Re: The camera shuts down without giving any warning. Is...

Such a symptom may occur because alkaline batteries have a characteristic that reduces the capacity sharply during use. The DiMAGE 7 is designed to have a margin before it shuts itself down even if the battery is exhausted while saving the capture image data to a Compact Flash. The data will not be lost. Because it consumes more power than other Compact Flash cards for operation and data storage, users of IBM Microdrive must use Nickel Metal Hydride cells.

I dropped my z20 on the floor, and since it is "dead" - no juice - and charged battery makes no difference? WHAT CAN I DO???

I'm afraid the only thing you can do is accept that is is defect. Without any skills in repairing electronic gear, I don't think you will manage to repair it yourself. If you want to know how it can be stripped, jus to see if you can fine anything causing the complete shut down, look on fixit dot com. you know how to type in a webpage, but to avoid me guessing what letters are in the box, I won't give the complete name correct.

My camera tends to just shut down. I'm thinking it's overheating possibly? Removing battery does not reset. Very unpredictable and of course, it goes without saying, frustrating. Is there a way...

If the camera just shuts down without warning the problem most probably is the battery. Often times devices such as cameras lose contact with their points for the battery and at that point since there is no power to the system the system automatically shuts down. Check how well the battery sits inside the unit if it has room for shaking and probably loss of contact try getting something to support it so as to ensure proper contact. If. This does not work then component inside the units board is bad and the unit needs to be opened and examined.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

On attempted power-up, camera begins to start up, then gives off three beeps and shuts down.

Check your battery condition and see if its full charged. If you pass this step, check if the battery is seated correctly in its place. Try to power on the cam with a DC connection and see if its doing the same symptom. If after this step you encounter the same problem, get your card out and try to start it without memory card, If again the problem persists, try to check it at a professional repair shop for a possible defective board.

Memory Card Error

Memory cards can often become corrupt or even fail without warning due to any multitude of reasons. For example, if your camera was to shut down whilst writing to the card it could corrupt the data on it. Ideally, this shouldnt happen but a defective battery or even aftermarket batteries may fail to alert the camera of its low state and then results in sudden loss of data. Also, it is important that any new cards purchased for a camera are formatted in the camera when first inserted. If your card has become corrupt, it may pay to invest in a qaulity brand memory card reader like Sandisk or Lexar as they often come with image recovery software which will aid you in retreiving images, providing you havent taken new pictures over the top of the old ones of course. Any good photo or computer store should be able to point you in the right direction. If the card in question continues to give you trouble, it may be time to invest in a new good qaulity card. Losing images for the sake of a few dollars savings on a cheap card is not really worth it. Regards...

Canon G5 Lens error message

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

Canon A75 stuck between ON & OFF after uploading photos

My Canon A75 has the EXACT same problem. I have always handled it with care. When I was taking photos with it, the camera suddenly started shutting down without a low battery warning. It just started shutting down, but it stopped with the lens still sticking half way out. Like yours, the top green light flashes when I try pressing the power button. Any ideas?
