Question about Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Wont power on...

With a fully charged battery, the camera wont power on. When the battery is removed and inserted, it will power on and it will power off. But for some reason when you press that button to turn it on, it won't, unless you take the battery out and back in. I purchased a new battery, but it does the same thing. Any help is will be greatly appreciated. M. Lee

If you're certain the battery is fine, the next thing to try would be the following. Pay particular attention to the little switches on your doors:

And if those techniques don't work, next thing to try would be fixes for a lens error (you mention it powers on and off. This is sometimes symptoms of a lens error):

Will not stay on.. turns on and then beeps once and turns off.. the battery is fully charged


Welcome to FixYa.

There are three reasons why your camera power ceases while in use.

* The Battery is exhausted
- insert a charged battery or recharged the battery
* The camera is turned off automatically
- turn on the camera power again
* Operation has ceased in a low temperature outside of the camera usage temperature range
- make sure the camera and battery warm by placing them in your pocket, etc. and then immediately before shooting,place the battery in the camera and then shoot.

In your case, posible will be the 3rd reason. If you still having the same issue after doing the troubleshooting. I also suggest to removed and re-insert the battery and try to switch it on again.

If this option wont work, you have to contact your service center.

I will be more happy to know if my solution will help you or not on your issues on your camera.
Feel free to reply on this for any question or comments.

Thank you for using FixYa.

No power - fully charged battery


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

MY CAMERA WONT COME ON THE TELESCOPE LENSE WONT GO BACK IN IT DOSNT SEEM TO CHARGE


Please try the following: Don't forget if you're charging though the computer NOT to turn the camera on. 1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Turn the camera on. 2. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a no power repair with KODAK or a new cable.

Dsc p73 wont switch on when in green camera mode. Tone is short, swiches on in photo preview only with normal tone battery is fully charged.


I'm sorry that the camera is not turning ON. Please make sure that the battery is fully charged.
Please reset the camera by pressing the reset button located near the DC IN jack. if the issue still persists, please power reset the camera by removing the battery and press n hold the power button for 1 minute continuously. After that leave the button and insert the battery and check if it helps. If the issue still persists, your camera will require service.
