Camera wont turn on - Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera


Answers :

Couldn't find a firmware upgrade for my PowerShot A720. Tried putting a piece of rubber under the spring on the lid to make it tighter and it helped because I can take more pictures before I get the dead battery message (even thought they aren't dead). I bought the Duracell that you can check the charge on because I'm sure I've wasted dozens of batteries by now.
