ACK DC30 Mains adapter doesn't work

I have just bought this adapter but it does not power the camera - Ixus 850IS. The regular supplied battery does not power on until the battery door is closed. With the adapter in use it is not possible to close the battery door - the connection prevenrts this. So is this why the adapter will not power on?

Re: ACK DC30 Mains adapter doesn't work

I think these cameras have a small removable rubber cover which will allow you to put a lead in and still close the door. There is a switch on the battery door so it has to be closed for the camera to work!!

My fuji finepix s5000 has lost power

see this causes and proceed . God bless you
If the camera won't turn on, check the batteries, or connect the camera to an AC adapter. If that doesn't work, remove all batteries, disconnect the AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and reconnect the adapter.
If the flash doesn't work, the camera won't take pictures, or the screen keeps turning off, check that the batteries are strong.

Camera does not open, it is attached to the mains and has green light

1) recharge the batteries very well or put NEW ones.

2) better put some adaptor for to test if the problem is not the batteries.

3) if the camera work with the adapter , the problem is the power supply in the camera. you must go to the repair shopt. However read your owner camer, for tips, and troubleshooting section.
God bless you

Print copy of handbook for Canon Digital Camera type IXUS 850IS

The IXUS 850 is called the SD800 in some parts of the world. You can download the SD800 manual (and more) from the manufacturer's web site at

You can print it yourself, or any office-supply store should be able to print and bind it for you.

How do i connect direct power to the canon 1000D, and eliminate the use of a battery.

Sorry, but Andrea is wrong.

You need to buy the Canon ACK-E5 AC Adapter Kit, which fits T1i, XSi and XS (basically anything that takes BP-E5 batteries). It costs between $70-$100, depending where you shop.

Here's a link to the item on

Samsung L100 cant figure out how to charge!!! Adaptor supplied but no battery charger to plug in to mains. Do I need to purchase a battery mains charger???

you can charge the battery through the camera like a cellphone.

plug the USB cable to the ADAPTER then plug it to a wall socket then plug the USB cable connected to the AC power adapter to your camera

the USB cable should have an indicator (RED) if it is already charging and (GREEN) when its done

On the Sony DSC-H7 camera can you disable the auto power off? If not does the use of an external power supply disable it? Thanks

The auto power off function that operates if the camera is not used for about 3 minutes, when operating on battery power, cannot be deactivated.

When using the camera the camera powered from the Sony AC-LS5 AC mains adapter, or with the Sony DCC-L1, DC power adapter, the camera auto power function is deactivated whilst the camera is connected to the power supply.
