Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

3 times i've the same problem with my camera, 3 times they've sent it back. The problem still exists. A new battery, properly charged by me, the camera takes between 1 and 5 photos and then the camera goes dead. I was told by Canon that the battery lid on the camera was causing a short, they said 'Problem solved.' Nope, the problem is still there and i've run out of extended warranty. Please, please help.

Lemon law with company and replacements normally work in sets of 3. Now that you have had them send you the same type of camera, and the same problem has occured 3 times, demand that they replace it with a comparable or camera of greater value. Worked for my Droid to Incredible

Camileo P10 charging problem


I had the same problem with the P10 not charging via USB, I purchased mine second hand so it came with no charger. I assumed it would charge by the USB cable but it did not, the red light flashes but doesn't charge. Luckily I have an external battery charger for a different camera i got some years ago that takes a similar battery , the P10 battery didn't fit properly so I had to place it at a 45 degree angle into the charger making sure the outer contacts were lined up properly and taped it into place. After an hour it was fully charged and the camera is working fine. The charger is a 4.2 volt charger. New external chargers can be picked up on ebay cheaply

My camera wont stay on it bleeps once then turns off


That sounds like your battery could be dead/not hold a charge. If you've charged your battery already and your camera still won't stay off and turns off right away, it's time to purchase a new battery for your Samsung TL105.

You can purchase replacement batteries quite cheap here:

My battery for canon camera 550d flashes orange when charging, its been 4 hours now and it hasnt turned green yet.. I am charging it first time.. is this normal


Okay what happens sometimes is the charger gets into a feed back loop. What to do is remove the battery unplug the charger wait a few seconds (Maybe 20/30) plug the charger back into the outlet and then put the battery back in the charger. It should start to charge again and a few minutes later go to the blinking for full charge green.

It'll happen the other way as well meaning if the battery gets a memory (they say they don't but they do) you need to unplug the battery let is sit till it's cool and put it back on charge again. I've had this problem many times and have put it on charge and back off several times with in 15 minutes before it started to charge as it should.

Also these batteries do have a life span and if it's a three year old battery with many charges it could be failing meaning it just won't take a full charge.

Camera turns on, then right back off


I ended up calling Pentax Customer Service, who told me that this indicates an internal problem with the camera. So, I sent it to Pentax to get it fixed. I'm told turn-around time is usually 2-3 weeks, and that I'll be called with a cost estimate before repairs are made. My fingers are crossed!

hi

i know its sounds odd but yes the charge on the batteries (Voltage/Amps) is falling short for the camera to start as it takes more power to run the camera than to just preview your pictures

one suggestion i can give here is
(this could be potentially hezardous so tread caution)
if you have rechargale batts then try electro jump to them take any source which is roughly 2-3times the voltage of the batteries (eg: if the batt voltage is 1.25 volts take a 3-5volts source) and connect the +ve wire to the +ve and -ve wire to the -ve of the battery and hold for 10 to 15 secs and then immediatly place it for charging and let them fill charge and use them till the batteries are completely drained
repeat this cycle for 2 -3 times and batteries will come back to life

be careful to connect the wires correctly else they might destroy the batts also not to hold for more than 10-15 secs

cheers
pls rate if this was any help

When I plug the camera in to charge I get a flashing red light indicating a charge error. The camera is only 6 months old. Why won't it charge?


Hi,I just found a soultion on another website and it appears to have worked for me.Apparently the battery loses it memory when fully discharged,to fix this take a 9v battery and place the terminals + to + and - to - with the camera battery for 30 seconds or so then put the battery back in the camera and charge as normal.I just did this and it seems to be charging and the red light is solid.hope this helps.

Battery


Hello!

I will suggest you that you should claimed the warranty if ever there is,

Because sometimes the camera charger got a problem, If you have an spare battery maybe you should try to prove that charger is good and only the battery is busted.

This problem maybe solve by removing the battery and fix it back. and then charge it again.

But its better to enjoy the warranty. You should decide if the cause is much reasonble by changing the battery or by going to the vendor and claim the warranty.

best regards, melnavz
