Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera ?

I dropped my camera on the beach right as a shallow wave was coming in. In my fumbling to recover the camera I turned it on. The lens extended and remained that way. I took the plastic camera cover off, rinsed all parts (with purified water) that I could. I air and low heat blew dry the camera over several day, and re-assembled it. When I insert batteries I get a power light, but get no lcd screen, no sound of pictures taken on full compression of picture button, no further extension or ret

Sorry, I'm afraid that I also think it's a lost cause. Usually repairing a water-damaged camera is more expensive than buying a new one.
Water + Camera usually spells the end for the camera. If the LCD screen has water in it you could try disassembling it and putting it in rice for a bit. or kitty litter. These are weird tips i've heard of to remove moisture. And i guess its worth a try since it is already broken right?\015\012

Hi. I have a Canon G9 camera. I bought in October 8, 2007 but did not register the camera's warranty until a few days ago. Here's the problem. I dropped the camera a weeks ago... Everything was working fine, no problems. After I bought an extra battery I tried turning the camera on but would not power up. In fact will only power on if I insert and remove the battery several times. Once I get it going, however, it powers off with the lens extended. Please tell me what my options are, s

Dropped camera i dropped my camera and when i turn it on the screen looks cracked and it white! it looks broken on the inside. I have a polaroid i830. One day i dropped it on the floor, and it doesn't work now. If i push the power button on, the power light comes on, but the screen and everything stays off. I also can't get the light to turn off unless I take out the batteries. The screen appears to have a crack. Is there any way to fix it before spending to get a new one ??

Ist issue: how do you get the battery out? I have been using a nail file to pry it out. 2nd issue: the charger blinks green and orange whether battery is inserted or not. Battery does not seem to charge. 3rd issue: I have camera plugged in by USB. The green power light comes on but that's it. The LCD screen doesn't light up, no other buttons seem to work. Where does my issue lie? Is it the battery, the charger or the camera?


1st- you shouldn't have to do this. Stop filing your nails and you will be able to pry the battery out with a fingernail.2cnd- I can't decide whether this is a bad battery or a fault with the charger. Either way, the battery won't charge, ... Polaroid T737 Digital Camera

My lightly used nikon coolpix s570 has developed a power issue. Meaning that with a fully charged battery, the camera won't turn on. sometimes removing and reinserting the battery will get it to turn on. and sometimes the camera will power up normally, the problem is intermittent. any ideas? I keep the camera clean and store it in a dry place.


If you have a second battery, fully charge it and try it. If you do not have a second battery, it make either be a defective battery or a battery that is not properly charging. Try powering on the camera until you get it powered up, either by reinser ... Nikon COOLPIX S570 Digital Camera

I cannot get my casio exilim 7.2 pixel camera to power up I have tried charging the battery, but the red light shows for a minute then it goes off When i insert the battery in the camera, it powers up for a few seconds, makes an intermittent buzzing noise then turns off.The camera is about 18 months old


If the light blinks while charging then it means that you have a faulty battery and it needs to be replaced. Usually they only last if you're lucky 12 months so I would suggest replacement of the battery and that should solve your problem. :) ... Digital Cameras

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera, indicating low battery power, hence the purchase of a power adapter. When using both power adapter and batteries, the red light on the front of the camera is illuminated. The green light on the back of the camera is blinking.

I am trying to to charge panasonic lumix dmc-zs5 camera battery with it. As soon as I plugged it in showed a red light (power) on the charger.

I have an olympus 'mju' 700 camera which uses li-ion 42b battery and a li-40c charger. Whenever i charge my batteries, the charging light would start flashing (which is not the sign of charging because the light should be still) and when this happens, the battery would not charge. The only way i could make my battery charge was to slot the battery in the charger whilst the power is on (usually, i slot the battery in then turn on the power). But i was using my batteries on a day out, 2 days aft

I haden't used it in a couple of days (had never had a problem with it before), and now, the only sign of life when pressing the ON/OFF button is the small green light underneeth turns on but nothing else powers up or happens.

In May we purchased a Canon Power Shot 590IS. We love the camera, however, battery life with camera is poor at best. With new high energy digital batteries we get approxiamtely 40 - 45 pictures, with 4 differnt manufactures rechargable batteries, we get 12 - 15 pictures, before the batteries require replacement. The camera was retruned to Best Buys where we purchased it aong with an extended warranty. They keep the camera for 10 days, retruned it saying nothing was wrong. Any suggestions?

Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin

Battery charger Hi all - dumb question maybe...I just purchased a second-hand Coolpix 5400 from a camera shop, with accessories but without the original box or power cord for the MH-53 battery charger.

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.


I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them. If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons toget ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens
