My canon power shot sx120 1s wont allow me to use the menu, display, functions/settings button. Help


Check all your buttons have retracted all the way out. Sometimes it only takes one stuck (stupid) rubber button to stuff things up :) Check your camera thoroughly even check to see if the card/battery door is fully closed

Camera wont come on


Since it is dropped there is a strong chance that it might be F.. But. Here are the steps for no power problems: 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.

Camera wont turn on!! help!!


Dear Texaslilly,
Although there is nothing much to do but you can still try the following.
  1. Try with different set of batteries
  2. Remove the memory card from the camera
  3. Cameras generally do have an option to plug-in external power supply..Try with external power supply .. if there is any.
  4. Now this might sound little crazy but no harm in trying .... Remove batteries... Press and hold the power button for few seconds... release the power button ... reinsert the batteries and try to power on without memory card.
Try the above and let me know if it works.

Regards,
Srinivas.

Canon G10 wont turn on


Try removing the card first and then trying to power up the camera. Cameras often fail to turn on/off when a card goes faulty. Next I would try pushing the playback button, it also acts as a power button but starts the camera in playback mode. If this works it could indicate a problem with the power switch circuit itself. If there is still no sign of life I would suspect a fuse to have blown. They are internally located and very small, you would need to have a service centre try replace it for you. Good Luck!

The camera may in fact be hung in voice recording mode, or may in fact have a low voltage error or internal failure. Suggest that you follow this routine. 1 remove batteries and press the on button, nothing should happen. Allow camera to sit for five minutes. 2 remove memory card if one is installed into camera. 3 install two fresh batteries in camera and attempt to power it on. 4. once on set the time and date. attempt to take a photo. then cycle the camera off. Once again power it on and see if the settings remain intact. If it is working then power off and insert the memory card and test again. I have found that allowing the camera batteries to run low and die in the camera cause a series of problems like the one that you have. Always use rechargable batteries of the Nickel metal hydride construction in this camera. This is the only known reliable power source for this camera. Note: camera instructions for this model can not be found on the samsungusa site and you will have to go to http://www.samsungcamera.com to find instructions for this older model.
