Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

Camera not turning on any more, can't put the memory card back in

The last time I used my camera, it worked perfectly fine. Now, a few weeks later, I try to turn it on and it does not work. I recharge the batteries and retry, still not turning on. I plug it into the computer, and still nothing. For some reason, I took the memory card out, and now I don't know if I am just incapable of putting a memory card back in, but no matter what I try it will just not fit back into the space where it was before. Any ideas why this could have happened?

    Camera was working fine. Turned it off and then tried to turn it back on an hour later. Camera would not turn on (no green light and no images). I tried several other sets of new or recharged batteries, and still the camera wouldn't turn on. I cleaned the battery contacts with eraser and still could not get camera to turn on. I have not had a problem getting the memory card in and out.

    I just got my CCD replaced by Canon, and when I got the camera back I started to have the same problems you are describing. Did you ever find a solution?

    My A70 will not recognize ANY batteries I place in it. Fresh, new batteries, recharged NiMH batteries.

Make sure you are putting the card back in the correct way - usually a little symbol to help you on the inside of the card chamber cover or see your manual. Check also that no foreign body has got into the card chamber Come back when you have checked this out.

Last time i used it wasworking fine next day got a 'card error'


Did you try formating the memort stick.
This will clean up any error in the stick.
Don't let the battery in the camera run to low, messes with the flash memory.

My sandisk memory stick pro duo wont work anymore


I have a Sony Cybershot DSC T70 and it keeps saying "Reinsert memory stick" whenever I turn on the camera or slide down the camera lid. Also, whenever I try to view the pictures on my laptop it shows "Please reinsert the memory stick" something along those lines. As I have been researching for the solution, I would have to format the memory card. However, I wouldn't want to lose the pictures as I just took many as from the holiday last week. The only problem is the memory card, I tried using another memory card and it works fine with the camera. There is nothing wrong with the camera.\r\nCan someone please help me how to solve the memory stick problem? It would be great. Ty.

Turns on and off repeatedly


My AIPTEK 1080p was powering on but the screen was turning off within one second of turning the unit on. I verified that the camera was still working and just the output onto the screen failed. I was able to resolve this by hooking the camcorder up to the TV and viewing the menus on the TV and then turning the camcorder off with the power button. I think this problem happened because I didn't do a "clean" shutdown the last time I had my aiptek hooked up to the TV. It is now working perfectly!

Switch on - Switch off! Coolpix3100


Coolpix uses SD cards, not CF. Anyway, try using the camera without memory card, only with internal memory. If it works, then replace memory card.

SD cards - Sandisk


Do you think maybe the problem is with the memory card rather than the camera. It is always safest to format the cards for the specific camera you will be using it for the first time you use it, that way it does not require to be reformated more than once a year ....after you make sure that you have backed up all your photos first ! Next time pack a spare card, but the camera promises to be very dependable.
