My camera shuts off as soon as I turn it on

I have had the camera for 2 years, the camera shuts off as soon as I turn it on. I called Sony and they told me how to reset the camera, but it only worked long enough to take 3 pictures. Can someone tell me what I need to do.

Reset again. Make sure all the battery contact are clean - use a pencil eraser for the contacts in bottom of the chamber. Other than that the camera will have to be replaced- there are usually no economic repair options- though Sony may do an fair priced swapout you could at least try,.

Camera turns on, then right back off


I ended up calling Pentax Customer Service, who told me that this indicates an internal problem with the camera. So, I sent it to Pentax to get it fixed. I'm told turn-around time is usually 2-3 weeks, and that I'll be called with a cost estimate before repairs are made. My fingers are crossed!

Please try Power Resetting the Camera.
To Power Reset the Camera, First, please turn OFF the Camera.
Then, remove the battery pack from the Camera.
Then, press and hold the POWER button on the Camera for 30 seconds.
Then, reinsert the battery pack and check whether the issue is resolved.

Powershot A540 flash does not work


Hi. I had the same problem. I called Canon and they told me to reset the camera, and it worked. The camera is back to normal. To reset, hit the "menu" button and then scroll over to the tab with the tools icon. Scroll down until you see "Reset All". Hit "set" then highlight OK and hit "set" again. It will say "busy" if it was reset correctly. I had to do it twice for it to work, but it seems to be working fine now. Hope that helps.

Regular alkaline batteries (even new ones) often have trouble powering digital cameras which require a fairly high and sustained level of power output. Lithium ion batteries and NiMH rechargable batteries (maH > 2500) are better suited in this kind of device. Make sure you have the correct battery type selected in the Setup menu.

Access and turn on again the camera


I called Sony at 800-222-7669 and was told to turn camera off, remove battery, turn camera on holding the power button for one full minute, put battery back in and power up as usual. Probably the one minute drains the residual energy in a capacitor.

I passed the info to my wife but she had solved the problem by tapping on the front to release a bind on the lens coming out. Probably caused by handling during her trip to California. So I don't know if the one-minute thing works but it is certainly worth a try.

Hope this helps you!

I was cleaning my CCD and damaged the shutter. Same problem. Click to take a picture and the camera locks up and powers off. Turn the camera back on and the shutter releases and the camera resets and powers on. $281 service call later and Precision fixed it quickly. Replaced the shutter. They warranty their work for 6 months. Priced way too high, but nobody would touch it. As soon as I told other repair services how I messed it up, they turned me down. I had to much money invested in the camera to toss it in the closet.
