Re: battery charger

It sounds like you need a new battery and/or battery charger. I had the same problem with a simular camera before and just replaced both the charger and the battery because I wasn't sure which one of them was faulty. I haven't had a problem since then. I bought them from the website the company guaranteed thier batteries for a year and thier price was the cheapest on and off the internet that I could find. They have both batteries and chargers for your specific camera. This should take care of your problem. Hope this helps

I have a cannon ixus 75 can i charge it from a laptop

Probably not, USB does not provide enough current to charge this type of battery, ergo Canon does not support USB charging. You can buy a third party charger and battery set for not very much and keep this camera working.

I have A2200 cannon powershot camera but the flash is not working

You can Google your camera make/model and open the link to download your user manual in a PDF. I did this and picked the one below. Under the Table of Contents, pick Turning off the flash. The instructions to turn it on are there as well.
Hope this helps. Mike

How do I charge my Cannon Powershot S750 battery using the computer ?

You can't. This camera does not charge the battery in the camera. You need to remove the battery and put it into the battery charger.

If you no longer have the charger, a replacement can be obtained cheaply from Amazon. I like the "Universal" chargers, which have adjustable contacts and can charge any of the small lithium batteries found in cameras and phones. These are available for as little as three US dollars. Mine will plug into a wall socket or a car cigarette lighter socket.

Cannon sd750 digital elph will not charge, either on charger or on pc. would this need a ew battery , it is two years old , advice please much appreciatd

As you've guessed, it's time for a new battery. Rechargeables are only meant to last 1-2 years, regardless of their use. Fortunately, your camera uses the NB-4L battery, for which there are many inexpensive generic altenatives these day. Here's some examples from Amazon. Make sure you read the user reviews before purchasing, as some generics are better than others.

Will the PowerShot charge through the USB cord? I lost the charger

No. The PowerShots do not include the charging circuitry. That's why they come with a separate battery charger. You can buy a new charger from Canon, or a third-party charger at any reputable camera store. I can't tell you the charger model number since you didn't specify the camera model.

Cannon Powershot A720 Low batter

If your charger tries to charge at a rate which is too low for the capacity of the batteries they may never charge fully. Or if they are the wrong chemstry eg NmH not NiCd they will not charge properly. Try a separate charger for you batteries they place to go is a specialist store for the electronic boffin eg Tandy, Radio Shack.

I have a cannon powershot SD30 and the battery's charger shows its full but the camera shows its low battery then shuts down

Your battery is only meant to last a year or two. When they go bad, the charger will show them as charged, but as you've discovered, this charge doesn't last very long. If an old battery, it's time to consider a new battery. Generic NB-4L's are relatively inexpensive. Here's some from Amazon:
