Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SX30 IS Digital Camera ?

My SX30 IS turn on automatically while inside the box then just "die" down. As a result, the lens stuck up and the camera won't power up. My solution is re-charge the battery and it turns okay. My question is, is it normal for this camera to power on automatically?



Answers :

Hiof course not. you have a problem camera. like the type of problem it could involve several circuit trouble shoot. First power control pcb (dc/dc convertor), on/off control switch fpc, and main pcb. I suggest you to send canonUSA or your local repair shop. ( That must be under warrenty, it is pretty new product) Both place would take time in those type of problem. CanonUSA 2 to 3 week usuallly, local 1 to many week depand on what they want to repair.
