Question about Canon PowerShot G6 Digital Camera

Does not Turn on!

All of a sudden, my G6 won't turn on.  I have 2 battery packs, both have been recharged, neither work.  I cleaned the contacts on them.  Don't have a clue what else to try to avoid paying $150 to Canon for repair service.
Thanks!

    G6 will not turn on using a battery. Works fine with AC adapter. Batteries seem to be fully charged. Even a new, charged battery does not work. Tried replacing the Compact Flash Card with the original (supplied with camera). Did not help.

We returned the the G6 (Jan 29, 2008 post) to Canon for repair, cost $139 plus $8 shipping (not including shipping to send it to them). Learned nothing about what caused the problem. The camera now works with its old CFcard, old battery, etc.. Definitely a camera problem, with a camera only slightly used, and only a few months out of warranty! Not very happy.

I have a pair of walkie talkies, rechargable, but one of them wont work with the battery pack. Both battery packs work in the other one, but this one will only work with 5 AAA batteries. Any ideas out


If your rechargeable battery pack takes a different battery tray than the alkaline, you possibly have a bad connection in the battery tray. If they appear to use the same battery contacts, look at where the rechargeable battery touches compared to the alkaline. There may be a problem in this area. Clean all contacts with a pencil eraser to insure your radio is free of debris on the contacts.

Best regards.

My xbox 360 wireless controller won't turn on


If it has a rechargeable pack on it try swapping it out with a "AA" battery pack. sometimes the rechargeable batteries can go bad. If the controller still won't turn on then you have an internal problem and you will need a new controller. :)
Or you can try getting your controller fixed, although there in not very many people that are willing to work on controllers

My camera won't turn on i charged it and now it won't turn on!


This truly depends on the make and model of your camera. If it uses a rechargeable pack, make sure to fully charge the battery and try it. If this still doesn't work, try plugging it in the computer via USB. If it turns on, then your battery pack may be causing the problem. I would suggest you to bring it to your nearest service center for them to check it out, especially if you still have warranty and so they can replace the battery pack. Some cameras have a reset button at the very bottom (or look into your camera's manual if there is such a thing for your camera) which could be an option as well.

I bought grundig G6 at Boeing Store,when i turned the radio ON it suddenly turned OFF by itself . i always tried to press ON until 5 times n suddenly it works normally, n if i press the AM,search UP,or...


That unit is not made any longer. There could be an issue with the buttons. They are most likely carbon pad. They can degrade over time and no longer work correctly. In some cases you can take the front panel off and remove the membrane with the buttons and clean them with alcohol and clean the pad they contact and reassemble. However this could also be a bad capacitor that holds the charge when the button is pressed.

A640 freeezes while taking pictures


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

My kodak digital camera won't turn on.


First, remove the SD card (if there is one) and see if it works. If it does, then the SD card is damaged. If it still doesnt work, read on..

Try regular alkaline batteries. If they work, it could indicate that your rechargeable batteries are dead and need to be replaced, or there is a problem with the charger.

If the regular batteries dont work either, try cleaning the contacts in the battery compartment of your camera, or gently scratching the contacts with a jeweller's screwdriver. If it still does not work, there is an issue with the camera's power board and it will require servicing.
