Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?
My Canon SD600 will not turn on (battery is fully charged)
\015 The camera will not turn on. Itis dead - no sounds. Nothing happens. I have checked the batter - it is fullycharged. I have also used another fully charged battery with no success.\015
- Have a look at the battery door switch under the battery door but beside the memory card slot. You will see a small black switch. Is it damaged or even missing? If its missing that could very well be the problem. Or, if its there, try pressing it down carefully using a pen while the door is open, and at the same time press the power button. Does it work? If so, it's the switch causing the fault. \015\012
- If that doesn't seem to be it, it is possible the internal fuse needs replacing. A good camera shop should be able to do this for you inexpensively. \015\012
- Finally, it could be a faulty motherboard. Solders and tracks can break/microcrack overtime. Best bet in this case would be to have it checked out by a good repair store. If they will charge too much, it's probably worth buying a new camera instead.

My Canon Powershot SD450 won't turn on. I haven't used it in a while but the battery is charged and nothing that I know has happened to it. Help. My Canon PowerShot SD 750 won't turn on anymore. Battery is fully charged, was using it this morning until the memory card was full. Took it home, downloaded the pics to the PC, disconnected from the PC and received a 'Battery Pack' message. So, I charged the battery and now nothing. Is it just broke?

I'm trying to charge my Canon battery for my Rebel XTI camera. I have a Canon Battery Charger for LC E5. The Battery pack is LP-E5. The battery fits into the charger and a red light comes on. It doesn't flash. It remains constant. I've had it in the charger for 4 hours, and it doesn't turn green. Is the battery fully charged if there's a constant red light and no green light? Thank you.
Yes. There should be a constant green light when it is completely charged.What does the battery status show when plugged to the camera? If it show full then then there is problem with the charger not the battery.ThanksKindly r ... Digital Cameras

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co

I have a Canon Rebel EOS that I am having trouble power wise with. I can have a fully charged battery in, the power off option off but it still turns off sometimes before I even take a picture. I rarely can take more than one or two shots before it goes blank on the screen. I have cleaned the battery terminals and keep a charged battery in so what else could it be.

Canon Powershot A470 - asks to 'change battery' every time it is turned on, then turns off immediately. This is so even when new, fully charged batteries (different brands, rechargeable, non-rechargeable) are inserted. Any ideas on how to remedy this?
At maximum, NimH rechargeable batteries reach 1.2volts, instead of the full 1.5-1.6volts of a standard battery. I recommend using Lithium batteries, vs. std or Alkaline batteries, as the Li batteries seem to hold a charge longer. \015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera

Troubleshooting problems I have a canon powershot s60. I tried to take a picture earlier and the screen is completely white. The camera turns on, the battery is fully charged and there is nothing wrong with the digital card. THe camera wasn't dropped nor did it get wet.

Take a picture with the camera and download it. If the pictures also shows up white then this probably is a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's w ... Canon PowerShot S60 Digital Camera

I can't seem to get it to turn on now despite trying everything I know and reading the manual. Any ideas for me. Is it possible that all three batteries are too old yet appearing to char
