    My HP R742 does the same thing, it works when it's plugged into my PC with the USB cord but I don't understand why it won't work when it's not plugged in.

First check the batteries (are they fully charged, are they inserted correctly). Next connect the camera to an AC adapter (if available). Try to turn the camera back on. If it works, then try different batteries. If the camera is still not working, after checking the trouble shooting section in your camera manual, call the camera manufacturers support desk.

The camera will not turn on, batt r charged. Internal batt is good


How do you know that batteries are fully charged? If it won't power up then the indicator won't tell you their level. Pull both batteries. Push the power button (using what minimal power is left anywhere in the system.) Plug the camera into the external power source (mine has a base that will charge your battery, and supplies a cord for power to the camera.). If it still doesn't power up with the external power source, then I would say there's something wrong, but I'm betting it's the battery/batteries.

I can't turn on the camera, even with a fully charged battery.


The battery contacts are like little springs, as the camera gets jostled these can stop making good contact. Open the battery case and try force holding the battery against the contacts (You may need to hold a piece of metal across the bottom of the battery as you push) Then see if the camera comes on.

If it does, you may have to stuff, pull, or rig the battery to fit more securely.

Lens stuck, green Power light flashes, nothing happens.


get a butter knife or any thin object like that and use it to push out the lens and turning it on at the same time  you will hear a clicking noise which is normal  once completely out, use your hand with a gentle but firm presure move it form left to right 
and then hopefully it should work after that
