Check for battery current ratings, Canon cameras need AA batteries with current rating above 1200 mAh, I use Energizer rechargeable batteries for my Canon Powershot SX110 IS. The batteries last more if we use the flash option wisely.

Wont turn on


If you think this has to do with the battery power, you also should check the contacts in the battery compartment. If the are not shiny, you can try to clean them with a dry cloth or a cotton swap. Don't use sharp tools in or close by a camera.
Make sure the battery is inserted correct and the battery cover should be locked correct.
If the camera was not used for a long time, perhaps some contacts are oxidised. Those contacts you can switch, try to switch them several times. Open and close the battery door several times. Press the on of button several times. Put the battery in and remove it several times. And hope the contacts will work again.

Will not switch on with new batteries


I wonder what batteries you use? The best would be two AA rechargeable NiMH batteries. But a new CR-V3 lithium battery should work also.
When you have rechargeable batteries, you should check if they are charged. And when inserting, check if you did out them in correct. Only the CR-V3 is protected for inserting it wrong. when you have two batteries, you can put them in the wrong way. Then, if you did not use the camera for a long time, please make sure all contacts in the battery compartment are clean and shiny. If not, try to clean them, with a clean cloth. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera. Contacts, could be rubbed with a little electronic contact oil, but the oil must be removed afterwards. As strange as it may sound, even the contact oil can be cause of oxidation on contacts.
When the batteries are in, make sure the battery door is correctly closed.
If you checked everything and you are sure the batteries are in correct, just try switching on and of several times, by opening and closing the lens barrier. Also while the lens barrios is closed, press the play back button on the back side of the camera. If both don't work, then again the batteries are under suspicion.

If it is brand new and any fault is excluded..than the batteries are the only one to blame ...Check again to be sure you inserted them well and in the right position ..and also if you do not use rechargeable ..use only high quality ones..cause some batteries on the market do not have the correct amperage and will not power the camera ..
Also pay attention cause some cameras have a double power source ..and can be powered from an adapter...so ..they have a button to switch mode...This can be the case for you too ..

I have had my digital camera JUST over one year and its stopped working - brand new batteries and it just wont come on. Is it broken or am I doing something wrong?


This you will think as silly but check the battery's are correctly inserted and also try another set. Is the SD card inserted ? some cameras will not operate without the card.

Nikon F601 Wont Turn On...


The most common cause of no electrical function is some sort of corrosion on the battery terminal connectors.  Assuming the battery is the correct type (6V DL223A, CR-P2) and holding a good charge, it could be that one or both of the prongs at the bottom of the battery compartment has something on it. The F601 (or the N6006 version, which I have) is 16-17 years old now, and has likely picked up some battery corrosion over its lifetime. Try rubbing the top of the terminals with a rough pencil eraser (being careful not to bend the prongs over).
You might also check to see whether the battery is latching under the tiny tabs inside the edge of the battery compartment when it is inserted. It should be- this holds the battery down tight against the terminal prongs.
If the battery is good, inserted correctly (open terminal end in first), and the F601 still doesn't power up, then...ummm...

Take the batteries out. Install the batteries making sure they are inserted according to the camera diagram on the inside cover. Once the batteries have been installed correctly turn the camera on. If it does not turn on, check the ON/OFF Switch.
