Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My canon digital slr dosen't turn on how can I fix this? may be because friend put in a battery with a higher voltage then camera can take.


Answers :

If a higher voltage battery was installed then u have damaged/burned out the electronics of the camera, no matter what u are going to have to send it to a Canon repair center, there is no fix u can effect for this problem at home.
Hi,\015\012
\015\012
\015\012To be really honest, this is the biggest blunder of using a different battery than mentioned.It would have been caused a short circuit or might have affected the internal structure of the camera.\015\012
\015\012I am afraid there is no Quick Fix in this case. You need to get it repaired. If you want to play with it, it might cost you some bucks in case you might not able to fix it.If under warranty, call canon and get it rectified.\015\012
\015\012If not, look for a local tech. Do not try to open it yourself, as it might be a small fault which you might not catch and you might harm the circuit in the end trying to find that.\015\012
\015\012I hope this would be the precise solution.\015\012
\015\012Thanks.

I have a Olympus FE 190 Camera. After a couple of pictures the battery reads red and I can take the battery out and put it back in again and it reads green. I thought maybe I have a problem with the battery so I bought a generic battery for this camera charged it up and the camera doesn't turn on. So I bought an olympus battery, charged it up and put it in and the camera still doesn't work. the only battery that kind of works is the original battery the camera came with.

Hello, I have a EX-Z8 Exilim Casio camera. The last time the battery ran out I put it in the charger as normal. However instead of having a constant red light, the red light has a continuous flashing. This has no expanation in the handbook but it must be an error as when I take the battery out of the charger and put it into the camera again, the camera will still not switch on. I have not had this camera for long. And there is no other reason why it shouldn't be working. Many thanks, Michell


If the charge lamp flashes red it means the battery is faulty or the battery is loaded in the charger incorrectly. Take the battery out and check if the contacts are dirty - wipe them with a dry cloth and try charging again. If the error continues, y ... Digital Cameras

Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all. When I first did this, it would power on once and then when I went to take a picture it said the battery was too low. If I put new disposable batteries in camera it works. Camera is only 1 year old and barely used.

When I turn on my Nikon coolpix S210, it gives me a lens error prompt. I have read posts on another website and it said everything from hold the lens out by force to turn the lens slightly clockwise while it is out to rap it slightly a few times, to changing battery to taking the camera apart. Short of taking the camera apart, I have tried them all. Nothing works. I just put alot of money into the camera buying extra picture cards, batteries, etc. NOW IT WON'T WORK! And there doesn't s

I have Canon EOS 300D digital Rebel. I have had intermittent problem with the camera display screen going blank even though I put a freshly charged battery in. Usually I can take a couple pictures then the camera becomes non-responsive with a blank display screen; if I pull the battery out and re-insert it, the camera will take a few more pictures before the same things happens. Any suggestions?


Strange, intermittent problems with the EOS Digital Rebels can be caused by a defective shutter release switch. We charge about $85 to replace it. ... Canon Digital Cameras

Last year I bought my mom a digital camera for christmas. It worked great for about 2-3 months. Since then it is speratic, it will turn on let you take a couple of pictures then shuts down all by itsels. If you put freshly charged batteries in the camera it will let you take 4-5 pictures tells you low batteries then shuts down. Is there any way we can return the camera to the company and receive some credit to purchase a new one for my mom? The other question is could we get it fixed?

Flip Ultra camera - after turning on, the Flip icon shows up, but then freezes. It won't even shut off. We have to take the batteries out to turn it off. Called customer service 3 days ago. Was told to take the batteries out for 24-48 hours, then put them back in and it should work. We did this, but the camera is still frozen. I only bought the camera this past May (2008) I was taping and then when I turned my flip off, it froze up and now won't do anything.

My camera has been on a easyshare dock a very long time. One time when the dock was unplugged, I plugged it back in, and put the camera on it. It had a blinking red light, which is had never shown before. I upplugged the dock and replugged and put the camera back on.

My 'PowerShot A1100 IS' is not responding anymore when i put fresh AA batteries in. As soon as I turn on the camera, it says battery low, and will not take pictures. I did not have this problem with it previously. I have owned this camera for about 2 months and this has started happening approx a couple of weeks ago. Could this camera be defective?

Help!! My Sony DSC-W100 isn't working. I've been sifting through the message boards and none of the solutions were working for me. Some of my friends were fiddling with my camera and the camera got left with the lens out and no battery left. So I charged the battery and put the battery back in but now the lens is expanding and retracting four times while the camera reads "access" and then "turn the camera off and then on." I've been doing this repeatedly with no avail! Is there anyway to fix it

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it.
