This is what usually happen when the battery power is too low to drive the lens motor that results in the camera using more battery power to close the lens causing the lens to jam and shut down. you can retract the lens ,replace the batteries and also check the warranty cover for the camera if still under warranty you can return for possible replacement

L310 shuts off when taking pic


As soon as the camera senses the battery does not have enough power, to save a picture you take, it will shut itself down, preventing a memory error. Because if the voltage is to low, no reliable access to the memory is possible. Be aware that in extreme warm or extreme cold the battery can't produce enough power.
Your camera will work with AA batteries.
Always be sure the batteries are charged.
Insert the batteries correct plus to plus and minus to minus. Only one battery the wrong way around and the camera won't work.Check contacts of the batteries and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Also check if the battery door is closed correct. Most cameras do have a switch connected to the battery door. If the switch does not work correct, it could be you can't switch on your camera.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They can't deliver enough power and can start leaking, causing damage to your camera.
Always charge the batteries together, so they have the same charge.
Never use different kind of batteries together. The best is a set not only of the same brand and capacity, but also form the same batch.
Only one poor cell can spoil al the fun, because the total voltage is quick on a critical limit, shutting the camera down.

Camera can't take photos


Most of the time, when a camera asks to shut down there is a problem with the camera. Could be the lens can't come out complete or other, almost invisible things. Even the battery can be a bit low, so as soon as it wants to make the camera ready to "shoot" the voltage goes low. Lots of cameras, will go off then. If you can't find any obstruction on the lens, please charge the battery and try again.

Always low battery


These cameras need good batteries. Make sure you either are using quality Alkaline batteries or NiMH rechargeable.
Also check that previous batteries did not leak and damaged terminals

My Canon S3IS shuts down during zooming. What's the solution ?


It could be the batteries running low. The mechanical zoom consumes battery power and at a certain point the camera will turn itself off. If you wait a minute and turn it back on it seems OK, until you try the zoom again. If you are using non-Canon batteries the camera doesn't always detect the battery level accurately and may flash "low battery" when there is still power remaining, or just turn itself off without warning. So I suggest changing the batteries and check that the battery terminals are not dirty or loose.

Low Battery Light Even with Brand New Lithium Batteries


If indeed the batteries are brand new and without a doubt charged,
then you definitely have a hardware problem in the camera.

You're probably going to have to give it in to be serviced.

Hope I helped!

We are in the middle of a production (Live, right now) and one of our XL1's is shutting down whenever we hit the record button.


It may be timing out. Is the camera in standby mode? If yes, put it in record and lock.
I have an XL1 and a GL1 that sometimes shuts down. Is there a tape in the camera? It will time out sometimes if there is no tape rolling. Even if I am capturing directly to a computer, I always roll a tape, just to keep the camera from timing out.
What does your battery guage read in the viewfinder? A low battery will shut you down without warning. Try running from the power adapter if you have one.
