Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD770 IS / IXUS 85 Digital Camera ?

My child spilt soda in my purse and my canon powershot sd770 is digital elph was in it. I quikly dried it off and then powerd it up and it seemed fine, later that evening I powerd it up again and it wouldn't. So I charged the battery over night and still wouldn't power on. This camera is only about 6 months old. What do i do?


Answers :

Powering up a wet camera usually shorts out the circuits. Soda gets sticky as it dries and further complicates matters. Still later, the corrosive activity of the acid in the soda will eat its way through the circuits. I don't hold out much hope for your camera but if you want to take it in for repair and are willing to pay the expected high cost, go for it.

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co


I figured out the problem. My AA battery recharger was not making good contact, so although it said the batteries were recharged, this was not the case. After fixing this and getting full recharges, the problem went away. ... Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.

Power issue we bought my sony mvc-cd400 in 2002, so i understand that it is old and out of date. But up until a month ago it has been a great camera. I had the camera on the charger and noticed that when i unplugged it that it did not hold the charge, i returned it to the charger over night and it still had no charge. we replaced the battery the same issue, as long as the camera is plugged in to the charger i can use it. is this a fixable issue?

No Power on camera. Battery will not charge. Charger led flashes when tying to charge. Have another (older 2007) exact model camera and battery from this camera works fine within this camera.

It won't turn on even with a fully charged battery. What do I do? I've owned it for at least 5 years and have three batteries and a pentax charger that turns green when a battery is charged.

I can't seem to get it to turn on now despite trying everything I know and reading the manual. Any ideas for me. Is it possible that all three batteries are too old yet appearing to char

My GE A1035, which i've got about seven months ago always displays "battery exhausted" even though the battery was fully charged. I also bought new batteries to test if it was the cause but the problem was not solved. My coworker who also owned another camera borrowed the batteries from but to my surprise both batteries worked in his camera. I hope you could address this problem immediately. Thank you.

Fairly brand new (less than 6 months old) Canon rebel xti - shooting in manual mode, then it gives a low battery message. I switch the battery and nothing. I recharge the first battery and install it, again - nothing. I removed the internal battery and left both batteries out for 30 minutes. Nada. I have barely even used this camera and I am furious.

Two things....my approx.18 month old battery died and i bought a replacement yesterday. is this the normal life expectancy? 2nd. Today, with a totally charged battery, I took eight pictures. Later I wanted to review the pics and when I pushed the on/off button, the lens came out but no image appeared. I could not shut off the camera, so had to pop the battery out. I am not sure now if the lens went back in. I pushed the on button again and the lens moved out; the display lit up with the message

Battery drainage I have had my olympus sp-550 uz for approx 18 months, and was getting around 175 shots even when using zoom a lot. I am now getting only 20 - 30 shots using new batteries and also getting total drainage over night at times when my camera is turned off. I have been using the same make and type of batteries since I bought the camera.


20 to 30 shots on "fresh" batteries! Do you use the flash on all shots. That really drains them. I would try to set the camera to "factory default settings" in case you changed something that is causing a drain. I hope you just bought some bad batter ... Olympus SP-550 UZ Digital Camera

Camera Failure I was taking pictures of my daughter on the beach last week and my camera just quit. The lens is still out. This has happened before when the battery died, but I charged the battery and it still won't work. I am pretty positive that I have an extended warranty on the camera (though it is only a few months old) but I can't find my paper work. What do I need to do?

Camera will not "click" to take a picture. I had two old batteries which I charged -- no help. Then I bought a new battery on line -- still no good. I have noticed over past several months camera seems "reluctant" to take a picture -- might have to try a few times to get it to "snap."


There may be dirt or debris that collected under the button causing it not to work properly. Try using an electronics cleaner on the button. This will clean out any dirt and hopefully allow the camera to "snap" pictures better. Here is a link to e ... Digital Cameras
