I would have to agree sounds like a motor or gear that the motor turns.

SOURCE: wont power-up

repair of this nature is possible, but ill advised. seals can be easily damaged, time would be prohibitive and likely need some special tools to manipulate screws and other fasteners. you will likely end up sending it in for more than pins after you invest a lot of time and buy tools.
shipping is minimum on a camera body. Canon has fixed price repairs that minimize your exposure to big bills for repairs. they will at that time go through the camera and update the firmware as well. worth the 250 or so they might charge.
unfortunately, you have two bodies that need repairs.
not powering up could mean an issue with the battery, or the camera door sensor, or the mother board.
check to see the camera battery and other camera body doors are fully closed. try another battery from a local shop. if that does not work, you will need to send it in for repairs.
sorry, and good luck

SOURCE: Canon Powershot SX100 Change battery light

dear sir/madam,

it only fixed to put rechargables in. tried to use rechargeable batteries.

Alkaline batteries stored at "room temperature" self discharge at a rate of less than two percent per year. So normally refrigerating or freezing them will only help maintain their charge by a tiny amount. Hardly worth the effort of chilling them. However, if alkaline batteries are stored at higher temperatures they will start to lose capacity much quicker. At 85 degrees F they only lose about 5% per year, but at 100 degrees they lose 25% per year. So if you live in a very hot climate or are storing your batteries in a very hot location, it may be worthwhile for you to store your alkaline batteries in a refrigerator instead.

NiMH and NiCd batteries self discharge at a MUCH faster rate than alkaline batteries. In fact, at "room temperature" (about 70 degrees F) NiMH and NiCD batteries will self discharge a few percent PER DAY. Storing them at lower temperatures will slow their self discharge rate dramatically. NiMH batteries stored at freezing will retain over 90% of their charge for full month. So it might make sense to store them in a freezer. If you do, it's best to bring them back to room temperature before using them. Even if you don't freeze your NiMH batteries after charging them, you should store them in a cool place to minimize their self discharge.

When u use cheaper batteries usually get that message, but when u use more expensive batteries It don't and can take 400+ pictures.

For an example when u use Rayovac Heavy Duty batteries (4 pack costs about .99) It can take maybe 20 pictures, but when u use Energizer batteries ($3-$4 for a 4 pack) 400+ pictures can be taken. I'm not sure why this is, but it is something.....

good luck

So checked ground wire and battery and still not working andnormally when u go to start the car dings and not doing that either but its a new battery

Put headlights on, do they go on.
If yes check that battery cable or ground cable are clean at connection, use sandpaper to clean then reinstall. Check if clean where cable connector goes to battery terminals.
If no, check polarity, is battery installed correctly at + and - terminals? Was cable dirty looking when removed, might need to rough up the ends where they go over the battery posts.

My calc isn't turning on n I have replacing battery then also it's not working only under the light it get starting (working on solar power).plz help me..

Make sure the batteries are put in the calculator the correct way (polarity). I would also put it very close to a light bulb (with the batteries in) to see if you can get it going. Also, if the old batteries leaked, carefully try and clean the acid off the terminals. Make sure to wear gloves and/or wash your hands thoroughly to get the acid off you!

Good luck.

Smart entry and start system does not work after new battery put in

Please note: (if you replaced the remote battery)
- New battery is connected in the right polarity.
- New battery is in good working condition.
- Check the voltage of new battery.
- The connecting terminals must be clean enough to provide good contact.
- Hold the remote with the Toyota sign facing toward smart touch button on the car until you hear a sound.
- Place the remote on passenger's seat for five minutes to complete the registration process.
- Start the car.
If the problem persists, retrieve the error codes and put here for further help.

Power wont turn on

If the camera will not power up then please check the following:
1. That the batteries are inserted correctly. Two should be facing upwards and two downwards. With the camera facing you (upside down) then the first battery on the left should have the positive terminal up, the second down, third up and last one down. If this does not work then ensure the slider switch to close the battery cover is fully closed - sometimes this sticks - as this closes a microswitch. If the camera still does not work then a fuse will have blown in the camera. This would be a very expensive repair. Hope this helps

Battery dead boot locked and wont open manually

If you have a trailer plug in the rear of the vehicle, power can be feed into the correct terminals to allow for electric things to work. Also, the interior power outlet for the cigarette lighter can be used as a port to feed in power with any cigarette power lead. Just be sure to use the negative with the same polarity.

For that matter, if the interior is accessible, you can uncover the fuse panel and feed power into the fuse block. Any 12Volt battery will provide enough power to open the boot.

Are you sure you have conected the battary up the correct polarity, red cable to the positive terminal, black to the negative, there will be a main fuse somewhere behind the dash board, or on a low tention wire conected to the battary.

How do I change the battery, and what will I need?

You will need to have the codes to your audio set if this is the origianl equipment. the New battery must be of the same rating and confirm to the size set in the area.
Remove the terminals and take off the battery , clean well the area of the battery compartment. Clean the terminals.
Now set the new battery with the right terminals- double check the polarity.connect, set the codes and test. Check the charging current to confirm that the electrics are in order.

79 sportster charging system voltreg and generater keep going out with new battery

This is unusual since the generator is usually pretty tough. I've got one question. Are you properly "polarizing" the generator? To "polarize" the generator, you need a piece of wire that will reach from the battery to the generator.

"With the generator on motorcycle and connected to regulator, connect one end of a jumper wire to the generator armature terminal. Momentarily touch the other end of the jumper wire to the positive terminal of the battery. This restores the magnetism, Remove the jumper."

This is directly out of an H-D service manual. The 'polarizing" procedure should be done anytime any part of the charging system is removed from the bike. Since a generator produces a DC current, this insures that the current is of the correct polarity.

Also, make sure that the voltage regulator that is bolted to the frame is well grounded. It depends on this ground to regulate the voltage. We usually put one of the "star" type lock washers between the regulator and the frame on each of the mounting bolts. The teeth on the washer dig into the frame and the body of the regulator providing a good ground. And, make sure that you've got the wires properly connected. The green wire goes to the "Field" terminal and the two tan wires go to the 'Armature" terminal. If you need a complete schematic, contact me directly at

Good Luck
