Question about Canon PowerShot A410 Digital Camera
My A410 will not turn on. Worked great yesterday, but will not turn on today. 3 sets of new Batts. installed and checked, it still won't turn on. I tried memory card removal and install, that did not work. Will not even turn on without memory card. Totally dead nothing.
There are two things you can try. First I must tell you that these cameras are extremely vulnerable to moisture. I've had customers who had them in there pocket while jogging and they went faulty. Okay, that having been said let's try the quick fix, Take a Q-Tip and dampen it in rubbing alcohol, do not soak it.Take the Q-Tip and clean the contacts inside the battery compartment taking care not to snag the small ejection spring for the battery. Do the same for the battery and the charging station. This most likley will solve your problem however should it not there's another venue still available. Now you want to take the battery out of the cam and place the battery and the cam in a large Ziplock bag half full with uncooked rice. Real rice, not the 5 minute stuff. Leave it overnight or even two days if your not too exited about the outcome. Remove them from the bag and shake any renegade particles of rice that may have found a home in the battrery compartment etc. If this works all I need now is a smile...Thanks, Dana
