    My camera is doing the same thing, but my problem started by my taking pictures in a ususal fashion and getting a 'Change the Batteries" message and the battery indicator indeed showed a low battery at the time...Ofcourse, i milked the batteries for all they were worth and it died on me...I purchased new batteries, Energizer Max...and the bottom green light just winked at me once and the camera did not power on. So, ofcouse I tried this 20 more times. I flipped the batteries, cleaned the terminals, anything I could think of, and chaulked it up to bum batteries (..never my camera!...). So, i slipped to the store and bought some Duracell fancy-smancy high performace batteries. Rushed home, slipped them in the camera...same thing. The camera winked that bottom green light - but, no power. What in the world? To think just days prior I was snapping pics left and right!! It wasn't dropped or mishandled! It happened right in my own hands...it started with a "Change the Batteries" message...something I've seen more times that I can guestimate! Can anyone help??

Its broke Baby Girl, its broke. As it is not new you will not get much joy from Canon - though you could look up their web site and tell the tale to Technical Support. I tell you this because if it is more than year old - nobody is going to mend it. But if its a model that had a problem- they might - just might swap it for another one. You can only ask. PS to get a nice reply-rewrite this story in normal type and grammar Never send messages in capitals -thats kinda like shoutin' and no one likes to be shouted at do they?

Argus bean 5mp digital camera wont work any more.


I had the same problem with my Argus Bean - not sure of the model #, but image is that same as shown. I found another, similar site that recommended holding the camera and striking it against the back of your other hand (face first). It worked on the first try. Something about the LCD coming loose.

I've had my camera for about 3 years now and have never had any problems until a couple of weeks ago. When I turned the camera on, it forced me to reset date/time and would occasionally show aperture 00...


Try getting new trusted brand batteries like duracell, And also if it forces you to change the D/T just change it. Also try getting a new memory card. (trusted brand). If none of this works then there might be a prob. Maybe someone dropped it. Try asking the company 2.

Hope this helps

My kodak c813 digital camera will not turn on


I bought this model several months ago and it was working great up until Christmas time.  For some reason it just stopped working.  I couldn't get it to turn on OR sometimes it would turn on after several attempts.  I kept changing the batteries and sometimes that would work, but it was more or less random successes.  I found this link on FixYa : http://wwwuk.kodak.com/global/en/service/batteries/batteryDigCamChart.jhtml?camera=C813
I was using generic batteries (Philips) which I bought in bulk from a discount tech store and these batteries were working in the camera since I bought it.  The batteries were new; just generic.  By coincidence I ended up buying KODAK branded alkaline batteries from the same store.  I replaced the older generic ones with the KODAK batteries and the camera came back to life!  I'll leave it off for a day and see if it turns on tomorrow.

Wont turn on but light is blinking


Are there any error messages on the LCD display?

Will the camera lens stay out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

If the camera will not turn on even with a fresh set of batteries it could have a system or lens error in the camera.

a possible lens jamb when closed and the green led on top comes on then shuts off after the lens attemps to extend but cant.

Canon 20D err 99 and shutter going off continuously


its not the battery

its the exposure of the shutter speed of the camera

it might need to be set manually. set it to 2.8 or 4.5 speed

i had the same problem when i bought my sigma 20mm-80mm lens.

the lens wasnt talking to the camera properly, it didnt know what it was aying about exposure speed rate.

put the camera in AV mode and set the speed rate.

the lens might be compatible with your camera even though it is a canon, or it could be defective

return and replace

I’m happy to help further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/david_92c86cbc79e9b552
