    Thanks

    Not successful. How does holding the power button with the batteries out do anything?
    Tried cleaning as suggested, still dead.
    Measured the battery voltage at just over 4 volts off load and battery marked as 3.7V.

    Thanks

    Similar suggestions as to otacon battery check etc. and if all else fails, find a service centre which is not really worth while what with minimum prices quoted.
    Thanks again

Hi,

There are a couple of things you can try. First, take the batteries out and hold the power button for about 30 seconds. Leave the camera like this without batteries for about an hour and then reinsert batteries and try to turn on. If this doesn't help, try checking the contacts on both the batteries and in the camera. Get a qtip and some contact cleaner (one that doesn't melt plastic) and clean the contacts in the camera. If that doesn't help, then the problem could be with the batteries...try a new set of batteries (the charger of the batteries can also be faulty...).

I have cannon digital camera IXUS 255 HS. I


Dear Tejas Belani,
I hope you're still reading this but I had exactly the same problem with the Ixus 255 HS as you describe (full battery - false message - filled battery icon when looking to pictures on the memory card).
After some failed rescue attempts (recharging, completely discharging, 10 second hold of on/off button), I think I finally found it: put a small piece of paper or carton in between the battery opening door and the battery. This pushes the battery a couple of millimeters deeper in the battery bay and ensures a good contact between battery and pins at the other end.

Seems like Canon were a bit cheap on the plastic levers that secure the battery ... or perhaps they erode after some time of usage. This type of camera is often exposed to more aggressive conditions than the bigger, more expensive camera's out there :)

No battery has enough power for Ixus 55


Have you tried cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser, and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Canon sd450 possible battery problem?


If you have charged the battery many times then after 3 years that could be to 90% your problem.
Firstly try to clean the battery contacts and camera contactswith cleaning alcohol or contact cleaner.
If that does not help, it is a new battery.

BATTERY dead. how to charge?


The battery is removable and the camera came with a charger that you connect the battery to and plug into a household socket.
