Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD990 IS / Digital IXUS 980 IS Digital Camera ?

Received a new SD990 IS today. Charged battery, inserted and switched on. Blue Canon screen appears but no request to set date and time, and none of the buttons have any effect. After about 30 seconds it powers down again. Seems to me it must have been damaged in transit. Any advice about things to try would be welcome, but I guess I may just have to send it back. Alistair.

The camera will not turn on after being dropped. When I switch it from off to on, the green power LED flashes briefly. The lens does not move or attempt to extend. The LCD backlight does not illuminate. The LCD appears to be slightly damaged: there is some slight non-uniformity visible when I shine a strong light on it. Otherwise the camera shows no sign of damage. Is it possible that the damaged LCD is preventing the camera from turning on? Is there a hard reset procedure I should try? I've t

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 turns on sporadically. Once on it works fine. Shut it off and try to turn back on and it doesn't. Repeated pushing of the power button maybe 30-40 times and it turns back on again. Once you get it on it Works fine. Turn off and when you want to turn it on again must push power button over and over to get it on again. This happens with brand new batteries and with rechargeable batteries that have been fully charged. Any assistance would be appreciated. Doug Clark

No power after working sucessfully for a couple of years out of the blue the camera will not now turn on, I have tried various different batteries incase it was this but find it very strange that the camera should just die like this when it has not been dropped or damaged etc. I keep being told by people that it will probably cost more to replace the camera than to have it fixed, I find this hard to believe as it wasnt a cheap camera in the first place. can anyone please help

No pwer I am a high school photography teacher who inherited 20 Canon PowerShot S1 IS cameras (going on three years old).

They won't even power up when hooked up to the computer for downloading. i even changed the date/time battery just to see but didn't work. Any ideas?
