I recently bought a SanDisk 4GB SDHC card for my DXG-572V. I put it in the camera, and I turned the power on. A screen comes up saying "Format Card?". I have tried selecting both "Yes" and "No", but each time I select either one, the camera powers off automatically. I just installed brand new batteries, also. How can I get past this screen?
Your problem is that you are trying to use an incompatible memory card. The DXG-572V is not SDHC compliant and will only work with regular SD cards. In theory it's compatible up to 4GB but in practice there are few standard SD devices whi ... DXG Technology DXG-572V Digital Camera

I also cannot get our A640 to power on, either with new batteries or with a power cord. We are a non-profit Boys & Girls Club and replacing it is really a last resort. We use it with our Card-ID system to generate membership cards with photos on them. Any suggestions? If I need to send it for professional repair, what do you suggest?
Things to check first are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Details on what needs to be checked ... Canon PowerShot A640 Digital Camera

I have a Canon Power Shot s400 and am having a problem formatting the CF card. I have three different CF cards that I have been using for some time and have formatted them before but they are now not staying formatted long enough to take any pictures. I have a new fully charged battery in the camera and the camera does not want to come on at times. Can you help me??

I turn on the A300 and it seems to power up normally, but now my LED Display is Black. All Icons are present though. New AA Batteries, Flash Card is new.

Canon A560 powers on, lens goes to full zoom won't retract, no buttons work, shutter doesn't work, everything locked up. I've changed the AA batteries, the CR1220 disc battery, and also put in a new card, still locked up.
Moisture probably got inside to lock-up the mechanical drive. Leave it in a dry environment for a few days then try again. If it doesn't work then it'll need repair in a shop. ... Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera

I have a Fuji Finepix F45 camera. After taking a photo the screen shows a badly blurred image. Same applies if I load the memory card into my PC. The image has wavy lines. I have tried recharging the l-ion battery. replacing the battery with a new charged battery, & replacing the XD card to no avail. I suspect that the charger may be defective. However the camera does show the battery as being fully charged. After spending £25 on a new battery I am reluctant to spend £30 on a new charger wh

I have a samsung digimax A402 camera. I have never had a problem with it powering on until now. I have placed brand new double A batteries and when I press the power button on the camera the screen tells me my battery is low and the camera powers off. I have tried different brands of batteries as well. What is the reason my camera will no longer turn on and stay on with new batteries installed?
My camera did exactly the same thing. I found that there was a minute trace of corrosion on one of the battery conections inside the body of the camera. After cleaning up the contacts to remove the corrosion the camera powered up without fault. It di ... Samsung Digimax A402 Digital Camera
