I used the camera for hours last night, haven't had a problem with it yet. This morning, it will not turn on. I've tried with the memory card out, in, recharged the battery, etc... Help, help, help!

    i was taking pictures with my camera and turned it off. i tried turning it back on and it wouldnt turn on. this happened once before; i took it to best buy geek squad and luckily my warranty was still good. it worked well, but just today it did the EXACT same thing. my warranty has expired now, and it looks like ive got a piece of junk on my hands.

    I have had the same issue. I took it to a repair shop today (Portatronics in NYC). The technician said that it was a faulty motherboard. I'm paying $90 for the replacement motherboard and $30 for the labor.

    I bought this camera about a year ago, never dropped it, barely even scratched the thing. I was heading out to an event of my daughters.. it took one picture and turned off.. has not turned back on since. I have tried a different battery, removing memory card, NOTHING!!

These models are notorious for defective mother boards. First check the tiny switch inside the battery compartment for physical damage. If the plastic piece does not pivot freely or is partially broken you can pop this black plastic piece out of the switch with a pin or needle very easily. The camera will power on ok without it. I have quite of number of these models with defective mother boards and Canon service will not give me any help whatsoever. If enough people complained perhaps they would issue a recall notice.

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:

I haven't turned the camera on for a couple of years. I've tried charging the battery, but I can't get it to power up. Do I need to replace battery or is it something else?


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Hi! I have a Nikon Coolpix. I haven't used it in a while. I charged it over night but it won't turn on.


Your batery is dead they don't like long period of staying discharging (If you 100% shure that your Nikon is working) The time of charge dosen't matter.

Everything seems to function well, actually, I've never used this camera. Got if off of ebay, so maybe I was gypped. Anyways, the film advance lever seems to be stuck. It only goes half way. I can put...


If the lever won't advance even when there is no film in the camera, then I would say there is a problem. (p.s. You haven't told us the make and model)

Camera Canon A710 IS started to ask set time date when turned on


When the camera is left without power for an extended period of time, the time and date settings are gone. You need to reset them and when you're finished, click the set/ok button twice.
