Hi. our EOS 20D has stopped working. Thought it was the battery but both are charged. The camera is basically dead and wont switch on. It stopped a few days ago and worked on and off for a few days and now is not working at all. Have removed and checked batteries and memory card. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Put a new fully charged battery in - the camera would lasted for a couple of minutes and then would not switch on. The battery works fine in an identical camera. Put in a second battery - that worked for a bit then started flashing battery problem and wouldn't switch on. 5 minutes later - it did switch on - lasted for a short time and then started flashing ERR 99, and then wouldn't switch on again. Battery works fine in an identical camera. 10 minutes later - started working again, but the Sigma
It is due to some kind of electrical contact failure. For more \015\012details and common causes of Err 99 read the following article:http://www.lensrentals.com/news/2008.12.31/canon-err99 ... Canon Digital Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera with EF-S 17-85mm IS Lens
Camera jam Ricoh Caplio R5 - tried to switch it on to take a picture, and lens came out part way but the camera then switched off. Flat battery perhaps, so charged battery overnight and tried again with similar results. Lens still part way out, maybe some whirring noises, screen flashes but then camera switches off. Any ideas? Dead battery / broken charger? - or problem with camera? And how to check (I only have the one battery)
All the R series Ricohs have a pretty complicated lens system employing 2 swing-out lenses which can get stuck pretty easily, or worse, broken. If you are very good at taking things to bits you might have a go at fixing it (I've done several that wer ... Ricoh Caplio R5 Digital Camera

My S9600 was left unused [batteries left in camera] for several months. Now it will work fine with the mains adaptor, but is completely dead when on battery power. Have tried new batteries [rechargeable and 'ordinary'] - camera dead; have left on mains power for a few minutes, then switched to batteries, same result. Grateful for any suggestions...
Sounds like corrosion on the battery contacts. I have seen battery contacts with a thin, transparent coating that came from leaking rechargeable batteries- doesn't look like the usual green crud, but it stops electricity from getting through. Try giv ... Fuji Finepix S9600 Digital Camera

When i put fresh AA bateries in my fuji finpix s700 the back screen starts to boot up, but then the battery light starts to blink and it tells me there is no battery power...then it shuts down. the silver metal battery contacts on both sides look a tiny bit corroded. I already tried to "scuff up" the contacts, but still no good. any advice?
Bad contacts and bad solder joints drain batteries fast.\015\012If your battery terminals are corroded they need to be cleaned. If moisture has corroded them then the chances are some solder joints inside the camera have been corroded too. re-s ... Fuji FinePix S700 Digital Camera

Sounds like there may have been some water damage to the internal parts. If you can, see if the is an adapter available to use with it. This may bypass an affected area and power it up that way. Hope this helps. :) ... Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS / Digital IXUS 95 IS Digital Camera
