Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G5 Digital Camera ?

Camera won't turn on, battery voltage checks OK. This happened after I fixed the common LCD problem (connectors pulled out of screen from being over-rotated). Neglected to remove battery during repair, but didn't think this would have posed a problem. Thanx!

I receive the same "errr" message. The photo shop said it was a bad contact, they cleaned them with an eraser and made sure there was good contact. Problem was slightly better, but still exists. I have to remove the battery to clear the problem, turning it off and back on does no good. You can actually feel the lense move ever so slightly. Camera has gone back to Nikon for a repair. Very disappointed at this point with this. Camera store acknowledged that they have seen many of these.

Battery Problems CANON A80 Battery Problems Have had a CANON A80 for nearly three years. The first two years were great. The batteries would last for ages between charges, and with a new baby we took lots of photos. Then the batteries started playing up. Fully charged batteries would only last a few days, or if left would not power up at all. Have replaced the batteries, and the chargers with no improvement. Here in NZ there is a huge wait for repairs, so if it is beyond repair I?ll just re

My Kodak Easyshare Z1275 has short battery life. sometimes even newly charged 2600 MaH batteries cause problems. Powers up, lens extends, opens screen to set time and date then powers down. Sometimes i can take a picture or two before it powers down. This is a known problem to Kodak but they want $90 to repair it. Can anyone tell me how to repair it myself. If I can't I will throw it away and use my Cannon exclusively.

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

Each time I remove the battery from my Nikon CoolPix 4300, the clock returns to a default of 2002 (in the LCD window the date shows as 000000. Each time I use the camera I have to reset the clock and date. I left the battery in the camera over night to see if the clock battery would take a charge and maintain the date and time the next time I removed the battery. No such luck. It returns to default. Is this a problem I can correct on my own?

Every once in awhile, our D90 hangs up and won't autofocus and take pictures. An error message is displayed but can be rectified by removing and putting back in the battery. The battery display usually says it's O.K (at least half full). Is this a battery problem or battery connection problem?

Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking. I cannot then even get the camera to shut down eithout removing the battery or just leaving it until it times itself out. If i remove the battery, I still have to turn it on & then off again to get the lense to retract. Can you help to solve this problem. It does it no matter what the charge in the battery is like. Full or half used.

Charging Problem Charging appears complete after about 15 minutes. Normal charging time is 90 minutes. When the camera is turned on the oblong battery level indicator is filled white where previously it contained diagonal markings. The white disappears rapidly as the battery discharges within just a few minutes. Enough time to take a couple of picture. The camera then shuts down.

My canon 20d stopped taking photos for no aparant reason. Kept getting error 99 and when I re insert the battery it starts clicking on it's own whether turned on or not.

I removed battery pack from the camera. About two months later, I put it back, and when I turned on the camera, the LCD was completely blurred, with purple vertical streaks throughout the picture. I never had a problem when I've removed the battery. Old pictures appear fine, but now when I take a picture, it comes out almost completely distorted.

Even with fresh batteries installed, I only get a few shots before the "battery empty" icon appears. Then, if I remove and then re-insert the same batteries, the initial result is a green battery icon which may only give me one shot before the "battery empty" icon appears again. If I use only the viewfinder, I may get a couple more shots. It looks like an electrical problem but what should I do?
