Hi,

Unfortunately what you have described indicates that there is a problem with the main circuit board.Make sure that the battery is fine.Clean the battery connector with a cleaning solution as dust and dirt could cause this problem. You could try :-


1. Remove the battery and memory card from the camera.
2. Let the camera sit with the battery and memory card removed
for approximately 20 minutes.
3. Reinstall the battery and power on the camera. If your camera still
doesn't turn on, unfortunately, your camera will require service to
correct the problem.

Note - On most occasions the cost of repair is quite high as compared to the cost of the product and investing the money in the new camera is a wise option.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Canon a630 turns on then shuts down


1) press the power button for a moment
2) confirm that memory card is securely closed
3)batteries loaded in wroing directin
4) batteries ARE not the same right type , use only alkaline or NImh
5)insufficiente battery voltage.
6)poot contact between camera and battery terminals.
7) if this DOESNOT resolve the problem you must go to the repair shop service, some short in the SYSCOM and circuit associates are faulty.
God bless you

I have a canon power shot A70 digital camera and I cannot get it to turn on even when inserting new batteries.


I don t have a solution, but I got a similar problem. When I install new batteries, they only last for maybe 10 snaps- snaps ,then the "battery" light comes on and camera shuts off. I ve tried several sets of different batteries so its not a battery problem.

Power shot A70-15 8.0 pixels 6X zoom

Maybe someone can help us out

CANON POWERSHOT A300


If it's a short, not much that you can do other than try to track down the short location with a voltmeter. But I do have doubts that a short is causing this. The A300 is a notoriously power hungry camera. It's the first digital Canon to use two AA batteries. It takes great pictures, but unfortunately Canon didn't spend much time focusing on battery efficiency in getting the new two battery design out the door. As a work-around, try taking pictures by shutting off the display (press the DISP button) and using the optical viewfinder. Also the camera works best with high power rechargeable NiMH batteries rated 2500mah or better. Very inexpensive NiMH batteries are generally weak, and if no rating is shown on the package or battery, should be avoided.

Canon Powershot A630 problem


The LCD screen may be overtaxing your batteries, resulting in shutdown. Are you using alkaline batteries, or worse yet "super heavy duty" batteries? If so, some brands of regular batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Performance varies by brand and shelf life of the batteries (how long were they on the store shelf before you bought them? Their expiration date may be listed on the package.).

Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Many retailers sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

You need to power it with rechargable batteries. with the MAH being no less than 2000. I bought a charger which came with 2batteries for less than a tenner

Battery drains quickly


"It shouldn't do that." But you already know that. Even with everything "on" in the camera it still shouldn't do that.

I think you need to try a) alkaline batteries and b) new NiMh batteries. If it still persists then your camera has a deeper problem and needs to be sent in for repair.
