If the rest of the camera functions work fine then this sounds like an internal problem to do with the electronics. if the camera is still under warranty then a trip back to Canon might be in order.

SOURCE: Camera will not power on.

Hi
There are several things that could cause this. 

1- Check the battery door indicator switch under the battery door and beside the memory card slot. Is the little black switch damaged or missing? Try pressing down gently using a pen it with the door open and then press the power button. Does it turn on?

2- The fuse has blown and needs to be replaced. Offhand I don't recall where it is on the SD750 PCB or how hard it is to solder on a new one (depends on if its tricky to get at or not). Good thing is fuses are really cheap.

3- Other power problem with the PCB due to corrosion or impact damage. The PCB or 'motherboard' of the camera will need to be replaced.

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Camera will not switch on in operate mode.

Can you test the voltage of the charged batteries, often they will not hold full charge for several reasons, age, factory imperfection, over use, haven't been allowed to discharge fully before recharge, dirty battery contacts, if you can, try new non rechargeable batteries, often cameras get temperamental about batteries after some time, use a metal tarnish cleaner with a cue tip, on the contacts, or pure alcohol, if bad, use plastic scourer, cold batteries don't work well, warm them in your hands if cold.

Hi there,try opening up your remote and cleaning the board with some contact cleaner. Sometimes there is a build up of dust and dirt that interferes with the pad contact.Worth a shot. Good luck.

The display on my L675 S7048 is flickering badly. My whites turn pink, and my blues turn green. I see it when windows starts, even the Microsoft logo has tiny green dots all around it. When I connect an...

WHITE is a mixture of the three "primary" colours.
If one of the colours is not working, then WHITE turns PINK.

So, either your LCD display is malfunctioning,
or the "data" cable between the LCD and the motherboard is malfunctioning (not transmitting all 3 signals),
or the video-card embedded into the motherboard is malfunctioning (not sending all 3 signals).

This is nothing that you can fix by yourself; take your computer to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting and repair.

Periodically the screen is captured by horizontal lines completely across the screen. Cannot access programs or even shut down properly. Any suggestions. Presario 700 laptop using Windows Vista. Thanks

This issue is due to the malfunctioning of the screen or due to any other internal hardware malfunctioning of the notebook.

To further isolate the issue, I request you to connect the external monitor and check.

Once after connecting the external monitor, please tsp Fn+F3 Switch between the display and external monitor in the following order:

Display
External monitor
Display and external monitor

If the external display is fine then the issue either could be due the malfunctioning of the display cable connector between the screen of the notebook and motherboard or due to the malfunctioning of the screen.

As this the hardware issue, Please contact the nearest repair center to get it resolved.

Camera will not turn on and battery indicator displays battery is fully charged. Canon Powershot G6

You need to clean the battery contacts with a Q-Tip dampened in rubbing alcohol inside the battery compartment. Also clean the battery itself and the charger. Thanks, Dana

Just bought a used d300 and it won't power up. It

Sometimes, checking the battery's voltage discharges it. Try not doing that once and see what happens. Also, it wouldn't hurt to clean the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Laptop malfunctioning

Connect any Desktop monitor to the Laptop and check whether the Display. if the display is fine on the Desktop monitor screen then it can be identified as the Laptop screen malfunctioning.
And if the Display has the same issue that on the Laptop screen
then it can be treated as the Display card issue.
However, it seems to be Harwre related issue. Get the laptop veriufied under Technical supervision to repair the Laptop's display card or the Laptop screen to be replaced if the display is fine on the Externally connectd Monitor.

Display on my monitor keeps flickering

This is most likely caused by small power fluctuations in the power board due to some capacitors that are failing. It is a common fault with LCD monitors and is easy to fix if you have some electronic knowledge.
If not, then I advise you to take it to your local TV tech and have them replace the caps.
They should not charge alot..it's a 15 minute job.

Hope that helps =)

The monitor would not turn on. Only the orange LED does.

1. Make sure the monitor cable is fully plugged into the computer. 2. If the new monitor works fine, The connection between the previous monitor and the PC was bad. Reconnect the original monitor to the PC and make sure that the connection is snug. Tighten down the video connectors until they are snug. Try again. good luck..
