Firmware update always has a degree of risk.
If the update fails;
sending the camera to the manufacturer is usually the only option.
So I decided to update the firmware on my Canon PowerShot A70 (stupidly)
I followed the instructions to the word, and it says at the end up the update process the camera with automatically shut off.
Ok cool so that all went well.
However now it does not turn on.
Any suggestions? I contacted canon and they want me to send it in so there techs can "evaluate" the problem.
I suppose there is no way to fix this on my own if the thing wont even turn on anymore. What is the deal with this crap. I could understand if i used weak batteries or touched a button but it was stationary on its tripod.
