My canon SC950S won't turn on. The battery is charged and I tried pushing it in as one of the solutions on this website said to try that. Nothing works. Please advise do I just need a new camera?

Try this: with the battery installed and battery door open, take a pencil, fine tip screwdriver, or anything long and skinny and push the tip of it into the little nub circled in the picture here. There's a spring inside that little nub... keep the spring depressed and try to turn on the camera. If it works, then either a small piece of plastic broke off the battery door or the nub got broken/pushed in too far for the battery door to trigger it. Try using a dab of hot glue to keep the nub pushed into the down position.

SOURCE: Replace battery sign in New canon A590si camera.

You're using the wrong batteries. You need to purchase lithium batteries. They are quality batteries for high powered, battery operated electronics. Personally, I have a battery charger and use rechargable duracell batteries. (HR6/ DC1500/ NiMH/ 1,2V) Gives you approximately 16 hrs before having to recharge.

SOURCE: Camera will not turn on. Battery fully charged;

Hello,
You can give it to an expert for repair, he can repair it for less as there must be just a fuse problem, which can be fixed for a very less amount.

SOURCE: will not turn on

This is likely the cause of an internal screw that has come loose, it's very common on the G9. A great place to get help with this G9 problem is: camerasandparts.com since they just specialize in these powershots. They not only have the fix available but they have the correction so this never comes back, that comes with their no power service for the G9's automatically. I hope that helps, that's the place if you need help with a powershot, best of luck

Hi.

Hi. First ensure that the power adapter is OK.
The power adapter should have been tested using a multimeter (see Multimeter)
If the adapter was good it would have read no more +_0.5V difference from the value in specification.

If the adapter is good, test different batteries. If you do not have a spare battery pack, then you can go to a Canon camera shop and ask to test a battery on the bench.

If the battery and the charger are not the problem, then there is an internal failure preventing the camera to start.

The problem is internal. The most common occurrence is a faulty printed circuit board. A short or a broken contact in the power ribbon cable are less common, but will give the same symptoms.

The EOS must be disassembled and tested to find the problem.

If the unit is over one year old you can ask an online quote using this link:Repair.

I also suggest contacting Canon to check warranty terms and ask a quote on repair.

Regards.

Ginko.

Canon powershot SD1300 IS won't turn on, even with fully charged battery


Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Hiyou might have a problem of either main pcb or power control pcd (dc/dc convertor). it is common but it cost. It cause usually come from loosen screw going around inside and short. If it is lucky, then your unit would just a fuse brown. If not, it has to change main pcb and all of computer adjustment is involved. Your local repair shop would charge you around $65 to 235.

My Cannon G9 digital camera wont power up even though I have a fully charged battery?


This is usually from a loose screw inside the camera, a screw inside the camera can come loose and cause a short which is very common on the G9. If you go to: www.camerasandparts.com all they deal with is service for the Canon Powershots. They're great if you need a hand with one of these and they automatically do the no power correction on the G7's and the G9's they service which is nice. They are about the least expensive out there at $89 and they include the service and the shipping back. The best part, they do excellent work which is a must for me. Hope that helps you some.

Lifeless Camera


I wish I shared you easy solution feeling. Try a few things Take battery out and clean the contacts at the base of the chamber with a pencil eraser. Ditto on the chamber door. If nothing happens try charging the battery in another charger or another battery. Still dead? Kodak support is the next stop
