Question about Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera
The battery is fully charged and when i put it in, the camera won't turn on. so i put the battery back on the charger and the light is orange for about 5 min and then it turns green. i try it again in the camera and it won't turn on. this is the 2nd time this has happened. the 1st time i took it in and they fixed it with but they won't tell ,me what the problem is. i'm tired of taking this camera in. what can i do to avoid this again? i have never dropped the camera before either.
Open the battery door , there should be a small button
( right next to SD Memory card on my IXUS 60 )
It tells the camera when door is open & disables power to the camera .Its very weakly made & is responsible for alot of people's problems I have seen so far,including myself !!
The one on my IXUS 60 just magically fell out and landed down the drain whilst I was just changing a battery , and the camera ceased to function. With the button itself gone the copper wire terminals were visible. I used a small pair of scissors and pushed them together and it instantly resumed working, & still does.
I'd recommend using a piece of aluminium foil , or any other conductive material folded up and inserted into the cavity to connect all the copper prongs together.
Im not going to tell you to pull your button out, BUT,
Upon seeing inside it, I'm confident that even when still intact , it'd be really easy for it to malfunction....
