When the power is provided through AC adapter, the camera will NOT automatically turn OFF or go into stand-by mode. This is useful when using the camera in a studio environment.

Auto power off


Link to user manual

No you can't turn off this feature

Nathan Petersen June 17th, 2005, 04:03 PM Is there away to turn the auto power off off. I dont think there is, just thought I'd ask, thanks. Don Palomaki June 17th, 2005, 08:47 PM Not on the original XL1. It will drop into STANDBY from PAUSE if there is a tape in the transport after around 5 minutes. If there is NOT a tape in the camcorder it will not not drop into STANDBY but will remain operating as a camera. Xander Christ June 17th, 2005, 09:25 PM Canon suggests that the only way to keep the XI from shutting off is to use the AC adapter as the power source, not the battery. I haven't tried it, so I don't know if it's true. Don Palomaki June 18th, 2005, 07:33 AM True - in that when using the battery, the camcorder will shut down when the battery runs out of available charge. However, using the A/C adapter does not prevent the XL1 from going into standby if a tape is in the camcorder. Nathan Petersen June 18th, 2005, 04:52 PM Canon suggests that the only way to keep the XI from shutting off is to use the AC adapter as the power source, not the battery. I haven't tried it, so I don't know if it's true.

No it still does it with the AC adapter, Im not even using the battery. It makes no sense to have the auto power off when shooting indoors while using the AC adapter, its just stupid. Don Palomaki June 19th, 2005, 05:59 AM Again, the key point is having a tape in the XL1. After about 5 minuts it goes into Standby mode (not the same as turning the power off with the dial). This is a carryover from pure consumer camcorders - to save battery and reduce damage to tape and head wear from a camcorder left in pause mode for a long time.

Pro users complained, so the XL1s had an option to disable this feature so that only the tape transport (VCR portion) is turned off after 5 minutes, the camera head continues to run. link to above thread

I was changing the batteries on my Fuji S1 pro camera and did not shut off the camera first. Now It won't turn on at all. I have put three sets of batteries in to make sure it wasn't a faulty battery.


Hi,

Check the batteries.



These camera's require Alkaline batteries too.


Connect camera to an AC adapter.


Remove all batteries, sd cards, disconnect AC adapter, wait a minute,



re-insert batteries and reconnect adapter. lay flat on the table.



Turn on the camera.



Using the mains power gives more power to the lens motor too,



Sit it on a table with ac mains in, turn on while flat on it's back, hopefully it will

Turn on and auto-focus for you.



You could blow the camera with "canned air" too, to release any particles on the camera



The smallest particle in the lens barrel, will jam up the lens and system to a stand still.


If problem persists, i am afraid, you need to seek professional on site or send the unit for repair.

Hope i helped you.

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

Power supply for Olympus fe-130


(In addition to the batteries provided with the camera, the following types of battery can be used. Choose the power source best suited to the situation.
AA alkaline batteries/ Oxyride batteries
The number of pictures that you can take may vary considerably depending on the
battery manufacturer and shooting conditions.
AA NiMH batteries (rechargeable batteries)
Olympus NiMH batteries are rechargeable and economical. For details, refer to the instruction manual for your charger.
(Lithium battery packs (CR-V3) and AA manganese (zinc-carbon) batteries
cannot be used.
(Power consumption by the camera varies depending on which functions are used.
(Power is consumed continuously during the conditions described below causing
batteries to become exhausted quickly.
• The zoom is used repeatedly.
• The shutter button is pressed halfway repeatedly in shooting mode, activating the auto focus.
• The monitor is left on for an extended period of time.
• The camera is connected to a computer or printer.
(The battery life varies greatly depending on the type of battery, manufacturer,
shooting conditions, etc. Because of this, there may be cases where the camera
turns itself off without displaying the battery level warning, or displays the battery
level warning sooner than usual.

The camera also has an optional accessory of an AC adapter that can be used as an alternative power source. It is model number E-7AU.
An AC adapter is useful for time-consuming tasks such as image downloads to
a computer or when running a slideshow for a long period of time.
To use the AC adapter with this camera, the optional multi-adapter (CB-MA1) is
necessary. Do not use any other AC adapter with this camera.
Note
• Do not remove or load the battery or connect or disconnect the AC adapter or
multi-adapter while the camera is on or the camera is connected to the other
equipment. Doing so could affect the camera’s internal settings or functions.
• The AC adapter can be used within the range of AC 100 V to AC 240 V (50/60
Hz). When using the shape of abroad, you may need a plug adapter to convert
the plug to match the AC wall outlet. For details, ask at your local electrical shop
or travel agent.
• Do not use travel voltage converters as they could damage the AC adapter.

The only functioning modes are the picture viewing & set up modes


Have Sony DSC-P73 with exact problem. Only turns on in SETUP mode and when switches to all other modes camera shuts off usually with lens extended. Have tried new batteries - new memory stick - new everything and nothing helped. I just took out the batteries and attached the AC ADAPTER and all works perfectly now so problem is with either batteries - battery compartment or battery connections. As long as you do not need a "PORTABLE" camera, using AC Adapter solves this problem :)

Camera lense


There is a very very easy way to fix this problem..

This can happen if...
1.) If the battery dies when the camera lens is open (and you close it manually, or sometimes, even if you dont.)
2.) If you used a AC adapter with too much voltage or not enough. (this can happen even if you used the correct voltage, refrain from using AC adapters at all)
... all together its ethier a voltage or camera lens problem...

TIPS:
1.)NEVER PUSH THE LENS IN AFTER CAMERA DIES, BUY A NEW BATTERY IMMEDIATLY AND TURN IT BACK ON, CLOSING THE LENS!

2.)NEVER USE AN AC ADAPTER, USE A RECHARGEABLE BATTERY OR A REGULAR BATTERY!

..to fix this...

Do as i say..

1.) Remove battery
2.) Remove front plate (screw driver may be needed)
3.) Check all gears, make sure they are correctly fitted in place)
4.) Move the gear manually to make the lens come out.
5.) keep it out, put the front plate back together.
6.) reinsert the battery, turn it on.


or...
1.) Remove the battery.
2.) Wait about 6-8 hours.
3.) Reinsert the battery.

or...
1.) Remove the battery.
2.) Try hooking it up through AC adapter, put correct voltage.
3.) Try turning it on.
4.) Remove AC adapter, reinsert battery.
5.) Turn it on.



Hopefully all this information helped,
