Question about Canon PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH / IXUS 800 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Won´t power on

Hi, I´m currently travelling in Bolivia and in the last few days have gone from humid lowlands to freezing highlands. I´ve found after a particularly wet evening that the camera started playing up. First, the LCD fades out, then on turning the camera off, the camera won´t power back on. I took the battery out and let the camera dry out (if it needed to) and after a day it started working again. But after a second day of rain the same problem has occurred, only this time it won´t power on at all. Any suggestions are welcome, as my camera is invaluable over here. Many thanks.

    Problem continued....
    After a full week of the camera refusing to power on, it is once again working, but I am concerned that this problem will re-occur. Is it possible that it was the varying weather conditions or is there a more inherent problem.

    Once again, thanks for any help provided.

When and how low pressure and high pressure cell are formed

If you are about weather pressure, then on the site Studydaddy.com I found this information, there's a lot more on this subject and not only. Come and read)
Answer:
In the tropics, the sun's rays fall almost flat on the earth's surface. Heated air rushes upwards, and an area of low atmospheric pressure forms at the surface, where there is a calm. There cooler air masses flow, creating at times only weak changeable winds. These movements of air masses determine the weather in the tropics. There, in the lowlands, the greenhouse climate dominates - it is hot and humid. Since at noon the sun is almost at the zenith, the heat reaches 30 ° and above. At night, the air is very little cooled, because there is high humidity. Early in the morning it's slightly easier to breathe, but soon there will be powerful cumulus clouds in the sky, often falling down in the downpour, which sometimes lasts all night.
North and south of this belt, in the "horse latitudes", the cooled air descends to the surface, and there are regions with constant high pressure (anticyclone). The descending air masses in the form of a large spiral rotate in the Northern Hemisphere clockwise, and in the Southern hemisphere rotate against it. In these latitudes, clear windless weather is often established, in the daytime it is warm, at night it is cool. Other areas of anticyclones appear at the poles.

Olevia 537-b11, blue light won't come, even when power cord is replaced. Please help!!!!

Hi,



Since you've already replaced the power cord and still the led light won't came on, this is an indication that the power supply board of your unit is dead. If it is not under warranty period(if so, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free) open the back cover and check the continuity of the fuse using the multimeter, if you found it open replaced it with the same current(ampere) ratings and then try to turn on the TV. If the replacement fuse blew again, this is an indication of more serious problem on that board. If the replacement fuse didn't resolve the issue, other parts on that board gone to malfunction as well. If this is the case, I would advice you to replaced the entire board for your convenient. The cost will almost the same rather than troubleshoot it. Check the actual part no of your board and check this LINK.







Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

Thanks for using fixya.

Need some advise, no problem starting the car CLK (02) but the dashboard warning lights ie handbrake, engine, abs etc won't switch itself off. The next day start the car again and it's gone!...

All those warnings are controlled by the computer, so it might be a computer glich. But most likely it was hot in the car and maybe even humid in it that caused an electrical component not to work. Then when you started it up the next day it was cooler or less humid. Which is an indication that something is getting weak (electrically).

Just shut off the care returned 2 hours later no go got a boost went for a drive left the car running for awhile than it start to get like it was going to stall went on g=for a littlwe while than died....

Hi your problem sounds like the battery is gone and won`t take a charge. When your engine is running the alternator is supplying the electrical power to run the car ( and normally charging the
battery as well )
Even though it seems strange for the battery to go suddenly, it does happen.
How old is the bat. Most last about 5 years with normal driving ( batterys last longer if the car is used every day )
Anyway i hope i have been of some help to you.
