Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
I have a Canon SD1000 and it will not power up at all. It was sitting on my desk untouched after it worked fine one day. The next it will nopt powe up or make any attempts at starting up. I have 2 batteries that are carged and I get nothing. The little tab/switch in the battery cover area seems fine. Is there a reset button that can be used externally? How else can I fix the camera since it seems that a $90 visit to Canon is not worth it for a camera that is not that expensive anymore. Thank you for your time.

Canon customer support will tell you what exactly what is going on[or not] I suspect a circuit failure- if the camera is out of warranty then a new camera will probably bt the answer.

You can give it to an expert for repair, he can repair it for less as there must be just a fuse problem, which can be fixed for a very less amount.

I have a Canondigital ixusi which had the same problem and I purchased three new batteries, but found that all of them showed the "replace battery pack" message when fully charged. I have solved this problem by cleaning all the terminals on the batteries and in the camera very thoroughly with alcohol and Q-tips. Even though the terminals look completely clean, there must be a slight film which is preventing good contact. The contacts in the camera are spring loaded and I suspect they are not making a very good conection to the battery so any contamination is making a high resistance to the flow of electricity. Hope this helps - it worked for me.
