Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera ?

The low battery warning light flashes even when the batteries are fully charged. We tried several different batteries and it still does it. The camera will stay on for 15 minutes and then it will shut off

Answers :

Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info:\015\012

Camera dying? It will powerup like normal. But when a CF card (tried different ones)is in the camera and you press the button to take a photo, the screen will either shut off clean or give a flash of scrambled image then shut off and freeze. The only way to reset is to remove the batteries. It is also draining the batteries in the few attempts to power it on. When no card is in there it will stay 'alive' for a bit longer but pressing any button on it and the lense will power down leaving

I bought new batteries from local store (one from Walmart and one from Meijer) but both would not work in my Cybershot DSC-H55.

My camera fell down in the water. I didn't put it on until such time that arrived home. My husband opened it and removed the sand from the sides of the camera. It was just basically cleaned. However, everytime I would use it, it will only last for a few minutes then it would say "Battery empty". I've tried different cables already to charge it and even the universal charger but still it won't. No word that would say charging will come out. I am not also sure if its the battery or the camera that

I have a Sony DSLR-300. I lost the separate battery charger and bought an AC adapter that plugs directly into the camera. When I plug it into the adapter a red light comes on for 1 second then shuts off. The camera turns on while plugged in but won't stay on when I unplug it after I've had it on charge for 30 minutes. Any suggestions? I'm not even sure if the battery charges through plugging it in directly to the outlet rather than a separate battery charger?

When I hit the record button my camera shuts down. The battery is fully charged, there's plenty of memory. It'll stay on while I watch a movie, but when I hit record the screen goes blank and shuts off completely. I attempted to press the reset button, plugged my camera in and tried it then, and still have the problem. The camera is only a year old... :( Thanks for any help, Kim

Check and clean the battery contacts as this is sometimes the fault when the camera draws more power and due to dirty or poor contacts on the battery or the camera contacts the camera shuts down due to low power. Hope that works. ... Digital Cameras

My Nikon CoolPix 5700 seems confused about OFF and ON, and now I can't take a photo becase it won't stay ON long enough for me to press the shutter release. The problem appears a bit like a low-battery issue, but I have been placing totally recharged batteries (as fas as I can tell) in it (two different ones) over and over, and still the camera turns on and off at will. Any ideas? Is there a way to totally reboot the camera, like one reboots hard drives? Thank you.

I've replaced the battery door using the solution on this site, but still have a problem. The battery door does not slide all the way into the slot and will not stay shut when batteries are present. there is a 1/16th inch gap between the door and the camera body. The original door was sitting the same way and think that is what caused the clip on the door to break off. Any suggestions?

Is there a way to "restart" my Casio Exilim EX-Z700? While I was taking a picture it seemed to freeze while it was trying to display the picture I just took - then, with the lens still popped out the screen stayed blank and it turned off, and now it won't turn on. The lens is still stuck in the "out" position. No buttons work. I tried to put it in the cradle to charge, and tried a different battery as well. Nothing works. Camera is dead!

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.

These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras
