My camera samsung when turned on , the lens out and log in again and power then die

Suspect battery - won't hold a charge. Go to Walmart, borrow a replacement battery that is charged, and test the camera - if no issues with borrowed battery, purchase a new one. Enjoy.
DO NOT force the lens in or out, the gears are tiny and very fragile - another possibility, if the lens moves and then stops and the power dies - gears are jammed or broken. But go for the battery test first. Good luck.

Battery is not charing from charger for Sony Camera model no DSC-5750


I presume the model you have is the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S750.

If the battery is not charging it could be down to a number of reasons:

1. The contacts on the battery or charger could be corroded or dirty; clean them with a cotton bud and an alcohol solution.

2. Check the battery contacts are making contact with those on the charger

3. The battery could have died. Solution - buy a new battery

4. The charger could have died. Solution - buy a new charger

Another possibility is the battery is actually charging but the power system on the camera is faulty.

Apologies it's not a definitive answer but it gives you some suggestions.

Internal memory full

Do you have an SD card you can insert? You can move images that are on the camera from the camera to the card, and that should open it all back up.

If that isn't the problem, try a fresh set of batteries. It could be that you have too low of power to do what you want to do, like right before the batteries die. I recommend the BLUE Energizer batteries - they do a great job in digital cameras, outlasting any other type I've tried. Just date them on the side with a Sharpie, and be surprized when they need changed the next time. Movies will drain them a little faster, but with photos, they can last quite a while. By contrast, I've had as little as 8 photos with regular alkalines before they died.

Recharchable battery will not charge olympus 850sw

You can download a manual at this site.
It sounds like your battery is dead. How long have you had this camera? If the battery is not charged properly it will cause the life time to be cut in half or more. When charging these batteries you have to let them die completely before charging. This could be a major problem if your in the middle of taking pictures. I have two batteries for all my cameras that way I always have one on stand by. Hope this works. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

DSC-W120 Sony. Movie record time frame

I'm afraid that Sony did not think that this was an important feature. The camera is inherently limited to ~10 minutes. There's nothing you can do to make this happen. See this page from Sony (it's a google cached version because the actual Sony page was down when I checked). Scroll down to where it says "MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode"

Camera shows there are no pictures

The type of memory in the pix micro is called volatile RAM. Unlike flash memory that you find in thumb drives that do not require a charge to store data the volatile RAM needs a charge to hold anything. If you left the pictures on the camera the memory will be pulling a charge from the batteries constantly until the pictures are downloaded to your computer and then removed from the camera or until the battery dies or is removed. Replace the battery with a new and it should be fine. Just be sure you download the pictures to your computer and then delete them from the camera to maintain good battery life.
Also make sure you install the software on your computer before connecting the camera.

I Charged My Battery And It Takes About 5 Seconds For The Battery To Die. I Charge It Agan And It Does The Same Thing.

You need to replace the battery. Batteries have a finite life, and may die before they are time expired if they have gone through excessive charging cycles.

I have a samsung digimax 201

Digital cameras in general use massive amounts of power to supply their internal electronics and that big, beautiful, bright LCD view screen.

We switched to 2500ma NiMH rechargeable batteries. At first they would barely work, about 25 shots and they would die, after 5 to 10 discharge/ recharge cycles though, they now work great. I recharge them every night and like to leave at least one set on the charger all the time to keep it 'topped up'. Most chargers have this feature, ours even has a built in fan for when the batteries get hot (they do on fast-charge mode).

Now the rechargeables work great, we recently went to a race for my daughter and took 1.5 gigs of photos and movies on one set of batteries! Amazing, considering with standard AAs, we would get about 6-10 minutes of 640x480 movies on a set of batteries.

Our rechargeable set is a cheapo Walmart close out (got it for $15- four batteries and charger!) by Digital Concepts.

Hope this helps,
