This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. Take a picture and see if it is also black. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/300/400/430/500, IXY Digital 200a/300a/400/450/500

The little 3 volt button battery is the clock battery for the camera. It keeps track of date and time.

SOURCE: Canon Powershot PD630 will not turn on!

Hi

Either the fuse has blown or there is another problem with the main PCB or possibly the battery door indicator switch.

Open the battery door, by the memory card slot is a tiny switch; is the black tab for the switch still there or is it broken off and missing? Is it jammed down? Try holding the switch down with a pencil and press the power button... does it work?

If it doesnt seem to be the switch, it's probably the fuse. If you can solder well you can probably replace it yourself, and I will get the fuses tracked down and listed in the store so they are available to anyone who needs them.. they are cheap!

We are a digital camera repair business, if we can help please let us know! Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

How do i fix my kodak easyshare ZD8612is when wont turn on even with batteries?


Where did you get these new batteries?
I hope you know you can't use alkaline or NiMH rechargeable batteries.
Only Lithium batteries can be used, because they do have a higher voltage.
If you are sure you have the correct batteries, check if the contacts are clean and shiny. Clean contacts always with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera.
the picture down here is just to show you can't use alkaline batteries. There are also rechargeable lithium batteries for your Kodak.

My camera wont turn on or work even after i put brand new batteries in it... whats wrong with it???


If your batteries did not leak at all, and corrode th points where the. Batteries make contact, then it could be something very serious on the main board, or something simple like the on/off switch. Really it's the sort of problem that needs to be seen by someone. I'd check the battery connections first, then make absolutely sure the batteries are going in the right way around. Flat end is - and pointed tip end is +. Good luck

I have a Canon powershot A1100is dig camera. When I try to turn it on, it reads need new batteries. even if I change the batteries. Sometimes it wont even turn on. Help


Do you using Ni-MH batteries? Canon cameras judge the battery is low power by the real-time voltage of the batteries. And the voltage of Ni-MH batteries are lower than Li-ion ones, so the camera will notice low power even there are new batteries. Try Li-ion ones and see is anything help. best wishes!!

WONT TURN ON


Digital cameras really are battery hogs (especially cameras that use only 2 AA's). Some brands of batteries will have problems just starting up the camera. This may be true even if they're alkaline, brand new, and just out of the package.

Recommend rechargeable NiMH batteries only for your camera. Believe Canon even states this in their user manual. Walmart sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks 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 slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

If the above doesn't work, here's some other things to try:

My kodak easyshare cx7330 camera wont turn on how do i fix it


USE ONLY LITHIUM BATTERIES.

Alkaline batteries don't last long and often can't supply sufficient power on start-up... even when they are new!

Lithium batts cost more, but they last way longer than the equivalent $ value of alkaline batts.

Wont turn on!!!


My problem is this; i changed the battery after i had signal that battery should be changed. I changed the batteries with new one but when i press the on/off button, the camera will turn on.

I put in new batteries again and is still the same problem.
