Lens won't open-doesn't sound as if fully powered

I have drained and recharged the batteries. When you put the batteries in, you usually hear a sound of it powering up. Mine is just making a feeble sound. The lens and flash do not open up. I can get the display screen to work, but it keeps telling there are no pictures. Before this problem, I had it plugged into my computer, and it wasn't recognized, so I unplugged it. Then I get an error message saying the device was improperly put away. Can I reset the camera? Help...

SOURCE: Lens not Extending

this problem is caused because that the lens servo can`t move the unit of lens. this menssage mean that the sistem don't go out the lens. You have to sincronise the mechanism of the lens, carefully disarm the unit and review that the gears are ok.

SOURCE: camera batteries drain quickly

Open the battery door and check the contact between the camera and the batteries. Most often then not there is just a bad contact and it's ruinning your baterry life.
Make sure that the contact are well placed and that there is no rust or dirt build up around there.

SOURCE: Jammed Lens - Olympus Fe-330

I called the store I bought it from, as well as the Olypmus toll free number. They both told me I had to mail my camera to them with a brief description of the problem. It is still under warranty, but I have to pay for shipping to get it to them. They will repair it and send it back to me. Do not try and fix the camera yourself, instead get it fixed professionally with all the proper tools once and for all.

My vigoro wont turn on when on Manual

This problem is usually related to the batteries lacking enough power to fully open the water flow valve. That's why you would hear a click rather than a strong thump sound. Batteries don't last very long in these devices, especially if you have set the device to water twice a day and do additional manual activations. Rechargeable batteries will not usually keep their charge as long as alkaline batteries, but will save you money in the long run.

Shutters on the lens won't fully open

Stuck automatic lens covers are fairly. But usually it's very easy to fix, without even opening the camera. See this link for troubleshooting steps for this problem.

Revive drill driver battery packs

Rechargeable batteries do have a lifespan, they won't recharge forever. If you have fully discharged the batteries then fully recharged them and they still don't have full power or they only last a couple minutes then they are done. If they won't charge or the charger shows them as defective, the only fix is to replace them.

Your battery power has been drained. First thing I would do is to charge the battery via using another car to jump start the car and let it run for an hour or two. Or get a charger and jump the car. Either way I would run it for an hour or two recharge the battery. If that doesn't work then you will have to replace the battery.

Hi I slipped in the garage and dropped the camera when it was on==batteries came out and lens of course didn't fully retract. Put batteries back in and the green light comes on and beeps but won't...

Sorry about your moms camera Terry... but it sounds like it needs the lens replaced. If the lens is stuck out at an angle you can *SNAP* the inner lens section back into place if you're lucky, and it will work again like normal.

I don't know your model, but a refurb lens can usually be installed for about $75 including return shipping. You should check the replacement cost of a used camera and see which is cheaper in the long run.

Hope this helps!

Your battery has probably just reached the end of it's service life, or developed a memory after repeated chargeings without being fully depleted. All rechargeable batteries have an average maximum number of duty cycles. (drain and charge) If your charger has a deep cycle feature, try using this to completely drain and recharge the battery. If it doesn't, try putting it in your trimmer and locking the trigger back for a few hours, then recharge it. If neither of these work, it's time for a new battery. If you do get a new battery, be sure to COMPLETELY drain the battery before recharging by locking the trigger back every few uses to avoid developing a memory and help extend the life of your new battery.

E10 and s45 same problem

the batteries needed for the cameras are quite high powered

though the batteries show that they are fuly charged most times they have lost their actual capacity of power storage in them so not being able to supply enough to start the camera best way to test this is to start the camera on preview mode if this works then you will need to buy a new set of rechargable batteries, i would suggest to take batteries in the range of 2000MAh to 2500MAh and

the normal batteries will not be able to sustain long even for normal lens open and retract functions, instead of normal batteries try LR6 varieties (eg: Duracell, Energizer, etc)

WILL NOT POWER ON

Your camera is still under warranty. Recommend letting Canon try to correct this, instead of trying to fix this yourself.

Here's the support page for your camera:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=14905

Or you can call them directly at 1 (800) 828-4040.
