Re: Help.... Bummed Out
Sometimes in some cases the shutter blades gets stick if left unused for few time. thus no image is formed. try switching it on and off few times, otherwise, the problem may be due to faulty CCD or inoperative mechanism of the shutter assembly. In both the cases you have to get it repaired from the repair shop.

This just happened to our DC100 Canon yesterday during my son's 3rd bday party. I went to put in a new disc and then all that happened. Did you ever find out what caused it or if it can be fixed? Thanks
You're using the wrong batteries. You need to purchase lithium batteries. They are quality batteries for high powered, battery operated electronics. Personally, I have a battery charger and use rechargable duracell batteries. (HR6/ DC1500/ NiMH/ 1,2V) Gives you approximately 16 hrs before having to recharge.
The charger what u have got is not rite... get a charger which goes rite wit the battery u have...and there is a problem with the lens of your camera.. that is the reason why u r not able to record anything.... thank u
Hey bray598, According to the manufacturer this camera comes with AA alkaline batteries so unless you bought defective batteries the ones you purchased should work fine. I would make sure the batteries are inserted properly, and make sure when you turn it on the battery cover and/or the memory card cover are closed. I hope this helps. Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead.

It sure looks like it did some damage.
At least you've got a work around. If the guy didn't say the battery would work in your camera, it's hard to see how he's at fault. It appears that he did live up to his end of the bargain. Perhaps you should have looked at the battery specs to see what it works with? Even if he's at fault, he probably would owe you only the current value of your camera rather than a new one.
