  • Have a look at the battery door switch under the battery door but beside the memory card slot. You will see a small black switch. Is it damaged or even missing? If its missing that could very well be the problem. Or, if its there, try pressing it down carefully using a pen while the door is open, and at the same time press the power button. Does it work? If so, it's the switch causing the fault.
  • If that doesn't seem to be it, it is possible the internal fuse needs replacing. A good camera shop should be able to do this for you inexpensively.
  • Finally, it could be a faulty motherboard. Solders and tracks can break/microcrack overtime. Best bet in this case would be to have it checked out by a good repair store. If they will charge too much, it's probably worth buying a new camera instead.
Best of luck!

I have a Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera. The battery has a full charge but the camera will not power up. I press on and nothing happens. What do you recomend?Best RegardsNeil

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

My sd 600 wont turn on i even charged it nothing happens

Hi, With how old that model is it's likely that the battery isn't able to hold a charge anymore, I'd suggest buying a new battery to correct the problem.

My camera says lens error and to restart it? I don't know how to do that. It is a canon elph SD600

You can try turning it off and back on a few times, maybe even remove the battery for awhile. If the lens is physically damaged or dirty inside the assembly / gears, it would actually need servicing to fix this. You'll likely need to look for a repair shop, a great one and probably the most popular for these Canon Powershot cameras is as they only work on the powershots. They tend to be the place if you need help with a canon powershot camera. They don't charge much at all and they do all of the service on the camera too. Go to that site and you'll see they have your specific lens error problem posted right there for your SD600. Good luck taking care of it, that's a very nice Canon camera model.

Battery fully charged. but canon powershot sd600

Your problem may be due to worn out batteries or 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, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Camera will not power on or off and battery is fully charged

The symptoms you describe sound very much like a failing battery. How old is your battery? Rechargeable batteries are only meant to last for a couple years, regardless of use.
