    • First you need to remove the back cover of the camera, so that you can access the motherboard. Here is how it looks like with the backcover removed (4 scew removed for a powershot A1200).

    • Then, i remove the screen (2 screws), so that the motherboard and the connecting pins are easylly accessible.

    • In the second picture, you can see that near the pins, there is a "+" and a "-" sign. Here, by gently pressing them with a screwdriver, I noticed that one of them was completly loose. That is the reason of the problem.

    • Then, it is simple to fix it by soldering the loose connection.

    • The problems comes from the fact that the battery pins are directly solded to the motherboard, therefore the force exerted to maintain the good contact with the battery is applied to the soldering, which may eventually brake.

    • Next, remount every thing in back order. Pay attention to keep the screen clean (remove any fingerprints), and every thing should work fine...
