It sounds like the batteries are not charged. New rechargeable batteries usually are not. Try alkaline batteries just to test the camera.

I can not turn on my Canon power shot G9 digital camera, i recharged m both battries but still the same problem ( my Camera and Battries are about 3 years old ), not only i can't take pictures ( no lens...


This G9 problem is really common. These cameras develop a problem with screws coming loose inside and causing a short in the camera. The place that a lot of people go for help with this problem is: www.camerasandparts.com They just work on the Canon Powershot cameras and nothing else and they do excellent work. The best part with them is that they do a correction inside the camera so the problem won't keep happening. They service the whole camera up and include the shipping going back, it comes to $89 with them. The work quality through them can't be touched, they are the place if you have a Canon. I hope that helps some. Good luck with the problem.

When i insert 4gb memory card into canon power shot s21s, camera is disabled. cannot take pictures


Your new 4GB memory card is the problem. The card would likely be an SDHC card (look on its front cover). Your A540 camera was designed well before the SDHC format came out, and your camera will not recognize it. Your camera can only use standard SD cards (2GB or less). Here's some from Amazon.

Battries dries out soon.


I've done a bit of research on this and am finding from my own experience with my powershot that it's the battery that is the issue. Not all rechargeable batts are equal. There are several cheap rechargeables that don't hold charges. Stick with a name brand battery. Canon makes brand batteries, Energizer etc... but I have found that the my cheaper batteries-even if they're rated a higher capacity, have been the let-down. It is an investment for the good batteries but it pays off when you don't miss the shots you want to take... K

Flashes low battery with only a few shots. Battery is new. Also what brand of rechargable batteries do you suggest?


cameras eat batteries fast. the best cameras have rechargable battery packs.

i'd use energizer or duracell. try to stay away from alkiline rechargables as they wear out fast. try Nickle Medal Hydrate Batteries (NiMH).

Sounds like you have a bad CCD. You can try contacting Canon to check out your options on how to get this repaired. Unfortunately the S2IS is not on their CCD recall list of cameras.
