Customer Question
I can't get my camera...
I can't get my camera to turn on. It is a PowerShot SX700HS Wi-Fi. I purchased a new power cord for it , but i'm not sure if it was the right one. Is there some sort of lock I am missing or the power cord is not right. There are 2 different plug in ports on the side of the camera. Help

Hi there,

Is there any sign of life from the camera at all?

If not, then suspect a faulty battery.

Try fitting a replacement, fully charged battery.

You can get a replacement battery from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/STK-Battery-1600mAh-Powershot-Chargers/dp/B00449F6I4/

Let me know if that helps?
