Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD30 / IXUS i Zoom Digital Camera ?

Canon digital ixus i7 zoom will not power on

\015 I have a canon digital ixus i7 zoom which will not power on. When the camera is placed in the recharging dock the charge light briefly flashes green before going out. In the dock it is possible to power the camera on and the screen displays "No Image". I have tried replacing the battery but this made no difference. Any advice please.\015

Answers :

Since it powers on from the dock, there's only one real possibility. The battery is not charging. Since you have already replaced it here is my diagnosis:
The battery charging pins are internally connected to an IC that powers the pins which in turn charge the battery. The purpose of the IC is to determine the amount of charge and stop the charging once the battery is full(to prevent over charging). I believe this IC has gone bad there by not charging it. Unfortunately this has to be fixed by canon. Why? Because they won't service the camera if you tamper with it. It applies both to cameras under warranty or out of warranty. Please contact canon authorized service center to get it fixed. You can verify the info I have provided by contacting the Canon tech support via e-mail.

Hello Andydix

The problem seems to lie either with your battery's or with the battery compartment of your camera.

As a diagnostic and probably the simplest solution , use one of those pencils with the eraser stuck on top to:

\015\012
    \015\012
  • Clean all battery contacts
  • \015\012
  • Clean the contacts inside the camera compartment if attainable.
Let me know if that works , and if not we can try some other steps.

Kind Regards
Stephan

I have a Digital IXUS 750 which until recently was able to download all images from the camera to my PC without a hitch. Immediately the USB link from camera to PC was made the Zoom Browser Ex fired up, the blue light illuminated on the camera and hitting the button and the images downloaded with no probs. Now despite uninstalling, reinstalling and applying canon's latest zoom browser update - nothing. Connecting the USB to Camera link and turning the camera on in the playback mode does nothing

Powers off my canon powershot sd600 digital camera keeps powering off after about 30 seconds. I have gotten a new battery and that didn't help.
