How do you know the battery is full? Even when the charger says so, it can be the voltage is high enough, but the battery can't deliver any current.
Other cause; you did put in the battery the wrong way around.
Other cause; there is some dirt in the battery housing, blocking the work of the battery. Check if all contacts, from battery and in the camera are clean, shiny and free. If there is any dirt or oxide on the contact points, clean with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools on contacts.

SOURCE: Canon Powershot PD630 will not turn on!

Hi

Either the fuse has blown or there is another problem with the main PCB or possibly the battery door indicator switch.

Open the battery door, by the memory card slot is a tiny switch; is the black tab for the switch still there or is it broken off and missing? Is it jammed down? Try holding the switch down with a pencil and press the power button... does it work?

If it doesnt seem to be the switch, it's probably the fuse. If you can solder well you can probably replace it yourself, and I will get the fuses tracked down and listed in the store so they are available to anyone who needs them.. they are cheap!

We are a digital camera repair business, if we can help please let us know! Good luck from Darntoothysam com

SOURCE: camera wont turn on

I just posted that I have this problem as well. Then, after browsing further at Canon's site, I found a possible link between the memory card and the power problem. Sure enough, I popped the memory card out and reinserted it and the camera powered right up. I hope this helps others. . . .

SOURCE: Canon Powershot SX110is: problem with the batteries

Make sure you are using Lithium batteries. Alkaline batteries will go dead immediately in this camera. I've tried it.

SOURCE: my canon powershot sd 1200 wont turn on.

Hi,
Check whether your batteries are actually making contact with the battery posts, and that these posts are clean. If not, bend the posts up/down a little, and maybe clean them with a little rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip. Or if that does'nt work our for you , if your camera uses Compact Flash, check to make sure all pins are present and aligned in the card slot (if bent, simply unbend/straighten them with a skinny "jewelers" screwdriver, then insert the flash card for final realignment).

Thank you !!

How do I take HDR shots with the canon powershot sd940?


Ok, like this. Cameras don't have an option "HDR", they have the possibility of taking HDR photos.

HDR is a term used for taking pictures with good lighting and shadows - this you need to set yourself - once you have, you have HDR ;)
