Canon mv5i Previously working perfectly my MV5i will not power up/switch on when fitted with either a fully charged battery or external mains power. Sometimes when switching on the red power light flashes briefly but then goes out.

When I connect the battery charger to the camcorder it doesnt even even show that I have the battery charger hooked up nor does it charge the camera. Could that be a problem with the camera or the charger?

I got hold of Canon support. I had the same problem. Got a new battery, fully charged and would not run the unit. Canon told me to do a system reset. pull out main battery and aux battery (bottom of unit) and to power switch to aux for 90 seconds. the put batteries back and it should work. Hope this helps.

Canon 40D can not turn on

Same problem. Fully charged main battery. In my case, I hadn't used the camera in over 6 months. All I did was pull the main battery and then pulled the small CR 2016 button cell battery located inside the main battery compartment and re-inserted both batteries. The camera made a quiet click and then turned on with the main power switch and asked to reset the date and time. Works fine now. If this doesn't work just purchase a new button cell.

CANON FAULTY SCREEN IMPORTANT READ ME

Only for the brave, on a warrenty expired camera.

Buy a set of jeweller's screwdrivers.

Make sure it is off, with the lens retracted, and remove the battery and SD card.

Remove the 11 screws holding it together

The metal shell is in two halves that can be pulled apart. The rubber socket cover flap has to be removed once one half is off. A rubber gasket round the eypiece lens may drop off - it is easily replaced.

Hold the inner chassis by the edges.

The lcd screen is held by one screw, half hidden under the wiring to the flash - remove it.

Push the wiring to one side just sufficiently to enable you to hinge the lcd screen up on its flexible printed circuit wiring loom.

Underneath you will see the back of the ccd pod, with a flexibe printed circuit wiring loom pinioned under a metal plate with two Y shaped holes filled with brown gunk, and held down by a torex screw locked with some holt melt adhesive, and two further screws inaccessible under the metal chassis to the right.

I hypothesised these were the contacts that become detatched in hot conditions, and (1) tried to shift the flexible printed circuit minutely from side to side using the hole in it (it didn't move appreciably)and (2) pressed down quite hard in the centre of the metal plate, having supported the chassis from below so as not to damage the lens.

I reassembled the whole thing and it worked immediately, with just a faint light smear down the left hand side of the image (the whole image had been completely smeared, then dark, before) which was only noticeable when photographing in dark conditions.

So I took a gamble and it seems to have worked. If it hadn't I was going to break the glue seal on the Torex screw and unscrew and then screw it up again.

Obviously doing this is on your own responsibility.
