I have replaced batteries with new and double checked how they were inserted. I have triggered the power switch several times and nothing happens. I have removed the memory card and also tried to power the unit on. Ken Baker
Hi Ken if you bought your 735 new it has a cradle a (docking station)if you had tried the batteries and still not powering up you need to eliminate other possibilitys try powering up the camera on the docking station make sure power cord is on if the cam fires up that way then this will no doubt a camera shop fix,I repair on the side would be interested in trying the repair to at least give you some more closure on deciding if the cost of the repair is worth considering these are and been outdated quite sometime ago and a repair could supercede the price of the camera when purchased if you want e-mail me and i could try a few walk threws with you and see if we can cure it.

If you think this has to do with the battery power, you also should check the contacts in the battery compartment. If the are not shiny, you can try to clean them with a dry cloth or a cotton swap. Don't use sharp tools in or close by a camera.
Make sure the battery is inserted correct and the battery cover should be locked correct.
If the camera was not used for a long time, perhaps some contacts are oxidised. Those contacts you can switch, try to switch them several times. Open and close the battery door several times. Press the on of button several times. Put the battery in and remove it several times. And hope the contacts will work again.
Your camera will work with AA batteries.
Always be sure the batteries are charged.
Insert the batteries correct plus to plus and minus to minus. Only one battery the wrong way around and the camera won't work.
Check contacts of the batteries and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Also check if the battery door is closed correct. Most cameras do have a switch connected to the battery door. If the switch does not work correct, it could be you can't switch on your camera.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They can't deliver enough power and can start leaking, causing damage to your camera.

I'd bet a bad switch. You may be able to squirt wd-40 in the key opening, but disconnect the battery, operate the switch many times.
Hopefully, the wd-40 will lubricate the switch and remove water and corrosion to the point of allowing to operate. Wd-40 is flammable, so wait for several hrs before reconnecting the battery and trying again to see if it operates properly. Otherwise, if it isn't working, you probably need a new switch. Double check your connections to and from the switch to make sure you have good connections.
Check the battery for the correct voltage , if lower than marked , thenit will not charge and so must be JUMP started using an external charger. If however after inserting to the phone there is no trigger, check the contacts, check the power at the adaptor.
If not the switch on power switch must be checked for continuity. If not the mother board is a suspect.
the trigger mechanism is either worn or dirty, this wouldnt be a battery issue. the batteries in the pack depending on how old the drill is are probably nicad batteries. they will loose their pep after repeated cycleing over time. ive seen people replace the batteries in the packs if your handy with a soldering iron if not new packs are the answer, for the switch, if you dont want to dis assemble and clean, try blowing it out with air hose around the trigger area
MGE Pulsar 3000 is an online UPS. try to check the battery first if its ok. coz for an online UPS it will need to have a good working UPS battery to trigger the switching relays to on the online UPS unlike backups UPS that can be turn on without any batteries
I don't want to offend you, please don't take it that way, but since your problems began with the addition of the new battery... I have to ask the question. Are you absolutely sure you bought the right battery for your camera?
It takes a NB-2LH battery pack. If your sure you purchased the correct battery for the camera, and since you dropped it, I would check to make sure it seats properly in the camara and that it locks properly. Also the cover should close with a CLICK sound. If it doesn't then perhaps the battery is not locking in properly. Double check it and let me know if you still have problems.
This sounds like your release switch is faulty. I have repaired several of these 5D cameras with similar strange symptoms. Basically what happens is the first switch on you release assembly cracks and breaks thus making continuous contact. When this happens it basically locks up your camera. The solution is to replace the release switch assembly. The repair should not cost you more than $150. Hope this helps. Wes Kauffman
