I think the problem may be in the camera software. I reset the timer for auto shutoff from 5 mins to 10 min, This seems to have solved the problem, but it will take a longer time to be sure. I would suggest everyone with the problem try this and post the results. A easy fix if it works long term.

SOURCE: Battery Fully Charged Camera Won't turn on

Hi

There are several things that could cause this.

1- Check the battery door indicator switch under the battery door and beside the memory card slot. Is the little black switch damaged or missing? Try pressing down gently using a pen it with the door open and then press the power button. Does it turn on?

2- The fuse has blown and needs to be replaced. Offhand I don't recall where it is on the SD600 PCB or how hard it is to solder on a new one (depends on if its tricky to get at or not). Good thing is fuses are really cheap.

3- Other power problem with the PCB due to corrosion or impact damage. The PCB or 'motherboard' of the camera will need to be replaced.

A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.

Don't bother trying to send the camera to Canon if it is out or warranty (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.

I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.

If we can help with your repair then please let us know.

Hope this helps,

Thomas

How to Save my Laptop Battery?


Charge battery fully (with laptop off) then unplug AC power. Do not continuously have power plugged in. This will ruin your battery. Remove battery when not in use for long periods. To refresh battery charge fully then run laptop till it turns off. Turn on again and wait for it to turn off. When laptop wont turn on, charge battery fully again and repeat process about 3 times. This should extend an old battery's run time.

Camera retracts it's lens and turns itself off about 10 seconds after I turn it on


Have you fully charged the battery? if it is a new camera or battery,it needs at least 12 hrs of charge,to maintain good charge, if only a short time of charge was given from new the life of the battery will be greatly re-juiced,try a new battery with a full charge, if this fails your camera is probably faulty, take it back to get a replacement.

I have a brand new Nikon D3100. The battery was fully charged and placed in the camera. I took about 4 photos, and then turned the camera off. When I turned it back on the battery wasn't working to...


The solution to your problem is simple, Kathrynbax.


The battery never comes in fully charged. It's always charged only so you may be able to check if your camera is working. I suggest, you take out your battery and put it to charge for exactly 90 minutes as the manual says. Then I'm sure you won't face any such problems.


Hope this solves your problem.

Good day!

The fully charged sony batteries run out and the camera shuts off on DSC-S700 Sony digital Camera.


It is possible that the batteries have reduced its capacity to recharge to the full value. Fully discharge and charge and try. If your camera is working fine otherwise , it will be good to buy new batteries. Since the charging procedures for retaining good life for rechargable battery is to do the intial charging for abotu 12-18 hours and let it drain fully before repeating the process at least three times. Try and do it at least once a fortnight so that the battery does not get cells to develop back EMF. Hope you try this out.

I can't turn on the camera, even with a fully charged battery.


The battery contacts are like little springs, as the camera gets jostled these can stop making good contact. Open the battery case and try force holding the battery against the contacts (You may need to hold a piece of metal across the bottom of the battery as you push) Then see if the camera comes on.

If it does, you may have to stuff, pull, or rig the battery to fit more securely.

Hi,

Possible causes and how to handle them
1. The camera is not on

Turn on the camera. (Operation procedure varies between camera models. Please refer to the camera user guide supplied with your camera.)


2. The rechargeable battery is not fully charged.

Make sure the rechargeable battery is fully charged. If the battery has not been used for an extended period of time, or if it is being used for the first time, it may not be fully charged. In cases like this, fully charge the battery and then discharge it completely in the camera several times to bring the battery back to its normal performance.



The rechargeable battery's capacity diminishes the longer the battery is used. When the battery consumption becomes quicker, the battery life may be at its end. Replace the battery with a new one.


3. The battery terminals are dirty.

When camera does not operate with a brand-new alkaline battery (for cameras that use AA-size batteries) or with a fully charged rechargeable battery, the terminals may be dirty.
Polish the terminals with a dry cloth and make sure the terminals are clean. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor contact and power may not be fully supplied to the camera.

Also, polish the battery charger terminals with a dry cloth before charging the battery. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor contact and the battery may not be fully charged.


4. The batteries are not installed correctly (for cameras that use AA-size batteries)

For cameras that use AA-size batteries, multiple batteries are used in one camera. Make sure the direction of each battery matches the direction indicated on the camera. If any of the batteries are improperly inserted, the camera will not operate.


5. The battery cover or CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely closed

Most cameras have a lock mechanism on the battery cover. The camera will not turn on if the battery cover is not locked or securely closed, or if the CF card (SD card) slot cover is not securely closed. Make sure these covers are securely closed.
