Well, I was at Jekyll Island and my video camera warned me about a low battery, 5 seconds later, it turned off. So I got home, I got new batteries (today not even 1hr ago) and I tried to turn it on. I opened the display screen and it wouldn't turned on. So I pressed the video light/power button, still, the camera has not turned on. Help please?

<p>I have noticed that, some users asked that, there old cameras always display low power warning for full charged new batteries, or there will be a low power warning after only taking 5-6 pictures.<br />
<p>If you have met this question (I wish not), I'd like to share the solutions.<br />
<p>The this problem are so common for <a href="http://www.digital-camera-batteries.net/canon.htm">Canon PowerShot</a> A series cameras when you try to powered your camera by Ni-MH batteries. This is because that, the camera judge the battery is power off by voltage of the battery. And if you use Ni-MH batteries for your camera, the Ni-MH batteries' voltage is lower than the Li-ion ones and close to the camera's judge voltage of low power, so the camera will warn you to change a new battery.<br />
<p>So if you use <a href="http://www.digital-camera-batteries.net">Li-ion camera batteries</a> this questions will be solved simply.<br />

if the camera wont turn on remove the memory card and make sure your pictures are transfered. Try using regular disposable batteries. Also when trying to turn it on try holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If it still doesnt turn on coud be a broken switch connection.
try replacing the battery. Check best buy, radioshack or other camera dealers for a battery. Possible deadcell battery. These lith-ion batteries die with no warning. If there is no change, the camera is defective!! hopefully htis helps
i have the same problem. i bought new rechargeable batteries and they went dead really fast and then i put some new batteries in and i took like 5 pics and then the battery indicator said the battery is low. i dont get it whats going on with this camera.
i dismantled the camera, unpluged all ribbons (flex connecters) and cleaned all connect points with a pink pearl eraser. re-assembled and it worked like new again. [email protected].
(i mean what the hell else are you going to do with your time when you are snowed in on northern vancouver island?)
It's something with the camera. I have the same camera and the same problem. I bought 2 brand new batteries, charged them, and the very first thing the camera did when I installed the new batteries was tell me that they were dead!! Grrr....
As a workaround, when it tells you the battery is dead, just open the battery door, close it, and try again. Repeat if necessary. With my camera, doing this lets me use the same battery for days and days. The battery is NOT dead - it's just a faulty warning message.
Just set the proper battery type by:
- Pressing MENU/OK button - Scroll to the right until you are in SETUP 2 - Keep on scrolling down and look for battery type - Press the right button to pick up on 2 options like Alkaline and Ni-MH - Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved - Keep pressing MENU/OK to get out of the MENU
Once, it's done, camera needs to be turned off for a few seconds so that settings made will be refreshed with the camera.
As you turn camera on, you're now ready to take many pictures.
ALKALINE (Non-rechargeable) batteries when set to the correct battery type will really take a maximum of 100 pictures.
It really doesn't matter if you'll be using 2500mAh. So long as those are the recommended batteries, those will work.
