Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera ?

Power stitch My sony powershotSD70 IS has a problem with the power switch. It will turn off while in use, not turn off when button is pressed and will turn on after the switch is off .


Answers :

Here's someone else that had a similar problem. It ended up being a bad ribbon cable connection to its connector. If you're lucky, simply reseating some of the obvious ribbon cables into their connectors may help, in particular any ribbon cable leading from the power switch. Note that if you've never seen one, most ribbon cable connectors have little hinge points that you lift with your fingernail to unseat the cable:

Hello, I purchased a finepix s5700 about 18 months ago. It has worked perfectly until the last few weeks. I can turn the camera on if I hold the playback button and switch on the power, and can scroll through everything in the memory, but when I press the shutter to take a photo, the camera switches itself off. If I press the power by itself the green light comes on for a millisecond, then switches off. It has not been wet, dropped or otherwise. I had it on the shelf one day working fine, the ne

PHILIPS DTR4610/28 Watching terrestrial TV in Italy which has gone all digital needing decoder, I usually when switching off go through a ritual of pressing first the standby switch on the PHILIPS DTR4610/28 then pressing the power (off) button of the TV (R2 20LZ50) remote (which I use only for this and a bit for additional volume control). To switch on I go through the reverse routine. Maybe I did something in the wrong order last night, plus I pulled out aerial and mains of device and TV.

The power button is jammed or stuck, I have to use my fingernails or press harder in order to turn it on/off. However, it does not stay on or off, just that the button does not pop back up. I have tried using small sharp things like needles to hopefully pry it back into its original position but that did not work either. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

My Canon PowerShot SX10 IS is 2 years old. Now, when I use the zoom, it beeps continuously and turns off, but the power button glows as the camera is on. Then I need to switch off the power button and the restart to work on it. This happens, when I zoom faster.

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.


Well, are your batteries in the right slots, and put in right position? Are the batteries used? Was your camera exposed to water? These might be reasons why this is happening to you. If this isn't a very good solution, I have more details, want them? ... Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera

My Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 stopped working. I press the power button and nothing happens. I tried changing batteries, but it shows no sign of life. It was left in the trunk of my car overnight, inside a luggage bag. The temperature was close to freezing, so maybe the cold weather had something to do with the problem. I left it in my closet for about a week, and when I tried to use it, the power would not turn on. Thanks for your time.

Dear Experts: I got the 850SW over a year ago, I only used it less than 10 times around pool or water park. I never immersed the cemera in water though, I doubt it was really waterproof like they claimed. Three weeks ago, my friend borrowed it for snorkeling in Hawaii for a couple of minutes. then the camera couldn't be turned on: every time I pressed the power button, it kept on beeping a few times then went off. If I pre-set to picture review, the camera is normal, just when I change to shooti

When pressing the power button, the shutter opens, the lens comes out, the screen comes on for about 2 seconds. Then the screen turns off, the lens goes back in, but the shutter stays open.
