Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?
Our cannon powershot g9 camera is 1 year old. It will not turn on
\015 Our cannon powershot g9 camera is 1 year old. It was working fine and went to take some more photos and now it will not turn on. We recharged the battery pack, with not results. Next we bought a new battery pack and after charging it, it did not bring results. What could the problem be? We do not use this camera that often, and are very upset that after researching cameras and paying a very hefty price for this one and now after this short time it does not work. Suggestions please???Thank you\015

My camera is less than a year old but has recently been giving problems with the battery connection - I believe. The battery shows full and the camera works perfectly, then with no indication why the camera will not turn on. When left and then turned on later it sometimes works again, without the battery being charged in the meantime and with it again showing full. As I am going on holiday in 2 weeks I have not time to send it back to cannon under guarantee. Can you suggest anything I can check?

No pwer I am a high school photography teacher who inherited 20 Canon PowerShot S1 IS cameras (going on three years old). I noticed a few last year that didn't turn on even when brand new fresh batteries were put in. The battery chambers are clean with no apparent damage. I am now up to 8 cameras with this problem. They won't even power up when hooked up to the computer for downloading. i even changed the date/time battery just to see but didn't work. Any ideas?
Well with a clutch of cameras showing the same fault - together with other queries of a similar nature I suggest you contact Canon on an\015\012Educational level- for a bulk replacement deal.\015\012There are obviously showing a common manufacturin ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.
Ditch it- They will want $100 just to tell you to get a new one. ... Canon Digital Cameras
I have a one year old Canon Powershot, SD1100 IS. The battery appears fully charged in the charger, however, the camera will not turn on and the lens will not tract into the camera.
If you've ever let the battery fully discharge from non-use for an extended period of time, it will not come back. However, if that is not the case, then maybe this will help.\015\012 ... Digital Cameras
I have a powershot s400 canon camera, I just charged the battery and when I turned it on to take a picture the screen was all distorted. This happened before and then just fixed itself. This time it was longer. the camera is only about 2 years old.
Hi.The distorted and blurred picture and often in false colors is probably caused by a defective CCD sensor. The CCD sensor is the light sensitive chip that captures the picture. This is located inside the camera body, right behind the le ... Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera

My 9-year-old son ''cleaned'' the Canon powershot a590 in the sink. Now, when I turn it on, I get a white screen. The camera clicks, but no picture appears on the screen or aon the card.
Not much you can really do here, consider the camera unservicable.Only thing, is make sure the camera is completely dry, you will need to open it up and use a hair dryer to remove any remaining water. ... Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera
My Canon PowerShot SX10 IS is 2 years old. Now, when I use the zoom, it beeps continuously and turns off, but the power button glows as the camera is on. Then I need to switch off the power button and the restart to work on it. This happens, when I zoom faster.
I had a similar problem. I took it to a camera repair shop and got an estimate of $45 for repair. The shop repaired the camera for the estimated price. I was told that the camera had needed cleaning. I am satisfied with the repair and the price.I ... Canon PowerShot SX10 IS Digital Camera

Canon PowerShot A75 digital cmera suddenly went dead so I can no longer take pictures. Colors flash across the screen instead of the normal clear screen. It turns on and I can pick up the old pictures. It worked one day and then the next was gone. I love the camera and have had it for just over one year. If it costs too much to repair I won't bother, but what do I do and where do I go?

Can't see pictures on display screen after picture is taken. Also can't see pitures after hooked up to the computer. The model is powershot A85. #8822135874 The viewer screen is blurry and photos have been coming out blurry also. I tried turning it on and off several times, and this seems to have worked- for the time being. It has been working- on and off for the last few weeks. Not sure if this is a permanent solution.

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem?

No solution here. If you want a quality Nikon, you need to spend thousands for their professional DSLRs. Take care of your Canon and you should be very happy with it. ... Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera
Hi, I own a Sony Cybershot camera, and it has been giving a few problems as of this week. The lens keep re-adjusting in and out when I turn the camera on to take pictures. It however responds just fine when in picture-view mode. There is a screen prompt that says 'Access' when the camera is turned on, as well as the message 'turn off camera and start again'. I do not think that the camera had fallen at any time, and it is just under a year old. Thanks a lot for your response, Sarah.

Went into the water, about 5 feet and after that the camera wouldn't turn on. I have Stylus 1030 SW. I have had the camera for about a year. It was working fine in the water, and I would rinse it in fresh water, like they said, but this time I came out of the ocean and it turned off and stayed off. Do I need a new battery? This battery costs $39. in retail store! My battery is a year old! Please e-mail:Thanks-June

The camera is 2 years old, when turning on the power it goes to the date set,you can change the year, then it slides over to the month, but seems froze up, then the camera resets itself, if you skip the date set up, it shows a view on the lcd, but can't take a picture, and the camera resets again. My son borrowed it and took pictures snorkeling, so it may have gotten wet, but the lcd screen is not distorted as it was a year ago when I got water in it.

I have a samsung L200 digital camera. It was working fine until my 2 year old little girl decided she needed to play with it. Not sure if she done something or not but now the camera will not work. When I try to turn it on the power button lights up but that is all that happens. The screen does not come on or anything else. Also the lens seems to be stuck and will not go back in. And I also just noticed that the power button will only turn the camera on but will not turn it off. I was trying to

Camera shutdown I've had my Canon Powershot A85 for around 2 years. Around a few dats ago, I was showing friends pictures from a holiday to America, when it appeared the batteries had run out, but the lens never retracted, which it usually would do. I attempted to turn the camera on again, and it turned on for a split second, but i never thought to look at the screen for an error mesage, but it just turned off again. Nothing was spilled on the camera, and it wasn't dropped, or any other
Sounds like the fuse went bad in the camera, If you have no power on camera most likely thats what happened, This has to be fixed by repair tec, they have to touble shoot power board. ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

Digital camera I have a digital camera (Pentax Optio A10) and just recently the camera stop working. Every time I turn on the power button, the lens zoom out and a few seconds later the camera will turn off, and the lens will come back in.
