Will not turn on

Just will not turn on. Have tried new and fresh batteries. And took to camera shop where purchased. All they could recommend was that we ship it back to Canon for repairs.

Check the card connector pins - if a card has been inserted improperly the pins can get bent, shorting the power supply of the camera. The only solution is to have a repair shop replace the fuses, about a $100 -$125 job.

Just purchased a finepix s1800 and fitted new batterys but it wont turn on . can anyone help. thanks nige


Many times these digital camera require photo lithium batteries or rechargeables. I recommend you Purchase these first and try it out. Many times the standard household batteries just do not have enough power to turn on digital cameras. If you are still experiencing problems after new batteries then return back to store for another camera because that model may have a problem.

Canon powershot G9 will not turn on. Took it to Best buy. Its not the battery or the battery charger. Any suggestions? I took 4 pics yesterday, turned it off, then went to turn it back on to take another...


The Canon G9 has a problem where two screws in the top of the camera work themselves loose over time, then fall out and short out the fuse on what's called the DC/DC board.

This board needs to be replaced, both screws need to be found within the camera (if both fell out), and they need to be put back in place and held in with 'Locktite' so they don't fall out again.

If you do a Google search for "g9 no power repair" you will see in the #3 position Darntoothysam com, where you can have this repair performed for $85 total! This includes the part, installation, and return shipping of the camera.

If you want to do the repair yourself (no instructions included, sorry) you may purchase the part you need for $48 including shipping.

Hope this helps!

Lens error


There are 2 fixes I know for this you can try.


1. Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.

2. If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. You don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the sd card and turn it on one last time.

New batteries in, turn on and Polaroid comes on and then goes to black screen and off.


Not all batteries are created equal, especially in digital cameras. Try lithium ion batteries (Energizer Advanced or Duracell PowerPix) or quality NiMH rechargable batteries. Regular alkalines, especially some of the cheaper ones, are not recommended regardless of what the manual says.

Fuji A850 will not power up


I had the same problem, same camera. So I checked to see if other digital cameras had the same problem, and some did. Seems to be with the batteries. I took out my memory card, and reinstalled the batteries that came with my camera, I've only had it a few days. Turned it on and it worked, so I took a pic, and then turned it back off and reinstalled the memory card, and made sure it was formatted. Turned the camera back on and it worked, and took another pic with no problems. The batteries I have right now are Panasonic Alkaline for Digital. They seem to be a heavier battery, because the cheaper ones are lighter and didn't work. So I say try that brand or make sure the batteries are for digital purposes. Hope this helps.

NIKON D80 MY CAMERA IS DEAD


if after replacing the batteries with new ones or freshly charged ones your camera does not start up, high chances that something internal has failed - that needs some professional checks to be done. The cam is built to identify and report most issues that can be corrected by the user. so if it does not turn on, chances are you need support from a camera repair shop. (Alt : one step that you already tried could have helped is the factory reset - there should be one or two buttons on the cam that needs to be pressed together to reset the cam)

Will not charge batt


I am sure you ave figured out what to do for this poblem but if not...I had this problem with a nikon I just purchased. The guy I bought it from said it was the battery charger, so I purchased a battery charger on ebay-"new nikon d1 battery charger" was the actual listing and it cost about $40.00. You can get the actuall charger that comes with it on ebay- but it cost alot more money. I recieved the product, tried it on my battery (which was suppose to be new) and it still would not charge. I took all my stuff (battery, new charger, old charger) to a local battery shop in town and they tested it all for me. Come to find out it was not the charger all along, it was the "new" battery- UGHH! The whole point to this story is this- if you have not aken your battery and charger to a battery shop yet- do that first. Then go from there. Like I said- you canget the charger on ebay- and the battery can be bought for about $36.00 too. I would not recommend buying both like I did! Good luck.
