Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera

1 Answer

What to do?

I never bothered with the warrenty and the one year is over due. But I am having the flash problem and also the very short battery life. Is it worth fixing or sending it to canon or just get new camera?

I have a lithium ion battery and it won't charge. The red lights simply keeps flashing. I warmed up the battery, but so far no luck


There could be a variety of reasons for the battery malfunction, some of which are listed below:
a) low battery voltage due to long term storage without charging (>1 year, charger will not charge if the voltage is too low. What is the voltage?),
b) cell imbalance due to shorting out the terminals (was the battery used for other purpose than running power tools?),
c) internal corrosion caused by exposing the battery to damp environments during its life (need to open the battery and look for signs of corrosion on the cells. Was the battery left out in the rain at some point in time?),
d) battery age, ie, the cells may have reached their end-of-life based on the number of charge cycles (what are the estimated number of cycles?),
e) faulty charger (does the charger charge other batteries?),
f) internal battery damage with broken connections (has the battery been dropped or mishandled at some point?).

More details should be provided before suggesting possible solutions.

Motorola RDU2080D Short Battery Life


Short battery life can be due to several factors:

1) Short initial charge(s) when the battery was new.
2) Age of battery. Check your date code embossed on the lower portion of the battery below the label. On a three digit code the first number is the year, next two are the week of the year. If a four digit code the first two are the year. Example 142 is 2011 the 42nd week. OR 1142 if a 4-digit code. If you battery is more than 18-24 months old it likely needs replaced.
3) Short charging the battery by putting the radio on the charge too often, or with the radio turned on. Always turn the radio off when charging.
4) Poor connection with the charger. Clean your battery contacts on both the radio and the charger with a pencil eraser.
5) Excessive talking. Heavy talkers radios will run down quickly. It takes more energy to Transmit than to Receive. Using the 5/5/90 rule, your battery should go an 8 hr business day.

Note: There are 3 battery styles available for your radio. The one which comes with the radio is a 1100 mAH battery. There are also two others with higher capacities available.

Best regards.

My new samsung galaxy ace has a VERY short battery life.. it doesnt matter if i change the settings.. it only last for about 1 day at most.. not even 24 hours.. how can i fix this?


"If your battery sat on the shelf for a year, then it has deterioated enough to where it would only hold 1/ 2 to 2/ 3 the original charge."

galaxy ace is relatively new. nothing you say makes sense.

if you don't use data service, you can switch to gsm (not 3g) to preserve battery life. works with me across devices.

I850 printer problem


Right, This fault is due to the waste ink pads being full, The machine will stop working until the machine has been servcied and cleared. Normally it is the end of life once the ink pads are full. By time you get a engineer out with new pads and for him to fit them it would cost more then a new machine, so i would buy a new machine with a one year canon warrenty , be so much eaiser and cheaper

hope this helps

Life-Drive will not power on.


I don't know how much technical skill you have, but I had the same problem and the warrenty had expired. I thought it might be a battery problem. To make a long story short I unpluged the internal battery and pluged it back in and the system came on.
