Question about Canon Powershot SD450 / IXUS 55 Digital Camera
This camera will not power up. Nothing shows on the screen. It is dead. It has been charged, goes from red to green as it is supposed to...makes no difference...will not power up. Battery terminals look fine. Any ideas?
What is contact cleaner
Posted on May 29, 2008
I had the same experience after drying out my elph sd450. I sprayed contact cleaner into the battery cavity and reinserted the battery. The camera came back to life as if by magic. If you buy a contact cleaner, test it on something to make sure it doesn't melt the plastic. I would suggest puting some contact cleaner on a q-tip and wiping the contacts on both the camera side and the battery. I sill notice that the camera balks sometimes upon re-insertion of the battery, so I do the contact wipe again, and it seems to do the job.
