    I am having the same problem. It was working fine until July when I last used it. But when I turned on the camera recently, it would not start. I changed the battery. Made sure that batteries were in correctly, but still it would not start.

My t5-1000 won't turn on. I have changed the batteries and still nothing, what could this be?

open the unit up and check if battery tabs touch main board, bend them out a little to make sure that they do touch.
if this does not help and you are sure that batteries are good and in correct position - you will have to buy new unit

Kodak c340 won't turn on

Hello Carol, Are these batteries new and name brand ? It sure sounds like low battery power, Those cheap batteries found in some stores do not have the energy to boot a camera even when new out of the package. The camera has a very high demand to start up. I own several cameras that will not turn on with brand new cheap batteries.
Best Regards, Russell

Make sure the battery is installed correctly.Try opening, then closing the cover to the memory card and battery compartment while holding pressure against it until you hear it click closed. Then try to power it up. The camera will not power up if the cover is not properly closed.

Phantom battery won't charge


Are you sure your battery charger is working correctly. Have you tried it on another battery? Possibly, there is a wiring problem, or your battery is the type that needs distilled water - Try another known good and charged battery with your scooter before purchasing a new one to ensure that the wiring is not faulty.

New batteries and won't turn on

You might want to check the batteries, and make sure that they're in the correct way. If they are, then you either purchased bad batteries, or your 83 suffered a catastrophic failure/broke

I have a 1992 Cadillac deVille and the battery discharges overnight. If I don't disconnect the battery, it will be dead in the morning. I checked all the fuses and number 14 and 15 show a 12 volt current...

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If the battery light is on, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be replaced to resolve the problem.

If the battery won't hold charge even on a new alternator then the problem will be on the battery itself. It surely is in the end of it's service life and replacement will be necessary.

You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This will reset the system and can get the battery light off.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My wireless mouse is plugged in and on but the mouse won,t work i put new batteries in

Some wireless mouses and keyboards come with a disk. Did yours? If so, install it. You can also try to configure your computer to use the wireless mouse. For windows vista, go to --- Control panel>hardware and sound--- there you can change your mouse and keyboard settings.... hope this helps
