Hi,

In some cases such as your concern, it is possible that the battery terminals/prongs of the camera are dirty corroded. It would then be necessary to clean and scrape them. Additionally, it sometimes help to slightly bend the prongs(or stretch if spring type) the said battery terminals so as they provide more pressure/contact to the actual batteries themselves.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Battery doesn't hold charge for more than a week


All batteries will eventually fail to hold a charge. The battery chemistry and how you charge it can change how long the battery will last. The DMC-FS4 has a Lithium-ion battery so it shouldn't have as much of the memory issue of older rechargeable batteries. (This is the "you routinely recharge the battery when it's at 50% then it always stops working at 50% charge" problem.)

How old is your battery? Eventually you will need a new battery but the time to replacement will depend on the number of recharge cycles. With a Li-ion battery, I'd expect several thousand recharges before failure. Temperature and usage will effect this. The battery does lose charge even when not used.

Be careful, some versions of the firmware look for Panasonic's specific batteries or a "that match the Panasonic rigorous specs".

I've seen a few devices where the charger failed before the battery. If a new battery doesn't seem to be charging, replace the charger. I hope this helps.

My fuji finepix s5000 has lost power


see this causes and proceed . God bless you
If the camera won't turn on, check the batteries, or connect the camera to an AC adapter. If that doesn't work, remove all batteries, disconnect the AC adapter, wait a minute, reinsert batteries and reconnect the adapter.
If the flash doesn't work, the camera won't take pictures, or the screen keeps turning off, check that the batteries are strong.

It doesn't power on


Your camera can be defected. If you buy new batteries, and it still doesn't work, than you'll probably want to send it back to the manufacturer. First, call them and tell them your problem, and if that doesn't work, than you might want to carefully examine your camera, to check if everything is in the correct place, and their all working correctly.

Dropped camera


Remove the batteries and reinstall them. If that doesn't do it, you may have to face the fact that you've broken your camera.

Hello,

Did you happen to drop it accidentally? Or accidentally applied force into your camera? If yes, then there is big chance you will gonna have to replace the whole lens! If not, then it might just be dirt stuck inside your lens mechanism. To fix it, hold your camera with the lens facing the ground. Then, tap your camera repeatedly. Start with light tapping to moderate. If that doesn't work, spray condensed air directly into the lens part of your camera.

Try rechargeables anyway just in case.Sometimes with age these cameras don't work well with alkalines. If that still doesn't work then I would suggest contacting your local Nikon authorized service center.

When I turn on the camera the lens comes out and then retracks and it says to turn the power off and on again. when I turn the camera off it says the same thing


Hi, I have to say that's a problem I've seen fairly often with the Sony W320. My suggestion is to take out the battery and make sure it's fully charged then put it back in. If that doesn't work I'd contact Sony.

Camera "dead"


Did you try taking the batteries out? If not, try that and then put them back in again. This might reset the camera back to normal. Also, try turning the dial. Make sure it is at the camera setting, then try shutting it off. Further, move the dial to Set-up, and scroll down to the Reset all setting, press the right arrow and answer "Reset".
