I charge it and the red charging light comes on. I have returned the camera for the same problem 3 times. bought it from WalMart. I was on my vacation the 1st time it happened, and...

Are you sure the battery was inserted properly? Try putting it in the way that looks backwards... the battery seriously looks like it's supposed to go in the wrong way. If you're looking inside and using the spring for a reference, DON'T. The spring is only there to push the battery out, not to attach to it.

Canon Powershot S410: cannot turn it on

personally, I would ring Canon and ask for some idea of what might be the problem, and go from there. I assume it is out of guarantee, otherwise I would certainly have it back to them under guarantee. However, it can cost more than a new one to get repaired in some cases if out of guarantee. It could be as simple as needing some contacts cleaning of grease in the battery housing - try cleaning this first is one of the most obvious.

Camera won't turn on with new batteries or power cord

I heard from another posting on here and the answer, that someone took fine sandpaper and cleaned off the terminal ends of both battery and camera and blew out the dust particles from that before replacing the battery, then then camera worked. I have yet to try it with my Kodak camera that is 2 years old and suddenly died too! The batteries are fine and work in other cameras.

LED screen

Try pressing the "DISP" button. Your camera might be set to use the view finder instead of the LCD screen. Also, your camera will automatically turn off the LCD screen after one minute, just any button other than OFF to restore. Also, check to see if the LCD screen is firmly pressed back into the camera; you should hear a slight click or snap noise when it is done correctly. Good luck.
