I had the same problem. I tried three different charged batterie sets. Since it was way too costly to bring in for repair I just stuck it in a drawer, About a week ago I pulled the camera out & tried again. & it worked!!! The only issue is that it makes a crackel noise when I use the flash...hopefully it will hang in there!!!

Canon Powershot SX120is wont turn on


This kind of problem happen because not all of AAA batteries in market are match with canon standards. so changed his mind about using disposable batteries on new models. your camera need new DC/DC board which is expensive(between 50 to 90 dollars). there is video in you tube to how replacing the board. But better suggestion is getting a new camera with chargeable battery.

Camera wont turn on in the photo mode. batteries are fine and canview stored images. Do you know whats wrong? tks


You said batteries are fine and you can view the images. Sometimes a battery needs to be top shape to get the camera fully going.
this company can do a great repair and is very reliable.

when you send your camera in make sure to include the battery so they can test it out and make sure it is providing the full energy needed.

Camera wont come on


If it is still in warranty, it is better to send it for repair with canon or with the extended warranty company.

If it's not in warranty, then you have to send it for diagnostics and repair.

The reason for won't power on may be a number of reasons:

1. Damaged switch that senses when the battery door is closed (or a broken tab in the battery door that presses the switch);
2. Damaged switch that senses when the CF memory door is closed (or a broken tab in the memory door that presses the switch);
3. Defective DC/DC power board;
4. Defective main board

Diagnosctis and repair of this problem requires a repairman with skills and tools to do it properly.

Depending of what is broken and to whom you send your camera for repair, the repair cost may be in in the range of $100.00 - $200.00.

Camera will not power up changed battery just went dead Nikon D70


Fixing a Dead Nikon D70 - Green Blinking Light My first-generation Nikon D70, which I bought the day it was released to the market a few years back, died on me a few months ago. Without a card in it, it won't start, and when you insert a CF card in the slot, the green data-access indicator flashes on and off. If I hold down the Menu button, the menu flashes on and off along with the green LED.
d70_87x1.jpgAs it turns out, this is a known problem with the original Nikon D70 cameras, and Nikon USA has a service bulletin out on the camera body. They'll repair it free of charge.
So, if you have the same problem, visit this service bulletin page, http://nikonusa.com/Service-And-Support/Service-Advisories/D70-Service-Advisory.page click on the D70, and you can access a PDF file that you'll need to print, fill out and send to Nikon along with your camera body. Be sure to take your camera strap off and remove the battery, and don't send any lenses or other accessories.
Mine's on it's way to Nikon now - they say the turnaround is five days (plus shipping time).

I have a CANON powershot a510 and it doesnt even turn on...


Here's some thing to try for a camera that won't power on.

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/simple-fix-for-dead-cameras-that-wont.html

For your camera, there's a tiny white slide switch on the battery door that closes when the door is closed. Make sure that the switch isn't damaged. Also check the little plastic nib on the battery door that pushes on the switch when the door is closed.

Fuji F10 No power


You said that you changed the battery, did you put it in the right way around?.

I had exactly the same trouble, changed the battery (got it on ebay for £2.99) charged it and it worked.

Having said that, I closed the lense from external power. If the camera wont operate from external power then the camera is probably dead.

Camera won't turn on


try removing the battery for 24 hours and allow the battery to charge for that long as well unless you charge the battery in the camera with a docking station then just leave it out also take a good look at the lcd when you try and turn it on see if the image is really dark but their is still a image. one this that I have noticed while working on casio is that a lens error can cause the lcd to be very dark and you can barley see a image but it is there so it causes you to thing the camera is dead. If you do see a image then the problem lies inside and needs to be serviced but if you don't then it lies in the power source. ie battery or power circuit of the camera. after the battery shows charged have it tested with a ohm meter it can help determine if it is a good battery. you can have it checked sometimes at radio shack or a place called batteries plus if you do not have one. I hope this helps out I know it can be frustrating but it happens. good luck.
