Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SX120 IS Digital Camera ?

Battery life is only about few days even if we dont use the camera,any idea how to fix the problem?



Answers :

The battery could be dying. Otherwise, resistance, in the form of oxidation or poosibly corrosion on battery terminals, will cause current drain, and decrease the life of the battery. Make sure the battery terminals, as well at the terminals inside the camera, are clean (use a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser to clean them.
\015\012Aside from that, the problem will require servicing. Get an estimate first, since the cost of repair can be high.
\015\012Good luck, and hope this helps.

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks


You didn't say what type of batteries you are using. Best are CR-V3 lithium which should give 500 shots. 2300 mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries should give 200 shots. Worst are alkalines which Olympus do not recommend. Have you checked the co ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Battery Life Battery Indicator shows Orange after taking 3-Videos or several images. Battery Indicator= Green good, Orange half battery life, Red nearly gone. I have replaced the Casio original batteries (2100mAh) with 2700mAh. Still the same battery life, Orange indicator after few Videos or several images. I have since purchased 2100mAh to suit the Casio charger and still the same problem. I used to get approx 150 shots. Is the camera discharging the batteries? Any Ideas?

I have a Olympus X-560WP & when I turned it on, the screen appears with a P in the left corner, a red flash symbol in the right corner & it says on the bottom +1.0 1/30 F3.7.

My Kodak Easyshare Z1275 has short battery life. sometimes even newly charged 2600 MaH batteries cause problems. Powers up, lens extends, opens screen to set time and date then powers down. Sometimes i can take a picture or two before it powers down. This is a known problem to Kodak but they want $90 to repair it. Can anyone tell me how to repair it myself. If I can't I will throw it away and use my Cannon exclusively.

E18 my canon powershot A150, got the whole E18 problem, it turns on with the blue canon screen, but then two seconds after it turns into a faded black with E18 in the bottom left hand corner. i seriously dont know whats wrong, and it hasnt even been a year since i got the camera, is there any way i can fix this problem? because at the moment buying a camera, my parents would not be too pleased :| it turns on with blue screen then it goes black and it says e18


E18 is the canon fault number for lens error. Is the lens stuck out? does it click when the camera is switched on? Try lightly tapping the lens on a hard surface. This sometimes resets the lens. If all this fails take it to bits! (but watch the flash ... Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

Camera information I traded for a largan chameleon, not knowing the value of the camera, and I have no instruction manuel or any connection to my computer.

I am using Canon EOS 5D. I was taking pictures of the sunset this evening, then the mirror inside the camera dropped out inside. I opened the camera and saw the little mirror (I don't know what it's called) was not in the position it's supposed to be. I guess the glue between it and the camera didn't work, so the mirror can stick to the camera. Please help me! What can I do now? I can't afford to fix it at this time, and I don't know if it's a serious problem.


Has the mirror actually fallen off from the frame or is it that it is misaligned? Both, by themselves, are not serious problems. You do not need to pay much for fixing it.

Auto focus My autofocus wont focus,  it used to when I first bought it, but now it seems to not want to focus.  The red flashing brackets in the eye piece dont focus and beep.  What do I  need to do to fix the problem?  I already checked to see if it needed cleaned but it seems spic and span.  Can anybody help me..PLEASE!


There should be a tiny little switch on the lens that shows 'AF' and 'MF'.  Make sure it is on 'AF' for auto-focus.  Also, is the lens rotating and locking fully? ... Nikon D50 Digital Camera

"whiteout" My exlim started to give what I'd describe as "whiteout" - ie pics just come out as if totally overexposed - when in the Himalayas trying to capture snow scenes. I resolved the problem by zooming in slightly for each pic, but this sol'n has now failed, and even at max zoom the pics are no good. I've run through the settings trying to ensure that all are reset to factory default - and have run out of ideas..... Seeing past correspondence about trying to get these fixed - esp near Cairn

Dark images canon powershot sx100 seems that every pic is dark even with flash and in various light conditions. It seems that the right side of the control dial (where the flash icon is) doesn't allow me to change the flash type as it used too. nothing happens, can't choose red-eye reduction or anything.

Lumix dmc-lz5 When i turn the camera on it lets me take 1 or 2 pics but then says turn cam off and then on. it will let me take 1 pic but then says it again. i read 1 solution to this prob which was to take it back to the shop, is there any other way of getting this problem fixed as i have had my camera for over a year but havnt really used it too much?? is getting it cleaned possibly an idea or do i need a new cam??? thanx sue


Cleaned is not the problem. Most of the time it is poor battery. Just becuase the battery says it is charged means nothing. These cameras take a great deal of power compared to other AA devices. ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 Digital Camera
