Try resetting the battery, following these directions. They are for an R837. If these don't work for you, try going to the HP website and doing a search for your particular model and checking the FAQ section.

My Power Shot SX130 IS wont turn on... I dont know why, yesterday was working and all the sudden today I tried to Power On and doesn't do anything. I changed the batteries .... HELP!



Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine . Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format.

My A410 will not turn on. worked great yesterday,


There are two things you can try. First I must tell you that these cameras are extremely vulnerable to moisture. I've had customers who had them in there pocket while jogging and they went faulty. Okay, that having been said let's try the quick fix, Take a Q-Tip and dampen it in rubbing alcohol, do not soak it.Take the Q-Tip and clean the contacts inside the battery compartment taking care not to snag the small ejection spring for the battery. Do the same for the battery and the charging station. This most likley will solve your problem however should it not there's another venue still available. Now you want to take the battery out of the cam and place the battery and the cam in a large Ziplock bag half full with uncooked rice. Real rice, not the 5 minute stuff. Leave it overnight or even two days if your not too exited about the outcome. Remove them from the bag and shake any renegade particles of rice that may have found a home in the battrery compartment etc. If this works all I need now is a smile...Thanks, Dana

Does not turn on


Get another battery - it is possible the replace is stale/old/dud. Check the cleanliness of the contacts on battery and the camera, a light polish with tissue- sometimes if the camera has not been used for a with a slight patina of dirt/corrosion will build up to prevent contact.
