I have this problem, I lost my AC adapter and I tried to charge the battery using a multi ac adapter, I used 4.5 volts but when I checked the adapter It was 15 v instead of the 4.5, so I inserted 15 volts in my camera and now it doesn´t work, did I burn my camera? does anybody know ow can I make it work again.
PS Sorry about my english, I´m not from USA, thanks for your help

Did you charge the battery on the BC-45C charger? hat should be the best way to charge your battery. It should be fully charged within 2 hours. To make sure your battery still has its capacity you can measure the output voltage. On the battery is printed 3,7 Volt. With a multi meter you should measure at least 3,9 Volt, because the multi meter does not ask any significant current. if it is under the 3,7 volt you can be sure the battery does not have enough capacity to let your camera work correct. The charger will deliver abut 4,2 Volt.
see this causes and proceed . God bless you If the camera won't turn on, check the batteries, or connect the
camera to an AC adapter. If that doesn't work, remove all batteries,
disconnect the AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and
reconnect the adapter.
If the flash doesn't work, the camera won't take pictures, or the screen keeps turning off, check that the batteries are strong.
TIPS: 1.)NEVER PUSH THE LENS IN AFTER CAMERA DIES, BUY A NEW BATTERY IMMEDIATLY AND TURN IT BACK ON, CLOSING THE LENS!
2.)NEVER USE AN AC ADAPTER, USE A RECHARGEABLE BATTERY OR A REGULAR BATTERY!
..to fix this...
Do as i say..
1.) Remove battery 2.) Remove front plate (screw driver may be needed) 3.) Check all gears, make sure they are correctly fitted in place) 4.) Move the gear manually to make the lens come out. 5.) keep it out, put the front plate back together. 6.) reinsert the battery, turn it on.
or... 1.) Remove the battery. 2.) Wait about 6-8 hours. 3.) Reinsert the battery.
or... 1.) Remove the battery. 2.) Try hooking it up through AC adapter, put correct voltage. 3.) Try turning it on. 4.) Remove AC adapter, reinsert battery. 5.) Turn it on. If nothing happens just tell me..
Make sure the ac adaptor ius the right polarity for the camera, negative outside plug and positive centre,also make sure the voltage output of the charger is correct 5 volts dc.You do not need batteries as well as the charger.
This is actually a very good camera.Did you insert the batteries in reverse accidently?? this seems to be a problem with the switching circuit from battery and power adapter.. did you keep the camera with batteries for a long time with out use??
U can give it to the nearest service to get the circuit checked.
all the best my friend..
Ouch! You can't use an AC adapter with any battery-operated equipment you choose to just because the plug fits physically. The A70 requires 5-6 volts, and a Pavilion adapter typically puts out 18 volts. You most probably blew out your Canon's power supply within a few seconds, unless it's fused somehow.
