Canon MVX100i not powering up.

Hi there, I've had my Canon MVX100i for almost 4 1/2 years. Last Thursday, I switched the camera on, cleaned the lens & used a head cleaner tape. Yesterday (Sunday) I switched my camera on again and nothing happed. Batteries were fully charged so tried the mains power unit (i have checked the fuse). This did not switch on the camera either. Is there anything that be done or has my MVX100i gone to the camera storeroom in the sky??

SOURCE: Canon A95 gone dead

I ain't so lucky I'm in the UK too!!!! Generally speaking the cost pf packing, shipping repair, at any level is well on the way to the price of the next more recent higher specification device. Judging by the way the Megapixels go up by the week seemingly, settling for a replacement camera is usually the best option. I had a cheap[old] Fuji come my way because it had gone blurred and blue - sure sign of a CCD failure as this was at some time the subject of a recall for the problem I checked out Fuji Their response was to say no longer repaired but has a 1/3 off a new camera when I quoted a reference number. That seems to be the way to go.

SOURCE: Canon Ixus 75 not charging

The camera was working fine 2 days ago. Yesterday when I tried to switch it on, I assumed that the battery was flat so I charged it but when fully charged the camera still won't switch on. Please help! bob

I would first check the little plastic switch for the battery door being closed. Try pushing that in and turning it on with the battery in. Using a fully charged battery helps also. If these don't work you may have a blown fuse or component on the PCB.

Which brand of digital camera has the least problems with lens error? I'm looking at the Nikon S8100 and it sure seems like a lot of people are having this problem.

Hi, Overall I'd say Canon has the least number of lens errors I've seen followed by Panasonic then Olympus then Fuji then Nikon and in last place Sony.

Camcorder picture has no colour and very dark

Playback a recorded tape on another monitor such as the computer's or a TV. If the recorded program is ok, then your camcorder screen is bad. If the recording is bad, then you may have a CCD or lens problem.

My Canon is displaying - Err 99 what should I do?

Just found this info which should help diagnose the err 99 issues (info direct from Canon apparently)

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.
