    I've had my Canon G5 for the past 4 yrs and never had any problems. Last week, out of the blue, the camera would not turn on. I tried new batteries. I tried charging it and the light won't come on that shows its charging. If anyone has any idea what the problem could be please let me know. I checked with Ritz's camera and they would charge me $184 to fix it. It would not make sense to pay this much to fix my camera when its selling on ebay for less then that.

If you can open it and you have experience and skills in fixing electronics, you can try in repair it.

Check the fuses on the printed board circuits.

They are labeled with a P, H or K in the middle of them.

Check them for zero ohms to test them with a meter,.

If you prefer not to do it, then it needs to be professionally serviced, which may be expensive (at least more than buy an used one).

Hi, as per your information your camera 2 years old but not used much. You buy a new battery 1st time when you charged you see the gree light. But camera not working. When you try to charge the battery again you seen the red light. Its mean your charger have a problem. So what you do now? Ok try these.
Remove the power connection of the charger. then fixed the battery there slowly & properly. After that plug on the charger again. If the same thing happens then unplug the charger & plug in in different point. Then see what showing. If again red light then wait 1 hours and waiting for green signal. If there is no green signal showing then visit a service center with your charger. Tell them your problem. They will fixed the charger for you. Don't worry your camera is ok.
Your new battery or your charger one of then damaged. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Battery shows empty with new batteries. Recent development. Put batteries in, take a couple shots, battery is empty. Tried with several pairs of batteries. Contacts OK and tight. Suspect a software...


Take a look in your camera's menus. There should be a place where you can select rechargeable or non-rechargeable batteries. That setting enables or disables the battery charging circuit. If you are using rechargeable batteries, the camera must be set accordingly so that the battery charger will turn on. If you are using
Alkaline batteries such as Duracell or other types of non-rechargeable batteries the charger must be disabled. If you do not set that parameter correctly, you will get the symptoms you describe.

Battery wont charge and the light just blinks on and off


If your charge light will not work, then do the following..
First make sure you have power where you are plugging it in. If you have power, then plug in the charger, (here I am not sure you are talking about a charger or using a cord to charge the battery in the camera,.. some can be charged that way) and see if the light comes on. If not, then do the following. use a volt meter and check to see if you have voltage in the charger at the connections for the battery. If you have the correct voltage ,power with the charger plugged in, then the battery is suspect and more than likely bad. Replace the battery with a new one.
If you have no power, or low voltage, then the charger is defective, either in the cable or internally. Get another battery charger for your battery.

If not then it will work fine in the original charger if it is the same kind of battery.

Casio exilim camera charger


I read that if you connect a 9V battery (+ to +, - to -) to the NP-20 for 10 seconds, it will jump start the battery and provide just enough charge for the battery charger to recognize the battery. The problem is that the NP-20 battery becomes so low that the charger will not charge it. I also read that you can use 2 D size batteries if you don't have a 9V battery.

Just make this connection to the NP-20 battery, not while in the charger! Only connect it for about 10 seconds or so. Everyone who tried it was successful and the battery would charge when it was put back into the charger. There should be no need to buy a replacement battery.

Downloading digital photos to my Vaio Computer


Visit this link for the manual. Click this link for Frequently Asked Questions?

You have two options for downloading pictures.
  1. Use a SD card reader, fast download.
  2. Use the camera and the USB Cradle (Page 180-187 of your owner's manual) There are many more steps than can be described here. The overview is:
    1. Plug power to the cradle
    2. Connect the cradle to the computer using the USB cord
    3. Mount the camera in the cradle
    4. View and copy the images from the camera using your favorite software. Perhaps Picasa2 from Google.
The battery model is NP-20 and the charger for this is "the special BC-10L Battery Charger" and can be purchased here, or the casio model from here.
