You can get an AC adaptor kit that will power the camera. It is called the ACK800 and costs $49. It's available directly from Canon here: http://estore.usa.canon.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10051&storeId=10051&partNumber=7897&langId=-1

Canon G11 won't start


Possible Solutions.
1. Charge the battery
2. If still not turning on, try using a little rubbing alcohol and wiping the battery terminal(s) on the battery and the battery terminals in the camera. Use a QTip and allow to completely dry before recharging the battery or inserting it into the camera.
2. Replace the battery with new one.
3. On/Off switch may be defective on camera. Charger may be defective. Wire connecting power from charger to wall socket may be improperly connected or loose.

I have a Canon G5 and am on my third set of rechargeable batteries (I bought an extra Canon rechargeable battery when I purchased the camera and then 2 Canon brand replacement batteries when the first 2...


Thank you for such a detailed description, wishing others would take your lead. To the problem camera designated batteries (other then AA rechargeable) have always been a bit of a sore spot for me because the user is compelled to purchase a specific battery. As much as I prefer the name brand accessories for the camera there come a point where you just gotta venture forth with third party accessories. There is nothing wrong with using an "off" brand in fact what I've found is that is some cases they are a better battery. Again back to the problem. I grasping thoughts on how to word this but, here goes. As much as the manufactures would like you to believe that these batteries do not form a memory they do. Also the battery can trick you into thinking it's fully charged when in fact even though the charge light is saying completed it's only got about 1/3 charge. I've worked with Canon's BP 511 and now the "new" BP 511A for many years The BP511A or equivalent is the better battery. What needs to be done is to drain those batteries down until they stop, let it cool don't take it from the camera to the charger. Time the battery when you put it on the charger, meaning not to the second but what you would "normally" do is plug the battery into the charger and leave it right. Well what's possibly happening is that within ten minute the ready light is coming on, (something stupid going on in the battery) So check the battery stat of charge after say 15 minutes and if it says it ready (drum roll please) remove the battery unplug the charger for a few seconds and place the battery charger back onto the wall outlet and plug the battery back into the charger and look at your watch again. I've had to do this as much as three times until the thing would get the idea it was to take a charge "normally" about 2 hours will bring it back up. There is no device I've found to completely drain one of these batteries so over a period of time in your case one year the batteries begin this fit. I've since replaced the BP511 for the better BP511A's or equivalent. I'm not pointing a finger because myself and staff do the same thing and pull the battery before going to a shoot if it's showing partial discharge and the thing gets put onto charge and we start this cycle all over again. Be careful of the charger as well meaning don't just disconnect the battery and put it back on charge when it's going the cycle thing disconnect the charger from its power source as well because it holds a memory for a few seconds and will just shut off in a few moments if you don't.

Long story but I've been doing this now for 9 years since the dawn of Canon's 30D Cheers

New batteries only give me one or two stots and then the camera says change the batteries. Could this be a camera fault. I can't go on returningf batteries to the store. Please help


Hi

The Canon PowerShot A400 is quite an old camera now and whilst it may not be the camera it could be another part of the kit.

If you are using rechargeable AA batteries, which should give the best performance, it could be the battery charger has lost it's ability to charge the batteries.

If you are using standard AA Alkaline batteries, check the battery terminals in the camera, as it could be they are dirty and need to be cleaned.

Hope this helps

I have charged my camera but it will not stay on when turned on


you dont have explain exactly the problem.. if the problem turn on and off istantly this is shure a lens problem and you mst change the lens. if the camera turn on one two 3 minute and than turn off its probably that the camera dont charge the batterie. if the camera dont charge you can bypass the problem. you can buy on ebay a external charger for your batterie. if you search on ebay international seller you can find charger and batterie to a very good price. its possible to find two batterie and one charger to 10 sterl. so you have new batteries and a external charger. external charger is better as charge the battery in the camera. why i is nott so difficult that the batterie explode and ruine the camera. with a external charger this is not possible why you can ruine the charger that have a low cost but not the camera. i hope that i have help you. its possible that the camera dont charge its possible that the batterie dont mantain the charge.. its possible if the camera go on and go out directly that this is a lens error.. sorry foer my english

Have lost manual for canon power shot A400 tried to insert new memory card (scan disc SDHC card 4gb) it it comes up with an error reading on camera screen? Thank you in adv for any help.


Love the A400, it's one of my all-time favorite Canon P&S cameras. But sorry to say your camera will not understand SDHC cards. This format came out well after the A400 was designed. The max memory the A400 can use is a 2GB standard SD card, no higher. Fortunately, these are very inexpensive these days, and run about $6 with shipping:

A400 Digital Camera Problem


I had the same problem with my canon. Canon's techs suggest cleaning the battery terminals and suggest using a pencil eraser to do the job. This didn't help my situation, I had to send it out for repair through canon's website.

Having using standard LR6 batteries in a Canon before you will only get 3 or 4 pics max before it drains the batteries. You really need high power AA's like 2300mAH+ rechargeables for any good performance or Lithium AA's
