If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Battery Dont Charge

jpierre's solution (in another thread) was right on the money. Touch the positive (+)end of the 9v battery to the positive (+) end of the camera battery.Leave them touching for a few seconds (10 seconds should be more thansufficient). Seems these lithium-ion batteries are subject to a'digital memory.' Subjecting it to a volt surge almost three timeshigher seems to clear it.

SOURCE: one day camera just stopped turning on.

Try the following:
1). Check batteries whether they are fully charged.
2). Check with Battery terminal are clean. You can clean them with a ear bud using some alcohol or spirit. Wipe the battery terminal with a clean dry cloth.
3). confirm that the memory car slot/battery cover is securly closed.
4). Reload the battery several times. This will also remove poor contact between camera and battery terminals.
5).Check battery are loaded in the correct direction.

If the probem persists, you might need to take it to the service center.

SOURCE: camera wont turn on

Camera will not power on. Canon posted a bulletin regarding a possible solution for some SD950's at the following website. Apparently this model has a screw that can come loose inside and the camera will not power. They just found this to be the case with my SD950, and they fixed it for free. It was outside of the warranty by a couple months. They even sent me a prepaid UPS shipping label to send them my camera for repair. See the link below for more on this possible solution:

If you bought the camera in January, it's still under warranty for a year. When you get home call 1-800-OK-CANON to arrange warranty repair. They're usually very good about it, and will try to make things right.

My battery sits in the charger and the light turns orange (charging) but then turns green(charged) in 5 min. so then i put it in my camera but its still dead. Whats wrong?


Unfortunately your battery may be dead and needs to be replaced. The batteries for your camera have a microchip on them that controls the charging circuit and it is not allowing the battery to be fully charged.

Try a new battery and see if the problem still persists.

Camera wont charge. Was for a while but now displaying batteries cannot be charged.


sounds you may have to replace the batteries, but try taking out the battery from the camera and press the power button for about 10 seconds. Keep it turned off without the battery for 5 min then reconnect the charged batteries

My phone is completly charged and when i pull it off charge about half an hour after depending on how much i use it, it turns itself off and then when i try turning it back on the Lg start up comes on then...


Hi,
The happy news is there is no problem with phone,the hardware of your phone is in good condition.The problem is the battery.The battery of the phone is dead.This a step behind Stone dead stage.Next state of your battery is stone dead.You can't even use it more.Now the phone Battery will act like charging.Your battery can take small amount charge only because it is dead..Even though you charge your battery for 2 days continuously it will stay for 30 min or 10 min depending the charge usage.

Solution for this is you have to replace it soon..Go to nearest shop and check this with their battery and buy it.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is
resolved or post a comment for further
assistance.


thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

I keep getting the message: Turn the power off and on again. Just bought the Cybershot DSC-W370 tonight and it worked fine, until the battery was charged. ???


Why don't remove the battery? First, switch off the camera then remove the battery. Wait for 5-10 mins then put the battery back on and charge it straightaway. remember to leave the camera off while charging. let it charge full then unplug and switch the camera back on. let me know if this works for you.

My digital camera wont turn on after leaving it in a hot car.


high temperature is a lithium batteries worst enemy .. also the LCD display doesnt like that .. you might try removing the battery for 10 min .. check to make sure its not swollen .. then replace it and see if that resets your camera back to a working condition .. see if the camera will work with the charger hooked up .. if not your camera might be toast .. if it does work on the charger then the battery may have been damaged by the heat ..

Screen wont come on


Does it only light up when you adapter is plugged in? If so try taking out the battery and making sure it is in correctly. Press the power button under the screen on the side if the unit and the middle circle in the directional key pad, there should be a menu that comes up.

Nikon D90 Memory Card Access Blinking


It's a deadly common problem of D90. Fixation:Simply go to the DSLR repair shop and ask them to change the power circuit board of the camera. Will take $60-70 if the board available. Reason of issue:The power control IC get short and feedback the battery power to the battery causing the draining out and other problem like the top LCD back lamp turned ON after turning on the camera. Careful:To avoid this issue in future, after full charge of the battery, do not put it in the camera right then. Wait for the battery to cool down for 5-10 min and then put it in. With the full charge, the battery hold high ampere for a short time. It could damage the power distributor IC suddenly if you put it in the camera right after a full charge. Best, Leo>>from personal experience<<
