Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera ?

Camara won't come on


\015 My camara was working fine. Someone left it on and the battery ran down. I recharged the battery but the camara will not come on. Could it be the battary?\015

Answers :

I have the same problem that just occurred with a SD400. Tried the battery in my newer SD1000 and it's not the battery. Noticed that there is a tiny tab that prevents the camera from coming on if the battery cover is open. Check that little black tab to make sure it didn't get broken off or damaged, otherwise it might be fooling the camera into thinking the cover is still open. That didn't solve my problem, but it's worth ruling out.
It could be the batteries. \015\012To be sure about it, try your batteries in another appropriate appliance.\015\012Good luck!
