Sounds like a broken gear, or a grain of sand stuck in a lens gear.

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't power on. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

SOURCE: CANON POWERSHOT SD1100IS Lens error

If you bought it from a retailer, suggest returning for exchange or refund. If this is not possible, see the following:

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

SOURCE: Brand New Canon Powershot A1000 IS battery power always low

Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in a digital camera. Some may also have reached their shelf life, and though right out of the package may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras that use AA's for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you may see the same recommendation.

Keep in mind rechargeable NiMH batteries will save you money in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may be angry with yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

SOURCE: canon G9 no power

Hi

The problem with the Canon Powershot G9 is that there are two small screws that work themselves loose over time and then fall out of their holes inside the camera. These screws bounce around until they cause the fuse to blow and then the camera no longer powers.

You need to have the fuse replaced, or you can replace the DC/DC board much more easily, and then replace the screws and secure them with something like 'Locktite 242' so that they don't pop out again.

We are an actual digital camera repair shop, and can do this repair for you! All you do is go to our site and enter "G9" into the search box. The first result should be the "No Power Repair" for only $90 which also includes the return shipping of the camera to you!

I hope this helps, and if we can help with your repair please let us know.

My CANON Power Shot SD1100IS is no longer recognized by my laptop. It was recognized before, but one day it stopped working. The battery is okay, i tried locking and unlocking the card but nothing seems...


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Camera won't power up


You might try cleaning the battery compartment of the camera to make sure that the contacts are not corroded.
