Canon Powershot S410: cannot turn it on

\015 I downloaded my pictures to my computer before I left for my vacation. Everything was fine. The first day on my vacation, I wanted to take a picture but could not turn the camera on and when I finally turned it on, it said memory card error. I thought the battery might be low. I recharged the battery and used it to take a few pictures the next day, then I could not turn the camera on again. I though the battery might be bad. I bought a new battery charged it and turned it on and downloaded the pictures to my computer. Now I could not turn the camera on.When I finally turned it on, the lense does not come out and nothing come up on the LED. The second time I turned it on, it said memory card error. Now I cannot even turn the camero on. \015\012\015\012Can you help me or point me to some direction?\015\012\015\012Thanks.\015

Answers :

Personally, I would ring Canon and ask for some idea of what might be the problem, and go from there. I assume it is out of guarantee, otherwise I would certainly have it back to them under guarantee. However, it can cost more than a new one to get repaired in some cases if out of guarantee. It could be as simple as needing some contacts cleaning of grease in the battery housing - try cleaning this first is one of the most obvious.

Hi there, I have a Canon Powershot S3IS and just lately when you try to turn it on it comes up with a message that says E24. I have looked through the manual and cannot find anything resembling this message. It turns on for a few seconds and then the screen goes black and displays the E24 message. I was taking photos during a recent wedding I attended and then it cut out suddenly and displayed the E24 and since then will not turn on. Please help me as my brother and his family are arriving soon

My Canon PowerShot SD850 IS has a lens that is stuck in the extended position. I get a screen that says lens error, restart camera, but when I try to connect to the software, I get a screen on the computer telling me the computer cannot detect the camera. Battery is freshly charged, and I get the little yellow bird picture on the camera when I turn it on. It beeps about 4 times, and then turns off. Is there a safe way to get the lens to retract?

Don't play around with that lens, you can do more damage to the camera and focus with some of the stuff people tell you to try. Your camera just needs to be serviced and you'll be working great again. The shop that specializes in service for the powe ... Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off.
